The Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons are nearly at complete full strength entering Saturday's NFC divisional playoff game at Atlanta.

Seahawks running back C.J. Prosise is the only player for either team in danger of sitting out. Prosise (shoulder) is listed as questionable and is a game-day decision.

Prosise was a full participant in Thursday's practice, the team's last major one of the week before conducting a walkthrough on Friday. The practice workload was viewed as an encouraging sign for Prosise, who suffered a broken shoulder blade on Nov. 20 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

"He's regaining his confidence and kinda getting going again," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said of Prosise. "It's been a while, seven weeks or something like that, so he took a lot of turns (Wednesday and Thursday). So he's getting back. Not sure how we're going to do that. We'll check him after the whole week's work and see how it goes and then all the way to game day."

Prosise carried 30 times for 176 yards in the regular season. Thomas Rawls is slated to be Seattle's main back against the Falcons.

There weren't any other players listed on Friday's injury report.

Seattle fullback Marcel Reese (foot) and defensive tackle Tony McDaniel (concussion) were listed earlier in the week but are now recovered.

The Seahawks went 10-5-1 in the regular season and defeated the Detroit Lions in last week's wild-card round.

The Falcons (11-5) are coming off a bye, which helped standout receiver Julio Jones get rest to further heal a nagging toe injury.

Rookie tight end Austin Hooper (knee) also will be available after missing the previous two games.
