The Seattle Seahawks' already slim injury report coming into Sunday's NFC Wild Card game against the Washington Redskins had a few tweaks on Thursday.

Suffering from a knee injury, cornerback Jeremy Lane was the only player who sat out of practice, and running back Marshawn Lynch participated in full after being limited on Wednesday because of a season-long back ailment, according to the Everett Herald's John Boyle.

Lynch had been restricted in practices throughout the season, but he put up 1,590 yards on the ground.

The loss of Lane hurts the depth at cornerback for Pete Carroll's team, but they should be able to handle it. Lane had 15 tackles in his rookie season out of Northwestern State-Louisiana, mostly in place of Seattle's big-name defensive backs. He earned time because of injuries to Walter Thurmond, Marcus Trufant and then the suspension to Brandon Browner because of a positive drug test.

Browner sat out the final four games of the regular season, but has no games left on his suspension heading into the playoffs.
