News: Lynch had 16 yards and a touchdown on three carries in Friday's preseason game against the Bears.
Impact: Lynch played just one possession, making what might be his only appearance of the preseason. His role is still safe, and the Seahawks should have better injury luck on the offensive line this year.

News: Smith was back at practice Tuesday.
Impact: Smith has been sidelined throughout the entire offseason while recovering from ankle surgery this spring. He showed Tuesday that he's itching to get back to work with his teammates. Smith may not play this Friday in Seattle's third preseason game against the Chicago Bears, but he is on track to be ready by the start of the regular season.

News: Lynch made his preseason debut Friday but played only two snaps.
Impact: Lynch, who held out the first week of training camp, will likely see more action in the third exhibition game.
Sat. Aug 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Daniels got his first taste of game action Friday and scored on a six-yard touchdown run.
Impact: Daniels, who totaled 34 yards on 2-of-2 passing, has no shot to make the roster, though he looked good Friday. His best hope is the practice squad.
Sat. Aug 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackson, who was 5-of-7 passing for 47 yards in Seattle's first preseason game, didn't play Friday against the Chargers.
Impact: The Seahawks wanted to see more out of Terrell Pryor and give B.J. Daniels his first taste of action. Daniels has no shot to make the roster, but Pryor could bump Jackson from his backup role. Jackson's steadiness, though, is probably more highly valued over Pryor's potential dual-threat ability.
Sat. Aug 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Pryor was 1-of-4 passing for 10 yards Friday, but he ran three times for 59 yards, including a 44-yard touchdown, in Seattle's second preseason game against the Chargers.
Impact: Pryor is competing for the backup job with Tarvaris Jackson, who didn't play. Although Pryor didn't get much chance to throw because the Seahawks were blowing out the Chargers, his touchdown run was a designed play, and he showed why the Seahawks are taking such a long look at him. Jackson, though, is the incumbent and is more steady, if less dynamic. The Seahawks likely won't keep three quarterbacks.
Sat. Aug 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Matthews, who is competing for the final wideout job, caught one pass for 10 yards Friday in Seattle's second exhibition game.
Impact: The CFL project attracted a lot of attention entering camp because he is 6-5. But he hasn't done much to stand out. Unless injured rookie Kevin Norwood (foot) is put on IR, there doesn't seem to be room for Matthews.
Fri. Aug 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Richardson has been as impressive as any of Seattle's other young players in training camp, ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Richardson has flashed his elite speed in practice, but he went without a catch on one target in Friday's second preseason game. In the first exhibition game he had four receptions for 37 yards. Richardson is the fourth receiver in the offense, but how many opportunities he gets remains to be seen.
Fri. Aug 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Willson caught two passes for 27 yards on two targets in Friday's preseason game against the Chargers.
Impact: Zach Miller's starting job is safe, but Willson figures to poach some targets as the clear-cut No. 2 tight end, now that Anthony McCoy (Achilles) has been placed on IR. Willson's more interesting in dynasty leagues than redraft formats; even an injury to Miller would leave Willson as nothing better than the starting tight end in an offense that primarily uses the position for blocking.

News: Kearse did not catch a pass in Friday's preseason game against the Chargers.
Impact: While the Seahawks obviously don't figure to do a ton of passing, they still need someone to serve as the No. 3 wide receiver behind Percy Harvin and Doug Baldwin. Kearse is the clear favorite, albeit for a role that doesn't figure to come with many targets. That said, he's shown big-play ability in the past, and is just one injury away from potentially playing 50-plus snaps per game.
Fri. Aug 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Michael gained 45 yards on eight carries in Friday's preseason matchup with the Chargers,, but also fumbled for the second consecutive week.
Impact: Meanwhile, Robert Turbin rumbled for 81 yards, including a 47-yarder, and a touchdown on eight carries without dropping the ball. Given that Turbin started both preseason games, is the incumbent and has never fumbled in 184 career touches, Michael will need to do better if he wants to move up to No. 2 on the depth chart.
Fri. Aug 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Miller caught one pass for 37 yards in Friday's preseason game against the Chargers.
Impact: Miller's a good player with good job security, but his team doesn't pass very often, and focuses on the wide receivers when it does. The targets left behind by Golden Tate will likely go to Percy Harvin, though there's always some chance the Seahawks could opt to make greater use of Miller's solid, albeit unspectacular, receiving skills.
Fri. Aug 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Baldwin caught one pass for two yards on two targets in Friday's preseason game against the Chargers.
Impact: Though his stat line was nothing to get excited about, Baldwin drew a long pass-interference penalty, and then later had a 13-yard touchdown reception overturned on replay. He and Percy Harvin are the top two options in the Seattle passing game.
Fri. Aug 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Turbin ran for 81 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries in Friday against the Chargers in Seattle's second exhibition game.
Impact: Turbin handled most of the first-team work and played well, but Christine Michael was also a factor with the starters. Michael fumbled for the second game in a row, however. Turbin broke a 47-yard run, showing speed and deliver a tough stiff-arm that got him 10 more yards at the end of the play. Michael gets a lot of hype, but Turbin is still the No. 2 running back.
Fri. Aug 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Harvin caught four passes for 31 yards on five targets in Friday's preseason game against the Chargers.
Impact: Harvin erased any questions about his health following a minor incident in practice. He still carries some added injury risk, but Harvin said the hip surgery he had last season has made him faster this season. "I've actually reached some gears that I didn't know I had. I'm feeling very, very fast right now," he told the team's official site. Harvin showed his speed on a couple of screen passes Friday. He also showed how his presence impacts the offense, as Zach Miller got wide open for a 37-yard reception because the safety abandoned the middle third to provide help on Harvin outside. Expect the Seahawks to use Harvin in multiple ways this season, including running the ball and on kickoff returns.

