K.J. Wright’s surgically repaired foot was sore Monday after the NFC title game. But, he’s feeling better now.
After playing at less than 100 percent against San Francisco, Wright said he expects to be at full strength for the Super Bowl.
Wright also didn’t have his full cardio after missing five weeks because of the foot surgery.
“I was just glad to be out there,” Wright said. “I played a limited amount of plays, which was probably the right amount of plays. I believe over the next two weeks, my foot should be 100 percent and I should be full go next Sunday.”
The Seahawks used Wright at strongside linebacker against San Francisco in order to limit how much running he had to do on his bad foot. Wright said he’ll be back at weakside this week and for the Super Bowl.
“I’ll be back at my old spot, doing what I normally do, covering tight ends and all that good stuff,” Wright said.
He’ll also be part of how the Seahawks try to get to Peyton Manning. Manning has been sacked 18 times in 18 games this season. He’s been basically untouched in the playoffs.
“It’s real tough,” Wright said. “We’ve got our hands full as far as timing our blitzes and trying to get to him to rattle him. We’ve got a good plan for him, but it’s going to be tough.”
