Willson scored on an eight-yard reception for his first touchdown of the season Thursday in a 24-3 win against the Rams.
Willson caught all three of his targets. Even though he had a better game than Jimmy Graham (one catch on two targets for 31 yards), he's still safely behind Graham in the pecking order.
As long as he sustains such a workload this week, Willson will uphold head coach Pete Carroll's belief that the tight end is poised to end his DNP streak at one game Sunday in Green Bay. By doing so, Willson will serve as the primary backup to Jimmy Graham.
Head coach Pete Carroll expects Willson (knee) to be available for Sunday's game at Green Bay, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Previously absent for four games this season due to an MCL sprain in his right knee, Willson appears as if he'll miss just one this time around due to a sprained PCL. If so, he'll slot in as the No. 2 tight end behind Jimmy Graham in Week 14.
Willson (knee) is inactive for Sunday's contest versus the Panthers.
Friday's limited practice session wasn't enough to convince the training staff of Willson's readiness to take the field. Instead, he'll don street clothes for the fifth time in seven games, only this time due to a PCL sprain. Expect Nick Vannett to serve as the No. 2 tight end behind Jimmy Graham.
Willson (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Panthers.
Willson didn't practice this week prior to fitting in a limited session Friday, but that involvement could be enough to allow him to suit up Sunday evening. That being said, Willson reportedly suffered a sprained PCL in last weekend's loss to Tampa Bay, so although he's started running again, it's hard to expect much from him even if cleared to play this weekend.
