Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told reporters after a Week 14 loss to the 49ers that linebacker K.J. Wrightbroke a bone in his foot and will likely need a recovery of six weeks, leaving him likely out for the remainder of the regular season, the team announced.
Wright left the game in the second quarter with the injury and was seen on the sidelines with a walking boot. He registered 80 tackles, 1.5 sacks and two defended passes in 12 games this season.
Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart has been diagnosed with a torn MCL, a team spokesman told The Charlotte Observer. Coach Ron Rivera said prior to this announcement he was hopeful Stewart would play again this season, but the new diagnosis could change Stewart's status.
