Position Listing
Ryan Murphy
The Seahawks have six of their eight draft picks under contract.

Picks that have signed are:

Fourth-round guard Terry Poole, fourth-round guard Mark Glowinski, sixth-round defensive end Obum Gwacham, fifth-round cornerback Tye Smith, sixth-round center Kristjan Sokoli and seventh-round safety Ryan Murphy.

The only picks yet to sign with the team are second-round defensive end Frank Clark and third-round receiver Tyler Lockett.

Geno Smith
Smith will enter the season as the Giants' backup quarterback after Josh Johnson was released Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Smith and Johnson vied for the job throughout the offseason and preseason, with the latter even earning a start at one point. However, Smith must have proved the health of his right knee enough to earn the trust of the coaching staff. Although Eli Manning has started 199 consecutive regular-season games, Smith will now be called upon in garbage time or in the event of an injury. Rounding out the QB depth chart is 2017 second-round pick Davis Webb.

Michael Hunter
Hunter, who suffered a hamstring injury in Sunday's game against the Broncos, was waived/injured by the Giants on Tuesday.

Hunter was waived in order to create a roster spot for Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie, who is returning from his indefinite suspension this week. The cornerback likely will end up on the Giants' injured reserve as soon as he clears waivers.

Hamstring - Questionable for Week 9 vs. L.A. Rams
Kerry Wynn
Wynn signed his exclusive rights tender with the Giants on Tuesday, Dan Duggan of NJ Advanced Media reports.

Wynn visited the Patriots last week but will ultimately remain in the Big Apple, where he has spent his entire three-year career, playing mainly in a special teams role. Last season, he recorded 12 tackles and 0.5 sacks through 14 games with the Giants.

Dalvin Tomlinson
The Giants selected Tomlinson in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 55th overall.

With Johnathan Hankins on the way out, the Giants had a need for a big defensive tackle. Tomlinson is certainly that at 6-foot-3, 310 pounds, but he also did well with his athletic testing at the Combine. He likely won't be an IDP factor, but Tomlinson should be a good replacement for Hankins as a run stopper.

Matt LaCosse
Lacosse (knee) resigned with the Giants on Tuesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

Lacosse missed the entirety of last season with a torn ACL and only played in two games during his 2015 rookie season, so he has much to prove before becoming a factor in the Giants offense.

Paul Perkins
Perkins (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Perkins was able to practice on a limited basis this week, but he has not yet recovered to the point where he is ready for game action. With him able to get some work in this week and the Giants on bye next week, though, it seems likely he could return for the team's next game in Week 9. Orleans Darkwa is the favorite to be the top running back this week, but Week 6 was the first time all season he led Giants running backs in snaps, and Shane Vereen and Wayne Gallman could both still be involved in some fashion.

Ribs - Inactive for Week 7 vs. Seattle
Ross Cockrell
The Steelers traded Cockrell to the Giants in exchange for a conditional draft pick, Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter reports.

Cockrell wasn't seeming likely to make the final roster, so it's smart for the Steelers to get something in return, rather than release him. With the Giants, Cockrell will provide depth behind starters Janoris Jenkins and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

J.T. Thomas
Thomas (groin) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Eagles, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

Thomas suffered some sort of groin injury this past Monday against the Lions. His absence should open up more snaps for Keenan Robinson and Curtis Grant.

Groin - Injured Reserve
Damon Harrison
Harrison recorded his first sack of the season in Sunday night's win over the Broncos.

Harrison added four tackles (three solo) to go along with his take down of the quarterback. The 28-year-old defensive tackle was on the field for just 32 defensive snaps (40.0 percent).

Eli Apple
Apple logged three passes defended to go along with five solo tackles in Sunday's victory over the Broncos.

Apple matched his season total for passes defended in the outing. He did all his damage in 78 defensive snaps (96.0 percent). The 22-year-old should continue to present problems for opposing quarterbacks as the season goes on.

