The Seattle Seahawks expect tight end Will Dissly to be healthy by Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season in the wake of his Achilles injury that ended his 2019 campaign. The report comes from Tom Pelissero of NFL.com, who said the Seahawks expect Dissly to complete his rehabilitation in time for the start of the year.
The #Seahawks signed Greg Olsen, and they expect Will Dissly to be ready Week 1, too. If both can stay healthy — a big if — that's quite a 1-2 TE mismatch punch for Russell Wilson. @nflnetwork pic.twitter.com/qRQarUhe7T

“My understanding is they fully expect in Seattle for Will Dissly to be healthy and ready to go by Week 1 next season,” Pelissero said.
Coach Pete Carroll stated at the end of the season that Dissly’s rehab was already proceeding smoothly. This is great news for the Seahawks, who recently signed veteran TE Greg Olsen to bolster the unit.
