Max Unger: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
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
A second-round pick in 2009, Unger has developed into one of the league's best centers. He was named to his second Pro Bowl last season and was an All-Pro in 2012. Unger missed three games last year with injuries.
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.
