Seahawks’ K.J. Wright ‘has a chance’ to play against 49ers


Two familiar NFC West rivals are set two square in the NFC Championship game and the Seahawks might be getting linebacker K.J. Wright back in the line up. Wright has been out with a broken bone in his right foot since December 8th.

“KJ Wright has a chance, yeah,” Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said, via Pro Football Talk. “We’re going to take a look at him on Wednesday. He ran well today and over the weekend. So today, he ran and he’ll get a rest day tomorrow and then he’ll come back out Wednesday and we’ll see where he is. He has a chance. We’re excited about that for him.”

Wright was playing well and started 13 games for Seattle before being inured. Wright has recorded 80 tackles with 1.5 sacks. He was key in limiting New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham and could be tasked with defending 49ers tight end Vernon Davis.
