Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham returned to practice Thursday while running back Thomas Rawls was listed as a full participant for the second straight day. Those were the most notable items on what is again a fairly short injury report, indicative of how the Seahawks are as healthy entering Sunday’s game against Philadelphia as they’ve been in a while.

Graham didn’t practice Wednesday, which has become a somewhat regular occurrence in order to manage the knee he seriously injured last season.

Coach Pete Carroll said Rawls is on track to play Sunday for the first time since cracking a bone in his fibula in Week 2 so long as he makes it through the week of practice without issue. He’s done that so far with consecutive days of full participation.

Free safety Earl Thomas didn’t practice Thursday. His absence was listed as not injury related, so his status for Sunday doesn’t seem to be in any danger.

Also not practicing Thursday were defensive end Michael Bennett and linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis. Carroll has said neither will play Sunday. Pierre-Louis hurt his hamstring Sunday night and Bennett is at least another week away from returning following arthroscopic knee surgery.

Tight end Luke Willson is coming back this week from arthroscopic knee surgery of his own, Carroll said. Willson was a full participant the last two days as was offensive tackle Bradley Sowell, who’s on track to return this week as well from a knee injury.

Did not participate

• DE Michael Bennett (knee)
• LB Kevin Pierre-Louis (hamstring)
• FS Earl Thomas (not injury-related)

Full participation

• RB Thomas Rawls (fibula)
• OT Bradley Sowell (knee)
• TE Luke Willson (knee)
• QB Russell Wilson (knee)
• TE Jimmy Graham (knee)
