Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says LG Luke Joeckel (knee) has a chance to play this week.

Joeckel hasn't played since his Week 6 knee scope. His return would be a needed upgrade with RG Oday Aboushi sidelined. Joeckel had a top-30 PFF grade before going down.

Seahawks LG Luke Joeckel is out 4-5 weeks after undergoing knee surgery.

Joeckel underwent an arthroscopic operation during the Seahawks' Week 6 bye. Unsurprisingly, Joeckel has been a liability on Russell Wilson's left side, though the options to replace him are even less appealing. Mark Glowinski is expected to get the first crack, though second-rounder Ethan Pocic is also a possibility. Coach Pete Carroll said both players could play in Week 7.

Seahawks LG Luke Joeckel is expected to undergo knee surgery during the team's upcoming bye week.

He'll play Sunday against the Rams before going under the knife during the Seahawks' Week 6 bye. It's unclear what the surgery will entail, though early indications suggest it could be just a minor knee scope. Those surgeries usually require 2-4 weeks for recovery. Through four games, Joeckel has earned PFF's No. 29 grade out of 73 qualifiers at guard.

Seahawks LG Luke Joeckel says he is ahead of schedule in his recovery from last year's ACL/MCL/meniscus tear.

"I think I’m a little ahead of schedule, definitely participating more than I thought I would be," said Joeckel after Seattle's last OTAs. The Seahawks have been using Joeckel at both left tackle and left guard to try to gain a feel for where he fits best. Joeckel played guard last year in Jacksonville.

Seahawks GM John Schneider was "impressed" by new OL Luke Joeckel's performance at guard last season.

The Seahawks have said Joeckel is a candidate at both left tackle and left guard, but Schneider's comments indicate he could start out on the interior. His 2016 playing time was brief for the Jaguars, but Joeckel appeared more competent at guard than tackle before shredding his knee.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll considers new OL Luke Joeckel a candidate at both left tackle and left guard.

Carroll said the team will "work it out" and put its best five up front, but seemed to hint guard was Joeckel's more likely home. "Played very well in our opinion, and that's the only opinion that counts," Carroll said, apparently of Joeckel's 2016. Joeckel was off to a decent start at his new position before tearing his ACL, MCL and meniscus in Week 4. It's another risky gambit for a team that's cavalier about its offensive line.
Mar 14 - 2:51 PM

Seahawks signed OT Luke Joeckel, formerly of the Jaguars, to a one-year, $8-million contract with $7 million guaranteed.

The former No. 2 overall pick in the 2013 draft, Joeckel was a certified bust in Jacksonville. He was kicked out of his left-tackle job in favor of Kelvin Beachum last season and moved inside to left guard. He played just 221 snaps before suffering a torn ACL, MCL, and meniscus in Week 4. The Seahawks are trying to rebuild their line. Joeckel is a worthy flier on a one-year pact.
Mar 9 - 4:09 PM

The Florida Times-Union suggests Jacksonville could bring back contract year LG Luke Joeckel.

The Jaguars are expected to move on from Joeckel, but his season-ending knee injury is going to limit his 2017 market. Joeckel played only 155 snaps at guard and never graded above league average his three years at tackle. There should still be interest in Joeckel given his draft status, but he could have to settle for prove-it offers. Re-signing with Jacksonville could be his best option.

Updating a previous item, Jaguars LG Luke Joeckel underwent season-ending surgery on Thursday to repair a torn ACL, MCL, and meniscus.

The free agent-to-be is looking like a question mark for Week 1 next season. And the former No. 2 pick has likely played his final snap with the Jaguars.

Jaguars placed LG Luke Joeckel on injured reserve with a torn left MCL and meniscus and "possibly" a torn ACL.

He's headed for surgery. Joeckel was spotted leaving the Jaguars' facility with a full leg brace and crutches on Tuesday. Patrick Omameh will man left guard in his absence. The 2013 draft bust has probably played his final snap for the Jags. Joeckel is headed for unrestricted free agency.

Luke Joeckel exited Week 4 against the Colts with a knee injury.

Joeckel went down at the end of a run play in the second quarter. He stayed on the field for a couple minutes before being helped to the locker room. Joeckel is officially doubtful to return.
Sun, Oct 2, 2016 10:41:00 AM

Jaguars OC Greg Olson said he is "very, very confident" in LG Luke Joeckel.

Joeckel struggled in his switch to left guard late in the preseason, which is not a surprise considering he has struggled throughout his career. Still, the Jaguars will hope he can be a better fit a guard than he was at tackle. The 2013 No. 2 overall pick is in the final year of his rookie deal.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell confirmed Luke Joeckel is an option at left guard.

"It’s an option or he wouldn’t have taken snaps there [this spring]," Caldwell said. Joeckel lost his job at left tackle to Kelvin Beachum, and the only opening along the offensive line is at left guard, where Mackenzy Bernadeau took first-team reps at OTAs. In a contract year after the Jags declined his fifth-year option, Joeckel could do a lot for his value if he earned and kept a starting job at guard.
Mon, Jul 18, 2016 11:15:00 AM

Jaguars OL Luke Joeckel said he plans on "competing" for the left tackle job.

The Jaguars made it fairly clear they are ready to move on from Joeckel after not picking up his fifth-year option and signing Kelvin Beachum, but he is not going to accept his fate lying down. "I’m going in planning on winning the job," Joeckel said. "It all comes down to my play and I know that." Despite the offseason confidence, it would be a surprise if Joeckel opened the season at left tackle.
