Fant, the presumptive starter going into the regular season, was hurt midway through the second quarter of Friday's game against the Vikings.

"It's heartbreaking. It's so unfortunate for George", Carroll said. The team training staff attended to Fant on the field and placed an air splint around his lower right leg before he was taken away on a cart. "And then he's gonna be in trouble, you know, getting back this season, got a knee injury that requires surgery". Fant bulked up from 296 pounds to 320 pounds. Fant's transition was made even more remarkable considering that he played only 12 snaps of football at Western Kentucky as a tight end. For the Seahawks, left tackle George Fant has an injury that may keep him out for a while. Luke Joeckel, who can play both left tackle and left guard, said on the Seahawks postgame show that he would be willing to slide over from left guard if needed.
