Friday Practice Report: Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson "Feeling The Best I've Felt Since Week One"

A closer look at Friday's practice report for the Seahawks and Bills before the two teams meet on Monday Night Football at CenturyLink Field.

The Seahawks' second practice report of Week 9 contains a couple notable changes from the first, with linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis (ankle), who's missed the team's past two games, going from a non-participant on Thursday to a full participant on Friday, and tight end Jimmy Graham (knee) going from a full participant on Thursday to a limited participant on Friday.

The rest of Seattle's most-recent report looks as it did on Thursday, as running back Thomas Rawls (fibula), defensive end Michael Bennett (knee), tight end Luke Willson (knee), strong safety Kam Chancellor (groin), and cornerback DeAndre Elliott (hamstring) sat out, while left tackle Bradley Sowell (knee) was limited and defensive end Cliff Avril (groin), defensive tackle Tony McDaniel (ankle), and quarterback Russell Wilson (knee/pectoral) practiced in full. 

Wilson, who has also played through an ankle sprain he suffered in the season-opener, said before Friday's workout that this is the best he's felt since the beginning of the year.

"I'm feeling great," Wilson told reporters at his Friday press conference. "I'm feeling the best I've felt since week one, so that's a good thing."

While Wilson has yet to miss a practice or game this season, he admitted playing through multiple injuries hasn't allowed him "to run as fast as I normally can" but added that he feels as though he is "definitely getting there."

"I can definitely make the play when I need to," Wilson said. "That's the good thing, I've been able to push it, able to run a bunch late in the past week or so. I was swimming a bunch before, just trying to keep the conditioning up and all that. It feels great and I want to make sure that I'll be ready to go and ready to roll."

For the Bills, starting running back LeSean McCoy (hamstring) was limited for a second day in a row. Buffalo head coach Rex Ryan said he feels McCoy is on track to be ready to play against Seattle after missing last week's game against the New England Patriots. Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander (hamstring), who leads the NFL with 9.0 sacks, was upgraded to a limited participant on Friday after sitting out on Thursday. Running back Reggie Bush, defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, offensive tackle Cordy Glenn, and linebacker Lerentee McCray, meanwhile, were also upgraded to limited Friday after missing Thursday's workout.

The Seahawks wrap up their practice week with one final workout on Saturday, when Seattle and Buffalo must submit gameday status designations (out, doubtful, questionable) for injured players. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll is also scheduled to meet with the media on Saturday and should provide updates on several of Seattle's notable injury situations.
