C.J. Prosise suffered a strained groin in pregame warmups ahead of the second preseason game.

He's missed the past two practices, being limited to light running drills on a side field with trainers. Prosise working off to the side and missing practice has been a common sight in his year-plus with the team. And OL coach/run-game coordinator Tom Cable admitted the team is starting to get concerned Prosise will never be able to stay healthy for long periods of time. "I think we all are," Cable said. Prosise has a laundry list of injuries dating back to college.

Seahawks OL coach Tom Cable confirmed Tuesday that Matt Tobin and Rees Odhiambo are battling for the starting job at left tackle.

The Seahawks acquired Tobin from Philadelphia after losing George Fant to a season-ending knee injury. Odhiambo will start Friday's preseason game against Kansas City with Tobin coming off the bench. The rest of Seattle's O line is mostly set with Luke Joeckel at left guard, Justin Britt at center, Germain Ifedi at right tackle and Mark Glowinski and Oday Aboushi competing at right guard.

Seahawks acquired T/G Matt Tobin and a 2018 seventh-round pick from the Eagles in exchange for a 2018 fifth-round pick.

Seattle is scrambling for tackle options after losing George Fant. Tobin started at right guard for the 2015 Eagles, showing promise as a run blocker but getting destroyed in pass protection. He was demoted into a deep reserve role last season. Tobin should only be viewed as depth for the Seahawks.

The Seahawks will give 2016 third-round pick Rees Odhiambo the first crack at winning their starting left tackle job.

The Seahawks are looking for a replacement after losing George Fant (ACL). At 6-foot-4, 314 with 33 1/4-inch arms, Odhiambo lacks optimal left tackle size but isn't terribly far off the typical size thresholds. Either way, the Seahawks' offensive line is likely to be an adventure for another season.

Coach Pete Carroll confirmed Friday night that LT George Fant (ACL) is done for the season.

Carroll called it a "significant" ACL injury, and suggested there may have been more ligament damage. The injury indeed looked brutal on the field. The Seahawks turned to sometimes guard Rees Odhiambo as their first-team left tackle in Fant's absence. They could also look at LG Luke Joeckel as a left guard alternative, or give un-retired free agent Branden Albert a phone call.

Seahawks seventh-round RB Chris Carson turned six carries into 27 yards and one catch into 17 yards in Friday night's preseason game.

While Eddie Lacy plodded his way to 23 yards on seven touches, Carson exploded for 44 yards on his seven opportunities and looked clearly to be the more determined downhill back. Carson essentially earned an RBBC with Lacy, playing 9-of-22 snaps with the Russell Wilson first-team offense compared to Lacy's 13 first-team plays. Carson has played himself onto the radar in re-draft leagues.

Kasen Williams caught 2-of-4 targets for 28 yards and one touchdown in the Seahawks' second preseason game.

Building on his 4-119 line from last week, Williams ran exclusively with the Russell Wilson group, playing 11 of the first 15 snaps while making a 27-yard one-handed catch in Xavier Rhodes' coverage before then nabbing a one-yard touchdown on a fade. Williams could (should) have had another touchdown but dropped a 45-yarder that hit him in the belly. Williams is passing Jermaine Kearse for No. 4 receiver duties behind Doug Baldwin, Paul Richardson, and Tyler Lockett, and both Richardson and Lockett have big durability concerns.

Eddie Lacy rushed six times for 20 yards and caught his lone target for three yards in the Seahawks' second preseason game.

He has 30 yards on 10 preseason carries with the lone reception. Lacy started tonight only because Thomas Rawls is battling a mild ankle sprain, and even so merely shared first-team duties with rookie Chris Carson, who played 9-of-22 first-team snaps to Lacy's 13. Lacy has looked neither powerful nor explosive this preseason. We would advise avoiding him before the late rounds of drafts.
Aug 18 - 11:52 PM

Russell Wilson completed 13-of-18 passes for 206 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks' second preseason game.

And he did almost all of it against the Vikings' first-team defense. The unfortunate news was Wilson losing LT George Fant to a potentially serious leg injury. Wilson was as sharp as ever, hooking up with Kasen Williams and Doug Baldwin for big gains and showing complete command of the offense as both a rusher and passer. Wilson has fantasy overall QB1 upside in his sixth NFL season.
Aug 18 - 11:49 PM

Seahawks rookie WR Amara Darboh left Friday's preseason game to be evaluated for a concussion.

Darboh took a huge hit to the helmet while playing with the back end of the first-team offense. We don't expect to see him for the remainder of the night.
Aug 18 - 11:26 PM

Seahawks LT George Fant exited Friday night's second preseason game with a knee injury.

Fant got rolled up from the side and behind via friendly fire from teammate C Justin Britt. Fant immediately grabbed his leg and had to be carted off the field in an air cast. He's certainly done for the season. Fant was drawing big praise for his development this offseason. It's a big loss to an already questionable line. 2016 third-rounder Rees Odhiambo replaced Fant.
Aug 18 - 10:57 PM

Seahawks signed C Justin Britt to a three-year, $27 million extension through 2020.

He's the first Seahawks offensive lineman drafted during the Pete Carroll/John Schneider era to get a second contract in Seattle. Britt spent the first two years of his career bouncing between guard and tackle before settling in at center last season. He was a bright spot along an otherwise dismal line. 2017 will be Britt's age-26 campaign.
Aug 17 - 3:02 PM

Thomas Rawls will miss Friday's preseason game with a "minor" ankle issue.

Eddie Lacy will start in his place. Rawls has been running ahead of Lacy with the first-team offense for over a week, but this gives Lacy a big opportunity to move back out in front. Rawls has earned universally positive reviews this summer, but any ankle issue is a concern after the catastrophic injury that ended Rawls' 2015.
Aug 17 - 2:28 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Seahawks are "closing in" on a three-year extension with walk-year C Justin Britt.

Per Rapoport, the deal will be worth more than $9 million per season. The No. 64 overall pick of the 2014 draft, Britt is headed into the final year of his rookie deal. Britt has bounced around the offensive line, playing tackle and guard, but found a home at center last season. It was his first year manning the pivot.
Aug 17 - 1:14 PM

Paul Richardson (shoulder) returned to practice Wednesday.

Richardson suffered a very minor AC joint sprain in his shoulder in the preseason opener. There was some initial concern, but Richardson avoided serious injury. Richardson has been working as the No. 2 receiver while Tyler Lockett works his way back from last year's injury. Richardson should hold a role in three-wide sets, with Jermaine Kearse taking a back seat on offense.
