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

Pete Carroll’s tepid summation of Seahawks’ preseason opener fits the result

Pete Carroll gave an apt postgame summation of the Seahawks’ first exhibition game as Super Bowl champions, lost 21-16 at Denver while playing without three starters on the offensive line — and with quarterbacks Russell Wilson, Tarvaris Jackson and Terrelle Pryor running for their personal well-being far too often.

“We’re just surviving. We’re really surviving right now,” Carroll said of an offensive line that was without center Max Unger because he has a new groin injury, guard James Carpenter because he just got back from a calf injury and left tackle Russell Okung because he returned only Monday from toe

Quoting DE Cassius Marsh after rookie mini-camp

Here’s most of what Seahawks DE Cassius Marsh had to say after Day 2 of rookie mini-camp …

(On if he’ll be lobbying for some time at tight end after catching two TDs at UCLA…) “I’m just here to compete. I would love to. It would be my pleasure to, you know, in the red zone. There’s nothing like getting a sack but a touchdown is like a 1-B. That would be awesome but only if the coaches need that from me.” Read more »

The Seahawks picked up their first pass rusher of the draft by picking DE Cassius Marsh out of UCLA with the 108th overall pick. And, he’s a character.

Marsh said he was watching “The Last Samurai” with his bit bull, Boss, when his phone rang this morning. He had just woken up.

“I just hopped up out of my chair, man,” Marsh said. “I can’t even tell you how excited I am to get coached by coach Carroll and be a part of the world champs.”
