The Seahawks are off the field following their second practice of training camp.
The team was again in no-pads and relatively no contact.
There were no new significant injuries that were readily apparent. There were reports that TE Sean McGrath was carted off the field following practice during the autograph session (I did not see it). He had also appeared to tweak something at the end of the Thursday workout, but was back out on the field participating today.
Two new players sat out the practice — fullback Michael Robinson and linebacker Heath Farwell. Coach Pete Carroll did not meet the media today so we did not get details on the issues with either player.
The players placed on the PUP list Thursday also remain out until their status changes.
A couple of interesting things in the lineups:
— Tarvaris Jackson ran the No. 2 offense ahead of Brady Quinn. It’s possible the team is just rotating those guys, but that’s a different order than Thursday, when Quinn ran the backups;
— John Moffitt appeared to usually run with the No. 1 offense at right guard ahead of J.R. Sweezy. Paul McQuistan continued to work with the ones ahead of James Carpenter on the left side;
— With Percy Harvin out, Doug Baldwin got the snaps with the ones at the slot receiver spot. What appear to be the next three WRs after the top four guys are Jermaine Kearse, Stephen Williams (who had a few notable catches today) and Phil Bates;
— With Farwell out, Allen Bradford worked as the No. 2 MLB;
— Newly-acquired TE Michael Palmer got a lot of work throughout;
Among the players who spoke afterward were Brandon Browner, who called the raise he got yesterday a good gesture by the team; Tarvaris Jackson, who spoke about deciding to re-sign with Seattle; and defensive end Cliff Avril, who said the foot injury that limited him during OTAs and mini-camp appears to be okay for now.
I’ll have video of each player to pass along a little later, as well as a few other notes.
