RENTON, Wash. (AP) Seattle Seahawks center Max Unger will miss his third straight game on Sunday with a foot injury, while kick and punt returner Bryan Walters will be out with a concussion.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll said the team hopes Unger will be able to return to practice next week. He was hurt during Seattle's Week 5 win over Washington.

Walters suffered a concussion during practice this week and was not cleared. Wide receivers Doug Baldwin and Paul Richardson will handle the duties on kick and punt returns with Walters sidelined.

Also out for Seattle is cornerback Byron Maxwell, who suffered a strained calf against Dallas two weeks ago. But Tharold Simon recovered quickly from an ankle injury suffered last week against St. Louis and is expected to make his second NFL start with Maxwell out.

Seattle also expects tight end Luke Willson to be able to play after missing last week with a groin injury.

Carroll said fullback Derrick Coleman underwent surgery after suffering a broken foot during pregame warmups last Sunday in St. Louis. Carroll said Coleman would be out at least six weeks, but there's been no decision yet on whether to place him on injured reserve.

Also without a firm timeline is linebacker Bobby Wagner, who suffered a toe injury against Dallas. Wagner and tight end Zach Miller (ankle) were traveling with the team to Carolina to see a specialist.
