Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner has suffered a knee injury. Wagner has a sprained MCL and PCL, which will keep him out of Week 18’s matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. He should be healthy going into the 2022 season, however.
The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the news via Twitter on Monday afternoon.
#Seahawks Pro Bowl LB Bobby Wagner suffered sprains to the MCL and PCL in his knee on Sunday, source said. Minor injuries that should heal on their own. Wagner won’t play in Week 18, but no issues going forward.

The Seahawks have been eliminated from playoff contention and clinched their first losing season since quarterback Russell Wilson arrived. Wagner was among Seattle’s lone standouts on a highly disappointing defense.
Wagner is an eight-time Pro Bowl selection, six-time and Super Bowl champion. His latest Pro Bowl selection came this season, which will need to be vacated and substituted following the injury. In 16 games, Wagner has had one sack, one interception and 170 combined tackles, including 93 solo tackles.
The Seahawks play their first-ever Week 18 game on Sunday in Arizona.
