Head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that Wagner (pectoral) will suit up for Thursday's game at San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

Wagner wasn't available for Sunday's loss to the Panthers, as he tended to a pectoral strain, but he logged full practices both Tuesday and Wednesday, blazing a trail for his return. On the season, he ranks second on the Seahawks in tackles with 41, which he's supplemented with one defensive touchdown, one fumble recovery, and half a sack.

Wagner (pectoral) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice.

Wagner (pectoral) is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Panthers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

If Wagner indeed sits out, a huge hole would have to be filled at middle linebacker. None of the replacements are especially intriguing for IDP purposes, though Mike Morgan and Kevin Pierre-Louis (hamstring) are in line for an increase in snaps.

Wagner (pectoral) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

According to Brady Henderson of 710 ESPN Seattle, head coach Pete Carroll said multiple times that Wagner will be a game-time decision. If Seattle's defensive signal-caller can't play, it's unclear whether Brock Coyle (knee), Kevin Pierre-Louis (hamstring) or Mike Morgan would get the start. The Seahawks might just use a rotation, so Wagner's IDP owners should look to another team for a replacement.

Wagner (pectoral) didn't practice Thursday, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Emerging from Sunday's game in Cincinnati with a strained pectoral, Wagner has been unable to practice this week. With a cloud hanging over his availability, the Seahawks may be forced to go with a committee approach at middle linebacker Sunday against the Panthers, as reserves Mike Morgan, Brock Coyle (knee), and Kevin Pierre-Louis (hamstring) have combined for 11 defensive snaps in 2015.

Wagner and the Seahawks have opened talks regarding a long-term contract extension, NFL.com reports.

Wagner is currently entering the final year of his rookie contract, which is slated to pay him less than $1 million this season. However, coming off a Super Bowl and a first-team All-Pro selection the past two years, Wagner's value has proven to far exceed his current contract. A second-round pick in 2012, Wagner is arguably the best linebacker on the NFL's best defense, making him a vital component that the Seahawks will hope to keep around long-term.

Wagner (toe) is active for Sunday's contest against the Cardinals.

Wagner is making his first appearance since Week 6, when he was diagnosed with turf toe. He'll look to improve Seattle's run defense, while attempting to sustain the 10 tackle per game pace set prior to the injury.

Wagner (toe) is probable for Sunday's game against Arizona.

Wagner logged full practices Thursday and Friday, locking him back into the starting lineup and perhaps even a three-down role right away as the Seahawks head into this crucial divisional matchup. Wagner is an elite linebacker by any standard and should be owned in all IDP leagues that use linebackers. He had 50 tackles in his first five games this year before his toe injury took him down. Wagner's return could push Malcolm Smith to the periphery.
