There were a couple of positives on Thursday’s injury report for the Seahawks, most notably Bobby Wagner going from limited in Wednesday’s practice to full participation a day later, a good indicator that he is on track to return from a five-game absence this week.
Also encouraging for the Seahawks is that there were no surprise additions to the report on Thursday, something that has been a regular occurrence for several weeks with players like Luke Willson and Kam Chancellor missing games after not being on the report Wednesday.
Marshawn Lynch did sit out for a second straight day, but he also missed both Wednesday and Thursday last week and still rushed for 124 yards against the Chiefs, so until Pete Carroll says otherwise, it’s safe to assume he’ll play.
