RENTON, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks will be without linebacker K.J Wright and guard James Carpenter against the New York Jets on Sunday.

Wright and Carpenter have yet to be cleared to return to practice after suffering concussions.

Wright sustained a concussion on the opening drive against the Minnesota Vikings last week. Carpenter had concussion symptoms surface late last week before being ruled out against the Vikings.

Mike Morgan will make his first career start in place of Wright. Morgan recorded three tackles and a tackle for a loss in Seattle's 30-20 win over Minnesota in relief of Wright. John Moffitt will start at left guard in place of Carpenter.

Defensive tackle Greg Scruggs will be a game-time decision with an oblique strain.
