K.J. Wright Underwent Shoulder Surgery

Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider revealed on Thursday that linebacker K.J. Wright (shoulder) recently underwent shoulder surgery. However, Schneider said the surgery wasn't serious, but it remains unclear when Wright will be back. The Seahawks also drafted Texas Tech linebacker Jordyn Brooks in the first round last week, and he could slide into the weakside linebacker spot with Wright being used on the strong side. Wright also missed 11 games in 2018 after having knee surgery. Because of limitations for players rehabbing due to the coronavirus, Wright's timetable for a return could be impacted. He has primarily played on the weak side since 2013, combining with Bobby Wagner to form one of the best inside linebacking duos in their time together. Wright had 132 combined tackles last year and three interceptions, but it remains to be seen how a move to the strong side might affect his performance.

K.J. Wright A Mediocre Flex Option

Seattle Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright ranked 16th at the position in fantasy points over the last five weeks. He has 43 tackles (21 solo), no sacks and four passes defended. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a midrange matchup for linebackers, and Wright doesn't carry a ton of upside. You can consider him as a flex option, but without much sack potential, he is reliant on tackles.

K.J. Wright Banged Up But Okay

Seattle Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright had to be visited by the trainers after Alvin Kamara's touchdown run on Sunday, but he told the media after the game that he was fine. Wright said he just got the wind knocked out of him, and he should be good to go. That's a breath of fresh air for Seattle, who were saddled with their first loss of the season. Though New Orleans tallied 33 points, nowhere near all the blame hangs on the defense since 14 of those points were scored on a scoop-and-score fumble and a punt return. The Seattle defense did struggle to contain Kamara, but that's hardly a rare problem. With the whole squad healthy, the Seahawks Defense should be pretty solid moving forward.
