Seahawks Training Camp Notes For Monday

The Seahawks resumed practicing on Monday after being given the day off on Sunday. It's always fun to monitor the day's goings-on via Twitter and the interwebs, and today brought some juicy nuggets of information straight from the VMAC.

First, per Curtis Crabtree, CB Walter Thurmond, CB Roy Lewis, DE Red Bryant, DT Colin Cole, DT Kentwan Balmer, LB Aaron Curry, RB Thomas Clayton, TE Cameron Morrah, WR Deon Butler and WR Kris Durham did not participate today. Thurmond, Lewis, Cole, Morrah, and Butler have yet to practice in this year's training camp. Red Bryant has been brought along slowly for the past few weeks because of his knee injury from last season. Balmer, Curry, Clayton and Durham have been practicing but it's unclear why they sat out today. I had heard that Durham was nursing a bruised thigh the other day but I'm not sure if that's a carry-over or not.

Now, on to the action. Fellow Seahawks blogger Derek Stephens, of The Blue Bird Herd, was in attendance at camp today, and had some good updates on his twitter account, including the following notes:

--Rookie Byron Maxwell blanketing underneath. Solid. Richard Sherman nice punch to receiver chest in press.

--B Maxwell just took QB Portis out at the knees. Portis had red jersey on. PC giving Mxwll a pep tlk.

--TJax holding 2 long. Not reading safety. Picked by ET easily on MWill fly route down left sideline.

--UDFAs that look good - Doug Baldwin, Ron Parker, Josh Portis, Ricardo Lockette.

Dave Boling also attended and had a good quick-hitter of the practice, including this anecdote that I loved:

On a short pass to Golden Tate, a defender bulldogged him a little roughly. Defensive end Dexter Davis came over to get a little frisky himself. But tackle Russell Okung would have none of that. He hurried over and needed only a quick shove to put an end to Davis' involvement. This offense hasn't had that kind of enforcement for a few years, and Okung clearly is stepping up.
