Friday in Hawkville: Zach Miller will return to practice next week



http://www.seahawks.com/news/articles/article-1/Friday-in-Hawkville-Zach-Miller-will-return-to-practice-next-week/3b856a49-4585-4fd3-9a5f-e2b45badaf3f

Quote:
WORD OF THE DAY: ZACH MILLER
OK, so that’s two words. But the word from coach Pete Carroll is good regarding the Seahawks’ starting tight end, who has been on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list since training camp opened on July 25.

WATCH PRESEASON LIVE

Miller will come off PUP today, Carroll said after practice, and be back on the field next week.
“We’ll continue to be very measured in how we bring him back in, but it’s great to have him back and he’s ready to go,” Carroll said.
In Miller’s absence, rookie Luke Willson and second-year tight end Sean McGrath have been getting the work with the No. 1 offense in practice and last week’s preseason opener against the Chargers in San Diego – where Willson caught a 15-yard pass from backup QB Brady Quinn on a third-and-7 play.
McGrath and Willson will continue to work with the first unit in the preseason home opener against the Broncos.
POSITION WATCH: RIGHT GUARD
J.R. Sweezy and John Moffitt started there last season – Sweezy in the regular-season opener, the final two regular-season games and both playoff games; Moffitt in Weeks 2-3 and Week 14, after starting the first nine games on the right side as a rookie in 2011 before being injured.

YOU DON'T SAY
“The guy we’re watching? Doug Baldwin. He can play. There’s a reason teams inquired about Baldwin’s availability this offseason.”
Elliott Harrison at NFL.com in listing the Seahawks at No. 3 in his most recent NFL power rankings.
Sweezy, who was a defensive lineman in college, got the first reps there in training camp and started the preseason opener against the Chargers in San Diego last week.
But offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said it remains an open competition as to who will start the regular-season opener on Sept. 8 against the Panthers in Carolina.
“There’s a battle going on there,” Bevell said. “Both guys are in different situations. Moffitt has played the position for a long time, and J.R. Sweezy is a guy that has been learning. J.R. has done a really nice job in terms of picking it up. What J.R. learned from last year, he has been able to kind of step forward.
“We still need to see one of those guys really take hold of the position. Neither one of them has really jumped ahead of the other. I’d like to see a little bit more out of John, though.”

POSITION WATCH, PART II: RETURNERS
In the ongoing competition to find punt and kickoff returners to replace Pro Bowl returner Leon Washington, Carroll said that Golden Tate will be up first on punt returns and fellow wide receiver Jermaine Kearse will get the first crack on kickoff returns against the Broncos.
Tate averaged 12.6 yards on 16 punt returns as a rookie in 2010, while Kearse has been among the group returning kickoffs in practice.
INJURY REPORT
Rookie running back Christine Michael and veteran defensive lineman Tony McDaniel participated in the 70-minute practice after missing time, but Carroll stopped short of saying they would be able to play against the Broncos.

Michael ran for 89 yards against the Chargers, but then had to sit out practice this week because of back spasms.
Carroll also provided an update on Percy Harvin, who had recent hip surgery. There is no timeline for when the receiver/returner/runner might be able to return, and Carroll said it could be another month before it is known whether that can happen this season.
“We just know the surgeon that did the work – the specialist – is thrilled with the way he came back the days right after the surgery. His ability to get range of motion and stuff were way ahead of schedule. So that’s a great sign,” Carroll said.

BACKPACKS: BRING ’EM, AND LEAVE ’EM

The Seahawks are holding their annual Stuff the Bus campaign at Saturday night’s game, and fans attending the preseason home opener are asked to bring backpacks and other school supplies that will be donated to students in Seattle schools.
But do not bring a backpack to take into the game. A new league policy limits items that are allowed inside the stadium – and clear vinyl bags with a Seahawks logo will be available to fans.

