  • Seahawks' Marquise Blair: Nursing heel injury

    Blair sat out Saturday's practice due to a heel injury, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

    The 24-year-old apparently suffered the injury when he was kicked in the heel Friday, and it's not believed to be a serious issue. Blair is the frontrunner to open the season as Seattle's nickel safety.

  • Seahawks' Ahkello Witherspoon: Slated for No. 1 role

    Witherspoon (knee) is expected to be the Seahawks' No. 1 cornerback this season, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

    Witherspoon never quite got his footing in San Francisco due to a crowded secondary and injuries. He's healthy at training camp and is ready to compete for the top job. The Seahawks desperately need him to step into the No. 1 role after Shaquill Griffin left for Jacksonville. So far in camp, the 26-year-old has been sticky in coverage, using his athleticism -- he's 6-foot-3 with 33-inch arms and a 40-inch vertical -- to shut down the team's top receivers. D.J. Reed is expected to secure the other top cornerback role.

  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: Aiming for No. 3 spot

    Swain is competing for the No. 3 wide receiver role during training camp, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

    When David Moore left for Carolina in March, the door opened for Swain -- who posted 13-159-2 line over 16 games as a rookie -- to capture a starting job on the outside opposite DK Metcalf. However, the Seahawks' selection of D'Wayne Eskridge in the second round made that path less certain. Eskridge has yet to participate in training camp due to a nagging toe injury, so Swain, a 2019 sixth-round pick, has a head start. Nevertheless, Eskridge should have an advantage once he's healthy because of his draft position.

  • Seahawks' Marquise Blair: Battling for nickel role

    Blair (knee) is the frontrunner for the nickel safety role heading into the 2021 season, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Blair tore the ACL in his right knee during Week 2 of the 2020 season, marking the second ACL tear of his career. Nevertheless, the 2019 second-round pick bounced back quickly and has been on the field for all of training camp. He has lined up at nickel, strong safety and free safety during practice, though Jamal Adams and Quandre Diggs are locked into the latter two positions, respectively, However, the nickel role is up for grabs. Blair is the front-runner while Ugo Amadi poses notable competition.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Feeling good in camp

    Penny indicated Thursday that he's down to 223 pounds after playing at around 234 pounds during his time at San Diego State, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. "I feel fast. I feel amazing," said Penny

    Penny hasn't lived up to his first-round billing in the 2018 NFL Draft thus far and will likely have to settle for a supporting role behind Chris Carson, but he did post reasonably good per-carry averages in his first two seasons at 4.9 and 5.7. He's in the fourth year of his deal with Seattle and it will be a contract year following the team's decision to decline his fifth-year option. It appears he's healthy and would be the likely candidate to step into the lead role should Carson falter or miss time.

  • Seahawks' Pier-Olivier Lestage: Placed on NFI list

    The Seahawks placed Lestage (sports hernia) on the non-football injury list Wednesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Lestage underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia in June, so his presence on the NFI list isn't surprising. Seattle has yet to provide a timeline for the rookie lineman's return to the field.

  • Seahawks' Jamal Adams: Takes part in walkthrough

    Adams didn't practice Wednesday but participated in the team walkthrough, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    The 25-year-old reported to training camp Tuesday as he continues to negotiate a contract extension with the Seahawks. According to Liz Matthews of USA Today, Adams is taking things slow early in camp after undergoing offseason surgery, though there doesn't seem to be any doubt about his availability for the start of the regular season.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Full participant to open camp

    Penny (knee) was a full participant during the first practice of training camp Wednesday, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

    The 25-year-old avoided the PUP list to open camp and is apparently fully healthy after undergoing a cleanup procedure during the offseason that sidelined him for June minicamp. It's a make-or-break year for Penny, who was limited to three games in 2020 and is entering the final year of his rookie deal. He's poised to begin the season as Seattle's No. 2 tailback behind starter Chris Carson.

  • Seahawks' D'Wayne Eskridge: Attempting to get past toe issue

    Head coach Pete Carroll said Eskridge is tending to a nagging toe injury, but he's resumed running as the Seahawks attempt to get him healthy, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

    A 2021 second-round pick, Eskridge dealt with the same issue during mandatory minicamp back in June, so it's a bit concerning that it lingers more than a month and a half later. Currently residing on the PUP list, he'll enter the sweepstakes for the No. 3 wide receiver role in Seattle once he's able to join his teammates at practice. Eskridge's primary competition in camp and the preseason will be incumbent Freddie Swain.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Avoids PUP list

    Penny (knee) isn't on the PUP list to begin training camp, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

    Even if he's a limited participant initially, Penny's ability to avoid the PUP list is an encouraging sign after he was held out of June minicamp. He had a cleanup procedure earlier this offseason on his left knee, the same one in which he suffered an ACL tear in December 2019. Despite playing just three games in his first season back from the injury, Penny now has a shot to win the second spot on the depth chart, as Seattle's other options behind starter Chris Carson are DeeJay Dallas, Travis Homer (calf), Alex Collins and a pair of players who have yet to play an NFL snap (Josh Johnson and Cameron Scarlett). Penny should have a chance to establish some value in the final year of his rookie contract, though he's unlikely to ever live up to his first-round pedigree.

  • Seahawks' Travis Homer: Lands on PUP list

    The Seahawks placed Homer (calf) on the PUP list to start training camp, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

    Homer also missed time during June minicamp due to the calf injury, so his status warrants monitoring. Being forced to sit out a significant portion of training camp could affect Homer's chances of beating out DeeJay Dallas and Alex Collins for the No. 3 backfield role behind Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny (knee).

  • Seahawks' D'Wayne Eskridge: Placed on PUP

    The Seahawks placed Eskridge (toe) on the PUP list Wednesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    With the toe injury also limiting him in June minicamp, Eskridge isn't off to a great start in his quest to win the No. 3 receiver role. Granted, he still has a month and a half to prepare for Week 1, and competition isn't exactly fierce with Freddie Swain being the likely top alternative.
