Following a hit on punt coverage that left Ricardo Lockette motionless on the AT&T Stadium turf during Sunday's Seahawks game against the Dallas Cowboys, it was announced Monday that the Seattle special teams ace **will undergo season-ending surgery in Dallas to stabilize ligaments in his neck** and, later, that** the surgery was a success**.
Players and coaches dedicated the second half of Sunday's game to Lockette and went to social media to publicly show their support after the game. Monday morning, the support by the 12s and NFL community was immense:
Coach Pete Carroll had no information on the long-term prognosis of Lockette's injury as it concerned his professional football career but was optimistic with the knowledge that Lockette maintained movement in all his extremities. The road to recovery is still too soon to make any guesses, but our thoughts and prayers will be with Lockette throughout the process - as it would for any family member. L.O.B. stands for Love Our Brothers or in this case, Lockette Our Brother.
