A few quick notes and quotes from Seahawks practice today.
— No apparent new injuries today. WR Phil Bates left early on but coach Pete Carroll said he was sick, so not an injury.
— OL Russell Okung and S Kam Chancellor each returned to do some individual work, though they did not participate in team drills. RB Marshawn Lynch also got a couple reps, but not a whole lot of work. WR Paul Richardson was back and was full go though he did wear a red jersey. Richardson said after practice he is fine just that they are being real cautious with him.
— Carroll talked about losing OL Michael Bowie on waivers to Cleveland and said they hoped to keep him. But he also said that “there’s big competition going on” and “we have to keep moving and keep going on here.” Asked about keeping Bowie on the roster for a few more weeks to be able to send him straight to IR, Carroll said “that’s the decision that we made.. He came in 20 pounds overweight too, you know.”
— OL Justin Britt was also back today and said his shoulder injury is nothing much. Carroll said Britt and Eric Winston will battle for the RT spot and that Alvin Bailey may also factor in there.
— Of the new OLs signed recently — Wade Smith and Cory Brandon — Carroll said both add some flexibility, and that Smith adds some experience, with Carroll noting he has started at least one NFL game at all five spots. But he said it will take a while to sort it all out. Brandon played tackle today and Smith guard.
—B.J. Daniels got the most work he’s gotten all camp today. Carroll said Daniels has had to “take a back seat” to Terrelle Pryor earlier in camp but that Daniels will play some Thursday and they wanted to make sure he gets prepared. “We’d like to see him play in this game so he had to get some more reps,” Carroll said..
— It’s continuing to sound sort of ominous on WR Kevin Norwood as Carroll said “it’s going to take some time here. We’re going to continue to evaluate him. It’s a situation we’ve got to wait out a little bit.”
— Carroll said James Carpenter is likely to return tomorrow but that Bobby Wagner will need some more time. I’d assume that means he’s out through past the Denver game.
Here’s some video of Carroll talking about the progress of Percy Harvin and a bit more:
