Wagner (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Wagner was unable to practice Wednesday and Thursday, and he'll be held out for Sunday's regular-season finale. He appeared in 16 games during the 2021 campaign before sustaining a sprained MCL and PCL in Week 17, and he totaled 170 tackles (93 solo), a sack, an interception, a forced fumble and five pass defenses.
Wagner (knee) didn't practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Wagner hurt his knee on the first defensive play of this past Sunday's game against the Lions and didn't return. Eventually, he was diagnosed with MCL and PCL sprains after an MRI, threatening his availability for a Week 18 visit to Arizona. According to Boyle, Wagner said Wednesday that his knee is receiving treatment and he'll play the waiting game to see if he'll be able to suit up Sunday. With no on-field work to speak of yet, Wagner may be trending in the wrong direction, but he at least has one more practice to prove to the Seahawks training staff that he can play through the injuries.
Wagner (knee) was held out of Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. After lasting just one play due to MCL and PCL sprains sustained Week 17 against the Lions, Wagner was believed to be trending toward an absence this Sunday in Arizona, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Wagner wouldn't commit to such a fate Wednesday, telling Boyle that he's receiving treatment on his knee and will see how the rest of the week plays out to see if he may be able to play this weekend. Wagner has missed just one game since the start of the 2016 campaign.
Wagner was diagnosed with sprains to the MCL and PCL in his knee Monday and shouldn't require surgery, but he's expected to be sidelined for Sunday's game at Arizona, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Wagner suffered the injury during Sunday's win over the Lions, though it was initially described as a sprained kneecap. Regardless, the 31-year-old is likely to be sidelined for the final game of the season, which would be his first absence since 2018 and only his second game missed since 2015. The Seahawks have already been eliminated from playoff contention, so he's likely seen the field for the final time this season. Assuming he's out Week 18, Wagner would finish the campaign with a career-high 170 tackles (93 solo) to go along with one sack, one interception and one forced fumble in 16 contests.
Wagner sprained his knee in Sunday's 51-29 win over the Lions and will get an MRI on the injury, per coach Pete Carroll, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Wagner was able to walk off under his own power and immediately tried to get back into the game, but Seattle's staff kept him off the field with the team up big. Carroll responded, "I don't know," when asked about Wagner's availability for next week's season finale against the Cardinals, but the results of the MRI should paint a clearer picture regarding the linebacker's chances of suiting up.
