Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly is walked off the field during the first half of an NFL football game against the Cleveland Browns Sunday in Cleveland. 

CLEVELAND — Bozeman native Will Dissly left the first half of the Seattle Seahawks game on Sunday with an Achilles injury.

According to an Associated Press story, Dissly went to the ground untouched in the second period after quarterback Russell Wilson overthrew him.

The 6-foot-4, 265-pound Dissly, a 2014 Bozeman High graduate, did not have a reception in the Seahawks’ 32-28 win over the Browns. This season, the tight end has 23 receptions for 262 yards and four touchdowns. He has also rushed the ball one time for seven yards.

According to the AP, Dissly left FirstEnergy Stadium on crutches with his foot in an immobilizing boot.

In his postgame press conference, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed it was an Achilles injury and called the injury “serious.”

In calling the injury “devastating,” Carroll said Dissly will undergo tests to determine the extent of the injury.

“It’s a big loss, he’s been playing great football,” Carroll said.

During his rookie season last year, Dissly tore his right patellar tendon in the fourth game and missed the rest of the season. He finished with eight receptions for 156 yards and two touchdowns.

Dissly was drafted out of the University of Washington by the Seahawks in the fourth round of the 2018 draft.
