Seahawks practice over — DT Jesse Williams carted off

Seattle’s fifth training camp practice ended Wednesday with the specter of another possible serious injury, this one to second-year defensive tackle Jesse Williams.

The former Alabama star and fifth-round pick of the Seahawks in 2013 was carted off the field midway through the full-pads practice with a leg injury — details were not immediately known on the specific body part or the severity as coach Pete Carroll did not talk to the media afterward.

Williams has a history of knee problems including having had surgery last year that held him out of the 2013 season.

The Seahawks are hoping Williams could emerge as a member of the team’s defensive line rotation up front, backing up tackles Tony McDaniel and Brandon Mebane.

There were no other apparent injuries during the practice though 13 players were held out today, the most during camp.

Most were for minor issues and could be back in a day or two.

One who was out was tight end Anthony McCoy, who suffered an Achilles tendon injury on Tuesday and is likely done for the season. Official word from the team on the injuries to Williams and McCoy could come later.

Others who were out included WRs Jermaine Kearse and Paul Richardson, LB Bobby Wagner, DE O’Brien Schofield and OL Michael Bowie as well as players who have been out for a while (Malcolm Smith, Russell Okung, etc.).

RB Marshawn Lynch was also again absent, day seven of his contract holdout.

A couple of players who returned to practice Wednesday were WR Kevin Norwood and LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, who had been out the day before.

We’ll have impressions and more notes and quotes later.
