Practice and pressers: What we learned on training camp day 7

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

The Seahawks returned to practice on Thursday, following a day off for the team on Wednesday. Before Seattle headed onto the field to begin, head coach Pete Carroll met with reporters on a Zoom call. Here’s what we learned from Carroll’s media session and practice on Thursday.

Carroll provided further clarity on first-round pick Jordyn Brooks’ health, after the linebacker sat out with a groin injury earlier in the week. Carroll said it could have been more of a cramp than a strain. They hope to have him participate in a mock game Saturday.

Carroll offered praise for Marquise Blair, who is attempting to win the vacant nickelback job.

No delay for Quinton Dunbar, who was expected to make his full practice debut on Thursday after gradually being worked in.

Colby Parkinson, who broke his foot training in the offseason, is ahead of schedule and will come off the NFI list before the regular season.

Freddie Swain, Poona Ford, and Demarcus Christmas remained out on Thursday, while Phil Haynes returned. Chris Carson got what seemed to be a planned day off, while Danny Etling still has to go through COVID-19 testing protocol.

B.J. Finney saw time at right guard, allowing Ethan Pocic to further his reps with the first-team at center.

With Dunbar fully participating, Blair was able to slide back to safety and get some reps at his natural position.

It was a lighter session for the team, as they ramp up for the mock game this weekend.
