Practice and pressers: What we learned on training camp day 8

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

With the first of two mock games looming on Saturday, the Seahawks took to the field at the VMac on Friday for their final practice until Monday, with a day off coming on Sunday. Here’s what we learned from the final session ahead of the mock game.

Bruce Irvin didn’t take part in practice on Friday but it could just be a veteran’s day off.

Chris Carson hasn’t practiced in several days, after arriving late to camp due to a personal matter. Carson’s absences have been excused by the team.

New quarterback Danny Etling is through COVID-19 testing protocol and practiced with Seattle for the first time on Friday.

Plenty of health updates, as Cody Thompson and Poona Ford joined Irvin on the sidelines, while Demarcus Christmas and Freddie Swain both returned.

Finally, a programming note: With NFL teams further restricting access at training camps, these day-to-day updates may become increasingly focused on who is returning from injuries and who is sitting out.
