RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seattle Seahawks safety Deon Grant is having wrist surgery and defensive end Patrick Kerney will undergo elbow surgery.

The team announced Thursday that both veterans were due to have their operations later in the day.

The 30-year-old Grant played the last six games with a cast over his left wrist. He said Dr. Carlton Keck, a specialist in Seattle, was to place pins in his wrist and reconstruct a torn ligament. The team expects Grant to be fully recovered by late April or May.

The 33-year-old Kerney is having surgery to remove loose cartilage and bone fragments in his left elbow. The team considers the procedure routine and says Kerney’s recovery time should be four to six weeks.
