Seattle Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright did not return to Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings after suffering a concussion early in the first quarter.

Wright was replaced by Mike Morgan, but it's clear the backup wasn't ready for a full-time job as the team allowed 243 rushing yards to the Vikings. Wright was the team's leading tackler entering the game, and he's been a huge asset against the run in his second year in the league.

It's possible that the Seahawks may play it safe with Wright with the team only having one more game against the New York Jets before their Week 11 bye. Regardless, Wright will surely undergo the league's concussions tests later this week so he should be considered highly questionable as he waits for clearance.

In other injury news, center Max Unger left Sunday's game briefly after dislocating his finger "a couple of times" but he later returned, according to John Boyle of the Everett Herald.