UP NEXT: FOOTBALL IN SEATTLE, AT LAST
The last time the Seahawks appeared at CenturyLink Field, it was Dec. 30 of last year and they defeated the St. Louis Rams 20-13 to cap the third-best regular-season record in franchise history (11-5). They return on Saturday night to host the Broncos in their preseason home opener.
The players will be off on Sunday.

I'm hearing that the Hawks will be looking at using Phil Bates as a Marcel Reece type FB. I LOVE the idea. I'm hoping we can stash him on the PS for th year

I heard the same thing. I love the idea, Bates is definitely big enough and he's a former college QB like Mike Rob.

The offensive Madden 25 ratings are out. Beast Mode is 96, Max Unger is 92 and Russell Okung is 88.

Russell Wilson is 89 Laughing

Also like the idea of using Bates in that Reece role.



Coleman is my pick for Thomas Clayton of the year.

That's great, even if he is ahead of schedule I dont want them thinking about when he can return at this point. With the investment this team has in Percy he needs to be 110% before he gets back on the field. He's far too important going past this season to think about just this year.

Couldn't agree more. Ideal situation is that we can lock up a first round bye in the playoffs without him seeing the field during the season. If he's 100% by that time of the year and the staff is confident, we can implement him into the gameplan and teams will have no tape to study in preparation for him being added to our already solid offense. I'm far from a homer and pretty fair when I evaluate the Hawks and any other team in the league, but I truly believe that if this scenario happens, the Hawks will be favorites and anything less than a Lombardi Trophy would be a disappointment.

Let's hope that we have gotten the injuries out of the way early and the talent we have the first half of the season can keep us winning enough to let everyone heal to 100% and come back in time to carry us decisively to a Superbowl victory!

Apparently Chris Clemons is running and participating in defensive drills as well.

Injured defensive end Chris Clemons is nearing a return. Clemons has been working out individually to get back on the field after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament against Washington last year.

“He’s right in the middle of the rigorous rehab now,” Carroll said. “He’s on the field cutting and moving and doing defensive-line drills. I don’t know what that means time-wise, but he’s doing well. He’s managing his way through it, and he’s not in any pain or discomfort. It’s just a matter of getting his confidence back and getting him back to full speed.”

Good to hear. Hope they're both back for the super bowl push.

Kearse fills new role as Seahawks win big



http://www.japantimes.co.jp/sports/2013/08/18/more-sports/kearse-fills-new-role-as-seahawks-win-big/#.UhI72JI3sxg

Quote:
SEATTLE – With Percy Harvin out after hip surgery, it seemed very likely wide receiver Jermaine Kearse would end up on the Seattle Seahawks final roster.

He likely cemented his spot Saturday night, showing off skills he last displayed in high school.

Kearse caught a 12-yard touchdown pass from Russell Wilson and returned a kickoff 107 yards for a score and the Seahawks used big plays to rout the Denver Broncos 40-10 in a preseason game.

Kearse last returned kicks at Lakes High School less than an hour south of Seattle. He was approached this week about giving it a shot, with the return game one of Seattle’s main question marks with Harvin out.

“They came to me and asked if I could return and I wasn’t going to say no,” Kearse said. “I got some reps during the week and on Friday coach Carroll told me I was going to be able to get the first one. It was definitely a blessing.”

Seahawks vs. Broncos: Three things we learned



http://seattletimes.com/html/seahawks/2021642251_seahawks19xml.html

Quote:
Even with the heightened expectations greeting the Seahawks this season, it’s hard to have expected much more from them through two exhibition games.

They are 2-0, outscoring the Chargers and Broncos by a combined 71-20, outgaining them by a combined 700-521.

A potentially stiffer test figures to come Friday night when the Seahawks play at Green Bay in their third exhibition game, which is typically the one in which the starters play the longest.

Before looking ahead, though, let’s take another look back at what we learned in the 40-10 win over Denver Saturday night.

1. Jermaine Kearse is a keeper.

Inside the team, there’s been little question for a while now that Kearse was going to make the final roster.

