Camp Carroll: Day Five
Under center: Matt Flynn took the snaps with the first-unit offense, Russell Wilson worked with the No. 2 offense while Tarvaris Jackson was with the No. 3s. Jackson, however, got fewer than half the snaps as Flynn in the team scrimmage periods, but coach Pete Carroll said that was due to the fact Jackson was working with the second unit.
Blowing his top: Receiver Ricardo Lockette has been one of the most impressive players through the first week of training camp, and he very nearly came down with an impressive catch on a go-route down the sidelines only to drop it after he got behind the defense. He then took off his helmet, flinging it down to the ground violently. Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell came over to remind Lockette to keep a more even-keel demeanor and that dropping a pass is bad enough. Costing a team 15 yards in penalties in addition to dropping it is substantially worse.
Grass isn't always greener: Sometimes it's Browner. Oh wait. That's a terrible play on words. It doesn't even make any sense, but cornerback Brandon Browner did distinguish himself during Thursday's practice with a pair of interceptions, one off a tipped pass and the other in which he jumped a route to intercept Flynn.
Turbin-ator: Rookie running back Robert Turbin was on the receiving end of a significant whack from linebacker K.J. Wright on Monday. Well, Turbin is the one who delivered the better part of a blow during a drill Thursday, knocking defensive end Red Bryant down as the two collided. Of course, Turbin didn't see the big fella' fall as he'd been spun around himself. Suffice it to say there were some physics at work in sorting out that collision.
Personnel-ity plus: DL Jason Jones rejoined practice after sitting out a couple days this week with a sore knee. LB Barrett Ruud was back on the field, too. WR Jermaine Kearse was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list and practiced for the first time with the Seahawks this training camp.
