Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Coach Pete Carroll suggested Unger could be at risk of missing the remainder of the regular season, as second-degree sprains can often take up to six weeks to fully heal. The 2014 Pro Bowler already missed four games earlier this season with a foot injury, and his absence could be felt in the Seahawks' ground game.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Unger will move back to right offensive guard this season after taking the starting center gig late last season. A 2009 second-round pick, Unger struggled some as a rookie, but he showed more upside than most of his O-Line comrades. Expect him to take another step in 2010.
Unger could land a starting offensive line job at some point this season. He can play center or guard and likely will be used liberally even if he remains in a backup role.
