Pete Carroll had another positive report on cornerback DeShawn Shead, who resumed practicing last week. Shead has been on the physically unable to perform list while recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL. Said Carroll: "He's done well. He's put in two weeks of work. The tempo during these latter weeks in the season aren't such that he gets tested every day, but he's been working every day and he's out there practicing with us, so he's going full-go. So we'll see. Next week we'll make an evaluation of where he is." Players returning from PUP have to be activated within 21 days of when they begin practicing or they're ineligible to play for the remainder of the season.

Here's the Seahawks' final injury report with Friday's practice participation included. K.J. Wright not practicing in any capacity this week makes it very difficult to imagine him playing Sunday. He's in the concussion protocol, which requires players to gradually return to practice before they're cleared to play.

Right tackle Germain Ifedi was among several Seahawks fined from Sunday's loss to Jacksonville. His fine -- $24,309, according to a source -- stems from an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the first half as opposed to the scuffles at the end of the game. Ifedi was flagged and fined for what the league called verbal abuse of a game official. Ifedi said he has "no idea" what he said to trigger the discipline and that he didn't get an explanation on the field. "I don't know," Ifedi said. "I can't speak on it. I have to see what it's all about. Right now, no comment."
