Seahawks DT Colin Cole underwent surgery on his left ankle a few weeks ago, according to Dave Mahler of 950-KJR in Seattle, and the ankle is in a boot.
"Don't think I'll be cleared right away. Hope to be back as soon as they'll let me," Cole said, according ot Mahler.
Cole injured the ankle in 2010 and missed five games. He recorded 44 tackles, one sack and five passes defensed last season after starting 15 games in 2009. Cole spent five seasons with the Packers before signing with Seattle.
