RENTON, Wash. -- Walter Jones could play Sunday for the Seahawks at San Francisco, one month to the day after knee surgery.

Seattle's nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle had his most extensive practice on Friday since his second knee surgery in eight months. The 35-year-old did some team drills and is listed as questionable.

Coach Jim Mora said Jones has progressed more than expected. He's waiting for Jones to say he's ready, but Mora cautioned "we can't be greedy" and play the star too soon.

Top wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh practiced for the first time this week following back spasms. He is listed as probable and says he will start.

Deion Branch is less likely to play. He missed another day with a strained hamstring.
