Wednesday practice report: Trufant, Wilson out

Seahawks starting cornerbacks Marcus Trufant and Josh Wilson both did not participate in practice today and are listed as having concussions in the team's injury report.

It appears both are sitting out just as a precaution, and should be back at practice at some point this week. Both were out on the field today.

DT Craig Terrill (shoulder) also did not participate in practice.

Running back Julius Jones (bruised long) is listed as out, but was out at practice this afternoon.

Center Chris Spencer (thumb) was a full participant in practice.

For Minnesota, DT Fred Evans did not participate in practice.

WR Bernard Berrian, CB Benny Sapp, FB Naufahu Tahi (ankle), CB Antoine Winfield (foot), QB Brett Favre (groin/hip) were limited participant in practice.

LB E.J. Henderson was a full participant in practice.

Count Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson among the Vikings happy that former Seahawks offensive guard Steve Hutchinson is part of their team.

“I’m doing a dance right now because we got him and y’all don’t,” Peterson said when asked about Hutchinson. “He’s the ring leader of the offensive line. It’s still funny to me how y’all let this guy go. But he’s a leader. He gets the job done. And he’s a beast. That’s the way I explain how he is on the field.”

Seattle wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh talked about his decision to sign with Seattle over Minnesota in free agency during the offseason. Houshmandzadeh said Minnesota made it tough because he felt comfortable there and like the owner and the offensive coaching staff. Houshmandzadeh said the money was about the same between Seattle, Minnesota and Cincinnati, but that he ultimately picked Seattle because he felt most comfortable there and liked the Seahawks quarterback situation better at the time.

But with Brett Favre with the Vikings, does he feel differently?

“Had he been there I don’t know what would have happened,” he said. “He wasn’t there, so I felt I had to do what was best for me. And if you look at both teams, yeah I knew Minnesota was going to be good, but I thought we were going to be really good, too.

“So hindsight is better than foresight, you know? And like I say, nine games into it, it doesn’t look like I made a great decision, but it’s too early.”
