Wagner says he'll play Sunday | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner said he'll be ready to play Sunday against the Cowboys. Wagner missed Monday night's loss in Chicago with a groin injury despite playing every defensive snap in Week 1. We'll obviously watch to confirm that he'll be good to go, but IDP owners should expect to have the stud LB back in fantasy football lineups for Week 3.

Recent Shark Bites

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll told reporters after Sunday's win over the Panthers that MLB Bobby Wagner suffered an ankle sprain late in the game. We'll see whether that threatens Wagner's availability for Week 16. S Quandre Diggs also sprained an ankle in the game. He's not much of an IDP factor for most leagues.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner had platelet-rich plasma therapy on a knee over the weekend, according to the Tacoma News Tribune, with a source describing the situation as "nothing major." HC Pete Carroll also downplayed the procedure, which several Seattle players have had in recent seasons. "He's done it a couple times before, and it's something that has been successful for him," Carroll said. "We felt like this was the time to do it." Carroll added that Wagner will likely see some preseason action at some point and might take part in the team's 2nd exhibition. The Seahawks will open their preseason Thursday against the Broncos. We're not concerned about Wagner's IDP outlook for the regular season.

The Seahawks have ruled MLB Bobby Wagner out for Monday night's game at Chicago. He missed practice all week with a groin injury. Weak-side LB K.J. Wright (ankle) will also miss his 2nd straight game. That leaves a potential tackle bonanza for rookie LB Shaquem Griffin. It also creates an attractive rushing setup for Bears RB Jordan Howard.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Wagner has been dealing with the issue for weeks but returned to 100% playing time for last Sunday's win over the Cowboys. We'd bet on his playing time being just fine -- barring some re-injury.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner (hamstring) is active for today's game against the 49ers, as expected. Use him as you normally would in IDP lineups.
