NFL Rumors: Kam Chancellor Likely Done For Season With Neck Injury

The Legion of Boom reportedly is down another founding member.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman ruptured his Achilles against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 10, landing him on season-ending injured reserve. And now safety Kam Chancellor, who also left Seattle’s win over the Cardinals, appears headed for a similar fate, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.


Given the potential severity of neck injuries, many are wondering if Chancellor’s days in the NFL are over. But the 29-year-old reportedly is focused on returning.

The news represents another blow to the Seahawks, who, at 6-3, are looking up at the Los Angeles Rams in a surprisingly competitive NFC West.

Anyone who’s watched Seattle’s defense closely this year knows the unit isn’t nearly as imposing as it was when the Seahawks made it to back-to-back Super Bowls.

And now with Sherman and Chancellor both sidelined with significant injuries, one has to wonder if the Legion of Boom’s days as an elite NFL defense are numbered.
