Healing is indeed a slow process: Nine Seahawks miss practice, four days before game vs NY Giants

That’s a lengthy list, longest one yet for a Wednesday.

Yet coach Pete Carroll says there is light at the end of the Seahawks’ seemingly deep, dark abyss of aches and pains.

Max Unger took what the coach described before practice as a personal day, and Carroll expects his two-time Pro Bowl center to practice Thursday on the road to potentially playing Sunday against the New York Giants for the first time in more than a month since he sprained his foot. Marshawn Lynch got his normal, Wednesday rest.

Carroll had expected Kam Chancellor and Russell Okung to practice half

Assessing a rather extraordinary first half to this Seahawks season

The Seahawks (5-3) are back on the practice field in Renton today for Sunday’s game against the New York Giants (3-5) at CenturyLink Field. Fox Sports’ No. 1 NFL announcing crew of Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and Erin Andrews is on the call of the 1:25 p.m. game.

Here is the latest version of the game notes the team produces each week, full of team and league stats and trends: n.y. giants (1)

For this morning’s paper The News Tribune asked me to assess the Seahawks at the regular season’s midway point, eight games in. Here is what I have:

Seahawks bring back Bryan Walters to return punts, sign TE Tony Moeaki to indicate Zach Miller may remain out

Apparently that punt fill-in returner Doug Baldwin fielded at his own 3-yard line last week got Bryan Walters his job back with his hometown team.

Days after releasing him so they go add to a desperately thin secondary for the Oakland game, the Seahawks have re-signed Walters, the wide receiver and kick returner from Kirkland. The only reason Walters had been on the roster since Week 2 until last weekend was to return punts and kickoffs. He replaced All-Pro safety Earl Thomas on punts and then traded Percy Harvin on kickoffs.


Rookie wide receiver Paul Richardson has been the

Seahawks release returner Bryan Walters to add S Terrance Parks; Paul Richardson now kickoff returner

The Seahawks have helped their depth problem at safety while giving rookie Paul Richardson the kickoff — and maybe punt — return job.

Seattle released kick and punt returner Bryan Walters of Kirkland today so it could add Terrance Parks off the practice squad to bolster a safety position that had just three healthy players for Sunday’s game against Oakland.

Walters was only on the roster because the Seahawks had decided after Week 1 that All-Pro safety Earl Thomas was too focused on new punt-return duties. Now, with Walters off the roster, Richardson becomes the apparent kickoff returner one

C Max Unger returns to Seahawks practice for 1st time in more than 3 weeks; Walters back from concussion

The Seahawks got some good injury news for a change at practice today. Two-time Pro Bowl center Max Unger was out there for the first time since he sprained his foot in the Oct. 6 game at Washington. He practiced on a limited basis, but that’s better for Seattle than him being out the last three games. Today’s progress makes it more possible Unger starts on Sunday against Oakland.

Coach Pete Carroll said before practice Unger and starting right cornerback Byron Maxwell, who has missed the last two games with a strained groin and didn’t practice this afternoon, are “day

By popular demand: Seahawks rookies Paul Richardson, Kevin Norwood enjoy post-Harvin rise

Good morning, as I depart Charlotte for the trip back to Renton for coach Pete Carroll’s day-after press conference this afternoon.

Part of the reason the Seahawks traded Percy Harvin to the New York Jets two weeks ago — besides the insubordination of refusing to come back into the loss to Dallas late in the game — was the team’s belief in rookie wide receivers Paul Richardson and Kevin Norwood.

Sunday, everyone got to see why Seattle drafted them this spring in the second and fourth rounds, respectively — and why many of you here have been

Seahawks’ tasks today at Carolina: Get to Cam Newton, unleash Russell Wilson, “ignore the noise”

Beautiful weather day here in Charlotte, N.C., about 75 degrees and no clouds.

For the fashion-istas out there: The Seahawks are in all gray today under their blue helmets.

We will be chatting live from here in the press box at Bank of America Stadium to Seahawks fans around the world beginning at 9:30 a.m. Pacific Time here on the blog.

The Seahawks’ inactives for today are not a surprise — all injured players, including four starters, plus usually inactive extra tackle Andrew McDonald: Punt and kickoff returner Bryan Walters (concussion), corrnerback Byron Maxwell (strained calf), linebacker Bobby Wagner (turf

Bryan Walters out, Doug Baldwin in for kickoff returns, Paul Richardson for punts Sunday at Carolina

As you can see and hear above, coach Pete Carroll was classy and with the proper perspective on this awful day in Western Washington. He began his post-practice comments at Seahawks headquarters today here in Renton with condolences and thoughts to the people of Marysville following the shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School this morning that left two students dead.

As for the far less important matters of football games:

Doug Baldwin has gone from angry to featured to now, for Sunday’s game at Carolina, multi-tasked.

It appears the Seahawks’ wide receiver will be the
