The Seattle Seahawks finish off their 2016 training camp open practice schedule on Tuesday and there’s plenty more to find out before their preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday. Here’s what we know as we head into Tuesday’s practice:
- The running back situation got a lot better on Monday, with basically the whole group back for practice, including a new face. Rookie C.J. Prosise (hamstring) returned to camp for the first time since early on day one. They want him to be able to get some snaps against the Vikings on Thursday. “Veteran” Thomas Rawls is getting in more reps now too as he begins to shake the rust off since breaking his ankle last year. Sixth round pick Zac Brooks (hamstring) also returned on Monday. Meanwhile, undrafted free agent rookie Kyle Coleman converted back to the offense as a fullback after spending the summer converting to playing linebacker. Coleman got high marks from coaches and teammates from his play at LB, but apparently they need to get another look at him at fullback after the injury to Brandon Cottom; they must have not felt comfortable with what they’ve seen from Jonathan Amosa and Tani Tupou. The team released Cameron Marshall on Monday, roughly a week after signing him following the injury debacle.
- The offensive line once again had Bradley Sowell at left tackle and Garry Gilliam at right tackle as J’Marcus Webb recovers from a knee injury. Veteran Jahri Evans was working with the second team at right guard on Monday. Nobody appears locked into anything just yet, but Justin Britt seems to have a pretty tight grip on the center position. We’ll know a lot more after we figure out what they really think of Webb.
- Mike Morgan wasn’t with the team on Monday, as he was in Philadelphia getting a checkup for a groin injury. Apparently they don’t think he will miss the game on Thursday though. Meanwhile, Cassius Marsh got first team reps at SAM linebacker on Monday.
- The Seahawks signed vet DT Tony McDaniel on Monday and I don’t think there’s any reason we wouldn’t see him practicing on Tuesday. He knows what to do after spending 2013 and 2014 under Pete Carroll. It’s not a good sign for Sealver Siliga, however.
