Friday Practice Report: Seahawks Defensive End Michael Bennett, Punter Jon Ryan Expected To Play vs Cardinals

Michael Bennett and Jon Ryan, each of whom left the Seahawks' last game to injury, practiced in full on Friday and are expected to play this weekend against the Cardinals.

The Seahawks distributed their gameday status designation report to the NFL on Friday, a day before the team's Week 16 game against the Arizona Cardinals, and the only player listed as out for Seattle's Christmas Eve game at CenturyLink Field is running back C.J. Prosise (shoulder), indicating defensive end Michael Bennett (neck) and punter Jon Ryan (concussion) will be available to play after leaving last Thursday night's game to injury.

The Seahawks listed Bennett and Ryan as full participants at Friday's practice, and when head coach Pete Carroll met with the media following Thursday's workout he shared encouraging updates that implied both players are on track to play this weekend.

Linebacker Brock Coyle (foot), meanwhile, practiced in full for the third straight day this week, a strong sign that he'll be ready to go after missing the past four games.

Looking at the Seahawks' opponent, the Cardinals placed Tyrann Mathieu on injured reserve Friday, meaning the Pro Bowl defensive back won't be on the field this Saturday in Seattle. Arizona will also be without cornerback Marcus Cooper (back/calf) and offensive lineman D.J. Humphries (concussion), while cornerback Brandon Williams (back) and receiver John Brown (illness) are questionable.

Here's a complete look at the gameday status designations for the Seahawks and Cardinals:
