Bobby Wagner is hurt, but Max Unger is back


The injuries are continuing to pile up for the Seahawks.

Middle linebacker Bobby Wagner was seen on crutches and a protective boot to immobilize the sprained ankle he suffered on Sunday against the Colts, according to Terry Blount at ESPN.com.

Blount noted that head coach Pete Carroll believes Wagner will be a game-day decision:

“Bobby will see if he can make it back by game day,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday. “But it will go all the way to Sunday.”

Wagner is second on the team with 34 total tackles. If he can’t play on Sunday, K.J. Wright would move from the weak-side to the middle linebacker position. Malcolm Smith would replace Wright and Bruce Irvin would replace Smith on the strong side, according to Clare Farnsworth at Seahawks.com.

There was also good news that came out of Wednesday’s practice for the Hawks.

Pro Bowl center Max Unger was a full participant in practice and will play on Sunday against the Titans after missing the last two games with a triceps injury.

His return will boost an offensive line that was without four starters last week against the Colts.

Tight end Zach Miller, still nursing a sore hamstring, did not practice on Wednesday but will be a game-day decision, according to Blount.
