Head coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Wright (knee) may be ready to play in Week 3's game against the Cowboys, Liz Matthews of USA Today reports.
Wright has been recovering from knee surgery since the end of August, but Carroll seems optimistic that the linebacker will be back at practice this week after seeing him run last week. An official update on Wright's health should come once the Seahawks release their first injury report next week.
Wright underwent an arthroscopic procedure in the offseason expected to require multiple weeks of recovery, so it's no surprise that the 29-year-old isn't yet ready to return to the field. Expect rookie fourth-rounder Shaquem Griffen to start again against the Bears on Monday.
Wright underwent arthroscopic knee surgery two weeks ago and is progressing through recovery currently. The team hasn't gone so far as to rule him out, but it would be surprising to see him suited up in Chicago. Look for Shaquem Griffen to see another start if Wright is indeed held out.
Coach Pete Carroll hopes Wright (knee) will only be out for a couple weeks, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Despite saying Wright's arthroscopic procedure went well, Carroll essentially seems to be conceding that the linebacker won't be ready for Week 1 in Denver. The Seahawks likely will turn to rookie fourth-round pick Shaquem Griffin as the starter at weakside linebacker, but it isn't entirely clear if Griffin will occupy Wright's usual three-down role.
Wright (groin) returned to practice Tuesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Wright missed just a few days because of the groin issue, so the initial minor tag on the injury held true. The veteran outside linebacker should work back into the first-team defense and is expected to retain his starting role after posting 71 tackles during 2017.
