Seahawks Linebacker K.J. Wright is being rehabilitated after an out-of-season operation, General Manager John Schneider said on Thursday on Sports Radio KJR.
“In the end, he had to have an operation on his shoulder. Not a serious operation, ”said Schneider.
Schneider did not immediately answer a Wright job security question after the Seahawks called in Jordyn Brooks with the 27th overall decision.
The 30-year-old Wright has been playing on the Weakside since 2013. He could switch to the strong side in 2020, Schneider allowed.
“K.J. just had an operation. He has just been rehabilitated from his operation, ”said Schneider. “I’m not sure when he’ll be back. Hopefully he’ll make it back on time and we’ll see how to do it. It’s just a strange off-season. I mean for everyone, but especially for people who are going to have an operation outside of the season. KJ, hopefully his name will be on the wall someday. He’s a great person and a great player, so we did the deal with him last year. “
The 30-year-old Wright has started 124 games in his nine seasons.
