The Seahawks were missing six players at Wednesday’s practice, including receiver Tyler Lockett.

Lockett has a back injury.

Safety Tedric Thompson (hamstring), defensive tackle Poona Ford (calf), center Joey Hunt (ankle), cornerback Neiko Thorpe (hamstring) and center Justin Britt (knee) also sat out practice.

Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney (rest), defensive end Ziggy Ansah (shoulder) and defensive end L.J. Collier (ankle) were among those players who were limited.

The Seahawks did see the return of receiver David Moore, who broke a bone in his shoulder during an Aug. 22 practice. Moore practiced on a limited basis.

  1. They should probably replace the artificial turf with the kind that cows can munch on. Frisco did it in the 1970s in Candlestick and the injury rate was drastically reduced. That is why they have grass in Levi’s Stadium.

  2. DK Metcalf is a monster. Every catch he made he had a defender draped all over him. His size let him body guys away from the ball and he’s good at it. Soft hands. Smart. We definitely saw why Schneider traded up for him.

  3. For those that never played the game of football, there is a thing called being in “football shape”…it is nothing like being in “shape” which is mostly just cardio and leg strength. Football shape includes getting your body used to the physical struggle that happens every single play, especially on the line. It includes getting smashed into again and again by another very strong man trying overcome you physically. Watch the handwork, those guys are literally in a fight, using max power every snap.

    You may have never gotten into a physical altercation where you are wrestling another man to win where you go as hard as you can, but these guys do it every single play in the trenches and it is a shock to your body for a couple weeks after starting the season.

    Back in the day, there were two-a-days which is two practices a day for a week at the beginning of the year just to shock your body into “football shape”. You can hardly get out of bed that first morning but it gets better and better and by the end of the week and into week two your body responds much more quickly.

    So yes, Clowney would probably need a little rest after joining the team last week and playing a tough game on Sunday against an actual opponent. I bet he sat in an ice bath afterwards.

    Taking the rest on Wednesday in the middle of the week(as Marshawn Lynch used to do every week) would indicate that they are also concentrating on preparing his body for the upcoming game.

    His body requires it, much like you would alternate upper body and lower body workouts every other day to give them rest on the day off to build and recover.

    OMG… I remember doing two a days… The cramps in the calf muscles when you’re just trying to rest. It’s hard to replenish fast enough because you’re so exhausted. We had a 3 hour morning session of drills and technique, a brief lunch break then 2 more hours of plays and conditioning, then a 3 hour break and return in the evening for 2 more hours of what ever they thought we needed more of, and lot’s of scrimmaging.

  5. I always thought to it is did a good job of building camaraderie among the team as they’re all going through it together.

    Kind of like boot camp.

    I bet it also did a good job of showing the coaches who was mentally strong or weak.
