Phillip Dorsett has yet to make his debut with the Seattle Seahawks and it appears as though it won’t be happening any time soon.
Head coach Pete Carroll said on Monday that Dorsett continues to struggle to move beyond a foot injury that has kept him on injured reserve since September.
“Phillip Dorsett is not doing well,” he said. “His foot has really not responded. We’ll let you know. We haven’t done anything about that yet but he’s not ready to go.”
Dorsett’s foot issues first surfaced during training camp in August. The Seahawks kept him out of practice in hopes of the issue quieting down and allowing him to get back early in the season. When that didn’t happen through the first two weeks of the season, Dorsett was placed on injured reserve, the story went on to say.

Phillip Dorsett's disappearing act has now lasted three games, as he hasn't caught a pass since Week13. This will be Dorsett's most successful season in New England, but he simply hasn't panned out as a reliable starter for the Patriots, and there are far too many better bets at the wide receiver position to consider playing Dorsett in fantasy.
