Thursday Practice Report: D.J. Fluker, Tedric Thompson Return To Practice For Seahawks

Starting guard D.J. Fluker and free safety Tedric Thompson returned to practice on Thursday for the Seahawks after sitting out with injuries to open the week.


The Seahawks saw two starters return to practice on Thursday at Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center, where guard D.J. Fluker (ankle) and free safety Tedric Thompson (hamstring) were limited participants as Seattle continued preparation for Sunday's home matchup with the New Orleans Saints.

Also a positive change for the Week 3 matchup is that two Seahawks players who were limited by injuries during Wednesday’s practice were upgraded to full participants on Thursday. That list included guard Mike Iupati (foot) and wide receiver David Moore (shoulder).

Playing in all 16 regular-season games in 2018, Moore "was a big-time player for us last year," according to quarterback Russell Wilson as spoken in Thursday’s post-practice press conference. "We're excited about getting him back on the field. I know he's fired up about that. I think he brings speed. I think he brings physicality to the game. I think he's got great hands. It's hard to tackle him. He's a guy that's very, very hard to tackle and he runs all the right routes. We're looking forward to that."

Along with Iupati and Moore, defensive end Ziggy Ansah (shoulder) saw full participation in practice on Thursday for the second day in a row.
