Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (probable, knee) participated in Saturday's walkthrough.

Coach Pete Carroll said Chancellor "looked great." Chancellor is reportedly dealing with a bruised knee after leaving late in Friday's practice. He hasn't had any setbacks and remains on track for the Super Bowl.

Profootballtalk reports the Falcons plan to name Seahawks DC Dan Quinn head coach on Tuesday.

The Falcons have been linked to Quinn for weeks, but NFL rules prevent him from taking the job until Seattle's season ends. Kyle Shanahan has already been hired to run Quinn's offense, with Richard Smith and Raheem Morris expected to help coordinate the defense. Quinn will bring Seattle's highly-successful Cover-3 scheme to Atlanta. The Seahawks have led the league in total defense under Quinn the last two years.

Bleacher Report's Will Carroll reports the injury that forced Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (probable) from Friday's practice was just a bruise.

Chancellor fell directly on the knee late in practice, but he was able to walk off the field without a limp. His status for the Super Bowl is not in doubt.
Jan 31 - 1:26 PM

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor exited Friday's practice with a wrap on his left knee.

This is why he was added to the injury report and listed as probable. Per Super Bowl pool reporter Peter King, Chancellor missed the final rep of practice after falling near the goal line on the second to last play. The probable listing indicates the Seahawks aren't worried about Chancellor's availability for Sunday's matchup with Rob Gronkowski.

Kam Chancellor (knee) is listed as probable for Super Bowl XLIX.

Chancellor was added to the injury report Friday after getting in a limited practice. He's fully expected to play through his knee issue. Seattle also listed Richard Sherman (elbow) and Earl Thomas (shoulder) as probable.

Richard Sherman (elbow) is listed as probable for Super Bowl XLIX.

Sherman is reportedly dealing with torn ligaments in his elbow, but didn't miss any practice time. His Super Bowl status was never in doubt. Earl Thomas (shoulder) is also listed as probable.

Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (shoulder) is practicing in full for Super Bowl XLIX.

Thomas' status was never in doubt, but this confirms he'll be ready to rock against the Patriots.
Jan 29 - 9:40 PM

Seahawks RT Justin Britt (knee) is practicing in full for Super Bowl XLIX.

Britt sat out the NFC Championship Game, but coach Pete Carroll said it was precautionary. A second-round rookie, Britt struggled mightily during the regular season, but played every snap.

ESPN's Mike Triplett suggests the Saints could be interested in impending free agent CB Byron Maxwell.

Triplett is just connecting the dots. He's not reporting he's heard the Saints are ready to make a run at Seattle's right cornerback. Rotoworld's No. 1 free agent corner, Maxwell did excellent work opposite Richard Sherman this season, and gets a chance to shine on the national stage Sunday. Corner is a major need for the Saints, but their cap situation is one of the league's worst. If Maxwell escapes Seattle, New Orleans is an unlikely landing spot.

The Seahawks have opened extension talks with RCB Byron Maxwell.

An impending free agent, re-signing Maxwell is one of GM John Schneider's top priorities. He's been a major part of Seattle's defense the last two years since taking over for Brandon Browner, and would draw interest from multiple teams on the open market. Maxwell is Rotoworld's No. 1 free-agent corner.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports Richard Sherman has torn ligaments in his elbow.

It's the first we've heard of any torn ligaments, but Sherman has continually insisted it's not an issue. Sherman has been practicing in full ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl. Per Werder, Sherman is "improving daily," and "finished with treatment." It's possible we'll learn that Sherman is dealing with a more serious injury than he's letting on following SB XLIX.

Seahawks DT Brandon Mebane (hamstring surgery) expects to be "full go" by April.

Mebane tore his hamstring in early November, and required surgery. Now 30, Mebane is due $5.5 million in 2015. That's a steep price for a rotational run plugger who just missed half a season, though Mebane was among the league's better defensive tackles in 2013.

Seahawks DT Kevin Williams is expected to again consider retirement this offseason.

Williams nearly hung it up last offseason before the Seahawks came calling with a one-year, $2.1 million deal in June. Going on 35, Williams played 445 snaps during the regular season, plugging the run for the NFC Champions.

The Seahawks will be penalized 15 yards if Marshawn Lynch makes an obscene gesture during Sunday's Super Bowl.

Lynch has been fined a total of $31,050 for grabbing his crotch following touchdown runs this season. But he hasn't been penalized yet because the officials allegedly didn't see it. We can be certain that if he does it Sunday he'll get flagged as this story has gone national -- which is why coach Pete Carroll said he will speak to Beast Mode about the grab. According to offshore sportsbook Bovada, Lynch is an incredible -200 favorite to score a touchdown against the Patriots.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said FS Earl Thomas (shoulder) will play in the Super Bowl after getting in a limited practice on Friday.

"That’s a big statement that Earl is going to be fine for next week," Carroll said. "He’ll be fine by game time." Thomas played through the injury in the NFC Championship Game, and there was zero chance he would miss the Super Bowl. Richard Sherman (elbow) is also expected to play.
