Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks are on the practice field building off the momentum of the big preseason win last Thursday. They trounced the San Diego Chargers, winning 31-10, and this week are on the field... feeling positive while getting healthier.
Though Marshawn "beast mode" Lynch is obviously the starter at running back, the hawks gained a key addition back from a foot injury this week in backup Robert Turbin, a back that Head Coach Pete Carroll is more than happy to have on his roster.
"I'm excited that he's back out there, he looked really good today," said Carroll. "Of course he had fresh legs and all that but, it's good to have him back out here and really for him too cause he's been really frustrated."
"I mean the players always want to play, and the trainers always want to keep you out until they feel like your 100% and ready to go," said Turbin. "So it's a little bit of a love/hate kind of thing. i love them for taking care of me and being patient with me, but I hate them for taking so long."
The Seahawks take on the Denver Broncos at home this Saturday at 7 p.m. for their second preseason game. Being only the second game of four, don't expect to see the starters for more than a quarter, if even that.
