Seahawks receiver David Moore is expected to be sidelined past the start of the regular season due to a shoulder injury, coach Pete Carroll said Friday. Early indications are that Moore is not expected to require surgery, a source told ESPN.com. But his injury is another setback for a receiver corps that no longer has Doug Baldwin and is already without rookie DK Metcalf, who is recovering from a recent knee surgery that has his availability for Week 1 in question.

Seahawks first-round pick L.J. Collier was on the field Thursday doing some light running in warmups without a helmet. Pete Carroll said Wednesday that Collier is not yet able to cut at full speed on the ankle he sprained early in training camp. "He's doing a lot of stuff," Carroll said when asked if Collier is closer to coming back. "He's up and moving and all that and AlterG and all those kinds of things. Not quite ready to unload on it where he can run up on it and change direction. So, not quite."

Russell Wilson recently realized his long-time goal of becoming an owner of a professional sports franchise when he joined the ownership group of the MLS' Seattle Sounders. He said the process started last fall and that one of his motivations was making sure the Sounders didn't relocate. "We really care about Seattle," he said. "It's a special place for us and we wanted to make sure it didn't move anywhere else, to be honest with you."

The one-year deal Ziggy Ansah signed with the Seahawks includes up to $4.25 million in incentives, according to a source. Here is the breakdown. DEFENSIVE SNAPS: 35%-44.99% = $500K or 45%-54.99% = $1M or 55% and above = $1.5M; SACKS: 4.5-6 = $500K or 6.5-7.5 = $1M or 8-9.5 = $1.5M or 10-11.5 = $2M or 12 and above = $2.5M; OTHER: $250K if the Seahawks make the playoffs and Ansah is named a starter or backup in the Pro Bowl. Ansah had four sacks last year and played about 15% of Detroit's defensive snaps. He did not make the Pro Bowl nor did the Lions reach the playoffs. That means all of his incentives are considered “not likely to be earned” and thus do not count against Seattle's salary cap right now. Ansah's deal has a base value of $9 million, which includes $6 million guaranteed and $3 million in per-game roster bonuses. The incentives push the max value to $13.25 million. He has yet to practice as he comes back from shoulder surgery and a recent groin injury.

With the Champions Tour in town this week for the Boeing Classic at Snoqualmie Ridge, the Seahawks held their annual par 3 challenge. Tour player Brandt Jobe prevailed over kicker Jason Myers and long-snapper Tyler Ott by hitting three of five shots onto a green floating in Lake Washington about 105 yards from the edge of the Seahawks' practice field. The wind combined with a small green made it a tricky shot. Myers, a 6.5 handicap, went 2 of 5 while Ott stuck one ball on. "That's pretty good right there," Jobe remarked after one of Myers' swings.

Pete Carroll said rookie safety Marquise Blair is day to day with back spasms that forced him out of Sunday night's game at Minnesota. "He just didn't quite make it back today," Carroll said. "He tried and wasn't able to go." Blair, a second-round pick, is competing with Tedric Thompson and Delano Hill to start at safety alongside Bradley McDougald. Hill is finally back from the hip injury that ended his 2018 season and will play in Seattle's third preseason game, according to Carroll. Also expected back this week are running backs C.J. Prosise and J.D. McKissic as well as receiver Amara Darboh. Linebacker Shaquem Griffin is still not back from his bruised knee.

Here's everything Pete Carroll said Wednesday about rookie receiver DK Metcalf, who just had knee surgery. Carroll's answer to the last question suggests the team is less concerned about Metcalf possibly missing Week 1 and more concerned about all the practice/preseason reps he'll miss in the meantime.

Paxton Lynch will not play in the Seahawks' third preseason game after taking a hit to the head that forced him out of Sunday night's game at Minnesota, according to Pete Carroll. Geno Smith, who didn't play in that game, is back at practice following minor knee surgery and will play Saturday against the Chargers. Carroll said of Lynch: "We're gonna hold him out this week. He didn't quite make it back yet after passing all of the protocol and all, and we're just going to take care of him. We think it's a good idea. Geno needs to play a lot and so it'll work out. But really this is because we want to take care of Paxton. He took a nasty hit. His neck is still sore." Lynch appeared to have made up ground on Smith after the first preseason game, but the competition to back up Russell Wilson remains very much up in the air.

Pete Carroll said DK Metcalf had "minimal surgery" on his knee with "minimal findings." Still no specific timetable but Carroll reiterated his optimism that Metcalf won't be sidelined for long, saying: "We'll go week to week with it, see how he does. We really don't have any concern that he won't get back soon."‬ Asked about Metcalf playing Week 1, Carroll only reiterated that they're taking it week by week.

