Seahawks injury report

Here's the initial injury report following Friday night's games against the Bears: --- Coach Pete Carroll said linebacker Heath Farwell "did something to his groin'' on the play in the fourth quarter where he stumbled in the end zone defending a pass. --- TE Cooper Helfet hurt his shoulder and knee and did not return. --- TE  Luke Willson was tested for a concussion but came back in. --- LB Brock Coyle hurt an ankle but came back in. --- SS Jeron Johnson had a sore foot but Carroll said "it didn't seem to be too bad. We have to wait and see.'' --- LT Russell Okung and C Max Unger each came...

Seattle Seahawks 2014 position preview: Offensive line

The 2013 Seattle Seahawks offensive line was supposed to be a strength. Centered around Pro Bowlers Russell Okung and Max Unger, the rest of the workmanlike group would be counted upon to open up running lanes for running back Marshawn Lynch and protect quarterback Russell Wilson. But the injury bug hit the group early in […]

Starters Return, Team Backs Star: Seahawks’ Enjoy “Too Good Tuesday”

Three Impressions on Seattle Seahawks practice from Jayson Jenks, Bob Condotta

Here we go with our daily Three Impressions from Seahawks practice from beat writers Jayson Jenks and Bob Condotta. First, from Jenks: 1, Tuesday marked the first time the Seahawks had their projected starting offensive line on the field during team scrimmages this preseason. That group featured Russell Okung at left tackle, James Carpenter at left guard, Max Unger at center, J.R. Sweezy at right guard and rookie Justin Britt at right tackle. Okung hadn’t participated in the team portion of practices after having offseason surgery and Carpenter had missed a chunk of training camp with a...

Seattle Seahawks depth chart for San Diego game

  Here is the Seahawks's depth chart for the game Friday night against the Chargers. Again, this is unofficial and done mostly as an overall guide. And also, things could change between now and Friday night. But it's useful as a general idea of showing who is where. No real significant changes from last week other than the return to health of some of the offensive line with Russell Okung listed at LT and James Carpenter at LG. Alvin Bailey and Caylin Hauptmann were listed as the starters at those spots last week.

Okung, Chancellor getting back; Simon shines again; Wilson makes ‘em roar (again)

The Seahawks are off the field following their 10th practice of training camp, two days before the first preseason game at Denver. The most noteworthy sights: Left tackle Russell Okung and safety Kam Chancellor practicing more and watching less following offseason surgeries. Like Monday, they didn’t do a ton — mostly individual-position and group work, and nothing in team scrimmaging. But getting almost 10 percent of its starting 22 back from surgery doing more on the field than just watching their teammates is a positive for Seattle for its opener Sept. 4 against Green Bay. Okung, the...

Video: Kam Chancellor says "I'm definitely on schedule''

Strong safety Kam Chancellor is another veteran who returned to practice this week. Like left tackle Russell Okung, Chancellor is doing some early work, but isn't yet doing full team drills. But just like Okung, Chancellor is happy just to be back on the field in any capacity and says he thinks he's on track for a return to full  duty for the beginning of the season. Chancellor had off-season surgery on his hip to clean up an injury he said dates back "five, six years ago'' to his days at Virginia Tech. "I'm on schedule to where I want to be and I feel like I'm getting healthy,'' Chancellor...

Video: Russell Okung says "I'm really close, really close''

Today's practice marked the most work yet this camp for left tackle Russell Okung, who got on the field for some of the early positional drill work. He did not participate in team drills. Still, it marked another step on the road to getting back on the field for Okung, who had off-season surgery on the foot he injured in the second game of last season against the 49ers and that then held him out of eight games. Afterward, he spoke to the media and said he feels he'll soon be back playing. "I'm really close, really close.'' he said. "Just working in little by little, day by day, and hopefully...

Guys returning, guys leaving, guys finding their places

  Pete Carroll predicted the post-surgical return of Kam Chancellor and Russell Okung to be near the start of training camp, so his timetable proved fairly accurate. The two joined practice for the first time on Monday, and although they didn’t participate in team sessions, they look fit and moved without any obvious health issues. Each being Pro Bowl-caliber players, their return is crucial, but even more so because of the lean situation on the roster behind them. Chancellor’s replacement, Jeron Johnson, has looked fine in camp, as he has when he’s seen playing time last year. He … ...

Seahawks Thursday Training Camp notes

While I was able to get a great view of practice on Saturday, today's was a bit more of a struggle. The team mainly worked on the west-most field, which means the action is a few hundred feet away from the nearest fans. It was much more difficult to pick out numbers and make notes at that distance, but I'll do my best. Fortunately, my seat was right in line with the one-on-one pass-rush drills, so I was able to get a good view of the o-line. Offensive Line Russell Okung, Michael Bowie, and James Carpenter remained out. This meant that the first team, from left to right, consisted of Alvin...

Practice impressions from Jenks, Condotta

Here are our daily impressions from practice. First, from Jayson Jenks, and then from Bob Condotta: 1, The offensive line continues to operate under patchwork conditions. Left tackle Russell Okung, right tackle Michael Bowie and guard James Carpenter all sat out Thursday’s practice because of injuries. That meant the first-team offensive line on Thursday looked like this: tackles Justin Britt and Alvin Bailey, guards Caylin Hauptman and J.R. Sweezy and center Max Unger. Only two of those players — Sweezy and Unger — are expected to start this season, although Britt is in a battle with...
