The Seattle Seahawks’ tight end was injured in the first quarter of Seattle’s game against the Arizona Cardinals Sunday and had to be carted off the field. Afterward, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll announced Dissly had suffered a right patellar injury.’s Ian Rapoport reported that Dissly tore the patellar tendon and will miss the remainder of the 2018 season.

Dissly suffered the injury while landing awkwardly after a 5-yard reception with 7:52 remaining in the first quarter. The Bozeman native was Seattle’s second-leading receiver coming into the game with 151 yards and two touchdowns.

Dissly was selected by the Seahawks in the fourth round of the NFL Draft in May after being named second-team all-Pac 12 at the University of Washington as a senior. He was named the Montana Gatorade Player of the Year in 2013 after leading Bozeman to the Class AA state championship.
