Jesse Williams suffers knee injury

RENTON, Wash. – Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Jesse Williams was taken off the field on a cart Wednesday after injuring a knee in one-on-one pass rushing/blocking drills.

The Seahawks announced that Williams had suffered a knee injury a few hours after practice, but no details were given. Williams, a fifth-round draft choice out of Alabama in 2013, missed his rookie season with knee problems.

Left guard James Carpenter (calf) and middle linebacker Bobby Wagner (hamstring) did not practice after getting nicked in Tuesday’s workout. Wide receivers Jermaine Kearse and Paul Richardson did not practice, but both players looked fine.

Linebacker O’Brien Schofield, who missed practice Tuesday because he was resting, did not practice Wednesday. Offensive tackle Michael Bowie is still out with a shoulder injury.

Three starters who had offseason surgery – offensive tackle Russell Okung (toe), linebacker Malcolm Smith (ankle) and strong safety Kam Chancellor (hip) – have not practiced yet in training camp.

Rookie linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis was in full pads, but did not take part in any team drills. He has an oblique injury.
