Stop the press, Womack is back -- 8.12.2008 P.M. edition

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Floyd Womack was on the field Tuesday morning, participating in individual drills though he wasn't wearing his helmet and no pads. Well, he was back on the field in the afternoon this time his dome protected with a helmet and taking part in all drills. No pads, though. But then again, the afternoons have been unpadded practices.

Kyle Williams remains working out with the second-unit offensive line.

Another cruel twist, Bernard limps off -- 8.12.2008, A.M. edition

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Rocky Bernard went down toward the end of Tuesday's morning practice after appearing to injure his right ankle. He was helped off the field, then sat down and was evaluated. As injuries go, it might not be quite that extreme, though. He was putting weight on the ankle and his limp lessened as time passed.

But that further depletes a position in which the Seahawks released Marcus Tubbs and still haven't gotten Larry Tripplett back at practice.

Tubbs' open roster spot has been filled by Nick Jones, an offensive linemen.

Michael Bumpus made a pair of impressive catches in the seven-on-seven passing portion of practice. One was a diving grab behind D.D. Lewis that was especially impressive. The coaches like the way Bumpus competes, and he plays in the mold of a slot receiver who's shifty and sure-handed whereas Jordan Kent is tall, fast and his long strides make him a split end.

Logan Payne made a diving catch behind linebacker Leroy Hill. Payne is wearing a red jersey to denote non-contact as he recovers from broken rib, but the man still was willing to lay out for a reception.

The other reception worth noting was by John Carlson, who made a diving catch behind Hill in seven-on-seven drills.
