49ers left tackle Joe Staley was able to participate in practice, according to CSNBayArea.com.

Staley suffered a sprained MCL against the Rams this past Sunday and there was some initial fear that he would be unable to go against the Seahawks this week.

Staley's presence at practice doesn't mean he'll play against San Francisco's rival. But it's certainly a good sign.
