Marshall (hamstring) worked with the starting offense at Monday's practice, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. Working his way back into shape after suffering a slew of injuries the past 10 months, Marshall was held out of the preseason opener but finally seems to be practicing without limitations. While the idea of a regular spot with the first-team offense isn't totally out of the question, he's far from a lock to crack the 53-man roster. Tyler Lockett and Jaron Brown remain the favorites for playing time behind Doug Baldwin (knee), whose continued absence has freed up first-team reps for the likes of Marshall, Marcus Johnson and David Moore. The next big step for Marshall would be an appearance in Saturday's preseason game against the Chargers.
Marshall (hamstring) participated in portions of Friday's full-pads practice, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. Marshall has been unable to avoid the injury bug for the better part of the last year, tending to a sore shoulder, toe injury and left ankle sprain between August and October of 2017. The latter issue required season-ending surgery, and his previous squad (the Giants) eventually opted to move on from the veteran wide receiver just before the 2018 draft. He inked a deal with the Seahawks within weeks, but his activity in training camp has been limited by a hamstring concern. During Friday's session, Marshall didn't exactly run crisp routes, so the hammy may still be a hindrance as August dawns.
Marshall (hamstring) hasn't been participating in 11-on-11 work at training camp, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Marshall had season-ending ankle surgery in October and toe surgery at some point thereafter, but his absence from practice since signing with the Seahawks in late May has actually been attributed to a hamstring injury. With only $90,000 in guaranteed money on his one-year contract, the 34-year-old wide receiver needs to get on the practice field soon to have a decent shot at making the 53-man roster. Jaron Brown has emerged as the favorite to join Doug Baldwin (leg) and Tyler Lockett in three-wide formations.
Marshall (ankle, hamstring) likely will be cleared for the start of training camp, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Marshall hasn't participated in team drills since signing with the Seahawks on May 29, sidelined by a minor hamstring injury rather than any setback with the ankle issue that ended his 2017 campaign. Given that he's 34 years old and spent the offseason rehabbing from surgeries on his ankle and toe, Marshall will be susceptible to additional lower-body injuries and doesn't figure to look much like the player who put up 1,502 yards for the Jets in 2015. He's no lock to earn a roster spot in Seattle, where Tyler Lockett, Jaron Brown, Marcus Johnson and Amara Darboh are also competing for snaps and targets behind No. 1 receiver Doug Baldwin. The Seahawks brought Marshall in on a one-year, $1.105 million contract that includes only $90,000 guaranteed, per OverTheCap.
Marshall said Wednesday that he has been running pain-free on his surgically-repaired ankle for weeks, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. Not only is Marshall on the mend from ankle surgery, but the receiver recently revealed he's also recovering from toe surgery to address an injury that has been an issue since 2015, according to Henderson. Marshall was planning to wait until retirement to fix the toe, but it made sense to take care of the matter this offseason while he was already facing a lengthy recovery time from the ankle procedure. With both of these issues now mostly behind him, Marshall can direct his full attention to carving out a role in the Seahawks offense after signing a one-year deal with the team Tuesday.
