Seen And Heard: Seahawks Camp Monday August 1

SEATTLE (CBS/1090 The Fan) — The Seahawks kicked off day three of training camp Monday. Here’s a quick recap…

Roll Call

Tight end Cooper Helfet was absent again after injuring his foot in practice Saturday — a broken bone that will require surgery, head coach Pete Carroll told reporters today. The injury also means that Helfet’s battle for a spot on the Seahawks’ 53-man roster (which will likely include three tight ends) just became, undoubtedly, more difficult. Running back C.J. Prosise was kept out of practice with a hamstring injury; he’s expected to miss 7-10 days. Carroll also says defensive end Frank Clark is dealing with a minor calf injury.

Play Of The Day

The team’s first day with shoulder pads made for a more physical practice, with a few leaping catches that drew cheers from fans and a bit of a scuffle between two players.

Rookie guard Germain Ifedi and defensive end Michael Bennett got a little physical during drills, and were quickly separated by teammates.

“I know there is a little bit of an A&M issue going on down there,” Carroll said of the tiff afterward. “Which is fun.”

The Seattle Post Intellegencer’s Stephen Cohen Tweeted a comment from Ifedi’s college coach in April, in which he noted the Aggie guard’s competitiveness:

 Carroll said there’s nothing wrong with that at his camp:

“Willing to stand up for himself on the first day, pretty good.”

Tight end Luke Willson leapt for a catch from quarterback Russell Wilson that drew cheers from fans. An interception from Richard Sherman also drew cries (though an offsides call would have negated it).

Not all of today’s “great plays” happened on the field: middle linebacker Bobby Wagner gifted his gloves to one young fan after practice.

Quote Of The Day
Ask about the general feeling of this year’s camp, safety Kam Chancellor told reporters it felt, to him, most like the Super Bowl XLVIII year.  Carroll disagreed, offering his own take: 

“I feel like this is a unique vibe. I think there is something going on here that’s come over a few years’ time. I think there is a little bit of a frustration that we are not really in control of the things like we would like and everybody’s worked with a mindset of bringing it for this camp right now, for the guys that are sitting across from them, and I really like it.”
