Here’s our daily quick glance at what happened at training camp today:
What happened: The Seahawks opened training camp with a roughly two-hour workout at the VMAC, going in helmets and shorts.
The big story: Marshawn Lynch’s holdout became official when he didn’t show up for the first practice. He was the only player on the 90-man roster not present as he attempts to make his point about either getting a new contract, or at least some more up-front money. Per NFL rules, he will be fined $30,000 for each day he misses as a hold out.
Play of the day: Rookie Kevin Norwood showed the hands the compelled the team to take him in the draft when he leaped high in traffic down the sideline to snare a pass from Tarvaris Jackson. It was one of several nice plays for the fourth-round pick from Alabama.
Player of the day: A year ago on the first day of training camp, the Seahawks placed Percy Harvin on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list. Friday, he looked healthy as can be, running all over the place on a variety of passes and running plays that illustrated well the variety of ways in which the team hopes to use him this season.
Injury report: Seattle placed three players on the PUP list – linebackers Bruce Irvin and Korey Toomer and safety Eric Pinkins. All can be recalled at any time. Irvin, coming off hip surgery, may not return until the end of the pre-season. Toomer, nursing a hamstring, will likely be out a couple weeks. Pinkins has a lisfranc injury and could be out at least 4-6 weeks. Also sitting out were S Kam Chancellor (hip) and LB Malcolm Smith (ankle) each coming off off-season surgery. Chancellor could be back soon, while Smith may need a few more weeks. Also, LT Russell Okung, coming off foot surgery, was limited to individual drills. And RT Michael Bowie was limited late after tweaking his shoulder.
What’s next: The Seahawks will practice again Saturday at 10:15 a.m.
