Here is the final injury report going into Sunday's game in Toronto:

According to the report, Rice practiced in full a couple days after being in a walking boot and is expected to play, according to coach Pete Carroll. Chancellor and Bryant also took their normal reps in practice, and Lynch was limited (you might have noticed "foot" was added to his ailments).

Carroll told reporters Friday that receiver Charly Martin will be going on injured reserve with a calf injury. No corresponding move has been announced, but Seattle does have some receivers on the practice squad.

Expect cornerbacks Byron Maxwell and Jeremy Lane to see extended time Sunday with the injuries to Thurmond and Trufant.

Regarding one midweek competition, Carroll said Leroy Hill will start at linebacker over Malcolm Smith.

UPDATE 2:30 p.m. -- I've added some team-provided quotes from Carroll after the jump...

* * *

(On Sidney Rice...) "Sidney did fine today and made it through practice. He will play Sunday."

(On Walter Thurmond...) "He's not going to make. Byron Maxwell and Jeremy Lane will both rotate time at that spot."

(On Leroy Hill and Malcolm Smith competition...) "Both of those guys will play, Leroy is going to start, but they'll both play in the game. The competition will continue there."

(On Red Bryant and Kam Chancellor...) "Red did well, and Kam also did well today. They both are ready to go."

(On Charly Martin...) "Charly has been placed on IR. He pulled his calf badly yesterday and will not be able to go."

(On Sidney Rice's foot...) "He's fine. He ran full speed today, I mean he has a sore foot, but he's fine. I don't think that there is any issue with that at all."

(On if he was surprised by Walter Thurmond's injury...) "He was fine after the game, he wasn't hurt, he got hurt just chasing out route down here in practice. He didn't hit it or anything; he just took a step and fired up his hamstring."

(On Marcus Trufant...) "He's getting better, he's getting close. We tried him some today and he's not able to get back in time."
