Wednesday Practice Report: Three Players Limited For Seahawks

A closer look at Wednesday's practice report for the Seahawks and Falcons as the two teams ready for a Divisional Round playoff matchup in Atlanta.

The Seahawks held Wednesday practice at Virginia Mason Athletic Center as the team prepares to take on the Atlanta Falcons in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

C.J. Prosise (shoulder), the Seahawks' rookie running back who has missed the team's past seven games with a fractured scapula, practiced in limited fashion on Wednesday for the Seahawks, who are readying for their Divisional Round playoff game against the Falcons this Saturday in Atlanta. 

Seattle was not required to release a practice report yesterday, but head coach Pete Carroll said Prosise went through the team’s walk thru workout on Tuesday and was in line to practice, which would signal two straight days of activity for the team's third-round pick out of Notre Dame. Carroll and the coaching staff has said Prosise's status for this weekend's game won't be determined until late this week, but more information should become available Thursday, when Carroll is scheduled to meet with the media before the team flies out to Georgia.

Joining Prosise as a limited participant at practice on Wednesday was defensive tackle Tony McDaniel (concussion), who missed the team's Wild Card win over the Detroit Lions after suffering a setback in the regular-season finale, and safety Jeron Johnson (knee). Receiver Paul Richardson (foot) practiced in full, while tight end Jimmy Graham (not injury related) and running back Thomas Rawls (not injury related) received Wednesday off.

Not listed on Wednesday's practice report for Seattle was Marcel Reece, whose status appeared to be in question after he sustained a foot injury against the Lions last weekend. Carroll, though, said the veteran fullback “bounced back quickly” and is “in good shape” this week.

The Falcons, meanwhile, look to be near full health after enjoying a first-round playoff bye. Every player on their 53-man roster fully participated in Wednesday's workout, including cornerback Robert Alford (knee), linebacker Vic Beasley (shoulder), receiver Taylor Gabriel (foot), tight end Austin Hooper (knee), and receiver Julio Jones (toe).
