Jim Mora usually begins his Wednesday news conference with a lengthy list of injured players who will not practice. Today, the Seahawks coach said there is only one player who probably won’t work today – linebacker Will Herring, who had an injection to help his recovery from injuring a shoulder in Sunday’s game against the Cowboys.
Left tackle Sean Locklear is scheduled to practice on a limited basis, a definite plus after he had trouble moving laterally in his pregame workout on Sunday. If he is able to practice more Thursday and Friday, there is a chance he will play this week against the Detroit Lions after missing the past five games with a high ankle sprain.
Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (soreness), free safety Jordan Babineaux (soreness), cornerback Ken Lucas (shoulder stinger) and wide receiver Ben Obomanu (strained oblique) also will be limited when the players hit the practice field at 11:25, but each is expected to play against the Lions.
“Other than Herring, we should have everybody doing something,” Mora said. “That’s a real positive for this football team.”