Keeon Johnson
Foot - Injured Reserve
Orleans Darkwa
Darkwa ran the ball nine times for 35 yards and caught all three of his targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 24-7 loss to the Seahawks.

After an impressive 21-rush, 117 yard performance against an elite Denver defense in Week 6, Darkwa was limited to single-digit carries in this contest much as he had been in the Giants' first four games. Nevertheless, the Tulane product still led the New York backfield in touches and remains the team's best bet for consistent fantasy production. After their Week 8 bye, the Giants have a pair of palatable rushing matchups on tap with the Rams and Niners in Weeks 9 and 10.

Cap Capi
Capi suffered a hamstring injury during Sunday's game against the Seahawks and will not return, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

Capi is merely a depth player along the Giants' defensive line, but his injury does thin the team's rotation out a bit.

Hamstring - Questionable for Week 9 vs. L.A. Rams
Janoris Jenkins
Jenkins recorded his first interception of the season in Sunday night's win over the Broncos.

Jenkins took the pick 43-yards to the house. The play came just before halftime to give the Giants a two touchdown advantage. The 28-year-old cornerback was on the field for 78 defensive snaps (96.0 percent).

John Jerry
Jerry (tooth) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Jerry was held out of Wednesday's practice entirely due to the mouth issue, but the day off looks to have been all he needed. Expect Jerry to be active for Sunday's home contest against the Seahawks.

Jordan Williams
Williams was waived by the Giants on Saturday, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Williams totaled six tackles and one sack in four preseason games for the Giants, but ultimately didn't quite show enough to warrant a roster spot. The 24-year-old has bounced around a few teams' practice squads after going undrafted in 2015 and has yet to appear in an NFL game.

Odell Beckham
Beckham (ankle), who was placed on injured reserve Monday, underwent season-ending surgery, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

In addition to Beckham, the Giants now use an IR spot for fellow receiver Dwayne Harris (foot), who is scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery Tuesday. This opened up roster spots for Tavarres King and Travis Rudolph. It's expected that Brandon Marshall (ankle) will soon join Beckham and Harris on IR after undergoing his own season-ending surgery Tuesday, leaving Sterling Shepard (ankle) as the Giants' new unquestioned top receiver. Those absences are also likely to open up starting roles for holdover Roger Lewis and King, who were both listed as members of the first team along with Shepard on the Giants' unofficial depth chart heading into Sunday's game against the Broncos, according to Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record. Tight end Evan Engram, who boasts enough speed to line up out wide, could also benefit from increased targets with the losses of Beckham, Marshall and Harris creating a major void in the Giants' passing attack.

Ankle - Injured Reserve
Evan Engram
Engram hauled six of his 12 targets for 60 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

The rookie tight end led the Giants in receptions and yards for the second straight week and had twice as many targets as his nearest competition. His third touchdown of the season gave the Giants the lead early in the second quarter, but that would be all the scoring they would do on the day. The first-round pick has established himself as Eli Manning's go-to guy now that Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall are out for the year. The Giants are headed for a bye in Week 8, but Engram should continue to provide stable production in Week 9 and beyond, even with the likely return of Sterling Shepard from an ankle injury.

Jalen Williams
Josh Banks
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Chad Wheeler
No Updates
Nigel Harris
The Giants claimed Harris off waivers Tuesday, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

Harris, who was waived by the Chargers on Monday, will provide the Giants with extra depth at linebacker, though his main responsibilities will come on special teams.

Darian Thompson
Thompson is now healthy and likely to start at safety across from Landon Collins this season, the Giants' official site reports.

Thompson was supposed to be the Giants' starting free safety last season, but a foot injury limited the rookie to only two contests. Now healthy, Thompson is looking to make 2017 a bounce-back campaign after spending last season studying the defense on the sideline. However, backup Andrew Adams was impressive during OTAs and could give Thompson a run for his money during training camp.

Ethan Cooper
No Updates
Jason Pierre-Paul
Pierre-Paul had one of the best games of his career Sunday night with eight tackles (seven solo) and three sacks in a 23-10 win over the Broncos.

