Robert Gallery Injury: Groin Requires Surgery, Out Four To Six Weeks

The Seattle Seahawks are looking at a long season ahead, and now injuries are beginning to pile up. Left guard Robert Gallery, who has been playing hurt for a few games and didn't look too good against the Pittsburgh Steelers, has suffered an unknown groin injury that will sideline him until at least the middle of the season. Gallery will have to undergo surgery that'll keep him out four to six weeks, reports Curtis Crabtree of 950 KJR Radio. Crabtree also tweets that head coach Pete Carroll announced that James Carpenter will remain the Seahawks right tackle and that Paul McQuistan will take Gallery's place.

The Seahawks offensive line has been under siege in the first two games of the regular season, averaging a meager 2.7 rushing yards per carry and giving up already ten sacks on the season. Losing Gallery will make their task all the more stiffer, as Seattle isn't a particularly deep team with solid offensive line parts.

Also, if you want some nightmare fuel, do a Google image search of "Paul McQuistan." Slightly terrifying to face up against a man like that.
