Thursday Practice Report: Rashaad Penny, Neiko Thorpe Return For Seahawks

Running back Rashaad Penny (hamstring) and cornerback Neiko Thorpe (hamstring) were limited participants for the Seahawks on Thursday.


As Pete Carroll said would be the case earlier this week, Thursday's workout at Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center saw the return of running back Rashaad Penny (hamstring), who was limited after sitting out Wednesday and missing this past weekend's game against the New Orleans Saints. Also returning to practice in limited fashion Thursday was cornerback and special teams captain Neiko Thorpe (hamstring), who was injured in the regular-season opener and sidelined for the Seahawks' past two games. Thursday marks Thorpe's first practice since his Week 1 setback.

Left tackle Duane Brown (biceps), meanwhile, was held out for the second straight practice as he continues to nurse an injury sustained in Week 3 at CenturyLink Field. On Wednesday, Carroll said of Brown: "He's a little sore, but it's not a serious injury at this point. It's not the kind of damage or anything that we have to be concerned about, we've just got to get him ready for the game and we'll see how he does."

A pair of players who were limited at Wednesday's practice were downgraded to non-participants Thursday, with guard Ethan Pocic (mid back) and defensive end Ziggy Ansah (back) sitting out. Defensive end Quinton Jefferson (hip) also sat out for the second consecutive day.

Joining Penny and Thorpe on the list of limited participants for Seattle were defensive tackle Poona Ford (calf), cornerback Tre Flowers (ankle), and running back Travis Homer (quadriceps), each of whom were limited Wednesday as well. Safety Tedric Thompson (hamstring), who like Thorpe has been held from game action since Week 1, was a full participant Thursday, Thompson's second full practice this week.
