The Seahawks did not actually practice Thursday, but Jordan's estimated participation is a good sign. Jordan appears to have fully recovered from a knee injury sustained during a Week 11 win over the Packers, and is on track for Sunday's tilt against the Panthers.
Jordan (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Jordan sat out last week's win over the Packers due to the injury and doesn't appear to be nearing a return to full health yet. If Jordan is unable to go Sunday in Carolina, Branden Jackson and Rasheem Green would see enhanced roles in the Seahawks' defensive-end rotation.
Jordan (knee) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Packers.
Jordan was able to log two full practice sessions to end the week, so his lack of availability for Thursday Night Football is unexpected. It remains to be seen whether the rotational defensive end aggravated his knee injury during practice or the Seahawks are simply taking a cautious approach to Jordan's recovery. As long as Jordan remains sidelined, Branden Jackson will serve as the top backup to starter Quinton Jefferson.
Jordan has missed two consecutive games due to a knee injury and was limited in practice to begin the week, so his unrestricted return to the practice field is a good sign. Friday's injury report should shed some light on the rotational defensive end's chances of playing against the Lions on Sunday.
