Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said SS Kam Chancellor (neck) is done for the season.
This was always the expectation, but Chancellor has yet to be placed on injured reserve. That will likely happen this week. Asked if Chancellor will play again, Carroll said, "It's up to him," highlighting the serious nature of the injury. Only 29, it would be a shame if Chancellor is not able to continue his career.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll hasn't ruled out SS Kam Chancellor (neck) returning this season.

This conflicts with earlier reports on Chancellor. Seattle is holding out hope Chancellor can make a late season return. Chancellor wouldn't be available until late in the playoffs if he lands on IR.
Nov 18 - 7:09 PM

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (neck) will miss the rest of the season.

That's back-to-back body blows to the Seattle secondary after Richard Sherman was lost for the season with a torn Achilles' suffered in Week 10 against Arizona. Chancellor was injured late in that same game. 29-year-old Chancellor was having one of his best seasons, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 5 safety, receiving strong marks for both his run defense and pass coverage. FS Earl Thomas is expected back this week. Bradley McDougald will likely replace Chancellor.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (neck) isn't expected to play in Week 11.

Chancellor hasn't practiced since suffering a stinger last Thursday night. His official status won't be known until Saturday, but he's trending toward not playing. The Seahawks are expected to get FS Earl Thomas back this week.
Nov 17 - 4:39 PM

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (stinger) is undergoing more tests.

Dishing out concrete injury information left and right on Thursday, coach Pete Carroll was more vague on Chancellor's status, suggesting he's legitimately questionable for Monday's game against the Falcons. A potential absence would come as the Seahawks get Earl Thomas back, and adjust to life without Richard Sherman.
Nov 16 - 4:04 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expects SS Kam Chancellor (questionable, ankle) to play Sunday.

Chancellor missed most of the practice week, but should play his normal snaps. Bradley McDougald will start opposite Chancellor with Earl Thomas (hamstring) out.
Nov 3 - 5:32 PM

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (ankle) is questionable for Week 9 against Washington.

Chancellor didn't do much in practice this week with his ankle injury. With Earl Thomas out, the Seahawks could be down both their starting safeties. Delano Hill would start if Chancellor sits.
Nov 3 - 4:21 PM

Seahawks signed SS Kam Chancellor to a three-year, $36-million extension through 2020.

Both coach Pete Carroll and Chancellor hinted a deal was close on Monday. ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the contract includes $25 million in guaranteed money, and the new money average will make Chancellor the third-highest paid safety in the league. With Chancellor locked up, the Seahawks may turn their attention to FS Earl Thomas, who has two years left on his deal.
Aug 1 - 10:55 AM

Coach Pete Carroll and contract-year SS Kam Chancellor expressed optimism in Chancellor landing an extension.

"Yeah, I think it's been positive on both ends and hopefully it gets done any time now, but I feel like it's been positive on both ends," Chancellor said. Scheduled to make just over $7 million this season, 29-year-old Chancellor is likely seeking $10 million-plus annually. It sounds like it'll get done.
Jul 31 - 6:27 PM

Contract-year SS Kam Chancellor says he's yet to have extension talks with the Seahawks.

Coach Pete Carroll said the team would like to change that. Now 29, Chancellor has had some injury issues in recent years, but his play hasn't fallen off at all. Third-round S Delano Hill looms as a potential replacement, however.
Jun 13 - 7:20 PM

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (ankle) has been limited at OTAs.

Chancellor is being moved slowly as he recovers from offseason ankle surgeries. There’s been no concern over his training camp status. Entering a contract year, GM John Schneider has been noncommittal on an extension for Chancellor. The Seahawks drafted third round SS Delano Hill as a possible replacement.
Jun 3 - 4:16 PM

The Seattle Times believes Dolphins S Reshad Jones' extension will affect negotiations between the Seahawks and walk-year SS Kam Chancellor.

Jones' deal works out to a five-year, $60-million pact with $35 million guaranteed, making him one of the highest-paid safeties in the league along with Eric Berry. Chancellor plays a more defined and limited role than those two, but the ever-increasing safety market means Chancellor will certainly be looking for a raise on his $7 million annual average. With Earl Thomas already making $10 million a year, Seattle will have some tough decisions to make this summer.
Mar 11 - 7:54 AM

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor underwent offseason surgery on both ankles.

Chancellor has had offseason ankle scopes in the past to remove loose bone spurs, so this isn't much of a concern. He should be fine for training camp.
Mar 1 - 12:49 PM

Kam Chancellor (groin) is no longer listed on the Seahawks' Week 10 injury report.

Chancellor is ready to resume his role as the starting strong safety after putting in a full week of practice. His return will be a huge boost to a Seahawks' secondary that will need as much help as they can get Sunday against Tom Brady and the red-hot Patriots.
Fri, Nov 11, 2016 04:15:00 PM

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (groin) returned to a full practice on Wednesday.

It's the first time Chancellor has practiced since going down in Week 4. Barring a setback, he should play Sunday night against New England. With Kelcie McCray struggling, Chancellor's return is a huge lift for Seattle's secondary
