Thursday practice report: Giacomini again sits it out; Bryant, Kearse participate fully

The Seahawks are off the field following their Thursday practice, and the big news is that right tackle Breno Giacomini again sat out with a knee injury.

Also sitting out were safety Jeron Johnson and running back Spencer Ware, the latter of whom has already been ruled out.

That Giacomini sat out for a second straight day would seem to increase the possibility that he won’t be able to play Sunday against the Houston Texans, which would mean the Seahawks would have to figure out a way to contain reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt without either of their starting tackles (left tackle Russell Okung is out at least seven more weeks with a toe injury).

There was better news on other injury fronts as DT Jordan Hill and center Max Unger were each listed as participating on a limited basis (Unger did not participate on Wednesday with an arm issue), while everyone else was listed as fully participating in practice.

That includes DT Red Bryant, who sat out Wednesday with back spasms, Marshawn Lynch, who was out Wednesday for non-injury related reasons and WR Jermaine Kearse, who sat out Wednesday with an ankle injury suffered against Jacksonville but appears on the fast track to returning.

Also fully participating today who had previously been on the injured list this week were DT Michael Bennett.
