As the Seattle Seahawks continue their preparations in practice as the team prepares for the Pittsburgh Steelers, quite a few players were either limited or did not practice at all on Thursday, including wide receiver Sidney Rice. Let's take a closer look at the report:
Full Participation: David Hawthorne, LB; Robert Gallery, G
Limited Participation: Sidney Rice, WR
Did Not Participate: Dexter Davis, DE; Jarriel King, T; Byron Maxwell, CB; Michael Robinson, FB; Malcolm Smith, LB
As for their availability for Sunday's showdown, both Hawthorne and Gallery should be good to go. Both are expected to be listed as probable. Rice's injured shoulder has continued to slowly progress the last few days and it is still relatively unknown if he will be able to play this weekend.
This was the second consecutive day Davis, King, Maxwell, Robinson, and Smith all did not practice and they will all likely miss playing time for at least another week.
As for the Steelers, most of their team remains relatively healthy heading into week two. Wide receiver Jericho Cotchery will likely miss yet another game and just about everyone returned to practice after a light day of workouts on Wednesday. Only two players -- Chris Kemoeatu and Bryant McFadden -- remained limited and both will be a game time decision.
