Rare weekend off for Seahawks, 8 days before game at San Diego; Sherman to stay put on left side

Happy weekend. The Seahawks have today and Sunday off from practice. They will be back on the field Monday in Renton, then get their union-mandated Tuesday off before the Sept. 14 game at San Diego. It’s the flip-side benefit of playing a Thursday game to open the NFL season.

Seattle came out of the game with just one injury, though it is an impacting one. Nickel back Jeremy Lane is going to miss a while, according to coach Pete Carroll, after he re-injured his groin in the third quarter of Thursday’s 36-16 win over Green Bay. Marcus Burley, acquired last

Seahawks’ opener Thursday is the champs’ only home primetime game; “I’ll let you guys speculate those reasons”

Happy NFL Opening Eve.

The Seahawks are finishing a light walk-through practice this morning here in Renton. Green Bay’s practice will presumably be more extensive, given the Packers did not practice at all yesterday as part of coach Mike McCarthy’s new practice plan this season of keeping his players off the field two days before every game.

I mentioned this on Twitter yesterday — and got a couple angry retorts from Packers fans: The Seahawks under coach Pete Carroll are 7-0 in home, primetime games with an average margin of victory of 18 points. Cornerback Richard Sherman barely had his

Seahawks sign WR/PR/KR Bryan Walters to active roster, so Earl Thomas may not be returning punts after all

All of you adverse to risk — at least when it comes to Seattle’s All-Pro safety being a standing target for opponents on 40-yard sprints right at him — rejoice!

The Seahawks have signed back wide receiver/punt returner/kick returner Bryan Walters to their active roster three days after releasing him among their final preseason cuts.

Walters is back on the practice field here at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton right now wearing his familiar No. 19.

The team announced the move about 90 minutes after Pete Carroll was asked during his weekly press conference today here at the Virginia

When Monday is a Thursday: Seahawks three days from opener

Happy Labor Day. Hope you have a chance to relax and enjoy — including as you read this, of course.

This is no holiday for the Seahawks or Packers. Yesterday was a Wednesday and today is a Thursday for them.

A normal practice week has been condensed and accelerated to a Sunday-through-Wednesday practice schedule for Thursday’s NFL opener between Seattle and Green Bay. So this afternoon’s workout at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center for the Seahawks will be like what a lighter, Thursday practice usually is with a Sunday game during the regular season.

Coach Pete Carroll will conduct his

Percy Harvin not on Seahawks’ trip to Oakland because of “personal matter”; eight others will not play in exhibition finale

That above might be the most we see of Seattle’s No. 24 tonight here in Oakland.

Seahawks starters are likely for cameos and not much more in the exhibition finale beginning at 7 p.m. (Channel 13, 710 AM and 97.3 FM radio in the Puget Sound area, with our live chat beginning at 6:30 p.m. PT on thenewstribune.com/sports). And no starter plays less in the exhibition season than #24 Marshawn Lynch, who graduated from Oakland Tech High School about a 10-minute drive from the Oakland Coliseum and then played for Cal in neighboring Berkeley. His only carries of the preseason

“Game”day in Oakland. Final Seahawks jobs to be determined tonight: “There’s stuff that’s in the balance”

The starters won’t get much more than a cameo, if that, tonight in Oakland. But the Seahawks have some issues to settle behind those guys in the final exhibition game before the opener against Green Bay a week from tonight at CenturyLink Field.

“This is a big final step for us … a lot of guys with opportunities. A lot of guys battling for spots,” coach Pete Carroll said. “It’s a highly competitive final opportunity. So it’s a big deal for us.

“We are hoping to show gives and (give) them the opportunity to make this club.”

Leave it “Always

Seahawks have backup-quarterback issue to settle in this short week before Thursday’s final exhibition at Oakland

The Seahawks get a second consecutive day off from practicing today. They will be back on the field at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center on Monday. There are three days of workouts in Renton this week before the team flies to Oakland for the fourth and final exhibition game.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Russell Wilson doesn’t play a down on Thursday, so that coach Pete Carroll and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell can split the entire game between Tarvaris Jackson and Terrelle Pryor. The Raiders came will a final determinant on who should be the primary backup quarterback, and on whether Seattle
