K.J. Wright: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Wright -- who fractured his foot in Week 14 -- will play Sunday against the 49ers, the Associated Press reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Wright's anticipated return will likely send fellow linebacker Malcom Smith to a bench role, but his return is a bit of good news for the Seahawks (who ruled out wideout Percy Harvin on Friday) heading into Sunday's NFC championship game.
Wright (foot) was a full practice participant Thursday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Wright returned to practice Wednesday as a limited participant, then took the next step just one day later. He's been out since early December but seems to be trending in the right direction for Sunday's NFC Championship Game. If Wright is able to go, Malcom Smith will likely return to a bench role, despite playing well in Wright's absence.

Wright is expected to be out for approximately six weeks, after breaking a bone in his foot during Sunday's loss to the 49ers, Sports Radio KJR's Curtis Crabtree reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

A playoff return would seem to represent Wright's best-case scenario, as he's expected to miss the rest of the regular season. The Seahawks will likely turn to Malcolm Smith as a replacement, while Wright focuses on getting healthy for the postseason. Prior to suffering the foot injury, Wright recorded three tackles in Sunday's game, bringing his total to 80 takedowns (46 solo) for the season.
Wright totaled six tackles and a pass defensed but played larger than his stats might indicate in Seattle's blowout victory against the Saints on Monday night.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Wright made plays all over the field and delivered some big hits. He also helped hold Saints tight end Jimmy Graham to three catches on nine targets. Seattle double-teamed Graham with a cornerback and a linebacker or a safety. Much of the time, it was Wright on Graham, particularly on third down where the Saints went 6-for-15.
Wright recorded 11 tackles in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers.

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Wagner has decisively established himself as Seattle's top linebacker, but Wright seems safely locked in as the team's other nickel linebacker, meaning Wright should comfortably make it to triple-digit tackles as long as he plays 16 games. He missed one game and most of another due to a concussion, and as a result he finished with 96 tackles to go along with one sack and one interception. Wright's per-game tackle numbers should improve in 2013, though, because Leroy Hill is no longer around, and Wright should surpass the 866 defensive snaps he saw in 2012.