Pierre-Paul is completely healthy and apparently unhampered by his damaged hand. He's an excellent IDP defensive lineman due to his ability to rack up tackles as well as sacks.

Brett Jones
Jones (hip) was listed as active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Jones makes his return to a reserve role Sunday.

Ed Eagan
Eagan signed a contract with the Giants on Tuesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Eagan is the third receiver to sign with the Giants in less than two days, with his addition corresponding with three of the team's top five wideouts (Odell Beckham, Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris) landing on injured reserve with season-ending injuries. Beyond Sterling Shepard -- who may be at risk of missing Sunday's game against the Broncos with an injury of his own -- the Giants' entire wideout corps is almost entirely unproven, so Eagan should have as good of an opportunity as the rest of the lot to establish himself as a dependable target for quarterback Eli Manning. Until Eagan, who was cut by the Giants in training camp, translates any offensive snaps he receives into meaningful production, he won't warrant much more than a speculative pickup in very deep fantasy formats.

Roger Lewis
Lewis caught one of his six targets for 12 yards Sunday against the Seahawks.

So much for the "Roger Lewis era." It was unfortunate timing that Lewis became the team's No. 1 wideout with the Broncos and Seahawks on the schedule, and with Sterling Shepard returning, Evan Engram having a massive role and the Giants being a weak passing offense, we wouldn't expect Lewis to be a significant factor going forward.

Andrew Adams
Adams was impressive during OTAs and could compete for the starting free safety position, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Safeties coach David Merritt said of the competition, "I'm going to be honest with you, you can sit here right now and say yes [it's Darian Thompson], but I can't sit here and take away from what Andrew Adams has done."

Adams notched 46 tackles, five passes defensed and one interception over 14 games last season as a replacement for Darian Thompson, who missed almost the entire year with a foot injury. However, with Thompson back to full health, it appears as if he is the favorite to claim the starting free safety role. While Adams is a dark horse, it's tough to rule out the 24-year-old completely, making this training camp battle quite intriguing.

Ishaq Williams
Williams was promoted from the Giants' practice squad to their active roster Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

Assuming he plays, the rookie will make his career debut in Sunday's game against the Eagles. Williams came into the league as a linebacker, but he will be playing defensive end for the foreseeable future. He figures to help provide depth at the position.

Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Ereck Flowers
No Updates
Brad Wing
No Updates
Robert Thomas
Thomas (soreness) played in Monday's game against the Browns.

He only played 68 snaps in 2016, but Thomas is competing for a larger role on the defensive front this season. Now that he's healthy, Thomas can try stealing snaps from fellow tackle Jay Bromley.

Evan Schwan
Foot - Injured Reserve
Adam Bisnowaty
No Updates
Davis Webb
Webb (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Webb, a rookie third-round pick out of California, has yet to make his NFL debut. So long as starter Eli Manning and top backup Geno Smith both remain healthy, Webb is unlikely to dress on game days.

Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 7 vs. Seattle
Eli Manning
Manning completed 19 of 39 passes for 134 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

Facing an elite defense and without his three primary pass-catching weapons, Manning was Captain Checkdown, resulting in a meager 3.4 YPA and only one pass play of more than 20 yards. He was only sacked once and wasn't intercepted, but the 36-year-old did lose a key fumble in the fourth quarter that led to a Seattle touchdown. A Week 8 bye and the return of Sterling Shepard from an ankle injury in Week 9 could help, but apart from rookie tight end Evan Engram, the outlook for this offense is dim.

Donte Deayon
No Updates
Adam Gettis
Gettis (foot) was placed on the Giants' injured reserve list Monday.

Gettis has spent the majority of the previous three seasons on the Giants practice squad. While he was competing for a spot on the final roster during training camp, his odds of doing so were believed to be slim. He will now spend the entire 2017 season on IR with a foot injury.

Foot - Injured Reserve
Uani' Unga
'Unga (undisclosed) was waived with an injury designation Wednesday, reports.

