K.J. Wright injury: Seahawks linebacker breaks bone in foot, out 6 weeks.

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright has a broken bone in his foot, said Pete Carroll, and is expected to be out six weeks. That puts his potential return well into the playoffs. He'd have hope for returning for the Super Bowl, if Seattle is able make it that far, but obviously, this is not good news for the Seattle defense.

Wright is coming off of a huge game against the Saints, and was seen fuming on the sideline after coming off with the injury, and it appeared he was in tears of anger/frustration before heading to the locker room. Awful, awful feeling.

In terms of implications for Seattle's defense, backup Malcolm Smith is playing good football and thankfully provides quality depth behind starter K.J. Wright. The depth past Smith is where it gets shaky, though, so look for Seattle to potentially add a veteran in that weakside linebacker spot to bolster depth before the end of season and playoffs run.

Center Max Unger left the game and didn't return, and Pete Carroll called it a pectoral strain. Jeron Johnson pulled his hamstring.
