Seahawks waive rookie safety Dion Bailey

RENTON, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks waived/injured rookie safety Dion Bailey Tuesday. Bailey, who played college football at USC, suffered a severe ankle sprain in Saturday’s mock game.

The team signed rookie cornerback Trey Wolfe to replace Bailey. Wolfe, who played college football at Fort Valley State, participated in Seattle's rookie minicamp in May.

Defensive tackle Tony McDaniel did not practice Tuesday and defensive end Michael Bennett worked out on a limited basis. There was no word on their condition, but it’s likely both players were just resting before the upcoming preseason opener Thursday night at Denver.

A bigger concern is rookie receiver Kevin Norwood, who was not on the practice field Tuesday. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll did not address the media Tuesday, but he said Monday that Norwood's foot injury was something they still were trying to figure out.

Running back Marshawn Lynch was close to full participation Tuesday, taking part in a few of the team drills and catching a couple of swing passes out of the backfield.

Wide receiver Phil Bates returned to practice after missing Monday's workout because he wasn't feeling well.

Left guard James Carpenter (calf) returned to practice on a limited basis. Middle linebacker Bobby Wagner (hamstring) and outside linebackers Malcolm Smith (offseason ankle surgery) and rookie Kevin Pierre-Louis (oblique) still are out.

Defensive backs DeShawn Shead and Akeem Auguste missed practice for the second consecutive day.
