Seahawks’ Unger Out Three to Four Weeks With High Ankle Sprain
Seattle's starting center Max Unger could possibly return to action before the end of the season.
At his Monday press conference, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll talked about Unger's injury and whether he might play again this year.
"Max hasn’t had one of these before, so it’s the first time through it and he’ll have to figure it out as we go," Carroll said when asked if Unger's injury was season-ending. "It’s a second degree sprain, so it’s legit and we have to take care of him."
A high ankle sprain typically takes four to six weeks to heal.
Carroll also said that with only second year center Patrick Lewis on the roster, the team could be looking for another player.
"We will see what we’re doing here in the next couple of days," he said. "We will let you know."
Carroll added that linebacker Bobby Wagner, who has been out the last five games, may see playing time Sunday against Arizona. Guard James Carpenter, out the last two games, could also return this week.
