Camp Mora: Day 18, two-a-day schedule concludes

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Seahawks logo.gifSEAHAWKS TRAINING CAMP: Day 18
Two practices, No pads, 1 hour, 15 minutes each


Roll call: Seven players did not practice. Only new absence was No. 22 Julius Jones, who worked in the morning but not in the evening. Still out: CB Marcus Trufant (PUP, back), LB Aaron Curry (groin), OL Grey Ruegamer (elbow), T Walter Jones (knee), WR Nate Burleson (hamstring) and DL Lawrence Jackson (groin). Returned to practice: DL Michael Bennett. Also C Chris Spencer and T Ray Willis practiced in the evening after the customary morning off.

  • The practice was not open to the public, which means that reporters are limited in the action that can be described from the practice field. In very general terms, TE John Carlson continued to show great hands, on one play deadening a pass and then grabbing hold of a pass that was affected by a pretty stiff breeze.

  • The offensive linemen are sporting mohawks. T Sean Locklear was the first in line, and his isn't quite as conspicuous as that of, say, veteran Cory Withrow. Center Steve Vallos is supposed to be up next.

  • Back to Carlson, though. He's been tireless in his approach this training camp to prepare for the season.

    "We've given him all kinds of opportunities," quarterback Matt Hasselbeck said, "and he seems like he takes every rep out there. The guy is like a golden retriever, he just runs and comes back and runs and comes back. He doesn't complain and he's great.

    "He has worked harder than anybody I have seen here to be ready for this season."

    And with that, the two-a-day portion of the Seahawks' practice schedule concludes, punctuated by the sounds of Kool and the Gang's "Celebrate" being played in the locker room.
