CB Walter Thurmond, G John Moffitt return to practice. WR Doug Baldwin sits

The Seahawks’ opponent this week, Detroit, is about to kick off its Week 7 game, but the Seahawks are already off the practice field having begun preparation for Sunday’s game in Detroit.

Among those joining the team on the field for the first time in a while were cornerback Walter Thurmond, who has been out all season while recovering from a leg injury, and guard John Moffitt, who has missed four straight games with a knee injury.

Thurmond broke his fibula last season, and originally was expecting to be back for the start of this season, but he re-fractured his leg in March, which led to him opening the season on the Physically Unable to Perform List.

Players on the PUP list have a three-week window beginning after Week 6 to either be added to the active roster, placed on injured reserve or released, and Thurmond being back at practice is a pretty strong indication he’ll be added to the roster before that time is up. Whether that happens this week, however, remains to be seen, Pete Carroll said.

“It’s great to have him back,” Carroll said. “It’s a real positive for him. It’s been a long haul him being out. Hopefully he can hang, we’ll see what that means. We’ll just take it one week at a time and see where it goes, I don’t have any idea what we would do with that at this point for this weekend.”

Moffitt injured his knee in Seattle’s third game, and has been out ever sense, but was back in action Monday, though his status is also up in the air.

“He got out there, he practiced with us,” Carroll said. “That was great to see him out there. I don’t know how far along John will be until we get him through Wednesday’s practice, then we’ll have a better clue, but it’s great to just have him back.”

Receiver Doug Baldwin, who left Thursday’s game with an ankle injury, was held out Monday.

“I don’t know that yet,” Carroll said when asked if Baldwin will play Sunday. “We’ll have to wait and see.”
