Seahawks’ rookie draft class hit hard by injuries in camp

Wednesday, August 21st, 2019

The injury bug issues were apparent Wednesday when none of the top three draft picks were on the practice field. Wide receiver DK Metcalf had minor knee surgery earlier this week while safety Marquise Blair was dealing with back spasms that flared up during Sunday's preseason game against Minnesota. The two second-rounders joined first-round selection L.J. Collier on the medical report.

Seahawks to play QB Smith, rule out Lynch vs. Chargers

Wednesday, August 21st, 2019

While injuries continue to mount for the Seattle Seahawks, head coach Pete Carroll did have some good news to share on Wednesday. Quarterback Geno Smith is healthy after having a cyst removed from his knee and will serve as backup behind Russell Wilson in Saturday's preseason game against the Los Angles Chargers. "Geno needs to play a lot, so it will work out," Carroll said Wednesday.

Fann Mail: What to make of Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny’s slow start in preseason

Wednesday, August 21st, 2019

I think John Ursua is good enough to make the team and I think he's got a chance to make the team, but ultimately I don't think he will. Ursua has just two receptions in the preseason – a 21-yarder against the Denver Broncos and a 25-yarder against Minnesota – but he showed impressive run after the catch ability on both. Ursua is simply falling victim to the numbers game.

Philip Rivers thinks Tom Brady among the best, but not for obvious reason

Wednesday, August 21st, 2019

Philip Rivers is willing to admit that Tom Brady's better than he is. During an interview on the Dan Patrick Show, Rivers pointed to the end of Super Bowl XLIX, when it was Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler's interception that sealed the win for New England over the Seahawks. “I remember thinking when the Patriots beat the Seahawks, when they had that interception against the Seahawks and that gave them what, their [fourth] championship?” Rivers said, via Matt Vautour of Masslive.com.

Tuesday, August 20th, 2019

The Seattle Seahawks placed guard Demetrius Knox on injured reserve on Tuesday after sustaining a quadriceps injury in Sunday night's preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings. The team signed guard Landon Turner to fill the vacancy on the roster. Knox, an undrafted rookie from Ohio State, was injured in the fourth quarter of the game, falling to the turf and grabbing the area of his right knee.

‘It’s time to speak up’: an open letter to Colin Kaepernick

Tuesday, August 20th, 2019

And so Malcolm, inspired by your decision to kneel during the national anthem to draw attention to the extrajudicial killings of unarmed black men in America, did just that and wrote a poem entitled Kaepernick, which he's since recited to crowds at book fairs, poetry venues and colleges across the country – including at my alma mater Syracuse University last year – often proudly wearing his red and white jersey with your name across the back. But last week Malcolm came to me confused.

Peter King predicts three teams in the NFC West that can make deep playoff runs this year

Monday, August 19th, 2019

The NFC West division has been two teams for some time now. Since the 2013 season, the Seattle Seahawks or Los Angeles Rams have won the division five out of six times. Russell Wilson and the rowdy 12th man up North have proved it be a tough road victory for any visiting team.

2019 Seattle Seahawks 53-man roster projection 1.0

Monday, August 19th, 2019

It's important to note that Seattle is likely to tweak its roster immediately depending on who else gets cut from around the NFL. Analysis: I was already of the belief that even though Paxton Lynch had closed the gap, the backup job remained Smith's to lose. Then Lynch struggled against the Vikings (6-of-15 passing for 67 yards), and left the game after taking a brutal hit to the head from Minnesota corner Holton Hill.

Tom Brady apparently has become one of Pete Carroll’s ‘heroes’

Monday, August 19th, 2019

It turns out the Seattle Seahawks head coach has taken a page from the TB12 handbook by adopting parts of Brady's uber-healthy, plant-based diet. And it's helped Carroll so much that he insists the New England Patriots quarterback is one of his "heroes." "Tom is one of my heroes," Carroll told NBC Sports' Peter King in a recent interview.
