Guess who’s back:
The Seahawks have their second-to-last open training camp practice of the year on Monday. They will also practice on Tuesday before an off-day and then their second preseason game of the season on Thursday, hosting the Minnesota Vikings.
What else to look for on Monday?
Coleman was an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas Pine-Bluff, signed as a fullback, moved to linebacker, got a lot of praise from Bobby Wagner for making plays there, but now appears to be working out as a FB again. The team signed Jonathan Amosa after Brandon Cottom tore his Achilles, but perhaps they aren’t liking what they’re seeing so far. Coleman could be a fascinating option as a backup linebacker/starting fullback.
- Stanley Jean-Baptiste is in a sling on Monday. He injured his shoulder on Saturday and that may end his chances of cracking the final 53.

J’Marcus Webb can’t afford to miss much more practice, unless the combination of Garry Gilliam and Bradley Sowell really looks awful. It didn’t look too bad on Saturday.
- Kasen Williams has a helmet on and is back practicing again, but Kam Chancellor (groin) appears to still be out. That’s really unfortunate, given how he missed all of training camp and preseason last year, plus the first two games, because of his holdout. Having the entire secondary healthy to open training camp was a really nice, but apparently fleeting, feeling.

The list of healthy(ish) running backs on Monday looks like: Thomas Rawls, Christine Michael, C.J. Prosise, Alex Collins, and Zac Brooks, plus the new fullback Coleman. Suddenly the position looks even deeper than it did two weeks ago thanks to the fact that Michael and Collins played so well in absence of the others. Should be an interesting next three weeks.
- Jordan Hill appears to be missing another practice. Hill’s long-running list of injuries isn’t winning him any fans.
