The Seattle Seahawks had two practices left in the public eye before their normal practice routine becomes shrouded in mystery only the reporters at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center get to see and now you can make that only one practice remaining with the final coming on Thursday. The Seahawks started their game preparation in earnest on Wednesday for their second glorified scrimmage on Saturday versus the Los Angeles Chargers.
Following a break on Tuesday, the Seahawks practiced on Wednesday and will have one more open training camp practice on Thursday with a light practice and travel day on Friday before the second game in Los Angeles on Saturday. Got all that? So many days to get track off am I right? They did the hard work of starting to rev up their players who’ve been easing into camp like Brandon Marshall and Frank Clark prior to the Tuesday break. They’re only getting more and more work each to day to prepare Marshall for his largest amount of football since early in the 2017 season and Clark for his first preseason game of 2018. He sat versus the Indianapolis Colts last week.
In general, the first teams on offense and defense are increasing their intensity level as they’ll start playing more and more snaps throughout the preseason. The defense was particularly intense on Wednesday and everyone took notice including Pete Carroll. Along with the defense, Tyler Lockett had a noticeable practice event with a bit of a scare. Considering the circumstances with Rashaad Penny breaking a finger at practice, it obviously caused a tense moment.
Here are all the details from the penultimate episode of Seahawks 2018 training camp.
