Seahawks injury update: Bobby Wagner game-time decision vs Rams; K.J. Wright (concussion) has ‘good day’
The Seahawks will have to be patient before finding out whether their two Pro Bowl linebackers will be able to play Sunday in a battle with the Los Angeles Rams for the NFC West Division lead.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll said in a press conference Monday afternoon that Bobby Wagner will be a game-time decision against Los Angeles, while K.J. Wright had a “good day” Monday after suffering a concussion the day before against the Jaguars. Carroll did not expand on whether that meant Wright could play this week.
Wagner was ruled out in the third quarter of the Jaguars game due to his hamstring issue. Wright suffered his injury late in the third quarter.
If the Seahawks can’t play without both Wagner and Wright, it would give them five Pro Bowlers out of action on their defense alone as Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor and Cliff Avril have all suffered season-ending injuries.
The defense could see the return of defensive end Dion Jordan against the Rams, though. Carroll said Jordan is expected back in practice Wednesday from a neck injury.
