The Seattle Seahawks will march into January with one of their better defensive players watching from afar.
"We'll find out more after (the surgery)," Carroll said, per ESPN.com's Terry Blount. "It's usually six weeks for broken bones, but he's a good healer."
It's a tangible loss for the Seahawks. Wright has graded out as this season's 10th-best 4-3 outside linebacker, per Pro Football Focus, and he shines in pass coverage. Still, Seattle has done an outstanding job under Carroll with a "next-man-up" approach to injuries. We've seen that in the secondary, and we don't expect the NFC's best team to skip a beat.
