Surgery for Pochman

Posted Sep 20, 2002


Kicker Owen Pochman, who is on injured reserve, had surgery today on his left knee. Pochman had microfracture surgery, the same procedure that Jason Sehorn and Dusty Zeigler had last January.

Rookie receiver Tim Carter, who has not played this season because of rib and back injuries, is practicing, but it's uncertain when he will play.

"He's practicing well and he's getting healthier," Jim Fassel said. "I'd like to incorporate him into the things we're doing. But as each week goes, it's harder to crack the lineup."

Kicker Owen Pochman, who is on injured reserve, had surgery today on his left knee. Pochman had microfracture surgery, the same procedure that Jason Sehorn and Dusty Zeigler had last January. The operation stimulates proper bleeding in the knee, where two pieces of bone were rubbing together.

The Giants lead the all-time regular season series against Seattle, 6-3. The series dates back to 1976. This is the sixth game between the teams in Giants Stadium, where the Giants own a 4-1 advantage over Seattle. Last season, the Giants defeated the Seahawks, 27-24, at Giants Stadium.
