Heller, Bumpus return to practice -- 8.06.2008, A.M. practice

Posted by Danny O'Neil

The Seahawks practiced on one of the three grass fields outside their new team headquarters in Renton right on the shore of Lake Washington. Skies were clear, the breeze was slight and blowing to the northwest.

Tight end Will Heller and wide receiver Michael Bumpus returned to practice after sitting out Tuesday because each had a tight hamstring.

I'll be posting a more complete description of the facility later, but I'll start out by sketching some notes from practice.

  • Fullback Owen Schmitt laid a pretty stiff block on D.D. Lewis, blocking to open a hole for Justin Forsett.

  • Defensive end Baraka Atkins appeared to hurt himself during a goal-line drill. He was slow getting up and tended to by trainers.

  • Tight end John Carlson made a leaping catch in the corner of the end zone, jumping and then making a strong finger-tip grab on a fade route with Lance Laury providing good coverage.

  • Cornerback Derrick Johnson -- a former UW player -- was signed to the team on Wednesday, but injured his left foot during his first workout with the team. He could not finish the practice. Johnson was signed to fill the roster spot previously held by Wesly Mallard, a linebacker who was placed on injured reserve. Mallard injured his hamstring previously during this camp.
