The Seattle Seahawks returned from their bye week

The Seattle Seahawks returned from their bye week
with two key players back on the field after missing the first six games due to injuries.The Seahawks welcomed back linebacker K.J. Wright and tight end Ed Dickson to practice Monday as they began preparations for Sunday's game against Detroit.Wright's return has been a long time coming after he underwent what was deemed minor arthroscopic knee surgery following Seattle's third preseason game in August. The team initially believed Wright would be back within a few weeks Joey Bosa Jersey , but a setback in his recovery extended the rehab and ultimately led to the starting linebacker missing nearly two months."We're not too bad right now," coach Pete Carroll said. "We're fortunate we're coming out the last few games we've made it through for the most part. Guys felt good coming out of last week and going into the break. It helped us and to get a few guys back, too, it's a nice little boost."Dickson was placed on the non-football injury list before the start of training camp due to groin and quadriceps injuries and never made it into camp, meaning he had to be a spectator for the first six games of the season. Dickson was likely ready to return a couple of weeks ago, but being on the NFL list required him to miss six games.Dickson's return will be a big boost to a position that suffered a setback when rookie Will Dissly injured a patellar tendon in the Week 4 victory over Arizona. Carroll said Dickson ramped up the intensity of his workouts in the past couple weeks in the hopes of being able to play this Sunday."They've been working really hard so this isn't a big jump for them. That's part of the rehab, particularly for Ed who has had a long time to work at this," Carroll said. "He's been running really hard so he should not feel like it's a big step for him to get back on the practice field and should be able to play extensively on the weekend should he make it through the week."Also back at practice for Seattle was rookie defensive lineman Rasheem Green, who had missed three games with an ankle injury Authentic Austin Ekeler Jersey , and tight end Nick Vannett after he missed the game in London due to a back injury.NOTES: Carroll said LB Mychal Kendricks, indefinitely suspended by the NFL for his conviction on insider trading charges, had a scheduled hearing with the league Monday. Carroll said he was hoping to hear something from the league Tuesday. ... Carroll said he reassured the team that nothing is expected to change in the wake of owner Paul Allen's death last week. "We're fine. Everything is going to be like we've been doing it We'll carry on with the same intensity and expectations and support and all of that, and that it was our job to carry on in the fashion that Paul wanted us to." ... Seattle claimed LB Emmanuel Ellerbee off waivers from the Los Angeles Chargers after safety T.J. Green left the team. Carroll said Green indicated he didn't want to continue playing.Camp battles coming down to the wire Training camp is almost over. In fact, Thursday the 23rd (2 days from now) is the last day of camp, and yet, there seem to be a handful of positional battles that are looking very close and very much undecided. These players are running out of time to make their impressions and earn a roster spot, because while training camp ends in 2 days, cut day is 9 days away.So what position battles are coming down to the wire?RB3 - The battle for RB3 has been fun to watch so far. Russell Hansbrough has looked very impressive each time he touches the ball. He performed well in week 1 of the preseason (averaging 7 YPC on his 3 carries and looking solid as a pass blocker) and looking very much at home while getting touches with the 1s in practice. The team rested him during preseason week 2 and Detrez Newsome took advantage of having the stage at RB and looked very impressive as well. Newsome through 2 preseason games has 81 rushing yards and a touchdown on 23 carries while hauling in 56 receiving yards on 7 catches. Meanwhile Youth Darius Philon Jersey , we haven’t even seen 7th round pick Justin Jackson yet as he’s been dealing with an injury. This battle is going to be fun to watch in week 3, especially if the team continues to rest Austin Ekeler, who returned to practice today. WR - The bottom of the WR depth chart looks very promising this year. Both Geremy Davis and Artavis Scott have looked very good in the preseason and in practice. They seem to answer each other during the games, each bringing in multiple nice catches in both games.Scott seems to have a built in advantage as he is also a capable returner on special teams, while Davis provides a bigger body at the WR position. Through 2 games Scott has 80 yards receiving on 7 catches, while averaging 24.5 yards per kick return and 2.75 yards per punt return. Geremy Davis has 97 yards and a touchdown on 6 catches. Not to mention, like the RB battle, 6th round pick Dylan Cantrell was looking promising in practice before suffering a bone bruise in his knee. They are not going to make this an easy decision for the coaches come cut day. Kicker - The kicking competition continues to look pretty even. Roberto Aguayo and Caleb Sturgis are pretty close in practice kicking (Sturgis is 21 of 28 and Aguayo is 23 of 29 per Eric Williams of ESPN) while in games Sturgis is 1 of 2, converting from 45 and missing from 41 http://www.chargersauthorizedshops.com/a...ell-jersey , and Aguayo is 1 of 1 with a FG from 39 yards. Aguayo has also handled all the extra point kicks, he is 5 for 5 there, and has handled all of the kickoff duties which have looked pretty good as well. Overall it looks like Aguayo is kicking a bit better right now, but the team did give Sturgis a $4.5M contract with $1M guaranteed this offseason (although according to overthecap.com cutting him now only results in $500K in dead money this year).QB2 - The backup QB battle is still dragging on, but it really shouldn’t be. Through both preseason games and all the reports we have seen from practice, Geno Smith should be QB2. However, the coaches are constantly making it sound like this battle is still all tied up. Even today after practice, Ken Whisenhunt was asked if Geno had done enough to separate himself from Cardale Jones and Wiz insisted that this is still a battle and they have both looked great. Honestly, I think they might just be trying to protect Cardale’s ego because anyone paying attention can see that Geno has been the better QB this preseason and camp. Other loose ends - There are a couple other positions that have some loose ends that is a bit harder to figure out what the team will do. The bottom of the LB depth chart is interesting Denzel Perryman Jersey , Nick Dzubnar has been here a while and is very good on special teams, howeverUDFA D’Juan Hines offers more upside athletically and has looked good on special teams himself. Hines has also out-snapped Dzubnar on defense through 2 games. The bottom of the CB depth chart will also be interesting to see what is done. Brandon Facyson has played fairly well as a corner, Tony Brown has good special teams potential, but the guy who has stood out most is 2nd year player Jeff Richards who has 8 tackles and a PBU, not to mention great size at the position at 6’2 210. Oh and I guess we have to include Craig Mager but he has been mostly invisible through camp and the preseason so far.
