Center Chris Spencer returned to practice on Wednesday after missing four days because of a twisted ankle suffered Friday. “I’m lucky and blessed to be able to get out here so fast,” Spencer said. The injury was serious enough for Spencer to be carted off the field, and it appeared another tough twist for a player who was recovering from shoulder surgery in 2007 and played through a back injury for most of last season until it worsened to the point he went on injured reserve.

Linebacking corps restored

Lofa Tatupu returned to practice on Wednesday after sitting out Sunday and Tuesday with general soreness. Tatupu returns as rookie Aaron Curry has moved to the first-string defense, giving the Seahawks a formidable — and expensive — trio with Tatupu, Curry and Leroy Hill.

It’s not easy being green

T.J. Houshmandzadeh spent eight years wearing Bengals orange, so he knows a thing or two about facing fluorescent challenges. That could come in handy since it’s still possible the Seahawks will wear a bright green alternative jersey at some point. “I haven’t really seen a [green] jersey,” Houshmandzadeh said, “but if you got style, then you can rock anything. I think I got style, so I’m going to be just fine.”

Hurts not so good

Two weeks and still no day off for the Seahawks, who will work out today, and travel to San Diego on Friday for Saturday’s exhibition game. Seattle’s players will be off Sunday. “This is like camp grind ‘em out here,” Houshmandzadeh said. “It will be fun to go against somebody else after going against each other for two weeks.”
