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.

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.

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.

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.

Seahawks seventh-round RB Chris Carson "got turns" with the first-team offense at Tuesday's practice.

Thomas Rawls (undisclosed) sat out practice, so all three of Eddie Lacy, C.J. Prosise, and Carson got reps with the ones. Beat writer Sheil Kapadia notes Carson is "clearly ahead" of Alex Collins for the fourth running back job. Carson has been talked up multiple times this summer and had a strong showing in the preseason opener, rushing for a pair of touchdowns. Carson is a name to monitor in Dynasty leagues behind a trio of injury-prone running backs.

Seahawks signed CB Tramaine Brock, formerly of the 49ers, to a one-year contract.

Seattle was the only visit Brock made after he was cleared of domestic violence charges last week. It's a great get at this stage of the year at a position of need for the Seahawks. Brock was Pro Football Focus' No. 16 cornerback out of 119 qualifiers last season and was only cut by the Niners because of his arrest. He'll push impressive rookie Shaq Griffin to be Seattle's No. 2 corner.

Speaking Tuesday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said there was "no question" Paul Richardson (shoulder) will be ready for Week 1.

Richardson sprained his AC joint in Sunday's preseason opener, but has evidently received good news in the 48 hours since. It's possible Richardson is held out of the rest of the exhibition slate, but the Seahawks are confident he will be in good working order for the opener. Richardson has been spending time as the 'Hawks' No. 2 receiver in camp, but this puts that in jeopardy.

Seahawks WLB K.J. Wright is having his knee "looked at," but doesn't require surgery.

Coach Pete Carroll seemed confident Wright's ailment isn't one that will require going under the knife, but it's always possible the doctor comes back with a different opinion. Now 28, Wright is due $5.8 million this season. He hasn't missed a game since 2013.
Aug 15 - 4:18 PM

Doug Baldwin (foot) has resumed practicing.

Baldwin tweaked his foot in last Thursday's practice, and missed the Seahawks' preseason opener. He's back after five days. It's possible the Seahawks exercise caution and hold their No. 1 wideout out of Friday's exhibition against the Vikings.
Aug 15 - 2:17 PM

Free agent CB Tramaine Brock will visit the Seahawks on Tuesday.

It'll be Brock's first official visit since he was cleared of domestic violence charges last week. The 29-year-old (next week) was cut by the division-rival 49ers in April, but is being sought after now that he's out of legal trouble. The Seahawks have a gaping hole opposite Richard Sherman.
Aug 14 - 6:52 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Sunday night Paul Richardson will be "out a bit" after suffering an AC joint sprain in his shoulder.

Richardson went down at the end of a diving, 25-yard catch. Initial fears were regarding his collarbone, so it's good news Richardson has a mere week-to-week injury. We wouldn't expect to see him again before Week 1, however.

Alex Collins carried six times for just nine times in Sunday's preseason opener against the Chargers, but he was able to find the end zone.

Collins is looking to hold off rookie Chris Carson, Mike Davis and others for the No. 4 job behind the experienced triumvirate of Thomas Rawls, Eddie Lacy and C.J. Prosise, but he'll have to do more than this. Carson found the end zone twice while Davis led the team with 33 rushing yards and an average of 4.1 yards per run.
Aug 13 - 11:19 PM

Mike Davis rushed eight times for a team-high 33 yards in Sunday's preseason opener against the Chargers and he also recorded a seven-yard grab.

The former standout from the University of South Carolina is looking to realize his potential in Seattle after being jettisoned by the 49ers, but he has a big hill to climb. The Seahawks are stacked with Thomas Rawls, Eddie Lacy and C.J. Prosise at the top of the depth chart, and rookie Chris Carson has also been impressive. It's a long shot for Davis to make the club, although he certainly did nothing to hurt his chances in this one.
Aug 13 - 11:13 PM

Kasen Williams posted four receptions for 119 yards in Sunday's preseason game against the Chargers.

Williams hauled in all four of his targets and nearly scored in the second half, but he was ruled out at the 1-yard line. He is well down the depth chart, but that could change if he continues to produce like this. Williams obviously won't unseat Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, Tyler Lockett or Paul Richardson anytime soon, but he is in the mix for a roster spot. His biggest challengers are rookie Amara Darboh, Kenny Lawler, Rodney Smith and Tanner McEvoy.
Aug 13 - 11:07 PM

Chris Carson carried seven times for 19 yards and a pair of rushing touchdowns in Sunday's preseason game against the Chargers.

The hype for the seventh-round pick out of Oklahoma State has been growing. He obviously has plenty of company in the Seattle backfield with Thomas Rawls, Eddie Lacy and C.J. Prosise, among others. However, he is a player worth keeping an eye on. At this point, he is likely battling Mike Davis and Alex Collins for a roster spot.
