The one silver lining for the Seahawks after their disastrous 42-7 loss to the Rams on Sunday is that the team suffered no new major injuries. They should have some more help next Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, as well.

On Monday’s Pete Carroll Show with Brock and Salk, the Seahawks coach said that Pro Bowl linebacker K.J. Wright is expected to be back from a concussion he suffered on Dec. 10 at Jacksonville that prevented him from playing against Los Angeles.

“He should be fine. I think he’s out of the (concussion) protocol now,” Carroll said.

The status of Seattle’s other star linebacker, Bobby Wagner, will be similar next week to that for the Rams game. He played against Los Angeles, though he was noticeably hampered by a hamstring issue that he has been dealing with for about a month.

“I saw him this morning, he said he’s no worse off than last week, so he’ll be limited (in practice) this week,” Carroll said of Wagner. “We’ll see what happens.”

Carroll added that rookie defensive tackle Nazair Jones, who has missed the last three games with an ankle injury, could be back for the game in Dallas.

Rookie running back Chris Carson, who has been on Injured Reserve since breaking his leg in Week 4, is expected to return to practice this week.
