Pete Carroll on Marshawn Lynch’s fitness, the center competition, Kasen Williams and much more

Coach Pete Carroll thinks Marshawn Lynch is in great shape. (Here was the running back on Thursday at Seahawks minicamp, making his first appearance on the field since February’s Super Bowl):

 

Carroll’s not worried about settling the starting competition sooner rather than later. He’s excited to see how Kasen Williams may fit into the wide-receiver mix.

All that and more here below, the transcript of all Carroll said Thursday at the end of the Seahawks’ mandatory minicamp, their last time on the field as a team until training camp begins July 31:

Russell Wilson says insurance policy “is just smart,” “hopeful” to have deal by training camp; Marshawn Lynch present but idling in minicamp

Russell Wilson confirmed that yes, he did take out a rich insurance policy against injury for the 2015 season in the event the Seahawks’ quarterback ends up playing it under only his $1.5 million base salary to end his rookie contract from 2012.

“That’s just being smart,” he said of the policy, shrugging his shoulders after the Seahawks’ only day of mandatory minicamp spent on the practice field. “If I do have to play this season (without signing-bonus cash from a new, long-term contract), that’s just being smart. That’s all that is, really.

Michael Bennett’s only kinda-sorta OTA protest; Paul Richardson’s progress, more from OTA practice #8

The Seahawks just finished the eighth of 10 organized-team-activity practices on the field here in Renton. How relatively casual did this one feel to the Tuesday ones I witnessed the previous two weeks?:

Sherman spoke to the media afterwards — and chuckled when asked if he’s been talking to teammate Michael Bennett, the defensive end who has skipped these voluntary practices after saying

Seahawks bring back Dwaine Board an assistant D-line coach, add Chris Cash and Andre Curtis as assistants in secondary

The Seahawks announced today they have brought back out of a Bay Area high school their defensive line coach from 2003-08 Dwaine Board to be the assistant defensive line coach. They also hired Chris Cash to be an assistant coach in the secondary working with cornerbacks and Andre Curtis to be an assistant coach with the safeties.

Since leaving the Seahawks’ staff following Mike Holmgren’s exit as coach at the end of the 2008 season, Board has been an assistant with the Raiders for two seasons, the Browns in 2011-12 and for St. Francis High School in Mountain View, California, in 2013-14.

Seahawks put rookie DE Cassius Marsh on IR, sign TE RaShaun Allen, CB Steven Terrell from practice squad

The Seahawks have done the expected to get a backup tight end on the active roster for tomorrow’s game at St. Louis: they have placed rookie defensive end Cassius Marsh on the season-ending injured-reserve list and signed tight end RaShaun Allen from the practice squad.

Seattle needing Allen is a sign that Luke Willson, questionable for the Rams game because of a groin injury, won’t be able to play and Cooper Helfet will be making his first career start.

The Seahawks also signed defensive back Steven Terrell off their practice squad for Sunday’s game for the second consecutive week. Terrell,

Cassius Marsh latest D-lineman to get hurt; Seahawks down to one healthy TE, Cooper Helfet

Wide receiver Percy Harvin did not practice today because of a thigh injury. But before we sound alarms recall that last week the Seahawks also gave him Thursday off from practice and listed him with a thigh injury then, too, before he played against Dallas.

The newer concern that could affect Sunday’s game at St. Louis is now two injured defensive linemen who have been seeing time in the rotation as early as the first drives of recent games: end Cassius Marsh was added to the list today with a foot injury and tackle Jordan Hill missed his second consecutive

Impressive rookie DE Cassius Marsh injured in Seahawks practice, will have MRI on knee; Percy Harvin just fine

Fourth-round draft pick Cassius Marsh, whom coach Pete Carroll singled out last week in Denver for excelling in the Seahawks’ exhibition opener, went down in the practice that just ended with a knee injury. A team spokesman said the rookie from UCLA will have a magnetic resonance imaging exam on the knee to determine the extent of the damage. But it didn’t look good.

Marsh — whom his UCLA coach Jim Mora said plays like “a wild horse rider at times” because of his relentless energy — got tangled with Lemuel Jeanpierre, who was playing guard today, and defensive lineman

Seahawks back at practice this morning for Friday’s exhibition against San Diego

Heading back to Renton this morning to begin another condensed week of training-camp practices before Friday’s second exhibition game at home against San Diego. It’s the Seahawks’ next-to-last public practice of the preseason — and, in fact, the last public ones of the year at the VMAC — and because it is on a sunny weekend there are likely to be a few (thousand) folks there today.

I will be watching to see how much the three starting offensive linemen who missed the preseason opener Thursday at Denver practice today and tomorrow: center Max Unger (a new groin injury), left
