The Seattle Seahawks will be getting reinforcements back as a half-zone players are expected to return to practice this week.

Coach Pete Carroll on Monday said four defensive players – linemen Jordan Hill and Demarcus Dobbs, linebacker Nick Moody and cornerback Marcus Burley – are among the six players who should practice later in the week.

Also returning will be starting center Patrick Lewis and fullback Derrick Coleman, who suffered a concussion in a car accident that sidelined him for last week's game.

Rookie running back Thomas Rawls, who twice rushed for more than 100 yards while replacing an injured Marshawn Lynch, suffered a calf contusion against the San Francisco 49ers on Oct. 22. Carroll said the team will have a clearer idea of his availability on Thursday.

Carroll does not expect cornerback Jeremy Lane to return to practice until after the team's bye week. Lane is still rehabbing from a knee injury suffered in the Super Bowl loss to New England.
