Cornerback Tharold Simon will have minor knee surgery this week and seems likely to miss the first month of the season.
Coach Pete Carroll called the problem “minimal” but said now is the time to do it. The Seahawks have a bye in Week 4.
“He’s got real minor stuff to get done,” Carroll said. “We’ve got to get some things cleaned up. We’re going to try to do this really quickly.”
Assuming this is arthroscopic surgery, it typically requires 2-4 weeks of recovery time.
