Lynch and Rice headline a group of players who did not practice Wednesday.
Coming off their huge win against the San Francisco 49ers, the Seattle Seahawks resumed practice Wednesday down a handful of players as they get ready to battle the St. Louis Rams in Sunday's season finale.
On the offensive side of the ball, running back Marshawn Lynch (back), wide receiver Sidney Rice (knee), tight end Anthony McCoy (back) and tackle Breno Giacomini (elbow) all did not participate Wednesday. As noted weekly, Lynch customarily has sat out practices this season to rest his back.
Defensively, defensive end Red Bryant (foot), linebacker Leroy Hill (hamstring) and cornerback Walter Thurmond (hamstring) all sat out. On a positive note, Marcus Trufant returned to practice after being out several weeks.
Safety Earl Thomas was also listed on the injury report with an ankle injury, but as a full participant.
Pete Carroll also noted in his presser this afternoon that LB Malcolm Smith had a groin injury and would not practice, however, he was not listed on the injury report.
Carroll said LB Leroy Hill (hamstring) and LB Malcolm Smith (groin) will be dealing with their issues throughout the week. Will not practice— Curtis Crabtree (@Curtis_Crabtree) December 26, 2012
