Knee injury will sideline Wistrom up to six weeks

The Associated Press

KIRKLAND - Seattle defensive end Grant Wistrom has ligament damage in his left knee and will miss up to six weeks, though coach Mike Holmgren said Monday he could be available if the Seahawks reach the playoffs.

Wistrom was hurt in the fourth quarter of last weekend's 27-23 win at Minnesota. He missed four games earlier this season with a broken bone in his left knee.

Doctors will re-examine Wistrom within two weeks, when they'll determine if the injury is healing faster than projected. If that's the case, Holmgren said Wistrom might play if Seattle is in the playoffs.

Antonio Cochran will take Wistrom's spot at right end, with linebacker Chad Brown another possibility in nickel defense packages. Brown has missed the past three games after arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, but could return for this weekend's game at the New York Jets.
