Linebacker K.J. Wright and left guard James Carpenter will not play in Sunday’s game against the Jets at CenturyLink Field because of concussions they got last week.
That was the word from coach Pete Carroll after today’s practice, so Mike Morgan will start on the strong side for Wright and John Moffitt will replace Carpenter.
“We’re not going to get Carp back, we’re not going to get K.J. back,” Carroll said. “Both those guys need a little bit more time. So with the (bye) week coming up, we’ll take great care of them and get them in after the bye.”
Wright got his concussion on the first play of last week’s game against the Vikings, while Carpenter missed that game as well because of a concussion he got earlier in the week.
“It’s not about who’s stepping down, it’s who’s stepping up,” Carroll said.
