Seahawks head coach Jim Mora said during this morning’s press conference that cornerback Josh Wilson was a quick healer.
And he wasn’t joking. Wilson, who suffered a high ankle sprain against San Francisco just over a week ago, seemed to be moving well during practice today. He was a limited participant in practice.
“Every day you go out there and see what you can do, and every day it’s gotten better,” Wilson said about his ankle.
Asked if he had any issues with movement, Wilson had this to say: “I just got back on the field. I let you know later in the week how it feels,”
Wilson said he doesn’t know if he’ll be ready for Sunday, but will continue to go out and practice and see where he’s at on Friday.
Along with Wilson, Ken Lucas (groin) was a limited participants in practice.
Sean Locklear (ankle) and Leroy Hill (groin) are out.
Matt Hasselbeck (rib), Walter Jones (knee), Rob Sims (oblique), Jordan Babineaux (neck), Justin Griffith (knee) and Brandon Frye (groin) did not practice.
And Lofa Tatupu (hamstring) was a full participant in practice today.
DL Cory Redding was not at practice, but had an excused absence and is expected to practice on Thursday.
For Indianapolis, LB Gary Brackett (knee), DT Keyunta Dawson (foot), DE Dwight Freeney (quad), WR Anthony Gonzalez (knee), DB Kelvin Hayden (hamstring), DB Bob Sanders and RB Chad Simpson (abdomen) did not practice.
Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley was asked if he goes to bed dreaming about Indianapolis quarterback Peyton Manning this week.
“You watch all of the tapes, and you watch all of the teams that have played him and defended him over the years – you know, the New Englands that have lined up against him over and over again – and they change their game plan every time they play him,” Bradley said. “So yeah, you watch him so much — some of his antics – and you study every bit a part of his game, from the cadence and how he handles that, to how he manages to offense to substitutions. And I think you just can’t help but see him all the time.”
