It’s that time of camp where some players are rising to the fore during practice — but now need to also begin showing that in the games that begin this week. Thursday, to be specific in Seattle’s case, in San Diego.
One such player is third-year linebacker Mike Morgan, who played in all 16 games last year as a reserve and special teamer (getting one start against the Jets when K.J. Wright was out).
I wrote about Morgan’s ascension for our main story for the Tuesday paper.
As linebacker coach Ken Norton made clear Monday, Morgan is one of the players to expect to see showcased in San Diego.
“You are going to get a lot of him this game,’’ Norton said. “With (Chris) Clemons being down, (Cliff) Avril being down, you are going to get a big dose of Michael Morgan and he’s going to have a chance to really show everyone his improvement and who he is now.’’
Also today is our look at day 10 of camp.
Day 11 begins at 10 a.m. and we’ll have full coverage later.
