Sherman on facing Roddy White: ‘What challenge?’

RENTON – Is Richard Sherman still mad at Roddy White?

“Not really,” Sherman said. “It will be a fun game for us, I guarantee you that.”

Hmmm, that’s not very fun.

Not like this offseason when the two were trading barbs on the NFL Network. Sherman said that White’s strengths were a product of Atlanta’s system while White responded that Sherman talked his way to being an All-Pro.

Well, White hasn’t played the past three games, but said he is hoping to be available on Sunday, and Sherman was asked about the challenge of facing White.

“What challenge?” Sherman asked.

That’s more like it. Sherman was also asked whether there’s extra motivation drawn from what happened in last year’s playoff loss.

“No,” Sherman said, “We’re an 8-1 ballclub, they’re a 2-6 ballclub. Facts.”

Notes

• DE Red Bryant and C Max Unger did not practice Thursday, each recovering from a concussion. If Bryant isn’t able to play, defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said Michael Bennett or perhaps Tony McDaniel – a starting tackle – would move to that position.

“It’s another one of those times you’re glad you have some guys with versatility,” Quinn said.

• Rookie DT Jordan Hill has not practiced yet this week because of an injured biceps, the same injury that sidelined him for the first month of the season.

• RB Marshawn Lynch practiced without limitation Thursday after he was limited Wednesday, part of his weekly maintenance. DE Chris Clemons also returned to practice after watching Wednesday’s workout, a decision that was not injury related, according to the team.

• FB Derrick Coleman (hamstring) sat out practice and is not expected to play this week.
