Blair Walsh Revenge Game!!!
Blair Walsh Revenge Game!!!
The Seahawks' offense looked sharp in the first half. Russell Wilson completed 13 of 18 passes for 206 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. Doug Baldwin looked good, catching all four of his targets for 69 yards. And Kasen Williams once again impressed. Williams had a pair of grabs for 28 yards and a touchdown. He's having a great preseason and likely playing his way onto the roster.
Seahawks LT George Fant was carted off the field with 8:49 left in the second quarter against the Vikings. Fant was moving backwards in pass protection when center Justin Britt, who was on the ground, rolled into him. Fant immediately grabbed his right knee. He remained on the field for several minutes. Fant started 10 games at left tackle last season and is expected to start there again this year.
Seahawks DE Frank Clark left Friday's game against the Vikings in the first quarter with a hand injury, according to the team's radio broadcast. Clark went into the locker room after suffering the injury.
Seahawks WR Kasen Williams has been brilliant so far this preseason. On the first drive against the Vikings, he had two catches for 28 yards and a touchdown. So far in the preseason, he has six catches on six targets for 147 yards and a score. What's been most impressive is that Williams has made a bunch of contested catches. And tonight, his receptions came against the starters.
For the second straight week, Michael Bennett sat for the national anthem. Seahawks center Justin Britt stood next to Bennett with his hand on Bennett's right shoulder, and the two hugged after the anthem. Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane stood facing Bennett with his back to flag and the field.
Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise is not in uniform. Had practiced all week and was expected to play. Expect a heavy dose of Eddie Lacy, Chris Carson and Alex Collins in the first half. Thomas Rawls is sidelined with an ankle injury.
Ben Roethlisberger said he set a goal of no turnovers in training camp, "and I did that." The Steelers quarterback set out to challenge himself.
Giants linebacker Keenan Robinson is back in the concussion protocol. Not good news. He's been dealing with this for weeks. Only returned to practice for a few days.
The Chicago Bears announced the following players will be inactive for Saturday's preseason game at Arizona: Jonathan Anderson, Joshua Bellamy, Bryce Callahan, Jordan Howard, Jeremy Langford, Kyle Long, Danny Trevathan, Mitch Unrein and Markus Wheaton.
Chicago Bears running back Jordan Howard suffered a minor corneal abrasion in Friday's walk-through practice and did not travel to Arizona for Saturday's preseason game.
Falcons coach Dan Quinn said the other day he wasn't content with his swing tackle situation. So team is signing Austin Pasztor, who started 16 games with the Browns last season and played right tackle. Pasztor played with Falcons center Alex Mack in 2015. Started career with Jacksonville. Played college ball at Virginia. Has 43 career starts in 58 total games. Pasztor's agent, Sunny Shah, broke the news via Twitter
