"I'm really broken-hearted about George Fant getting hurt," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. "Just unfortunate. He's done so much and come so far."
Fant suffered the injury with 8 minutes, 49 seconds left in the second quarter. He was moving backward in pass protection when teammate Justin Britt, who was on the ground, rolled into him. Fant immediately went to the ground and clutched the knee. Trainers tended to him for several minutes before carting Fant off the field.
Thank you all for your support 🙏🏾 I'm in good hands.— George Fant (@GeorgeFant74) August 19, 2017
Fant started 10 games at left tackle last year and was going to start there again in 2017.
Carroll said earlier this summer that Fant had the best offseason of any Seahawks player. Fant bulked up from 296 pounds to 320 pounds.
