Position Listing
Chris Carson
News
Carson was sidelined at Monday's practice as he was contained to conditioning work, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

There's been no indication that Carson is dealing with an injury, unlike rookie Rashaad Penny, who was removed due to an undisclosed issue. Carson may have been given the day off, but the Seahawks were nonetheless down three running backs Monday (also, C.J. Prosise - hip). As the team prepares for Saturday's preseason matchup against the Chargers, coach Pete Carroll is certain to shed light on the state of his RB room.

Jake Martin
No Updates
Quinton Jefferson
News
Jefferson signed his exclusive-rights tender with the Seahawks on Wednesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Jefferson received his tender earlier this offseason and is now set to remain in Seattle in 2018. The 2016 fifth-round pick notched seven tackles and one sack in six games for the Seahawks a season ago.

Ricky Ali'ifua
News
Ali'ifua inked a deal with Seattle on Friday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

After not being selected in the 2017 NFL Draft, Ali'ifua signed briefly with the Chiefs but was waived before the season began. The 26-year-old is entering a deep but injured unit, so he's a long shot for a depth role and more suitable for the practice squad.

Amara Darboh
News
Coach Pete Carroll considers Darboh day-to-day with a hip injury, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Darboh is competing with or one of the final wideout spots in Seattle, so a quick return may be vital for his chances. The second-year pro didn't make a catch in Thursday's preseason game, but he'll have extra time to recover with Seattle's next contest Saturday against the Chargers.

Injury
Hip - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
C.J. Prosise
News
Coach Pete Carroll considers Prosise "day-to-day" with his hip injury, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Prosise was held out of Thursday's preseason opener against the Colts due to a hip flexor that plagued him in practice last week. The injury is yet another in a line of issues that have hindered him during two pro campaigns, as he's been able to suit up only 11 times to date. The fact he remains on his rookie deal indicates a roster spot is all but assured, but Prosise may have a difficult time wresting reps from 2018 first-round pick Rashaad Penny and second-year back Chris Carson.

Injury
Hip - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Gerald Holmes
No Updates
D.J. Alexander
News
Alexander (shoulder) was unable to participate in OTAs or minicamp, Stacy Rost of ESPN 710 Seattle reports.

It isn't clear when or how Alexander got hurt, but head coach Pete Carroll expects the 2016 Pro-Bowl special-teamer to be OK for training camp this summer.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
K.J. Wright
News
Wright (groin) returned to practice Tuesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Wright missed just a few days because of the groin issue, so the initial minor tag for the injury held true. The veteran outside linebacker should work back into the first-team defense and is expected to retain his starting role after posting 71 tackles during 2017.

Caleb Scott
No Updates
Delano Hill
News
Hill (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Hill is expected to be ready for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers. He'll likely be used mainly as a special teams contributor.

Michael Dickson
No Updates
Tanner McEvoy
News
McEvoy (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

McEvoy will be held out for the first time of the campaign, a decision that was likely on the horizon after he played a season-low six offensive snaps in the Week 16 loss to the Cowboys. Amara Darboh and David Moore will dress as the Seahawks' reserve wideouts behind starters Doug Baldwin, Paul Richardson and Tyler Lockett.

Josh Forrest
News
Forrest signed a contract with the Seahawks on Thursday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Forrest played in two games with Seattle in 2017, primarily in a special teams role. He sprained his foot in the latter half of the season and ended the year on IR. He'll have a chance to earn a roster spot once again in a depth linebacker and special teams role.

Kam Chancellor
News
Chancellor (neck) was placed on the reserve PUP list Thursday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic Seattle reports.

Chancellor sustained a neck injury last season, leading to his placement on the PUP list. The once great safety was a dominant player for the Seahawks, but he announced his intention to retire as a result of his injury a month ago and it's likely only a matter of time before that becomes official.

Injury
Neck - Physically Unable to Perform
Doug Baldwin
News
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll reiterated Tuesday that he expects Baldwin (knee) to be ready for Week 1 against Denver, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Baldwin aggravated a sore knee at the beginning of training camp and now seems destined to miss the rest of camp and probably all of the preseason. The Seahawks have declined to elaborate on the exact nature of his injury, but they have been adamant about Baldwin making it back in time for Week 1. Despite the optimism coming out of Seattle, this situation will need to be carefully monitored throughout August and into September. Tyler Lockett and Jaron Brown are the leading candidates to take on more targets if Baldwin ends up missing time during the regular season or simply isn't the best version of himself.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Nick Vannett
News
Vannett brought in two of three targets for 20 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 19-17 preseason loss to the Colts.

