RENTON – Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is practicing Wednesday, but coach Pete Carroll emphasized that his status remains day-to-day.

Carroll said as much following Sunday’s game, which was the eighth straight that Lynch has missed. Carroll repeated it on Monday and again on Wednesday, even stopping himself in the middle of a response to make it clear.

“Yes, he’s going,” Carroll said when asked if Lynch will practice Wednesday. “I think he’s – we’re going to go day-to-day, day-to-day is how we’ll do this and we’ll evaluate the next day and see how it goes – but I can feel that he’s encouraged to go for it again. We’ll see if we can get it done.”

Lynch was a full participant in practice all three days last week and appeared to be on track to play Sunday for the first time since undergoing abdominal surgery on Nov. 25. That he still determined on Friday afternoon, after practicing without limitation for the third straight day, that he wasn’t able to play Sunday could be a reason why Carroll is assuming nothing and offering no assurances about his availability this week.

Carroll was asked if Lynch might be ahead in his recovery from where he was at this time last week considering he didn’t play Sunday.

“We’ll see,” Carroll said. “I don’t know how to tell you that. We haven’t practiced yet. I can’t tell.”

Tight end Luke Willson is practicing Wednesday as well, Carroll said. Willson has missed Seattle’s last two games because of a concussion he sustained in Week 16 against St. Louis.

Fullback Will Tukuafu is Seattle’s only other injury-related question mark. He isn’t practicing Wednesday due to a hamstring injury he sustained Sunday.
