Ex-Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette On His Career-Ending Injury
Levack & Goz were live from radio row in Minnesota on Thursday and were fortunate enough to interview former Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette.
Lockette played 5 seasons in the NFL before suffering a career-ending injury in a game against the Dallas Cowboys in 2015. The injury came on a punt coverage play in which Lockette was blindsided by Dallas' Jeff Heath. Lockette suffered ligament damage in his neck and retired that following off-season.
When asked how he was doing since the injury, Lockette replied that he's doing well:
"I'm good. I'm good. It's a bump in the road, but you keep moving forward," Lockette said. "Of course, I've hit people 20-times harder than that, but I just think that it was; sometimes when the body's relaxed and then you take high impact and then you hit the ground in an awkward way, then certain things happen. I don't think it was the direct hit, I think it was a lot of things that happened in that second that went wrong."
