Seahawks release Super Bowl bye-week practice report
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Seahawks didn't take the practice field Wednesday during the team's bye week before Super Bowl XLIX, but they released a hypothetical Wednesday practice report, listing five players as DNP and two as going through a full practice.

Cornerback Richard Sherman, who sprained his elbow in the second half of Sunday's NFC Championship Game, is listed as a full participant along with tackle Justin Britt, putting the pair on track to be available for the title game.

Running back Marshawn Lynch and defensive end Michael Bennett would not have participated in practice due to non-injury-related reasons. Safety Earl Thomas (shoulder), guard J.R. Sweezy (ankle) and long snapper Clint Gresham (neck) would have joined them on the sidelines.

Seattle is a 1-point underdog for next Sunday's Super Bowl against New England.
