Josh Wilson will work more with the first-unit defense this week in practice in place of Kelly Jennings, one of the personnel changes coach Mike Holmgren intimated might be coming this week.
"You'll see Josh playing some at the corner position," Holmgren said. "That's one of the things we've maneuvered just a little bit more."
Wilson, a second-round pick in 2007, began the season as Seattle's nickelback. He could start at right cornerback in place of Jennings, who suffered a broken rib in the second game of the season and then a concussion after he was on the field for seven plays.
Jennings could still play in nickel packages. At that point he would play right cornerback and Wilson would move to defend an interior receiver.
