Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll indicated after today’s practice that his team will be healthy for the most part as they travel to Chicago this afternoon.
Cornerback Richard Sherman (knee), defensive end Raheem Brock (calf) and offensive linemen Robert Gallery (hip) and Jarriel King (hamstring) all returned to practice today, were full participants and are probable.
Along with those players, cornerback Kennard Cox (hamstring), linebacker Leroy Hill (neck), quarterback Tarvaris Jackson (pectoral), receiver Doug Baldwin (ankle) and linebacker David Hawthorne (knee) are probable.
Carroll said that King is the only player who will be listed as questionable on the team’s injury report.
Never miss a local story.
Gallery had missed the first two days of practice this week, but appeared to be moving well during Seattle’s 90-minute walk-through and should plays this weekend.
Carroll also talked about the fact that his team is travelling to the Windy City to take on the Bears for the third time in a little over a month.
“It’s doesn’t help us any more than it helps them – that’s all equal,” Carroll said. “But we are familiar with where we’re going and the trip and all that kind of stuff. And we’ve had a great day there, and we’ve had a day we’d like to forget, so we know the spectrum that we’re up against.
“It’s almost like a division matchup in that regard with our third time in two years. So we’ll feel okay about it, and they won’t mind us going there again. We’d like to invite them to come out here some time, too.”
For Chicago, quarterback Jay Cutler (right thumb), running back Matt Forte (knee) and receiver Sam Hurd (non injury related) all did not practice and are out.
Defensive tackle Henry Melton (shin) and receiver Devin Hester (ankle) both did not practice and are listed as questionable.
Cornerback Charles Tillman (knee), offensive lineman Edwin Williams (calf) and safety Major Wright (shoulder) all fully participated in practice and are listed as probable
