SEATTLE – Starting outside linebacker K.J. Wright is out for the remainder of the game for the Seattle Seahawks after suffering a concussion early in the first quarter against Minnesota.
Wright was taken to the locker room after Minnesota scored on its opening drive on Sunday. Early in the second quarter, the Seahawks said he would not return.
Wright is a key part of Seattle's defense because of his versatility to play both inside and outside linebacker positions. He was replaced by second-year linebacker Mike Morgan.
