Three questions

Favorite movie: “’Backdraft.’ When I was younger I wanted to be a firefighter. I’ve still got it on my iPad.”

Favorite musician: “J Cole. Right now I’m really into R&B.”

What he’d be doing if he weren’t playing football: “My major was health services administration, learning how to run hospitals, so that is kind of what I would be doing. Or playing small forward for the Lakers. That’s where I would be.”

What happened

The Seahawks had their 10th day of training camp in preparation for their first preseason game on Thursday against the San Diego Chargers.

The spotlight

CB Walter Thurmond had a big day playing mostly with the first-team defense with CB Brandon Browner getting a day off. Thurmond had a few pass breakups, including one down the sideline against WR Golden Tate when Thurmond got an outstretched hand on the ball. Pete Carroll said Thurmond has done “very well” in training camp is competing with veteran Antoine Winfield for the team’s nickel spot.

Play of the day

WR Golden Tate had two defensive backs on his heels but went up and grabbed the ball high out of the air over both Will Blackmon and DeShawn Snead. Brady Quinn threw the pass, but Tate went up and simply made a big play.

Injury report

C Max Unger, DL Michael Bennett and WRs Bryan Walters and Early Doucet didn’t practice for the first time. Coach Pete Carroll didn’t speak with the media, so it’s unclear if they were just getting a day off or are injured. TE Michael Palmer returned to the field. RB Robert Turbin still didn’t practice, although Carroll said he was cleared on Sunday.

Attendance 2,550

The Seahawks practice at 10:15 a.m. on Tuesday. Practice is open to the public but is sold out.
