RENTON, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette will undergo surgery to stabilize ligaments in his neck after being taken off the field on a backboard during Sunday's game against Dallas.

The Seahawks released a statement Monday morning that Lockette will undergo surgery at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. The team says that Lockette has full motion and feeling in all his extremities and a good prognosis.

Pete Carroll said on his radio show Monday on KIRO-AM in Seattle that Lockette's season is over and he did not know if it was a potentially career-threatening injury.

Lockette was injured when he was running down the field on punt coverage and appeared to be engaged with another Dallas Cowboys player before he turned and was hit by safety Jeff Heath.
