Thursday Practice Report: Four Starters Return For Seahawks

The Seahawks welcomed Doug Baldwin, Jimmy Graham, Luke Joeckel and Richard Sherman back to the practice field on Thursday.

Four Seahawks starters were back on the practice field Thursday after not participating in Wednesday's practice, with receiver Doug Baldwin (groin), tight end Jimmy Graham (ankle), left guard Luke Joeckel (knee), and cornerback Richard Sherman (groin) all fully participating ahead of this Sunday's road game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Four other Seahawks were sidelined for the second day in a row, including running back C.J. Prosise (ankle), cornerback Jeremy Lane (groin), safety Earl Thomas (knee), and defensive end Cliff Avril (neck), who Pete Carroll has already said will not play this weekend. Based on what the Seattle head coach said yesterday, the status of Prosise and Lane likely won't be known until the end of the week, and when it comes to Thomas, it's worth noting he also missed the first two days of practice last week but was able to go on gameday.

Defensive end Quinton Jefferson (hand) was downgraded from limited Wednesday to the sideline on Thursday, while fellow defensive end Michael Bennett (not injury related) received the day off to rest. Rees Odhiambo (chest), who was hospitalized following this past Sunday's victory over the Indianapolis Colts because he had difficulty breathing, did not participate Thursday after working in full on Wednesday, but assistant head coach/offensive line coach Tom Cable said it looks as though the left tackle will be ready for this week's game against the Rams.

"I think a lot of guys in this league do that, typically in games you get nicked or you get whacked like he did and you've got to work through it if you can," Cable said of Odhiambo playing through a bruised sternum last weekend. "He was able to do that, so you've got to take your hat off to him. It's certainly a level of toughness and all that and we're trying to take care of him this week, get him ready to go for Sunday."
