Tuesday practice report: Mebane again sits out, McDaniel also out

The Seahawks are off the field following their Tuesday practice, one that again saw some missing faces on the defensive line.

A day after the team put Jesse Williams on the IR, the Seahawks were without two other defensive tackles who played last week — Brandon Mebane and Tony McDaniel. Coach Pete Carroll did not speak to the media today, so we did not get updates.

Mebane suffered a groin injury late in Monday’s practice so his absence today is surely related to that. McDaniel has also battled groin issues throughout camp, and may have just been resting.

Als0 still out is Jordan Hill, who hurt his biceps last week.

So that had the Seahawks giving a lot of time during practice with the first line to Clinton McDonald and newly-acquired Sealver Siliga.

Also still out are Cliff Avril and Chris Clemons, so the defensive line remains a work in progress.

Also out today was FB Michael Robinson, who has now missed a week with an unspecified illness.

WR Stephen Williams also sat out today, though again no indication why.

And WR Bryan Walters, who had returned this week from a hamstring injury that has held him out the entire preseason, appeared to get hurt again lateĀ  in practice.

Quarterback Russell Wilson met the media afterward and talked about the visit to practice today of Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. I’ll pass along some of that later.

Also, the team still needs to make four moves to get to the NFL limit of 75 by 1 p.m.
