Meet a Seahawk
Position: Defensive end/linebacker
Height, weight: 6-3, 242
• Schofield’s father, Anthony, served in the Navy and the family lived in London for three years. What was that like? “It was amazing. I was over there when Princess Diana passed away, so that was, like, a big-time thing over there. I’ve still got pictures and stuff from that.”
• What did your father do? “He was a radio man. Served for 23 years and he was a Senior Chief, so he did pretty good.”
• Is there a story behind your first name? “Actually my first name is Alacce (a-LAY-see-a) and my middle name is O’Brien. When I was born, my dad was stationed in Singapore and he called my mother and told her to name me Alacceo Brian Schofield. But she named me Alacce O’Brien Schofield. Growing up, Alacce got butchered so much that I just started going with O’Brien.”
The Seahawks practiced for a little over 90 minutes in helmets, shoulder pads and shorts/sweats.
The big story
Backup second-year running back Robert Turbin participated for the first time this season after recovering from a nagging foot injury. He got a lot of work with rookie Christine Michael sitting out with back spasms after his 16 carries for 89 yards Thursday against the Chargers. “It’s great to have him (back),’’ coach Pete Carroll said of Turbin. “We rested him and he’s just been champing at the bit.’’
Eighteen players sat out. Among new players out with injuries suffered in the Chargers game were DL Jaye Howard (shoulder), LB Ty Powell (thigh bruise); CB Byron Maxwell (ankle); and WR Perez Ashford (unknown).
The Seahawks will practice again Monday at 10 a.m. in a workout that is open to the public, though all tickets are sold.