Another Seahawks roster move to add depth to their offensive line: they've signed tackle Brian Wallace and waived safety Jalen Harvey to make room on their 90-man roster. Both are UDFAs. The Seahawks signed guard Landon Turner yesterday while placing Demetrius Knox on IR. They were a bit thin at tackle with George Fant working his way back from an ankle sprain. Jamarco Jones didn't play Sunday night.

Seahawks roster move: they've put guard Demetrius Knox, an undrafted free agent, on IR after he hurt his quad Sunday. Seattle signed guard Landon Turner, who has played in seven career games with one start (all with New Orleans in 2016). He was with Carolina this offseason.

Seahawks rookie WR Metcalf set for knee surgery

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told reporters Sunday night that rookie wide receiver DK Metcalf needs knee surgery, but said there's optimism Metcalf could be ready for the start of the regular season.

Among the positives from the Seahawks' injury-marred preseason loss to Minnesota: the play of defensive tackle Poona Ford. The 2018 undrafted free agent appeared to force a fumble when he brought down running back Alexander Mattison in the backfield for a loss (Mattison was ruled down). Ford finished with three tackles on Minnesota's first three possessions, not counting one that was negated by a penalty. Preseason performances can be misleading because of the varying levels of competition, but the Vikings started four of their five first-team offensive linemen with the exception being at right tackle. So Ford was not doing that damage against backups. He's in line to start, at least while Jarran Reed misses the first six games while serving a suspension, and is one of the Seahawks' breakout candidates.

Vikings top Seahawks 25-19 behind crisp preseason passing

Rookie tight end Irv Smith Jr. and backup wide receiver Brandon Zylstra each had touchdown receptions for Minnesota and the Vikings displayed depth and versatility in their passing game in a 25-19 exhibition victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday...

There were a few things to like on the two possessions from Russell Wilson and the Seahawks' No. 1 offense. Maybe tops on that list: good pass-protection, which has long been an issue for Seattle. The Seahawks' offensive line can feel good about that but will regret a pair of false starts (Justin Britt, Germain Ifedi), especially after penalties marred Seattle's preseason opener. Wilson, making his preseason debut, completed six of nine attempts for 82 yards, with two of his misses coming on throws that were slightly off target. Those two possessions resulted in a punt and a field goal. The pass-protection from Seattle's backup linemen has been problematic through two possessions quarterbacked by Paxton Lynch.

Seahawks general manager John Schneider said during his pregame radio interview that DK Metcalf will not play in tonight's preseason game against Minnesota. "He's got a sore leg," Schneider told 710 ESPN Seattle, via the station's website. "We're going to check that out and be cautious with him, and play it day by day and see how it goes." Metcalf took part in all practices this past week that were open to media; Saturday's practice was closed.

One position group that bears watching in the Seahawks' second preseason game is the one with two starting spots up for grabs: the secondary. Still undetermined is who will play safety alongside Bradley McDougald and who will be the first option at nickelback (which is essentially a starter given how Seattle's defense is in nickel about two-thirds of the time). Rookie second-round pick Marquise Blair lived up to his reputation as a thumper in the preseason opener but drew a flag for one of his hits. His coverage skills drew praise from Pete Carroll after he picked off Paxton Lynch on the final play of Friday's practice. More plays like that will help Blair unseat Tedric Thompson, who has worked with the No. 1 defense all offseason. It's hard to imagine Delano Hill winning a starting spot given how much time he's missed coming back from his hip injury. At nickelback, Carroll said Kalan Reed has earned the right to get the first crack this week over Akeem King, veteran Jamar Taylor and rookie fourth-round pick Ugo Amadi, though all should play tonight. Taylor has made a strong push of late.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Pete Carroll was typically tight-lipped about which Seahawks will and won't play in tonight's second preseason game at Minnesota, but the expectation is that Russell Wilson will get at least a series and maybe more depending on how things go. Wilson and most of Seattle's veteran starters didn't play last week. It would not hurt to give rookie receiver DK Metcalf some game reps with Wilson after he nearly missed two long receptions on slight overthrows last week from Geno Smith. Smith returned to practice Friday, seven days after surgery to remove a cyst in his knee, but there's no word on whether he'll play. Seeing Paxton Lynch gain the ground that he did in the backup quarterback competition should give Smith all the motivation he needs to get back in action. Even if Smith is available tonight, it would make sense to give Lynch the first turn after Wilson in order to see him against better players than the ones he played against during his strong showing in the second half last week.
