Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll revealed Monday that right tackle Breno Giacomini underwent arthroscopic knee surgery to repair "loose bodies" from cartilage damage.
Carroll expects Giacomini back on the field in "a pretty short time," according to ESPN.com.
Along with left tackle Russell Okung and center Max Unger, Giacomini was one of three offensive line starters who missed Sunday's 23-20 victory over the Houston Texans.
It was the third time in four games that Russell Wilson struggled to move the Seahawks' offense as his line was losing the battle of the trenches. J.J. Watt had one of the most dominant performances of his career against fill-in right tackle Michael Bowie and right guard J.R. Sweezy.
Until the Seahawks get all three of their veteran starters back up front, pass protection will remain a concern with three of the next four games away from the cozy confines of CenturyLink Field.
