Tell Chris your opinion.

Last year, the Seattle Seahawks made the Super Bowl despite WR Darrell Jackson missing most of the regular season. This year, they hope he'll be ready to go. Unfortunately, Jackson will not be ready to play until the team's August 26th preseason game against the San Diego Chargers.

Last year, Jackson had surgery on his right knee on October 12th to repair torn cartilage. He missed ten games of the regular season, but was able to return for the playoffs. In the Super Bowl, Jackson recorded five catches for 50 yards, although most of that came in the first quarter. A few weeks after the Super Bowl, Jackson had a second knee surgery.

"He's on a program to get his leg straightened," said head coach Mike Holmgren on Thursday. "His knee is pretty good, but his muscles in his quad and so on have to be stronger, so he doesn't re-injure anything. He's right on schedule. We're setting a target date of a third preseason game."

On top of Jackson, WR D.J. Hackett will miss two to three weeks of action due to a strained right hamstring. Tight end Jerramy Stevens isn't expected to return until the third week of August either. The Seahawks have everyone scheduled to return at the same time, and if everything goes well, the Seahawks should be ready to defend their NFC Championship by opening day at full strength.
