Seahawks camp at a glance
Meet a Seahawk
Height, weight: 6-3, 232
College: Virginia Tech
Hometown: Norfolk, Va.
• Favorite movie: “Friday After Next.” I’ve maybe watched it 200-plus times. Me and my friends used to watch it after school and try to find something new in it.
• College degree: Chancellor graduated in 2010 with a degree in human development. “I like working with people, changing people’s lives, working with the less fortunate, and that’s pretty much what that major has to do with.’’
• Favorite food: “I’m big on Italian food. Baked ziti.’’
The Seahawks practiced for roughly two hours under cloudy skies at the VMAC. The team was in helmets and shoulder pads for what was the sixth practice of training camp.
The big story
While the NFL news media continued to buzz about the loss of Percy Harvin for 2 to 4 months, Seattle players said they will go on with their high hopes for this season and to prove cynics wrong. “From the starters down to the guys on the practice squad, there’s chips on our shoulders,’’ said receiver Doug Baldwin. “I think that’s because of the atmosphere that we built here. We have young guys who are enthusiastic and passionate about football.’’
Play of the day
During a 7-on-7 passing drill, quarterback Russell Wilson lofted the ball roughly 70 yards to an apparently open tight end Sean McGrath in the back of the end zone. Safety Earl Thomas, though, recovered quickly and swiped the ball out of McGrath’s hands at the last moment, much to the disgust of McGrath, who showed visible disappointment at not being able to hang on.
Seattle had 18 players sidelined Thursday, including the six who have been out all camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Among the new players sidelined were MLB Bobby Wagner and CB Jeremy Lane. Rookie TE Luke Willson appeared to injury his arm during practice after taking a hard hit from safety Winston Guy. Details of the injuries, though, were not available. With Wagner out, Allen Bradford worked with the starting defense at middle linebacker.
Seahawks will practice again at 10:15 a.m. Thursday. The practice is open to the public but spots are sold out.
