NFL: The Seattle Seahawks have likely lost defensive lineman Greg Scruggs for the 2013 season after he tore his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
Scruggs underwent reconstructive arthroscopic surgery on Thursday at the Seattle Surgery Center, the team announced.
Scruggs was a seventh-round pick out of Louisville in 2012 and became more of a contributor as the season progressed. He played in 11 games during the regular season and had two sacks. He also appeared in both playoff games.
The Seahawks open a three-day rookie minicamp today in Renton, Wash.

Hollywood Park to shut its doors
HORSE RACING: Betfair Hollywood Park will close by year’s end and the 75-year-old racetrack property in Inglewood will be developed by its owner.
The track announced on Thursday what had been anticipated since Churchill Downs sold it to Hollywood Park Land Co. in 2005.
Track President Jack Liebau says the land in the Los Angeles suburb now is worth more, and racing will end when the autumn meet concludes on Dec. 22. Triple Crown winners Citation, Seattle Slew and Affirmed ran at Hollywood Park.
