CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Bozeman native Will Dissly left Sunday's Seattle Seahawks game with an injury and will not return, the team announced.

Dissly, the 2013 Montana Gatorade football player of the year, was off to a great start in his second NFL season. Entering Sunday's game, the Seahawks' tight end had 23 receptions for 262 yards and four touchdowns. Dissly was injured early in the second quarter of the Seahawks' game against the Browns, and the team announced he suffered an Achilles injury and would not return.

This is the second injury of Dissly's NFL career after he was selected in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Dissly suffered a season-ending knee injury in Seattle's fourth game last season, cutting his rookie season short.

Prior to the Seahawks drafting him, Dissly was a second-team all-Pac-12 performer at the University of Washington as a senior. He graduated from Bozeman High School in 2014, helping leading the Hawks to the Class AA state championship in 2013.
