Seattle’s practice is over for today. We did not get coach Pete Carroll today, as was regularly scheduled., so no specific personnel updates.
But here are a few notes:
— First, the team made one roster move today, adding cornerback Thomas “Trey” Wolfe of Fort Valley State and waiving as injured safety Dion Bailey. Bailey badly sprained his ankle in Saturday’s practice. There’s some coincidence here as you may recall that those two hooked up for the final play of the team’s rookie mini-camp when Wolfe tipped a Keith Price pass on the final play into the hands of Bailey for an interception. Wolfe was there as a tryout player and had not signed with anyone else until the Seahawks picked him up today. He wore jersey No. 1 and was immediately thrown into the fire, assigned to cover Percy Harvin on his first play. Harvin made the catch in a welcome to the NFL moment for Wolfe.
— It was a no-pads practice and heavy on passing. Still, Marshawn Lynch got some carries, the most work of camp so far, another step toward getting him into football shape.
— No new injuries apparent. Among those getting more work were safety Kam Chancellor and OL Russell Okung. I’ll pass along some quotes and video from each later as each spoke to the media for the first time this camp. Each said they feel good and on-track to play in the regular season after their off-season surgeries.
— WR Paul Richardson had a good day, working with no restrictions, making catches all over the place.
— WR Phil Bates was back after missing most of yesterday’s practice after being sick.
— CB Tharold Simon had a nice day, at one point batting a pass away that caused Richard Sherman to race from the other side of the field in celebration. Simon ended the practice with an interception on a fake field goal pass from holder Jon Ryan that was intended for Steven Hauschka.
— LB K.J. Wright also had a nice day with two interceptions, one on a pass from Terrelle Pryor that Wright tipped and then controlled.
— DLs Tony McDaniel and Michael Bennett appeared to take rest days. DL Jordan Hill was also again out — not sure why.
— OL James Carpenter was back on a limited basis, but Caylin Hauptmann worked with the first team at left guard.
— LB Kevin Pierre-Louis and CB Akeem Auguste were among those still out, and there was still no sign of WR David Gilreath, who we haven’t seen on the field for a few days.
— Justin Britt worked with the first unit at RT with Eric Winston with the second unit.
— Seemed like WR Chris Matthews got as much as he has all camp and he made a few catches. Could be a tough road to a 53-man roster spot, though.
