Another player gradually getting back to full health is strong safety Kam Chancellor, who today got as much work as he has at any practice during training camp after having off-season surgery to repair some hip issues that dates to his college days at Virginia Tech.
“I feel good,” Chancellor said after practice. “I can tell a different in everything. … it just feels different, feels good.”
A healthier Chancellor is a scary thought for Seattle opponents given that he’s made two straight Pro Bowls as is.
It’s uncertain when Chancellor will play. Coach Pete Carroll said earlier not to expect to see Chancellor much until the regular season, so it’s possible he makes only a cameo appearance at some point or maybe not much of one at all.
Chancellor today sounded like a guy who wants to get on the field as soon as he can, though.
He watched Denver’s 21-16 preseason win from Seattle, and said he didn’t always like what he saw out of the Seahawks.
“From a defensive standpoint, we didn’t look like ourselves,” he said. “It comes back to coming back out here and getting back out on the practice field and sharpening up every mental mistake we had and get us to come back down and running and hitting. We are a team that runs and hits and we’ve got to get back to what we do.”
