G John Moffitt only Seahawk player deemed unlikely to play Thursday

RENTON -- The Seahawks were back at work Monday, getting ready for Thursday's game at San Francisco, and coach Pete Carroll is hoping to have most of his players back in time for the game.

That includes safety Kam Chancellor, who finished Sunday's game despite an elbow injury. Cornerback Byron Maxwell also suffered an injury, a strained hamstring, but could be back.

Guard John Moffitt is the only one who has already been deemed unlikely to play, according to Carroll.

"Everybody else, it looks like they have a chance," Carroll said, "so we should be in pretty good shape."

Defensive tackle Clinton McDonald missed this week's game with a groin injury. Does he have a chance to come back this week?

"He does," Carroll said. "We'll wait and see what happens."

Also, cornerback Walter Thurmond is now eligible to begin practicing with the team, and the Seahawks have a three-week window in which to activate him. He began this season on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list as he recovered from a leg injury. While Carroll didn't rule out the possibility Thurmond would play this week, it sounds unlikely.

"It's not the right week to bring him back because we're not even practicing the way we normally practice," Carroll said, "so we're going to determine that by tomorrow (Tuesday)."

The league requires teams to release an injury report on Monday, and Chancellor was listed as someone who would have missed practice because of an ankle injury. However, the Seahawks didn't have a full practice per se so this was a more theoretical exercise.
