Some quick post-practice notes.
Tight end Anthony McCoy, coming back from a serious Achilles injury, appeared to injury the Achilles on his other (left) leg. Pete Carroll said if it’s what it looks like, it will be “heartbreaking”
James Carpenter (calf) and Bobby Wagner (hamstring) were taken out of drills with muscle tightness. Kevin Pierre-Loius has a sore oblique. Kevin Norwood continues to deal with a foot issue that is the remnant of an old surgery. He should be back into action in a day or two, Carroll said. O’Brien Scholfield was rested.
New right tackle Eric Winston was brought on for depth and experience, Carroll said. Winston had a terrific block against Cliff Avril in one-on-one pass protection drills. Winston said he saw how much the Seahawks flew around and had fun last year when he was with Arizona. After his first day, he sees that it’s because of the way they practice. He said he’s happy to be with them rather than playing against them.
Marshawn Lynch was again a no-show. Although some early figures tossed around were inflated, it appears it will now cost him $225,000 that the team can recoup from him off his pro-rated signing bonus. That brings the cost of his hold out thus far to somewhere north of $400,000.
Carroll said he’s still watching the competition at punt returner and said if he had to decide now, it would be Earl Thomas.
Practice highlights included two touchdown passes to rookie Paul Richardson from Terrelle Pryor. Pryor had his best practice of camp. And Tarvaris Jackson continues to get limited snaps at quarterback
