According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Malik McDowell the former Michigan State defensive lineman was involved in a pretty severe ATV accident and could miss the entire 2017/2018 NFL season.
Seahawks’ coach Pete Carroll confirmed McDowell’s injury after Seattle’s training camp practices. He could not confirm the severity of McDowell’s injury, and told reporters that McDowell’s injury could very well be a season-ending injury.
McDowell started 23 games as a Spartans defensive lineman, and made the Associated Press’ All-Big Ten Second Team in 2015 and the First Team in 2015. He recorded 90 tackles and 7.5 sacks in 36 games at Michigan State.
