Seattle Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice did not practice for a second straight day because of a knee issue, making his availability for Sunday’s game in question.
Tight end Zach Miller also did not practice because of a foot injury. Miller was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday.
Running back Marshawn Lynch (back) was a limited participant for a second straight day. And offensive tackle Russell Okung (knee) returned to practice as a limited participant a day after sitting out on Wednesday.
Receiver Golden Tate (knee), defensive end (hamstring) and cornerback Byron Maxwell (shoulder) were full participants.
Receiver Charly Martin (chest) remains out for this week.
Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley discussed his unit’s performance against Arizona last week after practice.
Specifically, Bradley talked about the 80-yard drive led by Kevin Kolb that ended up being the game-winning touchdown.
“That’s ‘The Drive’ we called it in the meeting, just because so many things happened,” Bradley said. “I think it was at a time where we made some mental mistakes. We had some busts in coverage, and part of it was just the communication that took place on the field, and being into it.”
Bradley said on the last play where Andre Roberts scored on a 6-yard stab route against Brandon Browner, he chose to be more aggressive and bring pressure.
“That was probably more on me,” Bradley said. “But the other things, we all take responsibility for it. And we’ve just got to execute better in those situations.”
Bradley said Seattle did not consider taking a timeout to slow down Arizona on that drive because he felt the defensive front was getting pressure on Kolb.
“Our rush was really good,” Bradley said. “If you go back and look at it, we had batted ball. We affected the quarterback. We hit the quarterback. So our D-line I thought did really a good job on that.
“Now, as the series went on and they got closer, I’m sure we got a little bit gassed and we should rotate guys in, but for the most part up front they played really well. It was more on the back end, just the communication thing.”
Bradley also said that overall Bruce Irvin was good in his first regular-season game.
“I think it was pretty solid for him,” Bradley said. “He expects, and we expect to get a lot of rush out of him, and those opportunities will come. But he’s playing extremely hard. So our big talk with him is just keep coming, and they’ll come. Just keeping like you are and you’ll get your opportunities.”
Seattle also made some practice squad moves, releasing linebacker Korey Toomer and offensive guard Rishaw Johnson from the practice squad. In their place, Seattle brought back linebacker Allen Bradford and added offensive lineman Michael Person.
For Dallas, center Phil Costa (back), safety Matt Johnson (hamstring) and nose tackle Jay Rattliff (ankle) did not participate in practice.
Outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware (hamstring) was a limited participant.
Receiver Miles Austin (hamstring), receiver Andre Holmes (knee), cornerback Mike Jenkins (shoulder), running back Felix Jones (ribs), safety Danny McCray (neck), running back DeMarco Murray (wrist), linebacker Kyle Wilber (thumb), tight end Jason Witten (abdomen) and safety Gerald Sensabaugh (concussion) were full participants.
