Wednesday Practice Report: Thomas Rawls Fully Participates; Richard Sherman, K.J. Wright Held Out

A closer look at Wednesday's practice report for the Seahawks and 49ers ahead of their Week 2 meeting at Seattle's CenturyLink Field.

The Seahawks were back on the practice field Wednesday preparing for their Week 2 game against the San Francisco 49ers at CenturyLink Field, and while running back Thomas Rawls (ankle) was a full participant to start the week, three defensive starters were sidelined. 

Strongside linebacker Terence Garvin (shoulder), cornerback Richard Sherman (hamstring), and weakside linebacker K.J. Wright (ankle) were all held out Wednesday. Pete Carroll spoke with the media before Wednesday's practice, so any updates from the Seattle head coach on the trio's status will have to wait until Friday, but those names will be a few to keep an eye on as practice reports are released throughout the week.

Rawls, who practiced in full all of last week, was held out of this past Sunday's regular season opener against the Green Bay Packers. But Carroll said he thinks Rawls will be available when the Seahawks line up against San Francisco this weekend.

"He's got to make it through every day at practice, we haven't practiced yet, so we'll do it one day at a time," Carroll said of Rawls prior to Wednesday's on-field session. "But he looks to be prepared to go and that's what we're counting on until we can't."

Cornerback Shaquill Griffin (concussion) and linebacker Michael Wilhoite (calf), meanwhile, were limited Wednesday. It's an encouraging sign for the former 49er Wilhoite, who did not practice all of last week.

"He's looking to be back, counting on him being back," Carroll said of Wilhoite. "That was the thought going in by holding him back one more week last week. But he's got to go day to day and show us that he's OK."

Additionally, backup safety Delano Hill (shoulder), who was inactive at Lambeau Field after working in limited fashion all last week, returned to full participation on Wednesday.

For the 49ers, San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that the team is not expecting rookie linebacker Reuben Foster (ankle) to suit up Sunday against the Seahawks. The former Alabama standout was injured in the 49ers' season opener and did not practice on Wednesday.
