Carroll: Wright will have surgery, Unger’s status still unknown

Coach Pete Carroll talked with “Brock and Danny” on 710 ESPN Seattle this morning but offered no new updates on center Max Unger. Unger left Sunday’s 19-17 loss to San Francisco with a chest injury.

“We know what it is,” Carroll said on the radio. “We just have to see how he responds during the week. It’s something that one of our guys has had before and played with, and we’ll find out how it is particularly for him.”

Backup center Lemuel Jeanpierre filled in for Unger, as he did earlier in the season when Unger missed time.

Carroll said linebacker K.J. Wright, who left the game with a broken right foot, will have surgery and have a screw put in his foot. He is expected to be out four to six weeks, with Carroll emphasizing that it is a minimum of four weeks. After the game, Wright said in the locker room that he expected to play again this season.

Carroll once again highlighted penalties as the biggest reason Seattle lost. He said the Seahawks had nine drives in the game, and three of them were affected by major penalties that killed drives.

“And they were good enough not to allow us to overcome the penalties,” Carroll said.
