Seattle looks as healthy as ever as it prepares for Sunday's big game.

The Seattle Seahawks returned to practice on Wednesday, and every player was a full participant with the exception of Marshawn Lynch. There is no injury concern for Lynch, who has regularly sat out Wednesday practices this season. It has already been confirmed that wide receiver Percy Harvin is a full participant and will play in the Super Bowl; just his third appearance with Seattle.

The Seahawks had some injury concerns during the regular season, which included placing left tackle Russell Okung on injured reserve with the designated to return tag, outside linebacker KJ Wright breaking a bone in his foot in December and returning in the NFC Championship, and Harvin, who has missed virtually every snap this year. Other Seattle players to miss games due to injury this year include Pro Bowl center Max Unger, right tackle Breno Giacomini, tight end Zach Miller, middle linebacker Bobby Wagner, and defensive ends Cliff Avril and Chris Clemons.

Wide receiver Sidney Rice was placed on injured reserve with a torn ACL after eight games, but had lost much of his playing time to Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse.

That means that Seattle is basically as healthy as it could have ever hoped for as it heads into its second Super Bowl appearance in franchise history. This coming despite the fact that the Seahawks opened the year by placing tight end Anthony McCoy on injured reserve and were waiting for the returns of Miller and Clemons, both of whom suffered major injuries in the playoffs last season. Additionally, linebacker Bruce Irvin was suspended for the first four games of the season, leaving the Seahawks rather short-handed to open the year. They still opened the year 4-0 for the first time in franchise history.

They will face off against the Denver Broncos with every player they expected to have going into the playoffs, with the added bonus of getting Harvin back.
