SEATTLE — The National Football League career of five-time Pro Bowl safety Kenny Easley of the Seattle Seahawks could be over because of a serious kidney ailment.
"If he has to go to dialysis, there's no way he can play football," Seahawks' president-general manager Mike McCormack said Wednesday.
Leigh Steinberg, Easley's agent, said Wednesday that "it appears that treatment will start fairly soon. . . . I think you can draw your own conclusion."
Easley's medical problem was discovered during a Phoenix physical examination Friday after Easley was traded by the Seahawks to the Cardinals for quarterback Kelly Stouffer.
