Seahawks free agent acquisition Dre'Mont Jones hurts his toe

Near the end of practice on Sunday, Jones banged his foot on the ground and hurt his toe. After practice, Carroll said "I don’t know the extent of it at this point." And that he was "just wishful, hopeful optimism there" that Jones would not be out too long. Jones was able to walk off the field under his own power after a few minutes so at least that is a good sign.

Jones was signed this offseason to a three-year deal worth $51,530,000. This is so far the most money general manager John Schneider has spent on bringing a player to Seattle from another team. Jones has shown he is capable of pressuring quarterbacks and is solid against the run. He is an important part of what Seattle wants to do with its defensive line this season. The extent of Jones' injury is not yet known.

In other injury news, running back Kenny McIntosh, who hurt his knee in the mock game last week, will only be out for a couple of weeks, it seems. McIntosh had been one of Seattle's presumed key running backs not to be hurt so far this training camp. He'd also been having a great camp so far, so hopefully, when he returns he can get right back to where he was.

Darrell Taylor was on the practice field but his arm was no longer in a sling. He wasn't participating in drills, but at least no sling is a positive sign. Carroll said after practice that two other hurt Seahawks, Jamal Adams and Jordyn Brooks, appear to be getting closer to being back, but still set no timelines on when either may return.
