News, notes, and injury updates from Sunday’s Seahawks mock game

NFL: International Series-Seattle Seahawks Practice Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Seattle Seahawks fans saw their team live at Lumen Field for the first time since 2019 on Sunday, when the team took the field for their mock game. The game was not available to stream online, and filming/photographing the game was strictly policed, but a number of the media were in attendance to give updates.

Ugo Amadi was given the honor of carrying the 12s flag out on to the field before the game.

About 1/5 of the stadium was full Sunday, meaning there was some crowd noise, but nothing like the team would hear at a typical home game.

There weren’t a ton of highlights from the game, but one you’ve probably seen all over social media and on Field Gulls was Poona Ford’s scoop-and-score, which came off of a fumbled exchange between Geno Smith and Josh Johnson.

Ford was in good spirits after his highlight-reel play.

The starters defeated the second team by a score of 22-3, and the highlight of the day on the offensive side was a long play-action pass from Russell Wilson to D.K. Metcalf.

Thankfully, there were no major injuries from the game, but training camp standout Penny Hart did come down with a slight ankle injury. D.J. Reed and Rashaad Penny both sat out with minor issues.

Of course, two other notable absences from the game were Jamal Adams and Duane Brown, who are both currently looking for new deals.
