Only K.J. Wright and Percy Harvin are listed as out for Sunday. Jermaine Kearse (ankle) is listed as questionable. If he can’t go, more snaps for Ricardo Lockette.

In other news:

> When asked if they are going to make a roster move with Percy Harvin, Pete Carroll said, “No.” He could well just be talking about Friday. He was again cryptic. UPDATE (2:16): The Seahawks have waived CB Perrish Cox, according to the NFL transactions wire. That would presumably be the move to clear a spot for Walter Thurmond and keep Harvin off IR, for now.

> Sounds like Doug Baldwin will be the kick returner.

> Walter Thurmond will be active for Sunday’s game. Byron Maxwell will again start at corner. Thurmond said he wasn’t sure what his role will be. He also said the time off gave him a chance to rest his knees, which were bothering him.

> Thurmond was here the whole time and said the transition back to the field was smooth. He said he was studying while out to “keep up with the mental aspects of the game.” He was asked if he felt the need to explain anything to the team.

“I didn’t have to explain anything to anybody,” Thurmond said. “Everybody understood the situation. We’re all humans, we all make mistakes. It’s just a great group of guys in here. No one in here was judgmental about the situation. If anything, they were more encouraging than anything.

“Life’s about living and learning from your mistakes. If you’re not learning from your mistakes, you’re just going to keep making more mistakes.”

> Tavon Austin limited in practice for the Rams.

  1. It could be PC is a little sensitive on the subject of Harvin and just does not want talk about it. After all, he paid the guy millions and gave up a 1st round pick for what, one catch and a punt return? I would say this goes down as not one of their (PC and JS) better moves.

  2. They’ve been historically bad with 1st round picks anyway (although the jury is still out on Irvin).

    I’d be 100 percent for trading Harvin back to the Vikings for a new lawnmower for VMAC.

  3. SandpointHawk says:

    Todd: We seem to have a double dip of the St. Louis report…

  4. Is the Rams injury report listed twice with no Seahawks report?

  5. Todd Dybas says:

    We did have a double-dip. Fixed now. Thanks for pointing it out.

  6. I sure hope Harvin can play in January, even if I’m trying to convince myself not to count on it. He’s so dang good and our offense really needs a sparkplug and he’d be a heck of a sparkplug for the WR position for Wilson in everything he can do! Baldwin may be a serviceable KR but Harvin is the best at that in the NFL IMO.

  7. Bobby, I was as on board with the PH trade as anyone when it happened, but now it makes me sick. Dude rushed back to play a few snaps against his old team, and has been dead silent ever since. If he waited 2 weeks after the MIN game, maybe he would have been around for now? Who knows. I know right now, this is one of the biggest busts in trade history.

  8. Apparently Kearse hasn’t practiced the entire week now. I don’t see how he can even be active for the game. A hobbled Kearse severely hurts the passing game.

  9. yellaman says:

    I was and still am a believer in the PH trade but I just thinking what if Seattle would have kept the pick draft pick and drafted Cordarrelle Patterson with the 25th pick. Minnesota drafted him late in the first round and he had great year as a KR and was part of the offense in the later part of the season ( had 43 receptions and 438 rec yards). How would he look right know with in Seahawk blue as our KR and as our big and speedy WR. because our current WR core is average at best without Rice and Harvin. Also where are all those bloggers saying Tate is worthy of a max contract. If Tate wants to get paid he better start getting separation in his game. This Team has a liability at the WR IMO

  10. banosser says:

    Tate, Baldwin & Wilson (Luke) will need to really step it up… Miller will be helping on the the DE… Clemens will need to be trying to throw from his back.. and I anticipate an entirely different Hawk offensive game plan from last week…

    As for PH.. you can’t hold the FO responsible for injuries… If he can’t go this yr, yes it will be extremely disappointing, but he still will have yrs of service for the Hawks ahead of him…

  11. With Rice out, and 4 Percy Harvin’s, there’s still no massive wide receivers on the team. I hope I’m wrong about this, but with Percy’s injury history, I feel like the Vikings got away with highway robbery.

  12. yellaman – I have thought that many times (drafting Patterson instead of trading for Harvin). Patterson was also a character risk but whereas Percy is getting over $11 million per season, Patterson is making less than $8 million over 4 years and the 25th pick last year, where we would/should have taken him – is still making less than $8 million over 4 years. That’s a lot of money for guys on our team who we’d like to extend when the time comes. Oh well… nothing we can do about it now.

  13. BTW, I’m developing a man crush on Tate more and more. When it’s all said and done, I wouldn’t be shocked if Tater ended up being a better overall player through his entire career than Harvin. Just sucks that Tater is going to do it elsewhere.

  14. Tate disappears for long stretches of games or even parts of the season.

    6’2. 210. 4.3.

  15. I loved the PH trade when it happened. Now it makes me sick. It is obvious he had an injury he was not telling anyone before he signed. He is not going to play in January. Seems they are keeping him off IR due to some verbage in his contract (just a guess obviously). But you can tell a big change in petes tone towards PH as of late. To me it signals that he is done this year and will not play. If he can not be healthy in time for trianing camp and OTA’s in 14′, you gotta cut his ass. Damn, what a waste, and what a POS for hiding an injury. Could he really have hurt it during non contact drills? No contact, just running. He told Pete he can’t pin point a time when he hurt it. Sounds to me like he is lying to pete. UGH, just frustrated over all the money/talent lost in this trade

  16. GeorgiaHawk says:

    “Woo ah, Percy Percy me”
    “Ah things ain’t what they used to be, no no”
    “Where did all the WRs go?”
    “Now were down to three undrafted free agents and a donut thief I don’t know where this will go”
    “Woo Percy, Percy me”
    “Ah things ain’t what they used to be, no no”
    “Wish Sydney Rice was back today, but now we have to see poor Lockette play.”
    “Ah oh Percy, Percy me”
    “Ah things ain’t what they used to be, no no”
    “Rest of the West is gaining ground and there’s no sign of you being around”
    “Oh Percy, Percy me”
    “Ah things ain’t what they could to be”

  17. Nice one, GH! LOL

  18. pabuwal, he’s also on the tail end of the average 3 year maturity period for the average NFL wide receiver.

    who is 6’2 210 and runs a 4.3?