'Unga, a one-time starter for the Giants back in 2015, spent the entire season on injured reserve with an unknown injury. He'll need to get healthy in order to land another contract.

Undisclosed - Questionable for Week 9 vs. L.A. Rams
Dwayne Harris
Harris (foot) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Harris' placement on IR comes as no surprise after the receiver was ruled out for the season due to a fractured foot he sustained in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. Harris is set to undergo surgery Tuesday, with the expectation being that he'll be ready to go for the start of the 2018 campaign.

Foot - Injured Reserve
Weston Richburg
Richburg (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Richburg will miss his third consecutive week, and Brent Jones will continue snapping the ball for the Giants.

Concussion - Inactive for Week 7 vs. Seattle
Bobby Hart
Hart (ankle) was removed from the injury report ahead of Week 4, Jenna Laine of ESPN reports.

Hart missed Week 3 after hurting his ankle in Week 2. However, after fitting in limited practice sessions Thursday and Friday, he appears to be good to go moving forward.

Darius Powe
Powe was signed to the Giants' practice squad Monday, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Powe was waived off injured reserve by the Giants at the close of the preseason with a hamstring injury. If the 23-year-old ever joins the 53-man roster, he could potentially have a solid chance to contribute given the season-ending injuries sustained by three Giants receivers Sunday.

Jay Bromley
Bromley (knee) was able to fully participate in Wednesday's practice.

Bromley returned to practice Monday after suffering a sprained knee in the Giants third preseason contest. He has not suffered any setbacks, so it appears likely he will be able to play Sunday night against the Cowboys.

Travis Rudolph
Rudolph caught three of his six targets for 32 yards against the Seahawks Sunday.

He was actually the leading wideout on the team, but the former practice squad player is a long shot to have a major role on the sinking ship known as the Giants offense.

Wayne Gallman
Gallman had five carries for 15 yards and caught two of his three targets for 14 more yards against the Seahawks Sunday.

With Paul Perkins out, Gallman was the clear No. 2 to Orleans Darkwa. After the Week 8 bye, when the Giants presumably get Perkins back, it's unclear how the playing time will shake out. For now, this looks like a backfield situation with limited upside.

Corbin Bryant
Bryant (elbow) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, James Kratch of reports.

Bryant suffered his elbow injury on Monday, and the Giants immediately began working out replacements for the defensive tackle. Look for Bobby Richardson to see some extra reps now that Bryant has been shut down for the year.

Elbow - Injured Reserve
Tim Scott
Scott was waived by the Giants on Friday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Scott was trying to make it as a reserve safety behind Landon Collins and Darian Thompson. He'll be eligible to sign elsewhere if he clears waivers.

Nat Berhe
Berhe (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Berhe was limited in practice throughout the week and likely could've played Sunday if the Giants needed him. New York is locked into the five seed for the playoffs and didn't need to force Berhe back before he's completely healthy. He appears to have a good chance at returning from his five week absence in the wildcard round of the playoffs next week.

Marquis Bundy
Bundy was waived by the Giants on Saturday.

Bundy was initially brought onto the team to add depth to a banged up receiver corps. He caught seven passes for 103 yards this preseason, but the Giants picked Tavarres King (ankle) and Dwayne Harris (upper body) as their depth receivers instead. At 6-foot-4, 215 pounds, expect Bundy to be a prime candidate for the practice squad.

Jonathan Casillas
Casillas (neck) won't suit up for Sunday's matchup with the Seahawks, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Casillas will miss his second straight week with this injury after he left early in Week 5 against the Chargers. The fact that he didn't practice in any capacity this week doesn't bode well for his recovery, and Keenan Robinson will continue filling his vacancy.

Neck - Inactive for Week 7 vs. Seattle
Curtis Grant
No Updates
Keenan Robinson
Robinson (concussion) was a full participant at Giants practice Thursday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Robinson has finally cleared the league-mandated protocol after sustaining a concussion in early August. The 28-year-old will likely resume a role as a special teams contributor and backup to Jonathan Casillas.

