SEATTLE -- Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette will undergo surgery Monday afternoon at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas to stabilize ligament damage in his neck that he sustained during a collision in Sunday's 13-12 win over the Cowboys.

Lockette has full motion and feeling in all extremities and the team has announced that his prognosis is good. An update on Lockette's status will be provided following surgery later Monday afternoon.

In his Monday morning interview with 710 ESPN Seattle, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the surgery would put an early end Lockette's 2015 season.

Lockette was injured when he was running down the field on punt coverage and appeared to be engaged with another Dallas Cowboys player before he turned and was hit by safety Jeff Heath.
