Michael misses practice, Harvin returns

7/27/2014

RENTON, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks running back Christine Michael did not practice Sunday, but coach Pete Carroll said Michael is OK.

“He just banged his shoulder a little bit,” Carroll said of Michael. “The trainers think he’ll be back on Tuesday.”

The players have the day off Monday after practicing in pads for the first time at training camp on Sunday.

Receiver Percy Harvin was back full speed Sunday after staying out of team drills Saturday. Carroll said it’s part of a plan to allow Harvin to take a break every few days and not overdo it in camp.

Rookie receiver Kevin Norwood missed practice for the second consecutive day because of a sore foot, but he is expected back Tuesday.

Starting left tackle Russell Okung, who had offseason toe surgery, was in pads Sunday, but did not take part in any drills.

“We talked last night about Okung,” Carroll said. “He probably is about two weeks away so we’re really sure he’s ready to roll.”

Defensive tackle Jesse Williams went full speed Sunday after missing most of Saturday’s practice, but Carroll said they also were resting Williams Saturday.

Rookie defensive tackle Jimmy Staten is out with a hyper-extended knee and a pulled hamstring, which Carroll said could sideline Staten for a while.

Outside linebacker Malcolm Smith (ankle) and strong safety Kam Chancellor (hip) still are recovering from offseason surgery, but both players are expected back soon.
