Sidney Rice's gift of gab evident; Kam Chancellor rests sore hip
Marshawn Lynch was also not on the practice field as he was getting treatment for a sore back though Carroll indicated he felt that's something that would be taken care of in time.
Matt Flynn threw for about half of Monday's practice as he returns after an inflamed muscle in his throwing arm kept him from playing in Friday's game. Carroll said the goal was to not tax Flynn's arm too much in his return.
Others watching practice: Jason Jones (knee), Greg Scruggs (hamstring), LB Matt McCoy (knee), S Chris Maragos (shoulder), WR Doug Baldwinn (hamstring).
The highlight of the day was a catch by wide receiver Sidney Rice over the middle as he extended to grab a ball thrown by Russell Wilson. He caught the ball with his fingertips, extending so far it really did look like he only got the first two fingers of both hands and his thumbs on the ball, pulling it to his body and tucking into a roll as cornerback Byron Maxwell dove -- futilely -- to try and break up the pass. It was simply remarkable.
That is all. I'll be back on the blog later after I finish up counting how many times Wilson used the word "great" in Monday's press conference.
Also, the Seahawks released cornerback Coye Francies and completed the trade of quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, reaching the roster limit of 75 by Monday's deadline.
