News, notes and quotes: Day two of training camp

Day two in the sun.

Percy Harvin did not practice today. It completely appeared as just a day of rest. Harvin was on the field all day, jogged from place to place and did some other running. It's no surprise to see the Seahawks managing Harvin's workload on July 26. If you recall, Pete Carroll said in minicamp that they were not going to work Harvin three consecutive days then. That timeframe does not necessarily apply to training camp. Certainly looked like just a day off.

Rookie wide receiver Kevin Norwood and right tackle Michael Bowie were held out today. Bowie hurt his shoulder yesterday. It's unclear why Norwood was out. Jesse Williams also approached the training staff early in practice, then did not participate afterward. The issue appeared to be with his upper body.

All of the guys who had surgery -- Kam Chancellor, Malcolm Smith, Bruce Irvin and Russell Okung -- remained in attendance, but not practicing. Korey Toomer also remained out.


> A better day for Russell Wilson. He completed several deep balls, was crisper on his underneath throws and just had it working. He even caught a throwback pass from Phil Bates after pitching the ball to Bates on an end-around then leaking out of the backfield. For the second consecutive day, Wilson connected with Doug Baldwin on a deep ball. Wilson said after practice that he and Earl Thomas talk about being "legendary."

> Wilson said he has been working on his "foundation" and balance in the pocket more than anything. He also said his mentality when throwing is not that he "can't miss, that I won't miss."

> Wilson said he talks to Marshawn Lynch. He hopes he's back. "He can do so many great things for us."

> Robert Turbin acknowledged he had a "minor" knee surgery during the offseason. Turbin was hesitant to talk about it and more concerned with pointing out he does not want to make any excuses.

> Turbin on his goals: "I have the same goal that I've had since I was a young kid playing ball. I just want to come in and work hard and try to contribute to the team best I can. But, you know, I just want to contribute."

> Asked what he wants to work on, Turbin listed everything asked of a back, from running, to blocking, to routes and pass catching.

> Terrelle Pryor had a so-so day. He still has trouble with touch passes. But, he hung in the pocket and strong-armed a deep ball to an open Ricardo Lockette. It hit Lockette in the hands in the end zone and was dropped. Pryor received more reps today than the first day.

> Competitive play up the right sideline today when Wilson lofted a pass to Jermaine Kearse. Kearse pulled it with Richard Sherman all over him, but was flagged for offensive pass interference.

> Bryan Walters made an excellent sideline catch on a throw from Tarvaris Jackson.

> Jeron Johnson had a pick of Wilson today when he bumped Turbin off a shallow crossing route.

> Lots of work with the first group for DE Benson Mayowa today. He had an interception of Pryor in his hands, but could not hold it. Out of frustration. Mayowa did three consecutive somersaults.

> DE Greg Scruggs worked more today than yesterday. He's still playing with a large brace.

> If it were live action, Cliff Avril would have picked up his second sack in as many days of camp coming off the left side.

> DTs D'Anthony Smith and Jordan Hill were often paired inside with the second group.

> Guard Nate Isles injured his left hand and defensive tackle Jimmy Staten injured his leg.
