Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson preparing to play

Posted by Danny O'Neil

RENTON -- Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson is listed as questionable on the Seahawks injury report.

It appears much more likely he will play though after Friday's walk-through workout in which he did the most extensive throwing he has done since injuring his right pectoral muscle on Oct. 9 at New York.

"Tarvaris had his best day in the last couple of weeks," coach Pete Carroll said. "He just started to come out of it, and threw the ball well. He's still questionable, I guess is (how) we list him. We'll take it to the next couple days and see where we are, but that's a very good sign. He felt the best, he had the most work. We'll see what happens with that."

Jackson was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, and backup Charlie Whitehurst taking the throwing work during practice.

Jackson had been working with the first-unit offense with the walk-through portion of practice, but on Friday, he also threw the ball.

"This is probably my best day, today," Jackson said. "I still kind of feel it when I throw a little bit. I've already kind of got it in my head that there's going to be some pain when I throw a little bit. There's going to be a little soreness."

The key, Jackson said, is whether the injury prevents him from doing certain things.

"Whether I can make all the throws and not be affected by my pec," he said.

Friday's workout was a step forward.

"I think it was more important for the coaches to see it than me," Jackson said. "They don't want to throw you out there, throw you in a bad position when you can't really make the plays that you normally can make. So I think it was good for those guys to see that, for me to go out there and make the throws and prove to myself I can do it."

Starters TE Zach Miller, C Max Unger and RB Marshawn Lynch -- who all missed last week's game -- are probable, meaning there is a virtual certainty they will be available for normal duty.
