EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Marshawn Lynch returned to being a full participant in practice on Thursday as the Seattle Seahawks had their second workout of Super Bowl week.

Lynch was given Wednesday off as has been his typical regimen for most of the season. He was a full participant on Thursday as the Seahawks were as healthy as they have been all season just a few days before facing Denver.

Percy Harvin, Doug Baldwin and Brandon Mebane were all full participants as well.

Seattle took the field around 4:30 p.m. and went for 90 minutes at the New York Giants' indoor practice facility. The Seahawks again opened the doors of the building to let cold air in and try and simulate the expected temperatures on Sunday night at MetLife Stadium.

''Everybody is fine. No issues at all,'' Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. ''It's fantastic to have everybody going, knowing that everybody is healthy. Of course they're excited about that, too. We're very fortunate in that sense.''

While it was ''Turnover Thursday'' in the Seahawks practice plans it was also a significant day to work on third downs, Carroll said. The only turnover of the day came from defensive back DeShawn Shead during a 7-on-7 drill.

''Today, we're finishing up the game plan,'' Carroll said. ''Our third-down stuff today was a big deal. But the whole day is really dedicated to the ball; it's a turnover day for us. So we're working on that all day long.''

Seattle bused over from its Jersey City hotel to the practice facility shortly after 11:30 a.m. The team had meetings, a walkthrough and lunch before taking the practice field.

''The guys are really excited about the game,'' Carroll said. ''They're practicing with great focus and attention to the details. And so we go to Friday and try to put together a really good day on Friday, finish really sharp, and head into the weekend. We're ready to go.''
