The Seattle Seahawks have a star in the making with cornerback Tariq Woolen. In his rookie season, Woolen was tied for the league-lead in interceptions with six – including returning one for a touchdown in Seattle’s 48-45 win over Detroit.
However, fans will have to wait a little longer this offseason before they can see practice highlights from the Seahawks’ top corner. Woolen recently underwent arthroscopic surgery on his knee after walking on the practice field a few weeks ago. While Woolen is sidelined for the time being, head coach Pete Carroll did give good news regarding his recovery.
When asked, Carroll elaborated how they believe it will be a 4-6 week recovery for Woolen.

If things go according to plan, it won’t be long until the 12th Man sees Woolen making plays like this again.