Vannett lined up as the Seahawks' top tight end with Ed Dickson (groin) sitting out. Jimmy Graham is in Green Bay now, so the Seahawks will need another pass-catching tight end to fill the void of his 27 red-zone targets, and Vannett will battle Dickson for some of those chances.

Poona Ford
No Updates
Jake Pugh
No Updates
Cyril Grayson
News
Grayson and the Seahawks agreed to a reserve/future deal Tuesday.

Grayson spent his rookie season on the Seahawks' practice squad. He figured to have some work ahead of him when the team picked him up, as he had not played organized football since his senior year of high school in 2011. However, he was a seven-time All-American and four-time national champion as a member of the LSU track team, so the athletic ability is still there. It remains to be seen if he has done enough work to earn a role with the team in 2018.

Keenan Reynolds
News
Head coach Pete Carroll said Reynolds "lit it up" during Tuesday's mandatory minicamp.

Reynolds was able to get more looks during practice since top wideout Doug Baldwin was given a day of rest. The 23-year-old receiver hasn't suited up for a game since being picked by Baltimore in the sixth round of the 2016 draft. It was the first day of minicamp, so it's too early to make predictions on where Reynolds could fit in, but Carroll said he'll be given a good shot. With Baldwin, Tyler Lockett, Brandon Marshall and Jaron Brown looking like locks for the top spots, however, it's likely Reynolds won't rise past a depth role.

Tedric Thompson
News
Thompson posted three solo tackles in Thursday's 19-17 preseason loss the the Colts.

Thompson had two regular-season defensive snaps under his belt before Thursday's game, so getting him a solid number of reps was crucial. The 23-year-old is competing against Maurice Alexander (hip) for a possible starting safety job if Earl Thomas continues his holdout or is traded.

Jason Myers
News
Myers made a 43-yard field goal in Thursday's 19-17 preseason loss to the Colts.

Myers has the tough task of battling Sebastian Janikowski for the starting kicker position. Janikowski was given a $600,000 signing bonus while Myers' base salary is $705,000, so the cards are stacked against Myers versus the seasoned veteran.

Jeremy Boykins
News
Boykins signed a contract with Seattle on Thursday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Boykins went undrafted in 2017 and was injured in the preseason, so he never saw the field as a rookie. He'll face steep competition in Seattle, but he'll have an opportunity to earn a depth secondary and special teams position with the club.

Isaiah Battle
News
Battle injured his knee and won't return to Thursday's preseason game against the Colts.

The extent of Battle's injury isn't clear, so it's hard to guess how much time he may miss. The fourth-year vet is competing for one of the top backup jobs at tackle.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Avery Young
News
Young (undisclosed) reverted to injured reserve after clearing waivers Thursday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Young has had a hard time solidifying a spot on an NFL roster and has yet to play in a regular-season game. The 25-year-old had short stints with the Saints, Dolphins and Buccaneers before coming to Seattle.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Barkevious Mingo
News
Mingo likely will play strong-side linebacker in Seattle's 4-3 base defense, while serving as an edge rusher on passing downs, ESPN.com's Brady Henderson reports.

The sixth overall pick in the 2013 draft, Mingo enjoyed the best season of his career last year in Indianapolis, piling up 47 tackles, two sacks, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in 16 games. He often was asked to drop into coverage on passing downs, but the Seahawks plan to give him more opportunities to get after the quarterback. General manager John Schneider said Mingo was the team's top priority among external free agents, perhaps hinting at a role similar to the one Bruce Irvin occupied from 2013 to 2015. Irvin had 115 tackles, 14 sacks and three interceptions in 42 regular-season games during that stretch, with his versatility allowing him to stay on the field alongside fellow edge rushers Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril (neck). Mingo won't have quite as much competition for snaps, potentially making him a huge bargain on a two-year, $6.8 million contract.

Ed Dickson
News
Dickson (groin) will be placed on the Non-Football Injury list for the beginning of training camp, Derek Lewis of 247 Sports reports.

