Seahawks LB K.J. Wright needed arthroscopic knee surgery after suffering an unspecified injury in Friday's game against the Vikings. HC Pete Carroll told reporters Monday that he's not sure if Wright will be ready for Week 1. His absence would likely mean a start for rookie Shaquem Griffin.
Seahawks LB K.J. Wright left the team for about a week for what HC Pete Carroll deemed a knee "process" -- not a surgery -- according to The News-Tribune. Wright returned to practice Tuesday and said the unspecified treatment was for an issue that flared up in June and that he had been playing through. Wright said and the team "wanted to be smart, so I could be 100 percent for the season." Wright opened training camp on time and played in the 1st preseason game before leaving for the "process." Barring any setbacks, he appears on track for a normal start to the year.
