Healed, more-rested Wilson and re-loaded Seahawks host Panthers

These last two weeks have been Russell Wilson’s first two since September without trainers waking him in the middle of the night for therapy on his injured legs. He’s running a lot like he did before the high-ankle sprain and sprained knee. That and the five starters Seattle is getting back from injuries make this a different Seahawks team hosting Carolina Sunday night compared to last weekend at Tampa Bay.

Michael Bennett is back, in case you haven’t heard (him)

The Seahawks’ outspoken, Pro Bowl defensive end actually wasn’t at his peak, quip-filled best before practicing fully on Wednesday, but he’s on track to start Sunday against Carolina. But then again, he’d been away for five games following knee surgery. “No,” Bennett says, “I didn’t vote for Trump.”

Richard Sherman: Karma getting Cam Newton this season

The Seahawks’ three-time All-Pro cornerback says the Carolina quarterback’s crumpling of a “12th Man” flag after beating Seattle in the playoffs last winter is coming back to bite him this season. “I guess karma gets you,” Sherman says. “Doesn’t look like you are going to be in the playoffs this year.” Plus, Earl Thomas and Justin Britt join Michael Bennett as full go in practice after returning from injuries.