After initially being reported that Dickson would miss time to start camp, it's now clear that Dickson's injury is significant enough to warrant him being kept off the 90-man roster for the time being. The setback will mean the potential Week 1 starter doesn't have a chance to solidify a role for himself early on, opening the door for Nick Vannett or Will Dissly to work their way up the depth chart the next couple weeks.

Injury
Groin - Out for Week 1 at Denver
Shamar Stephen
News
Stephen is expected to start at defensive tackle in 2018, Bryan Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Although Stephen is still rehabbing a meniscus injury he suffered in the divisional round of the playoffs, he's in line to jump Nazair Jones (ankle) on the depth chart and take over as a starter. A 2014 seventh-round pick, Stephen signed with the Seahawks on March 24 after a season in which he accrued 28 tackles (nine solo) in 15 games. Stephen hasn't worked much as a full-time starter in his career, so it'll be interesting to see what kind of upside he flashes with extended opportunity.

Injury
Knee - Meniscus - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Maurice Alexander
News
Alexander suffered a hip flexor strain during practice this week, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Alexander recently returned to practice after recovering from offseason shoulder injury, but the injury bug has hit the safety again, and it looks like he will be out for an indefinite period of time. Expect an update on Alexander's status at some point over the next few days.

Injury
Hip - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Ethan Pocic
News
Head coach Pete Carroll has been impressed by Pocic in offseason workouts, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports. "[Pocic] came back 20 pounds heavier after a really great offseason of work that we really wanted him to do and he's just carried it off and did a beautiful job," Carroll said Thursday.

Pocic injured his knee in the Seahawks' 2017 season finale, so it's great news that his offseason wasn't completely derailed by any sort of rehab program. If he can stay healthy, the 2017 second-rounder should be considered a favorite to open the 2018 season as a first-string guard.

J.D. McKissic
News
McKissic rushed one time for minus-1 yard and hauled in two passes for 14 yards in Thursday's 19-17 preseason loss to the Colts. He also returned two kicks for 59 yards and two punts for minus-1 yard.

McKissic didn't shine in any category, but he wasn't given much to work with in the ground game either. Furthermore, the third-year pro likely won't be used as a return man during the regular season due to the presence of Tyler Lockett, so those contributions may be negligible. It's a crowded backfield already, so McKissic will need to make a significant impact in the next few games to secure a final roster spot.

Dontae Johnson
News
Johnson (foot) passed his physical Saturday per the NFL Media transaction log.

Johnson was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list prior to training camp after breaking his foot during minicamp last month. The injury required surgery, but his successful physical indicates he could be in line to return to practice relatively soon. He figures to compete with Shaquill Griffin and Byron Maxwell for a role in the Seahawks' secondary.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Tom Johnson
News
Johnson signed a one-year, $2.7 million contract with the Seahawks on Friday, Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network reports.

Seattle is known to be in the market for defensive linemen and so far it seems the team is looking to save money at the position. Johnson comes over from Minnesota after making 62 regular-season starts for the Vikings over the past four seasons, racking up 107 tackles and 16 sacks in the process. He doesn't have a lot of competition for a starting spot as the Seahawks' roster currently stands considering only Jarran Reed and Nazair Jones (ankle) are the only other defensive tackles under contract for 2018.

Damore'ea Stringfellow
News
Stringfellow signed a contract with the Seahawks on Monday, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Stringfellow went undrafted back in 2017, spending short stints with the Dolphins and Jets. However, he never saw action in a regular-season game and was relegated to practice-squad duty for much of the year. Stringfellow was brought in on a tryout basis by Seattle over the last few days and apparently showed enough upside to earn a deal. He'll join the Seahawks for offseason workouts and potentially training camp, though Stringfellow still has an uphill battle to make the final roster.

Clayton Wilson
Injury
Undisclosed - Physically Unable to Perform
No Updates
Frank Clark
News
Clark (wrist) practiced at full speed Sunday, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

It was a quick recovery for Clark, who had wrist surgery in June, and his snap count for Saturday's game against the Chargers will be even more telling. Clark will log a hefty workload this campaign now that Michael Bennett is in Philly and Cliff Avril (neck) retired. The fourth-year pro will be ready for the challenge after racking up 19 sacks over the last two seasons.

Alex McGough
No Updates
Duane Brown
News
Brown signed a three-year, $36.5 million contract extension with the Seahawks on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Brown started nine games for the Seahawks last season after coming over in a trade from Houston. Assuming he continues to perform, the veteran tackle is now set to protect Russell Wilson's blind side through the 2021 campaign.

