KJ Wright News
The Seattle Seahawks will re-sign linebacker K.J. Wright for two years and up to $15.5 million on Thursday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The 29-year-old missed 11 games last year with a knee injury, but he's a tackling machine when healthy. Before his injury last year, Wright had four straight seasons of 100-plus tackles, so he'll surely be an IDP force if he's healthy for Seattle. The heart of the Seahawks defense in the middle with Wright and Bobby Wagner will remain intact despite losing All-Pro safety Earl Thomas in free agency.
Seattle Seahawks linebacker KJ Wright is out for Sunday's game against Carolina due to recurring knee issues, and that makes Seattle's defense a questionable play. Carolina isn't exactly an offensive powerhouse, but Seattle has been ripped by patterns across the middle this year. The Panthers have hung a lot of points on a couple soft defenses recently, and fantasy owners should expect them to attack those middle zones just like Green Bay did last week. It can still turn out okay because of Seattle's coaching prowess, but it just rides a fine line that can fall apart if they catch a few bad bounces. Owners should probably look elsewhere this week.
Seattle Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright (knee) is doubtful to play on Thursday night against the Packers. Wright wants to make sure he's 100 percent healthy for the stretch run of the season. He had arthroscopic knee surgery in the last week of August and missed the first six games of the season. Wright has played three games but didn't feel great in Week 10. His absence is a downgrade for Seattle's interior defense and an upgrade for Packers running back Aaron Jones.
Seattle Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright is finally expected to make his season debut on Sunday against the Lions. Wright has been sidelined since August due to arthroscopic knee surgery, and he talked with reporters at length about how difficult it was to sit at home and watch road games instead of getting to be with the team. Seattle has had a top-10 defense without Wright on the field, but he should bring better coverage in the middle to help Bobby Wagner lock down that area. With Wright and Wagner healthy, Seattle has one of the best linebacker crews in the league. They'll be tested this week by Detroit, but they should be able to put up a strong fight against Matthew Stafford and company.
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said linebacker K.J. Wright (knee) will run hard this week but won't play in Week 6 against the Raiders. Wright has yet to play this year after having surgery late in training camp. They could really use his presence alongside Bobby Wagner now that Mychal Kendricks is suspended indefinitely for insider trading.
