Sean Payton said on Thursday before the team left for Seattle at 6 p.m. that Marques Colston, Jeremy Shockey, David Thomas, Alex Brown and Anthony Waters practiced "full" on Thursday. Anthony Hargrove, Jimmy Graham, Malcolm Jenkins and Danny Clark did not practice.

 All the injured players made the trip to Seattle and could play.

"Both David and Jeremy perked well and the news on Jimmy (Graham) has been good," said Payton. "He's feeling better than earlier in the week where there  was a lot of doubt. But you just pay attention to the treatment schedules and make sure as best you can that the players are off of their feet and doing all the things they need to do in the rehab process and get ready to go."

Payton said he got good news on Jenkins' knee injury. "They key is paying attention to the swelling, but he's going well; he's doing very well," said Payton.