Sterling Shepard
Shepard (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Seahawks.

Instead of suffering an unnecessary aggravation of his sprained left ankle, Shepard will remain sidelined for a second consecutive game with a Week 8 bye imminent. With Shepard on the pine, rookie tight end Evan Engram represents the most reliable receiver in the Giants offense, though Roger Lewis, Tavarres King and Shane Vereen should also get in on the act.

Ankle - Inactive for Week 7 vs. Seattle
Landon Collins
Collins (ankle) failed to log any tackles in Sunday's 23-10 win over the Broncos. He did have an interception, however.

Normally one of the team's top tacklers, Collins didn't record even an assist, and we have to imagine his ankle injury was a factor. Check back on his practice status this week, but when healthy, Collins is one of the elite IDPs at the safety spot.

Shane Vereen
Vereen had two carries for four yards and caught three of his four targets for two yards against the Seahawks Sunday.

It's been two straight games that Vereen, despite the team's dearth of receiving options, hasn't been a factor. You'd think with Eli Manning checking it down so much Vereen would have a bigger role, but so far that hasn't happened.

Kevin Norwood
Norwood (hip) cleared waivers and reverted to the Giants' injured reserve Tuesday, James Kratch of NJ Advance Media reports.

Norwood was not considered a likely candidate to make the final roster before sustaining the injury. He will remain on the team's IR for the remainder of the season unless the two parties reach an injury settlement.

Hip - Injured Reserve
Kalif Raymond
Raymond signed with the Giants' practice squad Tuesday.

The Giants are lacking depth in the receiving corps after adding Brandon Marshall (ankle), Odell Beckham (ankle) and Dwayne Harris (foot) to injured reserve this week. As a result, Ed Eagan was promoted to the Giants' active roster Tuesday, opening up a spot for Raymond on the practice squad. Should the Giants suffer any more injuries, the 23-year-old could find himself on the active roster as well.

Jessamen Dunker
Dunker (foot) reverted to injured reserve Thursday.

Dunker was waived with an injury designation Wednesday due to the foot injury he suffered in the opening days of training camp.

Foot - Injured Reserve
Mark Herzlich
Herzlich (neck) did not participate in Tuesday's practice.

After only playing 15 defensive snaps in 14 games last season, Herzlich has been battling for a share of the snaps with Devon Kennard. If he cannot prove himself, though, he'll likely return to being a specialist.

Neck - Injured Reserve
Olivier Vernon
Vernon (ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Vernon is set to miss his third consecutive game Sunday, denying him a decent opportunity to pad his sack total against a porous Seahawks offensive line. Expect Avery Moss and Kerry Wynn to continue sharing the defensive end spot opposite Jason Pierre-Paul until Vernon returns.

Ankle - Inactive for Week 7 vs. Seattle
Romeo Okwara
The Giants placed Okwara on injured reserve Tuesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Okwara sprained his knee in practice last week. It appears that his timetable for recovery is relatively long, as the team has opted to place him on the IR. He was played sparingly on defense, so his absence shouldn't affect the Giants' current production.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Devon Kennard
Kennard (concussion) was not on the Giants' Wednesday injury report.

Kennard was able to play Sunday against the Ravens after heading into the weekend considered questionable. It looks like he'll be ready to play Week 7 versus the Rams.

Tavarres King
King caught one of three passes for seven yards during Sunday's 23-10 victory in Denver.

King was re-signed to be in the pass-catching mix now that the Giants have three wideouts on injured reserve and Sterling Shepard is nursing an ankle injury. While he did very little against the Broncos, King could see more targets when the game flow is more favorable. Either way, he's a long shot to make a major impact.

Jerell Adams
Adams (shoulder) is listed as inactive Sunday in Washington

After landing on the Giants' injury report Thursday, Adams closed out the week with back-to-back limited sessions. The preceding wasn't exactly enough to forecast inactive status in Week 17, but the offense will nonetheless roll with Will Tye as the obvious No. 1 tight end. Due to the team's liberal use of TEs, though, Larry Donnell will likely earn some snaps as well Sunday.

