Marshawn Lynch just sat out his second consecutive day of practice, this time with a new injury listed: his calf.
It doesn't seem right now that Lynch is in jeopardy of not playing Sunday against the New York Giants, though we will learn more tomorrow when the Seahawks practice again in Renton and then coach Pete Carroll announces the weekly, out-questionable-probably injury report for the game.
Max Unger fully participated today for the first time since he sprained his foot Oct. 6 at Washington. He hasn't played since, but today's return to work bodes well for the two-time Pro Bowl center starting against New York on Sunday. That would be a big plus for an offensive line that has had plenty of minus while he's been hurt.

Safety Kam Chancellor remained out and seems very iffy to play Sunday, though Carroll has said there is a chance he will. Chancellor's miss last weekend was his first game he'd sat out since 2011, and only the second of his career.
Michael Bennett has now sat out the last three Thursdays with a listed toe injury. He played in the last two games after doing that, so him being out today is not a huge concern.
Of those who didn't practice today, James Carpenter and Malcolm Smith are least likely to play. Carroll said Wednesday Smith is likely to be out until at least next weekend's game at Kansas City, if not longer.
Russell Okung, Doug Baldwin and Byron Maxwell being back in practice after missing Wednesday is a good sign all three will play Sunday. Maxwell has missed the last three games, with second-year man Tharold Simon making his first three NFL starts for him.
--Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said the team really likes Simon's length and speed on ball's in the air, and that it's been pleased with how Simon has grown in the last three games since a penalty-marred debut at St. Louis.
Quinn also said after today's practice that new defensive end Demarcus Dobbs could be ready to play Sunday, though the next couple days will determine that.
