Seahawks take it easy Monday

After a weekend of high-intensity practices, Pete Carroll decided to cancel Monday afternoon’s practice and instead give his team a rest with a walkthrough, which will be followed by a scheduled day off tomorrow. Then it’s back to full speed Wednesday as the team prepares for Saturday’s preseason game against Minnesota.

While it’s hard to read too much into a walkthrough, it is worth pointing out a few players’ participation, particularly that of LT Russell Okung, who played went through part of the practice with the first team. Now again, it was a walkthrough, not a full speed practice, but you have to believe that if the ankle injury he suffered Thursday was serious at all, he would have been standing on the side watching. Mike Williams (toe) who missed the game, again participated after going through parts of the past two day’s practices. Same for DE Red Bryant, who is recovering from knee surgery and missed Thursday’s game. TE John Carlson sat out, though no reason was given. CB Walter Thurmond (ankle) continues to be out, but was doing worth with a trainer after practice.
