The Seattle Seahawks suffered a tough loss against the Carolina Panthers this past weekend and now Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch and Jimmy Graham are looking for a rebound against the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday. The Seahawks have brought back Derrick Coleman from suspension and Doug Baldwin is a solid fantasy option for Week 7.

The Seahawks dealt with some off the field news on Tuesday, as running back Fred Jackson was reportedly in a car accident. According to Pro Football Talk, initial reports from TMZ had the car accident coming in a drag race between Jackson and Marshawn Lynch, but CBS Sports later reported that the drag race was just a car accident. Pro Football Talk reports that the accident happened at around 5 pm ET and came after Jackson was going too fast around a tight turn and hit a stop sign. PFT reports that a team source said that Jackson was "uninjured."

The Seahawks have struggled this season and the team is just 2-4 going into the game on Thursday against San Francisco. The defense gave up a late touchdown against the Panthers that helped Carolina win the game and now Seattle has to find a way to rebound. Wilson said to the media after the game that the team is confident in their ability and that they feel they have time to turn things around.

Wilson comes in after throwing for 239 yards and one touchdown against the Panthers and this season he has seven touchdowns and three interceptions. Lynch had 54 yards rushing in his first game back since missing time with a hamstring injury and he made it into the endzone for the first time this season. Lynch is looking to get things going and he has 182 yards through four games, which puts him on pace for his lowest total since coming to Seattle.

The team also announced that the suspension for Derrick Coleman has ended and that comes after Coleman was charged with a hit and run last week. According to the Seattle Times, Coleman was moved off of the reserve/suspended list and Pete Carroll said that the team has spoken with Coleman and reviewed video of Coleman meeting with the police about the situation. Carroll said that based on the information, the team feels "like we are doing the right thing right now."

Pro Football Talk has reported on some other personnel moves from Seattle, including that the team has signed back Lemuel Jeanpierre, waived Crezdon Butler and put Brock Coyle on injured reserve with the designation to return. PFT speculates that the return of Jeanpierre could mean that Patrick Lewis may not be able to start on Thursday against the 49ers after being injured against the Carolina Panthers in the loss on Sunday. Head coach Pete Carroll said the team will "see how he does" as the team practices this week and if he will be able to play.
