Charlton prognosis in

Doctors went in late last night and scoped the knee of second-year cornerback Ike Charlton, which he injured last Saturday in the final exhibition game against the New Orleans Saints.

Initially, the team planned to release the results of Charlton's MRI on Monday. A 24-hour delay in producing the results led way to rumors that the corner could be out for six weeks or more.

Charlton's knee showed no tearing or damage and no blood or fluids and is likely just a hyperextension, according to his agent, Ray Savage who spoke with SeahawksInsider on Tuesday afternoon.

"It was tough to see that happen to him because he came into training camp and wanted to prove he could play," said Savage.

Charlton will miss the season opener and perhaps the second game. Either way, both the team and Charlton can breath a little easier now, as the hard work begins to pay off.
