Seahawks practive over — Injury and personnel updates

The Seahawks are off the field following their Sunday practice, the third of training camp.

Here are the significant personnel updates from today:

— RB Christine Michael sat out the second half of practice with a shoulder injury. But coach Pete Carroll said it was nothing major. “He just banged his shoulder a litlte bit,” Carroll said. “They think that he will be ready to go on Tuesday.”

— WR Kevin Norwood sat out for the second straight day. Carroll said “he’s had a foot that was sore back in OTAs and he came back from the first day and felt it again, so we are going to rest him until Tuesday and see how he does coming back. He had an old surgery in high school and we have checked it all out. There are no big concerns with it but he does have a sore foot, so we are resting him.”

— DT Jimmy Staten was out after hyperextending his knee and then pulling his hamstring, Carroll said. “He had a pretty legitimate hamstring pull yesterday so he is going to be out for a little bit,” Carroll said.

— LT Russell Okung remains out while coming back from toe/foot surgery. Carroll said Okung is roughly two weeks from returning but noted that Okung is doing all of the work in walkthroughs.

— WR Percy Harvin was back today after resting on Saturday. Carroll said on Harvin’s rest day he is going through all of the other work. “We just want to work our way into camp in a mode to make sure we don’ overload him early,” Carroll said. ” And trying to figure out what kind of a workload he can handle. He works so hard and so fast in practice, we think we can do this for a while. We’ll see how it goes and we are just going to learn as we go.”

— DT Jesse Williams was also back today after resting Saturday. “Just rested him, taking care of him,” Carroll said of Williams. “He’s coming back from a knee situation which we thought would warrant not overloading him back-to-back days just right off the bat so we can see what he can do. Didn’t catch much of him today, but he had a great first day. He looked fantastic. He’s lost 15 pounds. He’s really looking good, lean and fast, so we are really encouraged by Jesse. So just trying to monitor as he goes through to make sure we don’t overload him.”

— And yes, Marshawn Lynch remains holding out. Since the team officially began camp when players reported on Thursday, he is subject to having been already fined$120,000 — $30,000 for each day he has held out All of this, however, is at team discretion. So still  lots  of gray area here on what — or whether — Lynch has or will be fined.
