Practice is over. Here are the highlights:

K Josh Brown was not at practice with what the team said was an excused absence. When the team did its field goal drills, none other than punter Ryan Plackemeier kicked. Plack made his first two kicks, hooked a third barely and did not get to try a third when holder Charlie Frye bobbled the snap. Plackemeier, who kicked in college, said in a bind he could do it but wouldn’t be comfortable on longer kicks.

With center Chris Spencer being the “oblique injury of the week”, Chris Gray was the center for the first-team offense. Filling in at his right guard spot was Floyd “Pork Chop” Womack. Spencer spent his time at practice wearing a backpack with an electric stimulation machine hooked up to his injury.

Other players not practicing were WR D.J. Hackett (ankle), CB Josh Wilson (quad) and DT Rocky Bernard. LB Will Herring (hamstring) was at practice but did not do much, if anything.

Catch(es) of the day belonged Logan Payne, who made two grabs that drew oohs and aahs. His first grab he laid out and made a nice catch about 20 yards down the field. On his second, he made a one-handed grab near the sideline.

    Why not just

    oblique of the week

    It rolls off the tongue so much more eloquently than “oblique injury of the week” which seems, well, clunky…

  2. how about tweeked oblique of the week?

    And what’s wrong with Rocky? With Edge James coming to town, we’re going to need him on Sunday.

  3. martygivens says:

    Logan Payne is an action hero name if ever there was one. Payne, Logan Payne.

  4. I don’t know what the individual SeaHawks are thinking, but knowing that both Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin may be out gives me more confidence about a victory in next weeks game. Go ‘Hawks!

  5. Tompage says:

    Logan Payne news? I guess we are looking hard for something to report.

  6. badicalturboradness says:

    The worst thing the Hawks could do would be get cocky because Boldin and Fitz are out. We have a track record of going into “sure” wins and getting rolled by the other team. I don’t want to see any overconfidence. We need to play with a chip on our shoulder and be aggressive and kick some Cardinal butt.

  7. bandwagon says:

    It seems Rocky hasn’t practised in weeks. He just shows up Sundays and plays well.

  8. hawkfaninoklahoma says:

    rocky has a grion injury had most ogf the season

  9. sherminator says:

    Since the play starts pretty much in his face, and he doesn’t have the time or space to move more than about 8 yards in any direction, I think Rocky has a pretty good idea of where he should be in any defensive scheme. And boy, (not that I’m calling Rocky a boy) Rocky seems to be there most of the time.

  10. PoppaPig says:

    Don’t rule the massive receivers out just yet. Larry Fitzgerald practiced yesterday and will likely be another game-time decision. The gravity of this game leads me to believe both will do everything possible to contribute.

    Dont forget, we werent able to preassure Leinhart on the first match-up and it was Edgerin James who drove their offense with over 120 yards!

    Sunday cant come soon enough..

    Hey Frank,

    I feel really bad about asking this question now because it seems like I’m jinxing the team (guys please accept my apologies in advance for this :)) but I had a question about divisional winners in the NFL.

    I swear I heard somewhere that no team has won their division 4 years in a row – Is this true? I searched the web looking for an answer but couldn’t find one.

    If anyone knows I’d appreciate hearing about it.

  12. tdoodhew – You heard that from Shaun and it is bunk. Several teams – Chicago, 49ers, Dallas, etc – have won at least 4 consecutive divisional championships.

  13. PoppaPig says:

    Not sure who holds the record, but the Rams won 5 straight under Knox..

  14. tgoodhew says:

    Pilot & PoppaPig – Thanks for the info – Appreciate it.

  15. JimWilke says:

    Looking around a bit, Fitzgerald has a ‘groin problem’ and is probably going to play. Boldin has a hip issue that has been bothering him for a while and he dislocated his toe in the 3rd quarter of last week’s game. They are going to try and use an orhthotic insert in his shoe…….good luck with that. No practice yesterday.

  16. The Tards (god how I love calling them that!) still have a couple good players–their third and fourth guys are also tall and fast, and they have Jerheme Urban–remember him? He made some nice plays erlier in the year, but hasnt seen any action lately. Maybe his foot is still an issue? Anyway, point is, Fitzgerald will probably play, Boldin might too (in a reduced role), and the Tards can still pass, so…Dont get cocky Hawks! Im sick of them backing into the playoffs with a couple losses.

  17. How are Plackemeier’s kickoffs? He was touted as a ‘kickoff specialist’ in his draft bio. It would be great to have touchbacks and not worry about our suspect return coverage.
