Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane was the only player who did not practice Thursday, listed on the practice report with a knee injury. Lane, who filled in for starter Brandon Browner during his four-game suspension, was a full participant on Wednesday.

Browner returned this week and seems to be adjusting to the speed of the game.

Defensive coordinator Gus Bradley spoke to the media after practice and said Browner appeared to be in pretty good shape.

“I think it always take a little bit of time to get back into it – the one-on-ones, the coverage concepts and things like that,” Bradley said. “He’s taken extra reps to get back on it.”

Not allowed at the facility for over a month, Browner continued to work out on his own in California during his suspension and expects to be ready come game day.

“He’s worked out real hard, his weight’s in good shape, he feels fast and all that,” coach Pete Carroll said Monday. “He’ll have fresh legs, relative to other guys here, 16 games into it. We’ll see how he does.”

But Carroll was quick to add that if Browner is not ready to go, he won’t hesitate to start another player.

“Fortunately, we have guys who can play,” Carroll said. “If he’s not quite right or if he doesn’t get off to a good start during the week, we’ve got other guys who can play for him. But we’re going to give him a heck of a chance to play. We’re thrilled to get him back and we’ll see what happens.”

Running back Marshawn Lynch (back) was a full participant on Thursday.

For the Redskins, linebacker London Fletcher returned to practice after sitting out Wednesday with an ankle injury.

Starting quarterback Robert Griffin III is still listed on the practice report with a knee injury but is expected to start on Sunday.