News: Irvin, who has not participated in training camp because of a hip injury, will return to practice next week, the team's official site reports.
Impact: Irvin underwent surgery in early June. He is expected to be ready for the season opener, but that's not a lock. The 2012 first-round pick has a lot to prove this season. The Seahawks tried to used him at OLB last season after he played his rookie season as a defensive end. How exactly he's used this year remains to be seen.
Fri. Aug 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Wagner (hamstring) is not expected to play in Friday's second preseason game, the team's official site reports.
Impact: Coach Pete Carroll said Wagner would return to practice next week. The Seahawks are content to bring Wagner along slowly, as he's the starting middle linebacker.

News: Lynch was cleared Wednesday of any involvement in an alleged incident Sunday morning in Seattle, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.
Impact: Lynch was reportedly investigated for assault and personal property damage early this week, but he maintained his innocence throughout, and the authorities ultimately concurred.
Tue. Aug 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Although Harvin appeared to injure his ankle/foot Tuesday, coach Pete Carroll said Harvin is "fine" and merely had his foot stepped on, Everett Herald writer John Boyle reports.
Impact: Assuming Carroll's on the mark with his diagnosis, Harvin shouldn't sit out long at all, with any absence likely just precautionary in the first place. Still, it'd be nice to see a player with Harvin's injury history make it through training camp without accumulating nicks and bruises.
Tue. Aug 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: The Seahawks said Tuesday that allegations of assault and personal property damage against Lynch are "bogus," the Seattle Times reports.
Impact: Lynch is being investigated by police for an alleged incident that occurred early Sunday morning. It does not involve domestic violence or sexual assault, however. "While we maintain the utmost respect for the investigative process, after speaking with Marshawn, we are comfortable these accusations are bogus," the Seahawks said in a statement.

News: Police have cleared Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch in an assault and property damage case.
Impact: The Bellevue Police Department issued a statement late Wednesday night saying Lynch wasn't involved and that the case remained open. The police department expressed appreciation for cooperation from Lynch and the Seahawks. Police initially released a statement Monday mentioning Lynch. The Seahawks released a statement a day later saying they believed the accusations to be "bogus" after speaking with Lynch.

News: Lynch is being investigated for assault and personal property damage by suburban Seattle police for an alleged incident early Sunday morning, the Seattle Times reports.
Impact: The Bellevue Police Department released a statement Monday that said it received an allegation Sunday afternoon about an incident that occurred at 2:30 a.m. in a downtown Bellevue apartment. The statement said investigators are "in the process of gathering the facts of this alleged incident, including verifying whether or not Mr. Lynch was in fact involved. No arrests have been made." No domestic violence or sexual assault was involved in the allegation.

News: Lynch could play Friday against the Chargers in Seattle's second exhibition game, the Seattle Times reports.
Impact: Lynch was brought along slowly last week after holding out the first week or so of training camp, but coach Pete Carroll said Lynch looks like he's "in great shape." "He's getting a lot closer," Carroll said. "He had a very good practice [Sunday]. We're just trying to do it properly. I really liked the way he got after it. He got stuff in all phases of the practice. Caught some balls well, blocked well, ran the ball real nice...This is really, I think, the first week he has a chance to really compete and he brought a great attitude."
