RENTON – Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls is listed as limited on Wednesday’s practice report due to a previously undisclosed issue with his knee.

Rawls combined for 255 yards yards rushing and receiving and two touchdowns on 33 touches Sunday against San Francisco. Coach Pete Carroll didn’t mention any issue with Rawls after the game or this week, though he usually doesn’t volunteer injury information.

This shouldn’t be a cause for major concern at this point. In NFL practice-report parlance, limited participation is defined as when a player takes any less than 100 percent of his usual repetitions, so it’s not necessarily indicative of a significant injury. Rawls’ status nonetheless bears watching throughout the rest of the week, especially with Marshawn Lynch expected to miss about a month following abdominal surgery.

Center Patrick Lewis was a full participant in practice Wednesday. Carroll said he’s fine after injuring his ankle against San Francisco.

Five Seahawks did not practice Wednesday, including right tackle Garry Gilliam (ankle) and right guard J.R. Sweezy (shoulder). Sweezy’s injury could be related to the stinger he sustained in Sunday’s game; Carroll said he should be fine.

The other Seahawks who didn’t practice Wednesday were linebacker Bruce Irvin (knee), wide receiver Paul Richardson (hamstring) and wide receiver Doug Baldwin (ankle). Carroll said Irvin and Richardson will have a hard time returning this week from their injuries but that Baldwin is expected to play Sunday. He previously said Baldwin likely wouldn’t be able to practice until Thursday or Friday after injuring his ankle against San Francisco.
