Seattle placed Blair (hamstring) on the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
Because training camp has yet to start, Blair is eligible to come off the PUP list any time between now and the end of preseason. The severity of the 22-year-old's hamstring injury is still unknown. Blair is expected to compete for a starting job in Seattle's secondary when healthy.
Coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Blair is nursing a hamstring injury, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
While the severity of Blair's injury isn't certain, the second-round rookie has missed practice both of the past two weeks, per Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune. If he can't make it back for the final day of minicamp Thursday, Blair's next chance to take the field won't arrive until the start of training camp in late July. When healthy, the Utah product is expected to compete for a starting job in the secondary.
The Seahawks selected Blair in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 47th overall.
Blair (6-foot-1, 195 pounds) is small for a safety but offers good range thanks to his 4.48-second 40 and 125-inch broad jump. Seattle might envision him as a centerfielder prospect to hopefully pick up Earl Thomas' snaps, though for whatever reason Blair was unable to make many plays on the ball at Utah.
