Seattle Seahawks - PlayerWatch
LB Bruce Irvin sat out Wednesday with a thigh injury but also should play against the 49ers.
DE Cliff Avril leads the Seahawks with 7.5 sacks and has 3.5 in the last four games as he has gotten healthy and begun to find his way in the Seattle defense.
Brandon Browner was a limited participant on Wednesday, his first action of any kind since injuring his groin at Atlanta on Nov. 10. He could play this weekend depending on the outcome of his appeal of a proposed suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
WR Percy Harvin did not participate in Seattle's practice on Wednesday and officially remains day-to-day. Coach Pete Carroll said that if Harvin can practice later in the week there is a chance he can play against the 49ers. He had a cortisone shot on his hip over the weekend in an attempt to speed up the healing process. Harvin sat out against the Saints while dealing with soreness from playing against the Vikings on Nov. 17.
WR Golden Tate sat out Wednesday with a hip injury but should play against the 49ers.
QB Russell Wilson has won 14 straight starts at home, the third-longest streak in NFL history.
FB Derrick Coleman scored his first career TD against New Orleans on a pass in the third quarter, and should continue to see time in a rotation with veteran Michael Robinson.
WR Jermaine Kearse was on the field for a career-high 57 snaps against the Saints, the most of any of Seattle's receivers. Kearse has proven invaluable as a complementary threat to Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin and taking advantage of the absences of Sidney Rice and Percy Harvin.
