Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson is once again going to be a game-time decision on Sunday, although he is listed as probable to play on Friday’s injury report.

“He’s barely making it through practice, but he did. He did make it through,” head coach Pete Carroll said after Friday’s walk-through.

Jackson has yet to return to full health since the pectoral injury he sustained before the bye week.

“If he’s ready to play then he’s playing,” Carroll replied when asked if Jackson would start the game. “We know now kind of what to expect more so, but he’s got to come back from this. He practiced Wednesday and couldn’t practice on Thursday, he threw a little bit today and so we need to see what happens by Sunday. I don’t know until we get there.”

Jackson was a full participant in practice on Wednesday, but was limited again on Thursday. Carroll had named Jackson the starter on Monday after he appeared to have played through last week’s game without further injury.

“We’re going to keep our fingers crossed because we’d love to have him going, he’d love to play,” Carroll said. “If it’s even close he’s going to tell me he can, so we’ve just got to evaluate it as we go. We’ll watch him throw in pregame and make sure he’s right.”

Wide receivers Sidney Rice (foot) and Mike Williams (hamstring) have both been cleared to play on Sunday and are listed as probable on the injury report. Williams had been limited all week in practice since he was sidelined last Sunday as a last-minute inactive prior to kickoff.

Rice had sat out practice on Thursday with a sore foot, but should be a full go in Dallas. “Sidney is fine,” Carroll said. “He practiced all day today. He needed a little break yesterday, so we did that and he came back and practiced the whole time today.”

Defensive tackle Alan Branch (hip/knee), linebacker David Vobora (calf) and tight end Cameron Morrah (toe/knee) did not participate in practice on Friday and are listed as questionable to play on Sunday. Carroll said all three will be game-time decisions.

Below is the official injury report for Friday.
