Cornerback Byron Maxwell (hamstring) was the only Seahawk who did not participate in practice on Thursday.

Coach Pete Carroll said his team is relatively healthy heading into its Monday night game against Green Bay.

Both left tackle Russell Okung (knee) and wide receiver Charly Martin (chest) returned to practice and were full participants.

Okung is expected to continue to practice this week and should be available to start on Monday. Okung was inactive against the Cowboys with a knee bruise. Frank Omiyale started in his place. Martin missed the game due to the bruised lung he sustained in Week 1 against Arizona.

Tight end Zach Miller (foot), running back Marshawn Lynch (back) and wide receiver Doug Baldwin (shoulder) were all limited on Thursday.

Carroll said the team plans to manage Miller this week but hopes that he’ll be ready by Monday night.

“We’ll take care of Zach during the week, but he should be okay if he makes it through,” Carroll said. “He looked good and felt pretty good today. We’ll monitor his work, but he should be fine.”

Lynch and Baldwin, while limited, are both expected to play this Monday night.
