RENTON Nothing new about Earl Thomas. He missed another Wednesday practice, for the fifth consecutive game week.

But this is new: Seattle’s All-Pro safety is much more iffy to play than he has been all season.

Thomas continues to rest and get rehabilitation on his strained right hamstring he sustained late in last weekend’s win over Houston. He may not practice until Friday, if then. The Seahawks may not know until pregame warmups before they host Washington on Sunday if Thomas can play.

“No, not yet. We are going to wait a couple days,” coach Pete Carroll said before Wednesday’s practice. “We will see on Friday.”
Bradley McDougald is readying to make his first Seahawks start.

General manager John Schneider and his personnel staff signed the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers starter in the spring, to backup both Thomas and strong safety Kam Chancellor. His coaches have been finding increasing roles for him as a bigger, fifth, “nickel” defensive back inside against big receivers including tight ends.

“I’ve been working to be a starter since I’ve been here,” McDougald said. “So this is nothing different.”

Carroll says the Seahawks are lucky to have him.

“Very fortunately, on our end of it, Bradley has been a starter in the league for years and he’s got the experience, the savvy,” Carroll said. “He is a play maker. He is really tough. He’s a good tackler, and we have spotted him all over the place to do things in coverage as well as the running game. He is just a really, really good football player to be able to set up.

“There is no question. We don’t have any hesitation in him playing or keeping the plan, principles intact or anything of that. This was a guy that we were very fortunate to get in the offseason. John figured this one out early on and he’s been a great addition to our team and now he is ready to go. He is excited about it and I’m anxious to see him play.”
The Seahawks had 10 players sit out practice. That’s not entirely alarming on any November Wednesday after banging for seven games.

Of those, Chancellor, Wagner, Bennett and Freeney seemed like veteran rest and/or maintenance days for nagging aches.

Lane was still returning from Houston after he failed his physical exam following Seattle trading him to the Texans to get left tackle Duane Brown, who debuted in Seahawks practice Wednesday. McDougald acknowledged that the situation of Lane’s return to the team that dealt him away “is definitely different” and that “Jeremy might be at a weird stage.”

My News Tribune colleague John McGrath details how awkward that whole deal is.

“Jeremy Lane is having one hell of a season,” McGrath writes. “With an emphasis on the hell.”

Reed’s concussion listing was new. He was getting praise last week from Carroll for his advancement in his second NFL season inside on the defensive front.

Britt sprained his ankle two games ago in the win at the New York Giants but finished that game while missing only six plays. He played all of last weekend’s win over the Texans. Carroll said his center and 2016 Pro Bowl alternate is OK to play again Sunday.

“He is fine,” the coach said. “We are going to go light on him today just to make sure from the aftermath of the game but he will be fine and ready to play.”

Freeney didn’t practice because he’s 37 and a future Hall-of-Fame pass rusher, and doesn’t have to.

Cheap Authentic NFL Seahawks Womens Nazair Jones Jerseys 2017

The Seahawks were as active in the 2017 NFL draft as any team. They tied the Vikings and Bengals for the most picks with 11, including seven in the first 111 selections. And though none is assured of walking straight into starting jobs, several could start, and several others figure to be at least rotational players. With training camp set to begin Sunday, here’s a look at each draft pick: DL Malik McDowell: Seattle’s first pick at No. 35 overall in the second round, McDowell is expected to be used at defensive tackle and end in a role similar to that of Michael Bennett. Given the veterans ahead of him, McDowell isn’t likely to earn an official starting designation. But the team is counting on him to be a significant part of the rotation with a chance to play 40-60 percent of the snaps.

OL Ethan Pocic: Seattle’s second pick in the second round will be tried at right guard and tackle, and his best shot could come at tackle where he will compete with last year’s first-round pick, Germain Ifedi. Pocic’s ability to also play center means that at the worst he figures to be one of the active linemen on game day, able to back up just about everywhere. CB Shaquill Griffin: Griffin might have the best shot of any rookie to earn a starting role, as he will compete for the right-cornerback spot opposite Richard Sherman. Jeremy Lane is the leader for that job and his experience might make him hard to dislodge. Neiko Thorpe also is a factor in that competition. Lane, though, still could be the team’s nickelback, meaning Griffin and Thorpe could be competing to be the right cornerback when the team is in nickel, an alignment it could use roughly two-thirds of the time this season. SS Delano Hill: A third-rounder out of Michigan, he projects for this season as a backup to Kam Chancellor and a special-teams contributor, and he could get on the field in some sub packages. DL Nazair Jones: The third of the team’s four third-round picks, Jones will compete for time at tackle behind Jarran Reed and Ahtyba Rubin, specifically filling in at the three-technique spot. WR Amara Darboh: The fourth third-round pick, Darboh will compete for a spot in the receiving rotation, likely more for the outside roles. A spot on the 53-man roster seems to be a given. S Tedric Thompson: The last of the team’s seven picks in the top 111, Thompson figures to start out at free safety where he would back up Earl Thomas (veteran free agent Bradley McDougald can back up at both safety spots). But it wouldn’t be a surprise if the Seahawks put Thompson at corner to judge his ability to play there. He could emerge as a player who is similar to DeShawn Shead in his early years, able to back up at several spots. CB Mike Tyson: Primarily a safety in college, Tyson is being tried as a cornerback by the Seahawks, primarily as a nickel. There’s enough uncertainty at cornerback that it’s not out of the realm for Tyson to earn a roster spot and see time this season. OL Justin Senior: A sixth-round pick, Senior is competing at left tackle behind George Fant, Luke Joeckel and Rees Odhiambo. But when he was drafted the Seahawks essentially said they view Senior as a project — in part due to a need to lose some weight — and he seems ticketed for the practice squad. But given the nature of Seattle’s offensive line, you never know. WR David Moore: Moore will compete for a spot on the back end of the 53-man roster with Tanner McEvoy, Kasen Williams and Kenny Lawler. The big question could be if those four are competing for one spot or two — or who knows, three? — depending on how they play and how the roster shakes out elsewhere. RB Chris Carson: The Seahawks seem fairly loaded at tailback with Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise locks to make it and second-year player Alex Collins and former 49er Mike Davis also competing for a roster spot. But Carson is a favorite of coach Pete Carroll, who said “I really love this guy’’ after the Seahawks picked him. Carson was sidelined for most of the offseason program, so it’s hard to tell if he can claim a roster spot. But given Carroll’s endorsement he figures to get a long look.
