As expected, the league-wide tightening on information reporters can share from practices has led to little updates of note with the Seahawks returning to practice on Monday. Between Pete Carroll’s media session and the practice itself, however, we were able to get some updates on the health status of various players. With another mock game coming up on Wednesday, it’s safe to assume the team will exercise caution with various players before then.
Most importantly, Branden Jackson was out of the hospital and back in the facility on Monday, following a scary injury on Saturday that knocked him out and ended Seattle’s mock game.
Carroll said there's no structural damage with Jackson but things they need to continue to check out. He said they'll be "deliberate" with evaluating Jackson, so it doesn't sound like he'll get back to practice anytime soon.— Brady Henderson (@BradyHenderson) August 24, 2020
Phillip Dorsett was left with a sore foot after Saturday’s mock game. As a result, he was held out of practice on Monday.

Great news for the Seahawks as Poona Ford returned to practice after being held out last week.

L.J. Collier was an unexpected absentee from Monday’s practice, sitting out for an unknown reason.
Seahawks DL L.J. Collier is not practicing today. When Pete Carroll was asked about new injuries from mock game earlier today, mentioned just WR Phillip Dorsett (sore foot). So not clear what the deal with Collier is— Ben Arthur (@benyarthur) August 24, 2020
Chris Carson remains away from the team due to personal reasons, while Tyler Lockett left practice because of a minor incident with his leg which required ice.
Couple quick personnel notes - Chris Carson remains away for personal reasons; Tyler Lockett had ice out on leg and is sitting out end of practice. But doesn’t appear to be a big deal.— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) August 24, 2020
The Seahawks will have another light practice on Tuesday, before the second of two mock games on Wednesday.
