Russell Wilson quotes Thursday

QB Russell Wilson

July 31, 2014

(On Marines coming to shore) Well that huge helicopter kind of gives it away a little bit. We don’t see that too often around here but just to be around the Marines and how they snuck in on us. They had been kind of going around the stadium for a while. I didn’t even notice they were around so they did a pretty good job of disguising themselves for a while there. But it’s just a great thing to be out here and to be around them and them to share their experiences

Lynch return?

We just heard a huge cheer in the Seahawks auditorium adjacent to our press room. Could it be the return of Marshawn Lynch? And could it be coincidence that an armored Brinks truck pulled in at the front door?

Reports are circulating that he’s on his way back and will end his week-long holdout and be at practice tomorrow.

Today, though, we should get some clarity on the extent of the Achilles injury to tight end Anthony McCoy and knee issue of defensive tackle Jesse Williams.

If there’s been a theme thus far, in my perspective, it’s been the high level of competition. It’s to be expected that a veteran team with a lot of holdovers from a successful season would practice well. But it was fair to

Nothing specific on Jesse Williams’ knee injury

The Seahawks put out word that the injury to Jesse Williams was to a knee, as we reported after practice. Sometimes injury reports are intentionally vague, or they’re awaiting further medical examination. I tend to respect their judgment on the release of medical information. Since it was during a practice open to the public, I feel comfortable to at least give you the circumstances. Williams was hurt during the one-on-one pass protection/rush session against the offensive line. He had come into camp after missing his rookie season with a knee injury, and looked leaner and quicker than he did when
