Although San Francisco 49ers safety Jimmie Ward was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list on August 23, he has been limited at practice.

Sherman did not practice Wednesday or Thursday because of a hamstring injury, but returned as a limited participant Friday. "Initially, our bodies do heal and we have something to do with it, but he looks like he could play and he looked good today". He was in the booth for Seattle's last game prior to last weekend's 2017 season opener, for Seattle's divisional-playoff loss at Atlanta on January 14.

Last season, the Seahawks beat the 49ers 37-18 in Seattle a week after a desultory 9-3 loss to the Rams, then closed out the regular season with a 25-23 win in the Bay Area after a home defeat to the Cardinals knocked the Seahawks out of the number-two playoff seeding.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Sherman would be a game-time decision, but he sounded optimistic that Sherman would be able to play. Richard told ESPN's Brady Henderson "We're just being cautious with him".

"There was a couple of throws that he had chances, but they got broken up", Carroll said following the loss to Green Bay.

Rawls got in a full week of practice this week and in Week 1 while recovering from an ankle injury.

And since late night's Stephen Colbert is hosting, you can nearly guarantee that politics will take center stage Sunday night. With drama category favorite Game of Thrones ineligible this year due to its summer start date, the race is wide open.

The only player likely to miss the game is LB Terence Garvin, listed as doubtful with a shoulder injury.

Still, if the Seahawks can't get the running game going at home against the 49ers with projected starting tailback Thomas Rawls back in the fold, it will be fair to ask when they will get it going.

The Seahawks last week couldn't make the big plays when they needed them and they couldn't make the big plays they did make pay off. "He's a very smart player, very savvy guy, he knows what he's doing, and he'll play good football for us". He finished that game and played two weeks later in the Super Bowl. "We'll see how this works out". But, with the offensive line being such a question mark for Seattle it should allow this to stay a competitive game into the second half.

"I'm a really adaptable guy", Richardson said.

Weather could play a role in the outcome of this game as the Seattle area is expected to get some significant rainfall for the first time since June.

"When you've been in this league long enough, you see a whole bunch of different things happen", Lazor said. Carroll said Sherman has reminded him of that this week. So, instead of playing with massive chalk, I'm going to side with the over on the total.
