The Seahawks wrapped up practice this afternoon, again working outside as they get ready for this Sunday’s contest against Tampa Bay at Qwest Field.
Seattle head coach Jim Mora said Aaron Curry (hip) should be able to go on Sunday. He was a full participant in practice and is listed as probable.
“We came in on Monday and he was a lot better,” Mora said about Curry. “And when they indicated that it was muscle, soft tissue more than bone, they were pretty confident, our training staff, by the end of the week he’d probably be ready to go. And he is.”
The only player that might not go this weekend is linebacker D.D. Lewis (knee), who is listed as questionable on the practice report, and of course Nate Burleson (ankle) who is out this week after suffering a high-ankle sprain against Houston last week.
Mora said Spencer will play the first quarter at right guard, and second-year player Mike Gibson will play the second quarter at right guard, and might stay there if he performs well.
“We’re going to be very flexible with that,” Mora said. “If we go out and things are going real well, I don’t know if we’ll make that adjustment. We’ll see.”
Mora also said Sean Locklear will start at left tackle.
Mora said with Burleson out, Justin Forsett will do the punt returns, with Ben Obomanu backing Forsett up.
For Tampa Bay, tight end Kellen Winslow is listed on the injury report with a knee issue, and did not practice on Friday, and so his status is questionable for Sunday.
