With Bradley McDougald questionable and Lano Hill doubtful, rookie Marquise Blair could make his first start Sunday. The second-round pick has only played 12 defensive snaps and has twice been a healthy scratch, but the Seahawks think he has the most potential of their young safeties. Said Pete Carroll: "He's a runner and a hitter. He's shown that and we don't have any question about that. It's just can he settle in and be comfortable with the calls and the adjustments ... and just play good."

Pete Carroll said Jarran Reed "must have worked really hard" during his six-game suspension based on how fit the defensive tackle looked in practice this week. "He didn't want to come in and have to take a few weeks to get acclimated and all that," Carroll said. "He did not approach this like that at all." Reed's return comes as starting defensive linemen Ziggy Ansah (ankle) and Quinton Jefferson (oblique) are listed as questionable for Sunday's game. Both were limited Friday.

The Seahawks list five starters as questionable for Sunday's game against Baltimore: left tackle Duane Brown, right guard D.J. Fluker, safety Bradley McDougald and defensive ends Ziggy Ansah and Quinton Jefferson. Fluker, Jefferson and Ansah were all limited Friday. Pete Carroll said Fluker is "looking pretty good." McDougald didn't practice Friday because of back spasms he's been dealing with since Tuesday, nor did Brown because of the biceps injury that kept him out last week.

In his weekly appearance on KIRO Radio 97.3 FM, Pete Carroll had some potentially good news on tight end Will Dissly, who is out for the season with an Achilles injury. Carroll described the procedure Dissly had Thursday as "minimally invasive" and "really successful." Carroll noted that the typical timetable for recovery from Achilles injuries like Dissly's is a year and said: "He'll get back a good couple months before he would have got back otherwise."

Pete Carroll told KIRO Radio 97.3 FM that left tackle Duane Brown (biceps) will be listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Baltimore, saying "it's not looking very good for him." So George Fant is expected to make his second straight start. Right guard D.J. Fluker (hamstring) is practicing Friday and has "a chance" to play. Defensive end Ziggy Ansah (ankle) and safety Bradley McDougald (back spasms) will be game-time decisions. Linebacker K.J. Wright (knee) "should be fine," Carroll said.

Left tackle Duane Brown, defensive end Ziggy Ansah and starting safeties Bradley McDougald and Lano Hill all missed practice for the second straight day Thursday. So their statuses for Sunday's game against Baltimore seem to be in serious question. Right guard D.J. Fluker was limited after not practicing Wednesday.

Russell Wilson said he loves Earl Thomas but hates having to play against him. Those two became close during their seven seasons with the Seahawks.

The Seahawks list six players (plus TE Will Dissly) as non-participants Wednesday: LT Duane Brown (biceps), RG D.J. Fluker (hamstring), S Lano Hill (elbow), S Bradley McDougald (back), LB K.J. Wright (knee) and DE Ziggy Ansah (ankle). WR Tyler Lockett and RB Chris Carson were limited (not injury-related). Dissly is still on the 53-man roster but is expected to be placed on IR due to his season-ending Achilles injury, perhaps when the Seahawks activate DT Jarran Reed by the end of the week.

What's clear from Pete Carroll's comments on Earl Thomas: he looks at the bigger picture of their relationship and not how it ended poorly. "My heart's pretty big, pretty wide open to these guys from the time we spend together and all the stuff that we do," he said. "It's way more important than something that happens, some gesture or some statement."

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Pete Carroll said his understanding is that Will Dissly will have Achilles surgery Thursday, so his season is indeed over. That leaves two true tight ends on the Seahawks' 53-man roster: Luke Willson and Jacob Hollister. George Fant, a de facto tight end, may have to start again at left tackle for Duane Brown Sunday vs. Baltimore. Carroll seemed to be hinting at another potential move at tight end when he said "we're working on some stuff." Brown didn't take part in the Wednesday walk-through.

Jarran Reed said he didn't get to bed until 3:30 a.m Monday morning because he was so excited to return to the Seahawks' facility with his six-game suspension over. Reed knew exactly how many days his suspension covered: 42. "I counted every one of them," he said. As for his readiness, Reed said: "I worked my tail off. Trust me: I'm ready."

The Seahawks are 18th in ESPN's Pass Rush Win Rate (42.6%) and 25th in generating pressure on opposing QBs (23.3%). Only five teams have fewer than their 10 sacks, and three have played one fewer game. That's been without Jarran Reed, who's back from his suspension. Said Pete Carroll: "When we mix it up now and we get Quinton Jefferson in there and J-Reed, it's going to be a better look for us. It's going to be more of a problem for our opponent. Hopefully, that'll open up things for everybody.”

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Jarran Reed's six-game suspension officially ended Monday, meaning he's allowed back at team headquarters and can resume practicing. The Seahawks have a roster exemption that will allow Reed to practice before he's re-activated, but they'll need to make a move to add him to their 53-man roster before Sunday's game. Also from the NFL's transaction wire: safety Adrian Colbert went unclaimed after being waived by Seattle Friday. He could end up back on the Seahawks' practice squad.

The Seahawks' defensive snap counts from Sunday: Lano Hill and Marquise Blair played 15 and eight defensive snaps, respectively, as Seattle rotated them in for Tedric Thompson and went with some three-safety looks. Only five snaps for first-round pick L.J. Collier, who had been a healthy scratch two of the previous three weeks.
