Thursday Practice Report: Richard Sherman and Jimmy Graham Return to Practice

A closer look at Thursday's practice report for the Seahawks and Buccaneers before the two teams meet in Week 12 at Tampa Bay.

The Seahawks finished a Thanksgiving practice with a number of players still sidelined due to injury, but a pair of important players who sat out Wednesday, tight end Jimmy Graham (knee) and cornerback Richard Sherman (ankle), were back on the field a day later, a pretty good indicator that Wednesday was more of a rest day than a sign of anything serious—Graham has been held out of Wednesday practices frequently this season.

Among those still not practicing are three defensive starters who Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said will likely not play this week—defensive end Michael Bennett (knee), cornerback DeShawn Shead (hamstring) and safety Earl Thomas (hamstring).

Center Justin Britt also remained sidelined for a second straight day despite making it through Sunday's game. His status, and that of other injured players, will be updated by Carroll following Friday's practice.

For the Buccaneers, cornerback Brent Grimes (quadriceps) was limited in practice after being held out a day earlier, while tight end Luke Stocker (ankle) went from limited participation Wednesday to full participation Thursday.
