Seattle held its first pads-only practice. Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck came up limping on the second-to-last play of the morning practice. He was not hit on the play, but something happened during his drop back as he went to plant. He limped away from the play, went and sat on a water cooler while talking to the trainer and practice was over. He talked with coach Mike Holmgren after practice, and walked off on his own. He was favoring his left leg, but was not limping terribly.
The center for the first-unit offense: Steve Vallos, a second-year lineman. Starting center Chris Spencer did not practice, but appeared on the field in a jersey after rehab work. Chris Gray was in shorts and a T-shirt when he walked out of the Seahawks facility early in practice. He tweaked his back during Saturday afternoon's practice and was not on the field Sunday morning.
Ray Willis and Walter Jones both practiced. Patrick Kerney was in pads early, but was not participating by the end, taking off his pads. He is coming back from offseason shoulder surgery.
Marcus Tubbs, Deion Branch and Ryan Plackemeier are not practicing. Neither did Will Herring.
Punter Reggie Hodges was downright impressive this morning with his booming kicks. In one impressive succession of punts, he had punts of 53 yards, 45, 47, 35 and then back up to 50 and those kicks are from the line of scrimmage, not from the point of the punt. The 53-yarder sent Bobby Engram scurrying backward to catch it and it still ended up over his head.
Lineup updates: I posted some of the information on first-unit and second-unit earlier on Sunday. With both Willis and Jones practicing, it's worth updating.
1st unit O-line, Sunday A.M.: LT Walter Jones, LG Mike Wahle, C Steve Vallos, RG Rob Sims, RT Sean Locklear.
2nd unit O-line, Sunday A.M.: LT Floyd Womack/William Robinson, LG Pat Murray, C Mansfield Wrotto, RG Ray Willis, RT Kyle Williams.
1st unit D-line, Sunday A.M.: LE Baraka Atkins, DT Rocky Bernard, DT Brandon Mebane, RE Darryl Tapp.

Part of the game and old age, ya don't bend like ya use- ta....or something like that? I use to think that Matt was married to that Hasselbeck gal on the t.v. show the View, they said she is married to an NFL QB, didn't know he had a brother, and didn't say who at first, use to think wow, what a luck dog, play NFL football, make big money and, have her dink around with...wrong!
