The Seahawks saw a handful of players go from limited participation Thursday to full participation in Friday’s practice, including safety Quandre Diggs, a recent trade acquisition who is hoping to make his Seahawks debut Monday night after missing the previous two games with a hamstring injury.
Also going from limited to full participation were safety Lano Hill (elbow), defensive end Quinton Jefferson (oblique), linebacker K.J. Wright (knee), and linebacker Bobby Wagner and running back Chris Carson, who were both limited a day earlier for non-injury reasons, presumably just rest. Center Joey Hunt, meanwhile, went from sitting out Thursday with a hip injury to limited participation Friday.
Receiver Josh Gordon, who the Seahawks claimed off of waivers last week, was a limited participant for the second day in a row because of an ankle injury, but so far Gordon is making a good early impression on teammates and coaches.
“Josh, he’s been great since he’s gotten here,” quarterback Russell Wilson said. “He’s been studying like crazy. He sits up [front] and takes tons of notes. He’s highlighting like crazy. He’s in his playbook nonstop. He’s prepared. He’ll be prepared and ready to roll. He’s a true pro. He’s been in different systems and stuff like that. I think that helps him. I think he’s really fired up to be here. We’re fired up to have him.”
After watching Gordon practice for a second straight day, offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said, “He has done a really nice job picking up the system. I’m very impressed with the timing that he and Russ are working through and working on. You can see the veteran, he knows how to play the game. You can see how he has picked up the system pretty quick, so it’s been very, very positive… He’s moving around really good out there. I haven’t asked him (about the ankle), but I don’t notice anything about it. We’ll see how he does tomorrow, but he’s moving around good.”
Not practicing for the second straight day were left tackle Duane Brown (biceps/knee) and defensive end Jadeveon Clowney (toe/knee). Both players played in last week’s win over Tampa Bay and were able to finish the game, and there will be more clarity on their status when Seahawks coach Pete Carroll addresses the media again Saturday.
A few new injuries showed up on Friday, with Tyler Lockett (hip), guard D.J. Fluker (shoulder), guard Phil Haynes (ankle) and tackle Jamarco Jones (illness) all added to the injury list as limited participants.
