Atkins OK -- 8.06.2008 P.M. practice

Posted by Danny O'Neil

A tip of the cap is in order for coach Mike Holmgren, said quarterback Matt Hasselbeck. That's because the Seahawks practiced without helmets on Wednesday afternoon, instead wearing camouflage caps with a Seahawks logo.

Usually the team practices without pads in the afternoon, just wearing shells under the jerseys, but they generally have helmets on. Not Wednesday. The team had a longer-than-expected practice in the morning and then Wednesday's innovative practice technique.

"What I tried to stress in the huddle was, 'Hey, this is a gift that he's given us. We've got some injuries right now,' " Hasselbeck said. " 'Let's have the best practice that we can have assignment-wise so that he thinks highly of this idea and he'll do it again some time.' "

One injury that doesn't appear to be much of a worry was Baraka Atkins, who appeared to injure himself during the morning practice, but was back on the field in the afternoon.
