Pete Carroll said RB Rashaad Penny is "really trim and looking good" and said he's ahead of schedule for predictions that had him returning around mid-season. "I think he's gonna push sooner than that," Carroll said. But per PUP rules, Penny can't practice until Week 7 at the earliest. He tore his ACL and suffered other damage to his knee in December.

Pete Carroll said rookie DE Darrell Taylor (leg) has resumed running but is still "weeks" from making his debut. The Seahawks thought their second-round pick would be ready by now after checking him out in a pre-draft visit. Per NFI rules, he can't practice until Week 7. Carroll: “It's been a tough return and I'm not sure when that time's gonna come. He's got weeks before that. But he's working really hard at it, he cares so much, he wants to get it done so we'll just have to stick with him."

Pete Carroll called it "a major accomplishment" for the Seahawks to remain at zero positive COVID-19 tests after their first road trip of the season. He described going on the road as Stage 2 of the process of making it through a pandemic season, with training camp being Stage 1. “There's a ton of stuff that you've got to go through to orchestrate that thing,” Carroll said of traveling. He said he's surprised by the low number of COVID cases around the NFL, considering the issues MLB has had.

The Seahawks practiced outside Friday for the first time this week. The Air Quality Index in Seattle and Renton was around 160. That's better than the past two days but still on the lower end of the "unhealthy" range. Sunday's forecast says an AQI of 50, which is considered "good" air quality. So Sunday night's game against the Patriots at CenturyLink Field doesn't appear to be in any jeopardy.

The Seahawks list Rasheem Green and Cedric Ogbuehi as doubtful for Sunday vs. New England. Neither practiced all week. Pete Carroll said Green's neck injury is a stinger. He left the opener, came back and underwent tests this week. Phillip Dorsett is questionable after being limited the first two days this week then not practicing Friday. He didn't play in the opener, so his Seattle debut would come against his old team if it happens Sunday. David Moore was Seattle's No. 3 receiver in Week 1.

OC Brian Schottenheimer was pleased with how the Seahawks' offensive line held up in pass-protection Sunday, saying the three first-half sacks they allowed are misleading. He blamed his play-call for the first one and said another was on Russell Wilson. He wasn't sure how they'd fare in that regard with no preseason, but said "I thought overall they did a terrific job. I really do." The Seahawks were tied for 19th in ESPN's Pass Block Win Rate (50%) for Week 1. They were 28th (53.5%) last year.

After the Seahawks dropped back to pass on 11 of 14 first-quarter plays Sunday -- a big deviation from their establish-the-run MO -- OC Brian Schottenheimer reiterated that the way they use Russell Wilson early in games will depend on matchups. "It was something that as we were game-planning, we saw some things that we liked where we felt good about the matchups and things like that," he said. "Honestly, I say this all the time and it's the reality of it, each week is going to be different."

Russell Wilson said that going into Year 9, he's trying to "break away" from other top QBs: "I want to be the best in the world to ever do this. I've got a lot of great players ahead of me. I think about guys like Peyton Manning, I think about guys like Tom Brady and Drew Brees, all guys I've gotten to be pretty close to … and then you've got guys like Joe Montana … I want to be remembered and I want to be able to leave a legacy that people can't ever forget, and hopefully I can do that."

Over Russell Wilson's first eight seasons, the Seahawks went for it on fourth down fewer times than all but two teams. DK Metcalf thinks his touchdown on fourth-and-5 Sunday was indicative of their plan to be more aggressive, saying they likely would've punted in that situation last year. Said OC Brian Schottenheimer: “I would say 100% we've talked more about it. We started talking about in the offseason in terms of, hey, we've got a great player in Russ, we've got great weapons around him."

Jamal Adams is a new name on the Seahawks' injury report Thursday, but he's listed as a full participant. Rasheem Green and Cedric Ogbuehi didn't practice for the second straight day, so they still look iffy for Sunday night's game against New England. Phillip Dorsett was limited again. He still appears to have a good chance to make his Seahawks debut against his former team after missing the opener.

With smoke from wildfires around the state still lingering in Western Washington and compromising air quality, the Seahawks will practice inside for the second straight day Thursday. The Air Quality Index in Seattle and Renton is 175. That's better than Wednesday (195) but still in the middle of the range (151-200) considered "unhealthy." Sunday's forecast calls for an AQI of 50, which is considered "good" air quality.

Pete Carroll felt Bobby Wagner has never been better in pass coverage than he was Sunday, saying the All-Pro middle linebacker was "his most active and most obviously on point with the breaks he was making. He impacted our play quite a bit." Wagner said he focused on that part of his game this offseason and now feels more confident to take chances. He also may be benefiting from the addition of All-Pro safety Jamal Adams. "People have to account for Jamal," he said. "... It takes eyes off me."

No practice Wednesday for Seahawks DE Rasheem Green (neck), OT Cedric Ogbuehi (pectoral) and LT Duane Brown (resting vet). WR Phillip Dorsett (foot) was limited. The team initially called it a shoulder injury that Green suffered in the opener. He underwent tests Wednesday. His status for Sunday against the Patriots is up in the air, per Pete Carroll. Expect to see lots of rest days for the 35-year-old Brown. Dorsett, who missed Week 1, will try to make Seahawks debut against his old team.
