The Seahawks go to Nashville on Sunday to take on the Tennessee Titans. Seattle remains relatively healthy through two games. (This is where I knock on wood.) Here is an updated list of who’s going to play and who will not.

Jimmy Graham

Graham, having a pretty underwhelming season so far, sprained his ankle against the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday. He did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday but did participate in the walk-through on Friday.

According to coach Pete Carroll, “He made it through the whole practice and did everything. He practiced full, so he’ll be alright.” Graham is officially listed as questionable for Sunday. But Carroll seems to expect Graham to play, so 12s should too.

The pain of the linebackers

Two other players listed as questionable are linebackers Terence Garvin and D.J. Alexander. Garvin has a shoulder issue and Alexander is dealing with a hamstring strain. Garvin, of course, missed the 49ers game. In his place, though, Michael Wilhoite played well.

Both Garvin and Alexander are very good at special teams. The Titans rank 21st in kickoff returns with an average of 21 yard-per. But Tennessee is third in punt returns with three returns for an average of 20 yards a return. Needless to say, the Seahawks might need all the healthy bodies they have to keep the Titans from gaining good field position on punt returns.

Neiko Thorpe

Thorpe is out for Sunday. Thorpe, like Graham, injured an ankle against the 49ers. He did not practice this week and will not play against the Titans.
