As the preseason continued in full swing Tuesday, a number of players returned from injury for Seattle. Here are the players that returned, followed by what Pete Carroll had to say about the players.
Return Day for #Seahawks, and not just Luke Willson.— Gregg Bell (@gbellseattle) August 24, 2021
These previously injured were back on the field:
CB D.J. Reed (eyeing starting job)
S/nickel Marquise Blair
LT Jamarco Jones
OT Cedric Ogbuehi
QB Geno Smith
WR Penny Hart
RB Travis Homer (off PUP list)
LB Jon Rhattigan #GoArmy
After a few weeks of uncertainty at the center position, Ethan Pocic returned to practice Tuesday, albeit not participating fully.
Carroll said Ethan Pocic was on a pitch count today and they will be careful to ease him back with his hamstring issue. But he said there is still time for Pocic to get the starting center job, which of late has belonged to Kyle Fuller.— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) August 24, 2021
Deejay Dallas has been the star at the running back position this preseason, but a healthy Travis Homer is now throwing himself into the mix for the wide-open backup competition.
Carroll said he was excited about the return of Travis Homer and noted how good of a pass blocker he is. He could well get right back into the third-down back competition, which seems pretty wide open.— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) August 24, 2021
Unfortunately, not everything was recovery for Seattle today; it was announced that Tre Brown went down with a knee injury.
Now rookie Tre Brown is hurt and not practicing at cornerback. “Sore knee,” Pete Carroll says.— Gregg Bell (@gbellseattle) August 24, 2021
Carroll says #Seahawks’ trade today with Houston to get CB John Reid is to address that.
And here are a few clips of Carroll speaking about tight end injury and signing updates (yes, Luke Willson is back again).
Tyler Mabry returned to practice today, but Colby Parkinson remains out. Pete Carroll said it won’t be clear for a while if Parkinson will be ready by Week 1. He called his foot injury a “real slight” non-displaced fracture. Here was Carroll on Seattle re-signing Luke Willson: pic.twitter.com/BxWR3S33T3— Brady Henderson (@BradyHenderson) August 24, 2021

To end on a happy note, the return of Luke Willson means that Techno Tuesday is back! The Super Bowl XLVIII champion had his teammates dancing to his music today.
