Quarterback Matt Flynn returned to practice Tuesday after resting his tender right elbow on Monday. Flynn appeared to be a full strength and threw the ball in all sessions, with a highlight being a touchdown pass to Ricardo Lockette with a nice pass in twos vs. twos team.
As expected, Russell Wilson got all reps with the first unit and had another strong practice, showing another pass in his repertoire, rolling to his left and arcing a pass just over the fingertips of cornerback Richard Sherman into the hands of Sidney Rice on a 20-yard sideline route.
Wilson seems to be developing a nice rapport with receiver Charly Martin, hooking up several times, duplicating the connection that resulted in a touchdown against the Chiefs in Kansas City. The highlight of Martin’s practice was in one-on-ones when got enough separation on safety Earl Thomas with a double move to pull in a touchdown pass.
Had a good interview with Bruce Irvin after practice (will lead the TNT notebook). He’s a little frustrated at his lack of sacks, but feels he’s learning and was battling a little case of the nerves in the first two games. The third game, Irvin got a couple hurries and was close to a sack or two. D-Line coach Todd Wash points out that Irvin is actually doing much better as a 6-technique run-stopper than they had expected.
Never miss a local story.
Marshawn Lynch (back) did not practice again, but at least he was on the field. Monday, he was said to be rehabbing inside headquarters. There appeared to be no other new injury developments.
