Seattle Seahawks Training Camp Notes: Day 3

I wasn’t able to watch the workouts today, so I can’t tell you how individual players did or didn’t do. Sorry, that aspect of these notes should likely return tomorrow. Instead, I wanted to focus on a few things issues that have come up in the early days if camp:

  • Jul 27, 2013; Renton, WA, USA; Seattle Seahawks strong safety Winston Guy (27) (white jersey) and Seattle Seahawks tight end Victor Marshall (87) both jump for the ball during a drill on the 3rd day of training camp at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center.

    The biggest news so far is Percy Harvin’s hip injury. There’s a lot of speculation that Harvin might be done for the year, but I just don’t buy it. Kam Chancellor played through a similar injury last year, so it’s hardly a death sentence. Even if he has surgery, the recovery time is typically measured in weeks, and not months. If he has surgery, he’ll likely end up on the PUP list, and be back around week 10.

  • LB Korey Toomer can’t help that he’s hurt, but it is making it tougher and tougher for him to make the team each day. The battle for the team’s 6th LB (counting Irvin as a LB for that count) is going to be tough. Toomer certainly has the talent, but still has to prove he can read and react in a way where he can turn that athleticism into productivity. He can’t do that that on the sidelines, and I heard he was on crutches today.
  • Zach Miller’s injury isn’t very serious according to Pete Carroll. He said today that there’s no timetable for his return, but that he absolutely wont miss week 1. There’s simply no reason to rush him. He knows the offense, and the extra reps in practice will help Luke Willson and Shawn McGrath get ready to contribute once the games begin.
  • Michael Robinson sat out today with a sore ankle. Heath Farwell had back spasms. Jesse Williams’s troublesome knee is acting up and kept him out as well. No player who has missed a day practice has returned yet, so the team is down quite a few players now.
  • The Seahawks are going to have to cut at least CB who’ll be good enough to start for a few teams in this league. I would be surprised if the team doesn’t end up trading someone like Byron Maxwell late in the preseason. There’s just more talent at CB on the team right now than there is room on the 53 man roster.
  • The Seahawks added another $1.3 million in salary today, meaning they now need to drop almost $4.5 million in salary before the 53 man roster is set. Keep that in mind when you read comments about who might and might not make the roster. That’s a lot of salary that must be cleared, and there’s only a few players who can be moved that offer enough salary cap relief to matter.

    Keith, If a player goes on injury reserve or the pup list, does his salary count against the salary cap?

    • 12thMan_Rising

      it is, yes. There’s no salary cap relief for either designation. Luckily since the salary cap only counts the top 51 salaries, any rookie, practice squad call-up, or street free agent (all of which typically make the league minimum) who ends up on the roster because of that injury doesn’t take up any cap space either.
