Wright made 31 tackles, four pass breakups and an 1 interception in six games this season.
Wright is a strong run-stopper for the Seahawks, and he showed his veteran experience with a timely interception in the fourth quarter of the wild-card playoff game versus the Cowboys. This was the first season that Wright was unable to play 13 or more games, as he was sidelined 11 contests with a knee injury. Wright will be an unrestricted free agent in March, and the Seahawks will want to keep his veteran presence around at the right price in case Shaquem Griffin is unable to take the reins yet. That price could be steep, however, as he posted four straight 100-tackle seasons between 2014 and 2017.
Wright was limited in practice on Wednesday as he continues to work his way back from a knee issue. He returned from a five-game absence in Week 16, recording two tackles and a pass defensed across 43 defensive snaps. Barring a major setback, the veteran should be good for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Wright (knee) is slated to play limited snaps Sunday against the Chiefs, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
It's no surprise that Wright will be eased into action after sitting out each of the Seahawks' last five games. Expect Wright to play a rotational role versus the Chiefs before taking back a full-time role once the postseason gets underway.
Wright (knee) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
Wright has missed the last five games due to a lingering knee injury, but is on track to suit up Week 16. The 29-year-old's presence will be a notable boon for Seattle's defense, as the unit attempts to contain Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs on primetime.
Wright was a limited practice last week before missing his fifth straight game with the knee issue. The 29-year-old will likely have to practice with no limitations by Friday if he is to avoid an injury designation.