    Cordarelle Patterson is 6’3 205, and I’d much rather have him than Percy,at least as of right now.

  19. DisplacedSeahawkFan says:

    For what’s it’s worth, if Percy Harvin doesn’t play at all this year, and we win the Superbowl with out him, I’m in favor of a petition denying him a championship ring.

  20. seaturkeys says:

    Percy played this year.

  21. RADE – He’s talking about Lockette.

  22. Very true, I actually forgot about him. I hope he has the meat to take the tops off of defenses. Just really uncomfortable with our #1 and #2 WR’s out. Tate is a pretty good #2, but when he is your #1, you have some problems.

  23. Wilson, Unger, Lynch, Sherman, Thomas and Chancellor all made the Pro Bowl.

  24. the fact that Jeremy Lane didn’t make it as a special teamer is complete and utter BS. How many punt return yards did the hawks allow this year again?

  25. raymaines says:

    the fact that Unger and Chancellor did make is also complete and utter BS. Fair is fair.

  26. MoSeahawk12 says:

    More Harvin hate…….the dude was checked out by the team doctors and they still offered and he signed the contract. Pete and John know what they want and what they are doing. This team was complete crap before they came in four years ago. They signed the guy and he got injured and had major surgery four months ago. I’m sure everyone here would be 100% healthy and doing their non professional football player job full speed in that amount of time. The team has made it this far without him and should be able to go the distance without him. They made this trade for the long term and not for “just win this season”. Harvin is being held out by trainers, not Percy. Why waste so much time and energy on the negative. 12-3 with the next win winning the division and home field throughout the playoffs. If Marshawn would have had a major injury right after they signed him, would he be a bad Seahawk and unworthy of the trade? Probably a poor example as many were unhappy right after they traded for him as well. Negative breeds negative. Already plenty of that around here.

  27. mengland says:

    I had a dream last night that Percy Harvin was playing in the Playoffs. I know, I should get a life, or at least dream about one. I’ll take that as a good sign.

  28. Dukeshire says:

    Wait, are you suggesting Chancellor isn’t deserving of being voted to the pro bowl? Wow.

  29. MoSeahawk, You are not hearing PH hate – at least not from me. You are hearing some disappointment in the decision process of PC and JS when they likely knew what Harvin’s health was when they paid through the nose for him. Because we all know that PC can go “emotional” (his word) from time to time in his decision making, I suspect this has more to with PC than JS. They have done an excellent job building this team up to now, but let’s face it – they really screwed the pooch on this one.

  30. Don’t think that Unger and Okung deserve it, but Kam certainly does IMO. Plenty of undeserving players make it, especially on the o-line where it’s especially hard to judge the players.

    “They’ve been historically bad with 1st round picks anyway (although the jury is still out on Irvin).”

    This oft-repeated fallacy cannot die soon enough. PC/JS have made 4 1st round picks. ET and Okung are both great and cornerstones of the team. Carp has been a bust. I certainly don’t think you can give a bad grade to Irvin. He led all rookies in sacks his rookie year and has made a nice transition to LB if you ask me and many others here. Even if you count Irvin as a bust, they’re still 2/4 for a 50% rate of picking good players. 1st round picks are typically a 50/50 proposition.

    I guess we fans just have really high standards? Turning one of the oldest and least talented rosters in the NFL into one of the youngest and most talented rosters in 3 years isn’t enough unless you knock every 1st round pick out of the park?

    P.S. I wanted them to draft Chandler Jones in the 2012 draft. I guess if I was running the front office instead of PC/JS then they’d already have HFA sown up. ;-)

  31. “They have done an excellent job building this team up to now, but let’s face it – they really screwed the pooch on this one.”

    There’s nothing to face yet. It hasn’t even been one full season yet. All this is is short-sighted hyperbole that shouldn’t really been taken seriously.

  32. hawkdawg says:

    Irvin is not the impact player a mid-first round pick should be. Yet. But he is certainly no bust yet, either.

    Carp is a low first round pick, but even at that he’s one season away from Busthood, in my opinion.

    Okung’s stats always seem to be better than his play, but those stats for a LT are pro bowl type numbers. Putting aside he missed a good part of the season of course.

    Unger must have made it on reputation. He regressed this year, especially in the run game.

    I have no problem at all with Kam making it.

  33. More RL and LW in the passing game might be interesting, if RW has time or they run quick slants. Percy is young enough that he will either recover by next season or retire a very rich young man. Seeing him in the playoffs would be better though.

  34. Irvin is an excellent player for a 2nd or 3rd round pick.

    I understand that the front office has done well, but it doesn’t mean I need to worship the ground they walk on. They’re liable for their mistakes.

  35. RADEoN, I never said that you have to worship the ground they walk on. You should be accurate with your criticism though. Even if you consider Irvin a bust, which even you admitted it was too early to do, then they are still 2 for 4 with first round picks. And the 2 they got right they knocked out of the freaking park. Being right 50% of the time with 1st rounders is the league norm. So they would be AT LEAST historically AVERAGE, not BAD. That was my point.

    There are no perfect GMs or coaches out there that you can hire. I challenge you to name some that have turned a team around as quickly and completely as JS/PC have from recent memory. I’d rather not waste my time whining about the relatively few mistakes they’ve made. You’re free to do so if you wish.
