Practice and pressers: What we learned on training camp day 6

NFL: Seattle Seahawks-Training Camp Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Before their second day of padded practices on Tuesday, Pete Carroll spoke to reporters about players carrying injuries and who has impressed in the early days of training camp. Here’s what we learned from that media session and the practice that followed, ahead of a day off on Wednesday.

Carroll began with an update on first-round pick Jordyn Brooks, who sat out on Monday. Carroll told reporters Brooks is dealing with a groin injury but expected him to return on Thursday. Instead, Brooks was in pads when practice began Tuesday.

The Cody Thompson train continues to roll along, as the second-year receiver has drawn praise from reporters and now Carroll.

For the second consecutive day, Carroll made it clear the center competition consists of three players, with Kyle Fuller in the mix along with B.J. Finney and Ethan Pocic.

A trio of pass rushers earned positive reviews from Carroll, as well.

Though Rashaad Penny’s timeline hasn’t appeared to change, Carroll offered the good news that the runner has stayed in good shape during rehab.

Quinton Dunbar, expected to ease into things, will get his first real day of practice on Thursday.

Phil Haynes sat out again on Tuesday, as another injury seems to hamper his ability to challenge Mike Iupati’s starting spot. He was joined on the sideline by Freddie Swain, Poona Ford, and Demarcus Christmas.

In the center competition, it was Pocic with the first-team reps on Tuesday.
