Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, tight end Jimmy Graham and right guard Germain Ifedi are all expected to start Sunday against the New York Jets, coach Pete Carroll said.

Wilson suffered a sprained MCL in his left knee in Week 3, but he was not on Friday's injury report.

"He made it through and had his best week since the first week before he tweaked his ankle [in Week 1]," Carroll said Friday. "He looked really good."

Graham had six catches for 100 yards and a touchdown last week in a win over San Francisco, but he suffered back spasms Thursday and is listed as questionable. Carroll said Graham will not be limited at all against the Jets.

"He's had a great return," Carroll said. "He's really game-ready to go now. He's had enough plays and games and enough action where there's no restriction on him in any way."

Graham did not participate in Thursday's practice but was a full participant Friday.

Ifedi, the team's first-round pick, has been sidelined with a high ankle sprain suffered before Week 1. He will make his debut and replace J'Marcus Webb at right guard.
