Lots of personnel notes to pass along from the VMAC today from Pete Carroll’s press conference today. …
— Carroll said WR Kevin Norwood and DE Bruce Irvin are back to practice this week and each have a chance to play Thursday against the Packers.
— Carroll says cornerback Jeremy Lane will practice this week and “we’ll see what that means.” Lane missed the Raiders game with a hamstring injury.
— CB Tharold Simon remains battling a sore knee, Carroll said and “we’ll see how he makes it through the week.”
— DL Cassius Marsh is back to practice after hurting his hip against the Raiders and sounds like is okay.
— Carroll said LB Kevin Pierre-Louis has a pulled hamstring.
— He also said that RB Christine Michael, who hurt his hamstring in practice last week, remains “banged up. We’ll figure that out later in the week.”
— S Earl Thomas, in case it needs to be stated again, remains atop the depth chart at punt returner, Carroll said. But with Bryan Walters now back in the fold, he could also factor in to those duties.
— Speaking of Sherman, Carroll heaped praise on him today saying that he has had the best camp of his four here with the Seahawks.
— Carroll also spoke glowingly of the camp for veteran DT Kevin Williams calling him “just a real anchor” on the team’s defensive line.
— Carroll said Russell Okung made it through the Oakland game well and that the way Okung played was the most exciting thing he got out of the game against the Raiders.
