Video: Seahawks center Max Unger says he has “a good shot” to play this week

Seattle center Max Unger hopes what he calls a “tough year for the injuries” is ending.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll said during his press conference today that Unger is practicing and expected back for Saturday’s divisional playoff game against Carolina after having missed the last six games of the regular season due to knee and ankle injuries (a high ankle sprain the most serious of those injuries, which were suffered against Kansas City).

Unger met the media for the first time since the injury on his way out to practice and said he hopes to be able to play against the Panthers.

“Got a good shot to play this week,” he said. “Try to get out there.”

Unger has played in just six games this season, having suffered a foot injury against Washington on Oct. 6 that held him out of four games, and then the injuries against Kansas City.

Unger was able to practice during the team’s bye week last week and he said that “was huge” to get back into the swing of things.

Unger was also able to attend every meeting during his rehab time which he also said was vital. “Not too much rust,” he said. “So we’ll see.”

If Unger is able to play this week, then Seattle could have available its regular starting offensive line for the first time since the Oct. 6 game against the Redskins:

Here’s some video of Unger talking to the media prior to practice Tuesday:
