Coach Jim Mora said he expects running back Justin Forsett's role to expand Sunday against the Houston Texans.
"Are we going to see more of Justin?" Mora asked. "The answer is yes, absolutely. He's not limited. He had a good week of practice, and he didn't have any setbacks. And we like the things that he has been doing. And we want to increase his role."
Forsett rushed for more than 120 yards in two of Seattle's last three games in November, but he suffered a strained quadriceps in practice two days before Seattle played San Francisco. That injury partly explained why he carried only five times (for 9 yards) against the 49ers. He did catch a 8-yard touchdown pass, though, scoring for the fifth time in four games.
