Both starting running backs for the Super Bowl XLVIII teams are dealing with injuries. Seahawks tailback Marshawn Lynch hasn’t practiced this week with a knee injury, and Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno is limited with injured ribs.
Moreno, who would have been limited on Wednesday if the Broncos had practiced, was limited on Thursday during the team’s first official pre-Super Bowl practice.
Defensive tackle Mitch Unrein (knee) didn’t practice, and kicker Matt Prater missed Thursday’s session with an illness.
Defensive lineman Sione Fua was a new addition to the report with a calf injury; he practiced on a limited basis.
Injured players who fully participated in practice on Thursday were quarterback Peyton Manning (ankle), guard Chris Kuper (ankle), cornerback Tony Carter (shoulder), cornerback Kayvon Webster (thumb), tight end Joel Dreessen (knee), and defensive tackle Terrance Knighton (knee).