Lorenzo Jerome
News
Jerome signed a contract with the Seahawks on Monday, John Boyle of Seahawks.com reports.

Jerome recorded three tackles in four games with the 49ers last season before being released in early October. He'll add depth at safety for the Seahawks throughout training camp, but he could be a longshot to make the 53-man roster.

Neiko Thorpe
News
Thorpe (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Colts.

Thorpe has been dealing with an ankle injury since being carted off the field in Week 2. His absence will affect the Seahawks' depth at cornerback, with Justin Coleman in line to see additional snaps behind starter Richard Sherman.

Injury
Wrist - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Emmanuel Beal
No Updates
David Moore
News
Moore secured both of his targets for 35 yards in Thursday's 19-17 preseason loss to the Colts.

The second-year pro is looking to make a statement this preseason in order to secure one of the final wideout spots.

Shaquill Griffin
News
Griffin posted 59 tackles, one sack, 15 pass breakups and one interception through 15 games in his 2017 rookie season.

Griffin was the Seahawks' top corner after Richard Sherman (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve. He answered the call exceptionally, helping stabilize the team's short-handed secondary to a degree. Given his success this season, the UCF product will likely be given every opportunity to open 2018 as the No. 2 corner opposite Sherman.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Tyler Lockett
News
Lockett posted one reception for 14 yards in Thursday's 19-17 preseason loss to the Colts.

Lockett didn't have many chances to shine with just one target, but it could be a big season for him after Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson departed for the Packers and Redskins, respectively. The fourth-year pro mustered 45 receptions for 555 yards and two touchdowns in 2017, but his role could be affected again by incoming wideouts Brandon Marshall and Jaron Brown.

Sebastian Janikowski
News
Janikowski (hip) made a 53-yard field goal during Tuesday's mandatory minicamp, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

The 40-year-old kicker was kept out of OTAs, but his hip appeared to be healthy as he made long field goals during live drills. Janikowski is assumed to be the Week 1 starter, despite the Seahawks bringing in former three-year Jacksonville kicker Jason Myers. However, Janikowski missed the entire 2017 season with back issues, so staying off the injury list is a top priority. During his last full season in 2016, Janikowski missed just one of 26 field-goal attempts under 50 yards.

Elijah Battle
No Updates
Skyler Phillips
No Updates
Mike Davis
News
Davis rushed six times for 25 yards and secured both of his targets for three yards in the Seahawks' 19-17 preseason loss to the Colts on Thursday.

Davis is believed to potentially be on the outside looking in for a roster spot in Seattle's crowded backfield, but head coach Pete Carroll is apparently willing to let the fourth-year pro have an equitable opportunity to make his case. Davis' six rush attempts were second only to rookie Rashaad Penny on the night, while his average of 4.2 yards per tote was serviceable. Davis may need to truly stand out during the remaining three exhibitions to secure a spot on the final roster, a daunting proposition considering his competition includes the talented duo of C.J. Prosise and J.D. McKissic.

Willie Beavers
News
Beavers was waived by the Patriots on Saturday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Beavers has struggled to make a strong impression with New England. There's a chance he'll land elsewhere, though.

Khalid Hill
News
Hill (shoulder) went unclaimed on waivers and reverted to IR on Tuesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

This was an expected move for the undrafted rookie out of Michigan. The Seahawks don't have a sure thing at fullback, so Hill will still have a shot, albeit a long one, to make the 53-man roster once he's healthy.

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Tyrone Swoopes
News
Swoopes was promoted to the Seahawks' 53-man roster Saturday.

Swoopes has been on the team's practice squad since being waived at roster cutdowns in September. The 23-year-old could see some offensive snaps Sunday since tight ends Luke Willson (ankle) and Nick Vannett (back) are both listed as questionable.

Austin Calitro
News
Calitro agreed to a contract Wednesday with the Seahawks, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

Calitro spent some time on the Seahawks' practice squad last season, so the linebacker already has some familiarity with the organization. He also spent time with the Jets, 49ers and Browns last season, but has yet to make his NFL regular-season debut.

Russell Wilson
News
Wilson expects to sign a franchise tag with the Seahawks once his contract expires after the 2019 season, Kole Musgrove of USA Today reports.

