Wednesday Round-Up: What we learned from Practice 10 of Training Camp

Posted Aug 6, 2014

A morning link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks

Round-Up by Bing

Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, August 6 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Kam Chancellor, Russell Okung On The Mend

Strong safety Kam Chancellor (hip) and left tackle Russell Okung (toe) both returned to practice this week in limited fashion after missing the early part of training camp rehabbing from offseason surgeries.

The All-Pro Chancellor said his injury was something that dated back five or six years to his time at Virginia Tech.

"I'm on schedule to where I want to be," Chancellor said. "I feel like I'm getting healthy. I feel I'm on a perfect schedule to get right back on the field and ready to go."

The 2010 No. 6 overall draft pick Okung missed eight games a year ago before returning in November to finish the rest of the season. The injury lingered into the offseason though, and after conversations with coaches and training staff, the team thought it was best to operate on his injured foot.

"I'm feeling pretty good," Okung said. "It's great to be back out here after a really long offseason, at least to me. Now that I'm on my path to recovery, I'm just very grateful to be out here."

Dion Bailey Waived/Injured; Trey Wolfe Signed

Rookie safety Dion Bailey was waived/injured yesterday and the team signed rookie corner Trey Wolfe in his place.

Bailey, who originally signed as an undrafted free agent following May's NFL Draft, sprained his ankle when coming down to the ground after defending a pass during this past Saturday's intra-squad scrimmage. Wolfe, out of Division II's Fort Valley State, participated in the Seahawks' rookie minicamp on a tryout basis this spring.

Area 29: Episode 2

Seahawks All-Pro free safety Earl Thomas released episode two of his "Area 29" web series yesterday. The most recent installment offers a look at Thomas' life in Orange, Texas, taking you inside his home to talk about the Seahawks' success in Super Bowl XLVIII, the upcoming season, and what his family means to him.

Tweet of the Day 

Today's "Tweet of the Day" comes from Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin, who is rehabbing from the hip surgery he underwent this spring. Irvin's tweet of "I'm on the way 12's" was accompanied with an Instagram video of him running on an anti-gravity treadmill. The third-year pro was sent to the team's physically unable to perform (PUP) list at the start of training camp and has yet to participate in any on-field work.

On July 25, coach Pete Carroll had this to say about the 2012 first-round draft pick's recovery: "He looks fantastic. He thinks he can do everything, but we’re going to take our time. We’ll probably work it all the way through camp to see how the progress goes. We want to make sure we’re right so that once he comes back, he’s good and ready to go."

With Irvin on PUP, fourth-year linebacker Mike Morgan has been working in with the No.1 defense.
