Sweezy, Bennett practice; Lynch sits out
By Terry Blount
RENTON, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks guard J.R. Sweezy and defensive lineman Michael Bennett returned to full practice participation Thursday after sitting out Wednesday. Sweezy was listed with an elbow issue and Bennett was ill.
Running back Marshawn Lynch did not practice for the second consecutive day and is listed with a knee injury, but he played the entire game Monday night at St. Louis. It will be a surprise if he doesn't play Sunday against Tampa Bay.
The wait for Percy Harvin's debut continues. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed that receiver Harvin will not play Sunday.
"Percy won't play this week," Carroll said on Sirius Radio. "He's getting close, but not close enough."
Defensive tackle Brandon Mebane did not practice Thursday, but it was not injury related.
Also missing practice were fullback Derrick Coleman and safety Jeron Johnson (both with hamstring injuries) and offensive tackle Breno Giacomini, who had arthroscopic knee surgery Sept. 30.