Wilson's contract negotiations with the Seahawks in 2015 weren't especially amicable. With monster deals being penned around the league -- quarterback Matt Ryan recently signed a record-setting, five-year, $150 million extension with $100 million guaranteed -- there's reason to believe that will happen again. Talks about a new pact will likely commence after Packers QB Aaron Rodgers inks a long-term extension, but sources close to Wilson expect him to finish his current contract and be franchise-tagged for the 2020 season. Wilson's first franchise tag would cost the Seahawks $30.34 million, a second one in 2021 would cost $36.41 million and a third one in 2022 would cost $52.43 million. It's a long way out, but those numbers are staggering and possibly crippling to Seattle's payroll. Of course, this would all be alleviated with a successful extension by March 2020.

Tre Madden
News
Madden (calf) returned to practice Wednesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Madden has resided on injured reserve since early November and isn't eligible to play Sunday against the Cardinals, but it appears the Seahawks will make him one of two players designated to return from IR this season. If Seattle qualifies for the playoffs and the fullback checks out fine during his subsequent practices, Madden could suit up for a potential wild-card round matchup and any postseason contests that might follow.

Tevon Mutcherson
News
Mutcherson suffered a knee sprain in the second half of Thursday's preseason game against the Colts, The Seattle Times reports.

Coach Pete Carroll believed it was a minor sprain for Mutcherson, who did not record a tackle prior to the injury. The 26-year-old signed a deal with the Seahawks in May and is battling for a roster spot as a reserve safety.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Branden Jackson
News
Jackson made four tackles (two solo) in Thursday's 19-17 preseason loss to the Colts.

Jackson played 12 games for the Seahawks in 2017 and recorded 11 tackles and 0.5 sacks. When the defensive corps is healthy, Jackson will be a backup to Dion Jordan (shin). However, Jordan may not be ready for Week 1, so Jackson and rookie Rasheem Green will battle for the starting job.

Austin Davis
News
Davis will compete with Alex McGough for the Seahawks' backup quarterback job during training camp, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Davis has experience and incumbent status on his side in the job battle, likely conferring him the early advantage heading into training camp. Despite his undersized stature, Russell Wilson has yet to miss a game in his NFL career, which may embolden the Seahawks to keep only two quarterbacks on the roster when the season begins. Davis ended up appearing in three contests in 2017, but played just five offensive snaps.

Shaquem Griffin
News
Griffin made nine tackles (six solo), including one for a loss, in Thursday's 19-17 preseason loss to the Colts.

Griffin was surrounded by hype as the first player with one hand to be drafted into the NFL, and he's presently looking like a fifth-round steal. His stellar performance won't guarantee him additional time when the season begins, however, as the Seahawks are set at outside linebacker with D.J. Alexander and K.J. Wright. Consequently, special teams may ultimately be Griffin's primary path to getting on the field at the onset of his professional career.

Germain Ifedi
News
Ifedi (finger) was a full participant at Tuesday's walk-through, John Doyle of the Seahawks' official website reports.

The Seahawks held Ifedi out of Monday's walk-through, but it appears they were just being cautious. He appears on track to play Thursday against the Cardinals assuming he avoids a setback.

Justin Britt
News
Britt did not participate in Saturday's practice due to a back injury, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Britt was believed to have tweaked his back during warmups Saturday, so his back injury likely lacks much severity. It wouldn't be a shock to see Britt make a timely return to practice, though Joey Hunt could see additional run at center in the meantime.

Injury
Back - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Jamarco Jones
News
Jones suffered a high-ankle sprain in Thursday's 19-17 preseason loss to the Colts, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Jones was selected by the Seahawks in the fifth round of this year's draft to hopefully add depth to a brutal offensive line. Gaining the starting gig outright over Germain Ifedi seems plausible, however, considering how Ifedi has frustrated the coaching staff with penalties during training camp and preseason. Jones' injury was called "serious" by coach Pete Carroll, so that competition will be stalled for the time being.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Joey Ivie
News
Ivie signed a contract with the Seahawks on Monday.

Ivie has been a free agent since being released by the Falcons after reaching an injury settlement with the team back in June. The defensive tackle should be considered a long shot to make the Seahawks' final roster.

Dion Jordan
News
Jordan's (shin) status for Week 1 against the Broncos is unclear at this point, Brady Henderson of ESPN reports.

