Wednesday Practice Report: Russell Wilson, Tyler Lockett Fully Participate; Frank Clark Sits Out

A closer look at Wednesday's practice report for the Seahawks and Falcons as the two teams ready for a Week 6 matchup at CenturyLink Field.

The Seahawks returned to practice at Virginia Mason Athletic Center following an off-day to prepare for their game against the Atlanta Falcons.

The first practice report of Week 6 is out and it contains nine names for the Seahawks as they ready for Sunday's game against the NFC South-leading Atlanta Falcons. 

Coming off of a 300-plus-yard, three-touchdown effort in a Week 4 win against the New York Jets, Russell Wilson (ankle/knee) was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. According to Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, the Seattle quarterback "continued to work the whole time" on his return from early-season sprains during the bye.

"He's getting there," Bevell said of Wilson after the club's "Competition Wednesday" practice at Virginia Mason Athletic Center. "Obviously two weeks that he's going to have here full without having to play, obviously that goes in the positive direction for him. He continued to work the whole time, so he looks good, he looks improved.

"I'm not going to put a percentage on where he's at, but he's getting better every day."

Tyler Lockett (knee), meanwhile, was also a full participant after the second-year wideout was limited in the receiving game and on returns during the Seahawks' past two games. Earlier Wednesday, Carroll said Lockett "feels the best he's felt."

"It just adds another huge piece for us," Bevell said of what a healthy Lockett would bring to Seattle's offense. "He's so explosive. You've seen the big impact plays that he's been able to have down the field. He's great if you just get the ball in his hands because he's a little jitterbug with making guys miss and then becoming an explosive player with it in his hands.

"He's still working and he's still coming along. Last week we were kind of just spot-playing him and letting him get as healthy as we could and making sure something didn't happen to him."

Also of note for the Seahawks, defensive tackle Jarran Reed (hip) worked out in limited fashion Wednesday but Carroll said the team anticipates he'll be able to contribute this weekend at CenturyLink Field. Defensive end Frank Clark (hamstring) was held out of Wednesday's session alongside running back Thomas Rawls (fibula) and defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson (thumb), who had surgery during the bye week. Tight ends Jimmy Graham (knee) and Nick Vannett (ankle) were full-go Wednesday, as was running back C.J. Prosise (wrist), who is going "one day at a time," according to Carroll. 

Of note for the Falcons, No. 1 wideout Julio Jones (knee) did not participate in practice on Wednesday and the team saw a trio of linebackers return to work in limited fashion.
