Friday Seahawks injury report—Rice, Bryant and Hill all questionable; Trufant doubtful

For the third straight day, the Seahawks practiced without defensive starters Leroy Hill (ankle) and Red Bryant (foot), but both do have a chance to play according to Pete Carroll. Both are listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report, and Carroll said they will wait until Sunday to make a decision.

Also sitting out Friday was cornerback Marcus Trufant, who injured his hamstring in Thursday’s practice. Trufant is listed as doubtful. With Trufant out, look for Walter Thurmond to make his season debut as Seattle’s nickel cornerback.

Receiver Sidney Rice is also questionable after experiencing calf tightness in Friday’s practice.

The Bears, meanwhile, are banged up, but expect most of their injured players to make it Sunday aside from receiver/return man Devin Hester, who has been ruled out with a concussion and guard Chris Spencer, who has been ruled out with a knee injury.
