Seahawks’ Giacomini has surgery on right elbow

RENTON — Seattle Seahawks starting right tackle Breno Giacomini has undergone arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow and is expected to take four to six weeks to recover.

Giacomini played through the problem in his elbow during the final weeks, appearing on Seattle’s injury report with an elbow injury late in the season.
