Wednesday Practice Report: Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson A Full Participant

A closer look at Wednesday's practice report for the Seahawks and Rams heading into the teams' Week 2 matchup in Los Angeles.

Russell Wilson went through the team's walk thru and was a full participant in practice on Wednesday, a workout that comes three days after the Seahawks quarterback sprained his ankle in the third quarter of Seattle's Week 1 win over the Miami Dolphins.

Earlier this week, Pete Carroll said Wilson is "planning on playing" against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2, and on Wednesday, the Seahawks head coach noted that Wilson is "excited to prove that he can get back," with Wednesday's session extending Wilson's streak of never missing a practice to injury through his four-plus seasons in the NFL.

"His attitude is like as charged up as you can imagine," Carroll said before practice at Virginia Mason Athletic Center. "As always, but he's excited to prove that he can get back and all that. He's half-crazy about proving it. So it's good, his attitude's great." 

Wilson didn't miss a snap against Miami, but his mobility was limited as he returned to work and led the Seahawks on a game-winning touchdown drive

"The really great performers find a way," Carroll said. "They don't have to be 100 percent all the time to be able to operate at a really high level, so that's part of what's going on."

Even with Wilson's injury, offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell added that the team plans to approach Sunday's meeting with the Rams "just like you do any other game."

"Right now we're expecting him to be full-go," Bevell said of Wilson. "I don't think he has any different thoughts than that. He's amazing in his preparation, he's probably not even sleeping with all the rehab that he's doing. I expect him to be ready to go."

Rookie running back C.J. Prosise, who suffered a wrist injury in the regular-season opener, practiced in full on Wednesday, as did tight end Jimmy Graham, who saw limited snaps against Miami after working his way back from last year's season-ending knee injury.

"It was the first time that he was able to be in the game," Bevell said of Graham, who didn't play in preseason. "That was really his first preseason game, so it was great to even get him a ball. He had a big catch for us there on that last drive to win the game and he'll continue to be a part of us and obviously his role will continue to increase."

Rookie tight end Nick Vannett (ankle) was held out Wednesday, as was rookie offensive lineman Germain Ifedi as he continues to recover from an ankle injury that kept him out against the Dolphins.

"He's still hobbling a little bit, but he's making progress," Carroll said of Ifedi. "It's going to be a challenge for him to make it back this week. I don't think he's canceling it out yet, so we'll see what happens."

The Rams, who are operating on a short week after playing their season-opener on Monday night, held five players out of practice on Wednesday, including starting running back Todd Gurley, who was given the day off to rest.
