The Seahawks were back in Kirkland today for practice. Nothing new on the injury front -- the same guys who have been out or are choosing not to attend were still out Wednesday.
Come to find out that rookie DT Kevin Brown is not with the team because UCLA hasn't held graduation ceremonies yet, so per NFL rules he cannot set foot inside team headquarters until then.
Observations from today:
-WR Jordan Kent had a good May camp, and he had a good practice Wednesday. He got the better of cornerbacks Jordan Babineaux and Kelly Jennings for catches on deep routes.
-RB Julius Jones has shown signs of being the real deal. He put a move on a very fast linebacker, starter Julian Peterson, and got himself wide open with plenty of separation during a drill in which linebackers were covering tight ends, running backs and fullbacks on short passes.
-Special teams coach Bruce DeHaven broke out the microphone/speaker contraption, urging on his charges on kick coverage drills. At one point, coach Mike Holmgren turned around to look at reporters on the sideline and said "I want to get one of those things so you can hear everything I say at practice." He was being sarcastic, of course.

What a difference a day makes. Anthony Russo, the former UW wide receiver whom the Seahawks signed as an undrafted free agent after the April draft, has been released. I just saw him at team headquarters yesterday.
The Seahawks have signed WR Trent Shelton to replace Russo on the roster. Russo did not practice Monday or Tuesday because of injury. Shelton is 6 feet, 202 pounds and played in college at Baylor before spending 18 days in September of 2007 on the Indianapolis Colts' practice squad.
Also, latest word is that the team is practicing in Kirkland today, as the rain has let up enough to allow for that. The team moved practice to the UW Tuesday.
