Carroll: Center Max Unger to miss 3-4 games with injuries, talks of ‘loaded’ rest of schedule
RENTON, Wash. — Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Monday that center Max Unger suffered a high ankle sprain and twisted a knee “a little bit, too” in Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs and would probably miss three to four games.
Carroll said, however, that linebacker Bobby Wagner and offensive lineman James Carpenter would both try to practice Wednesday and are possible for next Sunday’s important game against the NFC West Division-leading Arizona Cardinals, 9-1, at CenturyLink Field.
The Seahawks are 6-4 on the season.
Asked about the next six games, five of which are against division opponents (twice each against Arizona and San Francisco and once more against St. Louis), Carroll said, “We’re as loaded as you can get down the stretch” but that the team would focus on each opponent as they come.
The only non-division opponent in the last six games? Seattle at Philadelphia, 7-3, on Dec. 7.
