Golden Tate Injury: Seahawks WR's Status Still Uncertain

With Golden Tate potentially missing Sunday's season opener against the Arizona Cardinals because of a knee injury, it will be Braylon Edwards stepping into the starting role for the Seattle Seahawks. Pete Carroll told the Seattle media that Tate suffered a right knee sprain last Thursday in the Seahawks 21-3 victory over the Oakland Raiders.

The Seattle Times reports that Tate could be out for around two weeks.

Entering his third season with Seattle, Tate has 56 receptions for 609 yards. In 2011, he caught 35 balls for 382 yards and three touchdowns.

Edwards, in his eighth season out of Michigan, could use the opportunity presented by Tate's injury. He's coming off perhaps the worst season of his career. In his first season with the San Francisco 49ers, Edwards only had 15 receptions for 181 yards while playing in nine games.