And anyone on the outside who still doubted — those who may have fixated on his status as a free agent or focused on the struggles he sometimes had at Washington with drops — had to be won over by his performance Saturday when he caught his second TD pass of the exhibition season and also returned a kickoff 107 yards for another score.

Maybe it’s the eye surgery he had during the offseason that he says has allowed him to see more clearly on the field than he had previously. Or maybe it’s just a young, talented player coming into his own. Whatever the reasons, at this point it’s obvious that Kearse is not only making the team but is likely to be a key part of the receiving rotation and special teams.

2. Penalties are still an issue.

The biggest statistical flaw for Seattle so far has been penalties — Seattle was flagged 15 times against Denver, and 12 were accepted for a total of 107 yards. Seattle also had eight penalties in the opener against San Diego, showing that what was a problem a year ago — recall that the Seahawks were called for the seventh-most penalties per game in 2012 — has yet to be fixed.

“We just have to get better there,” coach Pete Carroll said afterward. “It’s lousy to play football like that.”

And as Carroll said, making the problem more vexing is that it was a number of different players who were flagged, including many veterans — Seattle was called for eight in the first half when it was mostly starters and other regulars who were in the game. Seattle was called for seven penalties on offense, five on special teams and three on defense.

Asked if it was simply a matter of the players getting up to regular-season speed, Carroll said: “I wish it was that easy. I don’t think it’s that easy.”

3. The pass rush remains a work in progress.

A quick glance at the stats — which shows Seattle with eight sacks to just one for its opponents — may make you think the Seahawks are right where they want to be in this area.

But a closer look reveals that none of those sacks came against the two starting QBs Seattle has played — San Diego’s Philip Rivers and Denver’s Peyton Manning (and for what it’s worth, those two went a combined 16-22 for 208 yards against Seattle).

Exhibition stats can be tricky to judge since teams aren’t really game-planning and are using lots of different personnel.

Manning is also obviously good at avoiding sacks, though that’s also sort of the point — the Seahawks won’t be playing against Charlie Whitehurst and Brock Osweiler once the regular season begins.

It’s also hard, though, to really judge Seattle’s pass rush yet since some of the players who are being counted on to play key roles in that effort — notably Cliff Avril, Chris Clemons and Bruce Irvin — have yet to suit up.

It’s easy to assume it will get better once those guys get healthy and return. But it remains unclear exactly when Clemons will be available, and while Avril returned to practice this week, he has yet to do any full-contact team work. And Irvin is going to miss the first four games no matter what due to his suspension for PED use.

Seattle began the game Saturday with free-agent rookie Benson Mayowa at end and newly-acquired O’Brien Schofield at the LEO/rush-end spot, obviously not what anybody would have envisioned a few months ago.

Getting their front-line defensive line guys healthy and ready is maybe the biggest task for the Seahawks between now and the start of the regular season Sept. 8 at Carolina.

Seahawks Wish Granted for Farmington Hills 12-Year-Old

http://farmington-mi.patch.com/groups/schools/p/seahawks-wish-granted-for-farmington-hills-12yearold

Quote:
Kevin Lee, a Farmington Hills resident and Walled Lake Schools seventh-grader, took a dream trip with his family to Seattle, WA this summer, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The Geisler Middle School student has had four open-heart surgeries, due to a congenital heart condition. His mother contacted Make-A-Wish Foundation and learned that his life-threatening condition made Kevin eligible to submit his wish: to play football with Russell Wilson, quarterback with the Seattle Seahawks.

“Make-a-Wish, the Seattle Seahawks and even the personnel at our hotel far exceeded any expectations we may have had," said Kevin's mother, Dawn Lee. "They told Kevin, when he was thinking of his wish, to really reach for the stars and he did. They gave him what he asked for and more than he could have ever conceived. We are truly grateful for this once in a lifetime experience!”

Kevin's story aired on ESPN throughout the past weekend and can be viewed online at espn.com or at Seahawks.com.
