Update Sept. 17, 2017, 12:07 p.m.: Cornerback Richard Sherman (hamstring) is active for the Seahawks’ home opener against the 49ers. After missing two practices for rest, Sherman practiced fully Friday and was earlier listed as “questionable.”

Linebacker K.J. Wright was also not on the Seahawks’ list of inactives.

An earlier version of this story is below.

Richard Sherman is listed as questionable with a hamstring injury for the Seahawks’ home opener against the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, but head coach Pete Carroll said the All-Pro cornerback practiced fully Friday.

“We did well today,” Carroll said. “He looks like he can play.”

Talking to the media Friday, Carroll implied Sherman — who missed several days to rest — might be a game-time decision. Sherman sustained the injury in Seattle’s loss to Green Bay in Week 1.

“His attitude about being injured and whether he can play or not is so far off the charts courageous, and determined, committed, he just won’t accept it,” Carroll said. “There’s always been people that heal better than others, and we’ll see how this works out, but you couldn’t ask for a guy’s attitude to be more on point.”

Sherman hasn’t missed a start in his six-year career with the Seahawks.

Seattle is otherwise healthy going into the weekend. Linebacker Terence Garvin (shoulder) is the only player listed as doubtful.

“(Garvin is) a little further away… we’ll see,” Carroll said. Carroll indicated linebacker Michael Wilhoite, who is returning from a calf injury this week, will likely fill that spot.

After missing most of the preseason and Week 1, running back Thomas Rawls (ankle) is expected to return. Cornerback Shaquill Griffin (concussion) also practiced fully Thursday and Friday, and linebacker K.J. Wright (ankle) “is fine,” said Carroll.

After losing to the Packers 17-9 on the road last week, the Seahawks will be able to play in front of their fans at the notoriously raucous CenturyLink Field Sunday.

“We’re really looking forward to coming home,” Carroll said.

Likewise, the 49ers are expected to have most of their squad, with safety Jimmie Ward (hamstring) listed as questionable and linebacker Reuben Foster (ankle) out.
