Thomas limited for Seattle, Sherman practices full all week

RENTON, Wash. (AP) All-Pro safety Earl Thomas returned to limited duty in practice for the Seattle Seahawks while cornerback Richard Sherman was a full participant all week.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Friday that if the Seahawks had to play this Sunday both players would be able to go. With having another week to go, Carroll expects both to be fully ready for the Super Bowl.

Thomas suffered a separated shoulder in the NFC title game, while Sherman sprained his elbow in the fourth quarter. Both played with the injuries against Green Bay.

Guard J.R. Sweezy sat out practice this week, but Carroll said that was to rest his ankles and he should be fine.

Starting right tackle Justin Britt (knee) and backup safety Jeron Johnson (elbow) both returned to practice and should be ready for the game.
