G James Carpenter (concussion) still not cleared, Seahawks otherwise healthy

The Seahawks were back on the practice field after their bye week, and nearly everyone was back on the field as Seattle heads into its game in Miami as a pretty healthy team. Everyone was able to practice except for guard James Carpenter, who has missed the past two games with a concussion and has still not been cleared to return to action.

“James has a couple of tests he was doing this afternoon, then we’ll find out Wednesday if he’s cleared to go,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “… He’s had a lot of time to break, and we just want to make sure we’ve got everything squared away. We’ll see what happens.”

Carroll realizes it’s no small thing for his team to have so many healthy bodies available this late in the season.

“We’re very fortunate right now,” Carroll said. “We’re very fortunate to be this healthy at this point, and hopefully we’ll make the most of it.”

Among those back in action was linebacker KJ Wright, who missed Seattle’s last game with a concussion. Carroll also said that cornerback Walter Thurmond, who recently returned from the Physically Unable to Perform List, will likely see his first game action since breaking his leg last year.
