RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Replacing Tyler Lockett isn’t simple. The second-year wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks is more than just a pass catcher. He’s the primary kickoff and punt returner for the Seahawks as well. So when Lockett went down with a gruesome broken right leg last week against Arizona there was more than just Seattle’s Number 2 wide receiver that was lost. And it’s why the Seahawks will be counting on a handful of options to try and make up for Lockett’s absence.