Jordan continues to recover from a stress injury in his leg that led to his placement on the preseason PUP list in late July. It appears as though Jordan is a ways away from retaking the field for the Seahawks. Seattle has looked into adding a veteran as an insurance policy, but Carroll noted that Jordan should be ready for Week 1 if he can avoid setbacks during his recovery.

Injury
Shin - Physically Unable to Perform
Malik McDowell
News
Clarifying an earlier report by Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times, McDowell (concussion) has been placed on the Non-Football Injury list rather than the injured reserve list, per NFL Communications.

McDowell was waived with a non-football injury designation Thursday, landing on the NFI list after he went unclaimed. Given the severity of his concussion following an ATV accident last offseason, there's a significant chance that the second-year player will never see the field in the NFL.

Justin Coleman
News
Coleman signed his second-round tender Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Coleman will remain in Seattle in 2018 after recording 43 tackles, 1.5 sacks and two interceptions last season. The 25-year-old could see an even larger role in the Seattle defense during the upcoming campaign in light of the departure of Richard Sherman.

Akeem King
News
King signed a contract with the Seahawks on Friday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

King was a member of Seattle's practice squad in 2017 and was placed on practice squad-injured reserve in November with an undisclosed injury.

Marcus Henry
No Updates
Joey Hunt
News
Hunt was promoted from the practice squad to the Seahawks' active roster Tuesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Hunt spent nine games on the Seahawks' active roster last season, including one start. Expect the 2016 sixth-round selection to back up Justin Britt for the remainder of the season.

Rasheem Green
News
Green generated seven tackles (three solo) and 1.5 sacks in Thursday's 19-17 preseason loss to the Colts.

The rookie third-round pick was a necessary selection for the Seahawks, as they traded Michael Bennett to Philly and Cliff Avril (neck) won't be able to play again. He came out of the gates firing, sacking QB Andrew Luck on his second drive. Veteran DE Dion Jordan (shin) may not be be ready for Week 1, so Green could become a contributor immediately.

Tre Flowers
News
Flowers has been working as a cornerback with the top defensive unit throughout training camp, Gregg Bell of The News Tribune reports.

Flowers has been getting this opportunity while Byron Maxwell (hip) remains sidelined. However, the rookie fifth-round pick is excelling in his conversion from safety to corner, and he's been practicing against six-time Pro Bowler Brandon Marshall to get a feel for his new position. The real test will be how he performs against the Colts on Thursday night, when he's expected to log a high snap count. If he has a solid preseason, Flowers may push the 30-year-old Maxwell for a starting role in 2018.

Tyler Ott
No Updates
Will Dissly
News
Dissly hauled in both of his targets for 19 yards in Thursday's 19-17 preseason loss to the Colts.

Dissly also showed glimpses of exceptional run blocking, which is why the Seahawks drafted him in the fourth round. He likely won't be a fantasy contributor this season as the third-string tight end, but Dissly could form into a vital edge-sealer for an untapped backfield.

Jordan Roos

Nazair Jones
News
Coach Pete Carroll considers Jones "day-to-day" with a hip injury, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Jones sat out of Thursday's preseason opener against the Colts with this injury. The second-year pro generated 19 tackles (10 solo) and two sacks in a reserve role last year. He'll battle Tom Johnson, who will be 34 years old when the season commences, for a starting spot in Week 1.

Injury
Hip - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Malik Turner
News
Turner has signed a deal with the Seahawks, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Turner, an undrafted rookie, played college ball at Illinois, where he recorded 143 catches for 1,804 yards and 10 touchdowns over a four-year career. He boasts good size for a wideout, but faces a steep uphill climb to crack the Seahawks' final 53-man roster.

Kyle Carter
News
Carter was claimed off of waivers by the Seahawks on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Carter was one of a few tight ends who were added to the Seahawks roster Thursday while top option Ed Dickson (groin) is sidelined. Look for Carter to compete for a backup tight end and special teams role in Seattle.

Rashaad Penny
News
Penny (undisclosed) left Monday's practice early, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

The rookie running back presumably suffered an injury of some sort, but offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said he doesn't think it's anything serious. An extended run of practice absences would be problematic for Penny's fantasy outlook, considering Chris Carson refuses to give up the starting job without a fight.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Byron Maxwell
News
Maxwell suffered a hip flexor injury and may be sidelined for Thursday's preseason opener against the Colts, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

There doesn't appear to be much concern regarding the severity of Maxwell's injury, but missing a preseason game isn't a huge deal for a veteran cornerback like him. Expect another update on Maxwell's status to come Thursday, and if he is ultimately ruled out, Tre Flowers would be in line to start.

