Seahawks guard Luke Joeckel is expected to miss at least four to five weeks after having surgery on his knee. Joeckel started the first five games of the season for Seattle while working back from a torn ACL sustained last season with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Joeckel signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks in March and was eased back into a full workload during the offseason.
Small business owner Terry Smiley is urging football fans to quit watching the NFL, and he even hired a pilot to fly his message over a Jacksonville Jaguars game. Smiley paid to have a banner flown over EverBank Field for nearly two hours during the Jaguars’ game against Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. The Florida resident says fans should boycott the NFL as long as players continue to kneel during the national anthem.
