Seattle coach Pete Carroll said outside linebacker K.J. Wright will have surgery Tuesday to repair a fracture in his foot and will be out four to six weeks.
Carroll would not speculate how long the injury could take.
“We’ll find out more after [the surgery],” Carroll said. “It’s usually six weeks for broken bones, but he’s a good healer.”
For now, it appears the Seahawks will not place Wright on injured reserve, which would end his season. Malcolm Smith, in his third season from USC, will step in a start for Wright.
