Seahawks safety Quandre Diggs suffered an ankle fracture-dislocation in week 18. This is a gruesome looking injury, but long-term it comes with fairly promising results. Diggs was sent for surgery to reset the ankle and repair the damage, which included a fibula fracture. This injury is often associated with ligament damage as well. Doctors gave Diggs a 4-5 month expected recovery timeline, and he is right on track. Diggs had his cast removed about three weeks ago and is progressing well. Now two months removed from surgery, there is hope that he can be fully cleared by June.
Now, that doesn’t mean he will be 100%, but Diggs could be healthy enough to get back out on the field and go through some football drills. If that goes well expect Diggs to be a full participant by training camp.
Diggs was acquired by Seattle from the Lions during the 2019 season and started 38 games for the franchise. He was a Pro Bowl selection in 2020 and 2021, quickly making his mark as an important piece in this defense. Now Diggs is a free agent, so a healthy comeback before the 2022 season begins will be important for his next contract.