Injury
Groin - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
George Fant
News
Fant (knee) is participating in Monday's practice with a brace on his injured knee, Mike Vorel of the Seattle Times reports.

Fant is reportedly moving well with the brace on his knee, which stems from an August 2017 ACL tear. He's expected to be eased back into action throughout training camp, but he'll ultimately compete for a starting spot on the offensive line, barring any setbacks.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Jaron Brown
News
Brown recorded one reception for nine yards in Thursday's 19-17 preseason loss to the Colts.

Brown signed with the Seahawks in March and is battling Tyler Lockett and Brandon Marshall for a top-three role. The 28-year-old can stretch the field with his speed, while his 6-foot-3 frame can hoist him over defenders when necessary. Marshall sat out Thursday while both Lockett and Brown logged limited reps, so the receiver picture didn't get any clearer.

Bobby Wagner
News
Wagner (hamstring) has been a limited participant in the opening days of training camp, Mike Vorel of the Seattle Times reports.

It isn't entirely clear why Wagner hasn't been a full participant, but his limitations may be related to the hamstring injury that prevented the linebacker from taking part in the Pro Bowl this past winter. In any case, there doesn't appear to be any concern over Wagner's availability for the regular season.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
D.J. Fluker
News
Fluker received significant work at right guard with the first-team offense during Wednesday's minicamp practice, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

This was a good sign for the offensive lineman, given Fluker's limited availability throughout OTAs due to knee soreness. He inked a one-year, $1.5 million deal with Seattle in the offseason and should get the opportunity to battle for a starting role throughout training camp.

J.R. Sweezy
News
Sweezy suffered an ankle injury last week, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

It appears that Sweezy has been sidelined since rolling his ankle last week, and given he's been out for that long, chances are he will not play in Thursday's preseason opener.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Rees Odhiambo
News
Odhiambo (hand) was limited during Thursday's practice session, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Odhiambo is returning from a hand injury that kept him out of minicamps in June. The reserve guard appears to be on track with his recovery and should be a full go at practice in the near future.

Injury
Hand - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Bradley McDougald
News
McDougald posted five tackles (four solo) in Thursday's 19-17 preseason loss to the Colts.

McDougald is a lock to be the Week 1 starter, so his snap count was limited. The outing was successful nonetheless, but the real battle will be who starts beside him at free safety -- Maurice Alexander or Tedric Thompson.

Marcus Johnson
News
The Eagles agreed Wednesday to trade Johnson and a future fifth-round draft pick to the Seahawks in exchange for defensive end Michael Bennett and a future seventh-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Undrafted in 2016, Johnson spent part of his rookie season on the Eagles' practice squad and was active for 10 games in 2017. The speedy wideout caught only five passes across 146 offensive snaps last season, but he may have a larger opportunity in Seattle, where the team seemingly is prepared to let Paul Richardson walk in free agency. The trade won't become official until March 14 when the new league year opens. Once that happens, Johnson could enter the mix for the third or fourth wideout spot, depending on the Seahawks' other moves this offseason.

Jarran Reed
News
Reed is in line to start at defensive tackle for the Seahawks in 2018, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Reed reached 45 tackles (23 solo) and 1.5 sacks in his second season. When he was healthy, Reed averaged 44 defensive snaps per game, but this rate rose to 53 when Nazair Jones suffered an ankle injury. If Reed keeps up these snap counts, he'll be in good position to eclipse the 50-tackle mark in 2018.

Marcus Smith
News
Smith missed Tuesday's practice due to tightness in his hamstring, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

Smith's injury appears to be quite mild, but the Seahawks are electing to proceed cautiously with the former first-rounder at this point of training camp. Smith has logged 2.5 sacks in each of the past two seasons, but he'll still be battling for a roster spot until the regular season begins.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Mike Tyson
News
Tyson (undisclosed) did not participate in Friday's practice, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Tyson prematurely left Thursday's practice with an unknown injury. When healthy, the 2017 sixth-rounder will compete for a depth role in the Seahawks secondary.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
Brandon Marshall
News
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.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 1 at Denver
