Flock of Seahawks wideouts probable for Falcons showdown

The Seattle Seahawks' receiving trio of Mike Williams (ankle), Ben Obomanu (hand) and Brandon Stokley (hamstring) are all listed as probable for Sunday's NFC showdown with the Atlanta Falcons, coach Pete Carroll told reporters Friday.

Williams and Obomanu returned to practice Wednesday after both missed last Sunday's 41-20 loss to the San Francisco 49ers with injuries.

Williams had a left ankle sprain that piggybacked on a left foot strain that caused him to miss a Nov. 28 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Obomanu suffered a severe hand laceration during a Dec. 5 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Stokley was ruled out with a hamstring injury during the fourth quarter of the 49ers game.

Williams has clearly become the favorite target of quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, and the Seahawks' offense has struggled without the receiver in the lineup. Obomanu has developed into another favorite of Hasselbeck's.
