RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- Edgerrin James is not practicing yet with the Seahawks. Neither is T.J. Duckett.
Seattle practiced Tuesday morning without James, the league's active leading rusher who reportedly has an agreement on a new contract with the team.
James was not at team headquarters or in the Seattle area through Monday night and had not taken a physical, so a contract was not finished.
The Seattle Times reported seeing James' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, in the lobby of team headquarters as practice began.
Duckett was also missing. A team spokesman said the veteran running back is still on the roster, hours after an Internet report that Seattle is releasing him to make roster room for James.