Shane Smith
No Updates
Jon Halapio
The Giants will sign Halapio off their practice squad Wednesday, Dan Duggan of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Halapio will join the 53-man roster to provide some additional depth on the interior of the offensive line with Weston Richburg (concussion) at risk of missing Sunday's game against the Chargers. It's not expected that Halapio would be a candidate to start at center in that contest, as backup Brett Jones is the more likely player to enter the lineup in Richburg's stead if necessary. The 26-year-old Halapio, a sixth-round pick of the Patriots in 2014, has yet to make an NFL appearance.

Avery Moss
Moss (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

The rookie has been limited to just six special teams snaps through the Giants' first four games, but his availability isn't insignificant with starting defensive end Olivier Vernon (ankle) unavailable. Even so, Kerry Wynn is in line to start in Vernon's stead, so Moss is just expected to act as insurance along the defensive line and probably won't be in store for a significant workload.

Justin Pugh
Pugh is questionable to return to Sunday's game after suffering a back injury.

As long as Pugh remains out, expect Brett Jones to see increased snaps along the Giants' offensive line.

Back - Questionable for Week 9 vs. L.A. Rams
Rhett Ellison
Ellison is listed as the top tight end on the Giants' depth chart heading into the team's Week 1 matchup with the Cowboys, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Rookie first-round pick Evan Engram is the long-term heir to the starting role at the position and is likely to see more targets in Week 1. Ellison has made his greatest impact as a run and pass blocker throughout his career, hauling in no more than 19 receptions or one touchdown in any of his previous five seasons as a member of the Vikings.

D.J. Fluker
Fluker (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Fluker was just added to the injury report Saturday, but now that he's deemed healthy he'll be ready to step in if any injuries occur on the Giants' offensive front.

Aldrick Rosas
Rosas made three of four field goals, including a 51-yarder, in the Giants' 23-10 victory over the Broncos. The missed field-goal attempt was blocked.

Rosas is now 7-for-9 on the year and has made all 10 extra-point attempts. The rookie hasn't done anything to lose the job to this point.

Brandon Dixon
Buccaneers running backs Doug Martin (ankle) and Charles Sims (ankle) headline the Week 9 inactives for Sunday in Cleveland. Also injured and out are linebacker Brandon Magee (knee) and tackle Anthony Collins (foot).

The healthy scratches are cornerback Brandon Dixon and guard Kadeem Edwards.

Zak DeOssie
No Updates
B.J. Goodson
Goodson suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's game against the Seahawks and will not return.

Goodson is the Giants' starting middle linebacker and is an important piece of the team's run defense. Calvin Munson appears to be the main beneficiary of snaps as long as Goodson is out.

Ankle - Questionable for Week 9 vs. L.A. Rams
Calvin Munson
Quadriceps - Inactive for Week 7 vs. Seattle
No Updates
Brandon Marshall
Marshall said Saturday that he has no intention of retiring after the Giants placed him on injured reserve Tuesday after he required season-ending surgery to stabilize his left ankle, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. "I'm a competitor, and I don't want to go out like that," Marshall said. "I'm definitely not going out like that."

Though he'll turn 34 years old in March and faces a lengthy rehab from the surgery, Marshall's comments suggest he's already preparing for a 13th NFL season. He'll enter the final year of his contract with the Giants in 2018 and may need to prove he's healthy in training camp in order to avoid being cut by the team leading up to the season.

Ankle - Injured Reserve
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
Rodgers-Cromartie (suspension) will be reinstated when the team returns to practice Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of reports.

The Giants aren't practicing on Tuesday due to taking a pair of days off following their trip out west this weekend, but the cornerback should be on the practice field Wednesday. Expect Rodgers-Cromartie to be a full go in Sunday's game against the Seahawks.
