For the third straight day wide receivers Mike Williams and Ben Obomanu did not practice. Williams did some work with trainers along the sidelines before the 45-minute workout, and both were spectators during today’s walk-through.
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said both will be game-time decisions.
“We have to plan like he’s not there,” Carroll said. “And fortunately guys have practiced well. Ruvell Martin has done a nice job in that spot, and Golden Tate has had a nice week, too. I think Ben is going to have a chance to play in this game, also.”
Martin and Golden Tate will be counted on to fill in if Williams can’t go. Carroll also said that defensive tackle Colin Cole, who practiced all week, will play on Sunday. Offensive lineman Chester Pitts (ankle) did not practice all week and is doubtful for Sunday.
Linebacker Lofa Tatupu (knee) returned to practice and should play on Sunday.
It appears that of the two, Obomanu is the more likely to play down in San Francisco.
“He’s got stitches in his hand and they’re going to be there on game day,” Carroll said. “You just got to see how it works for him, and the little device that they’re putting on his hand works out for him and all of that. They’ve been experimenting all week, and everybody feels good about it. I think he’s going to play.”
Carroll said that Williams ran a little more last week than this week on Friday.
