Quick OTA personnel updates and Carroll video

The Seahawks are off the field following their first OTA of the year, and the only one this week that will be open to the  media.

We’ll have lots of quotes and observations later. For now, a few quick personnel updates with some video of coach Pete Carroll below.

— LB Malcolm Smith is in a walking boot and won’t participate in OTAs after having surgery on his ankle to clean up some loose bodies. He’s expected to be fine for training camp.

— SS Kam Chancellor is out while recovering from the hip surgery he had in the off-season. But Carroll said he’ll be back for training camp.

— LT Russell Okung also remains out after off-season surgery.

— DT Jesse Williams was out today due to a laceration but should be back soon.

– CB Tharold Simon remains out while recovering from the foot/toe injury of last season. He could be cleared to run by the end of the week.

— QB Keith Price was limited today due to a groin issue.

— WRs Sidney Rice (knee) and Chris Matthews (hamstring) also did not participate in any team stuff. But Carroll said Rice is ahead of schedule and should be back for training camp.

— Rookie DLs Cassius Marsh and Andru Pulu cannot be here right now because their schools are on the quarter system and not out of session.

— The Seahawks have signed LB Horace Miller of UTEP, who was here on a tryout basis  at the rookie mini-camp. He is the 90th player on the roster. He is wearing No. 47 with TE Rashaun Allen switching to 84.

— RB Marshawn Lynch, DE Cliff Avril and QB Tarvaris Jackson were not there — remember that these are voluntary. Carroll said Jackson had a family issue and Avril is on his honeymoon. Lynch missed a few OTAs last year and appears to be on the same plan. Carroll was vague on when he will participate. Mini-camp in June is voluntary.,

— And in the big position news, that we will expand on later, Carroll said FS Earl Thomas would be the starting punt returner if the season began today but that Richard Sherman, Percy Harvin and Bryan Walters are all in the mix.
