Seattle's leading tackler won't be returning to the game.
Many NFL fans aren't aware of the name K.J. Wright, but they might become more familiar with him as we are now on a concussion watch with the Seahawks linebacker and leading tackler. Wright has left Seattle's Week 9 game against the Vikings with a head injury and will not return.
The 2011 fourth round pick took over for an ineffective Aaron Curry early last season at outside linebacker and has quickly emerged as one of the best players on a talented defense. Wright came into the game leading Seattle with 63 tackles and added in three pass deflections and a forced fumble.
The Hawks are going to have an even tougher time stopping Adrian Peterson, who already has 144 rushing yards midway through the second quarter. Second-year undrafted free agent Mike Morgan has come in to replace Wright for the remainder of the game.
He has two tackles this season.
