Lockette neck surgery ‘successful’ Seahawks say


LOS ANGELES: Seattle wide receiver Ricardo Lockette has had “successful” surgery to stabilize his neck after he was hurt in a scary hit in the Seahawks’ NFL game in Dallas on Sunday. “Doctors at Baylor Medical Center in Dallas performed successful neck surgery on Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette Monday,” the team said in a statement posted on its website. “He is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days, but will be up and moving as soon as Tuesday, and his neurological signs are all positive.” Cowboys safety Jeff Heath’s hard hit on a punt play shortly before halftime on Sunday left Lockette crumpled on the field, lying motionless for several minutes as he was attended by medical personnel.
