Running back Rashaad Penny, the Seahawks' first-round pick, left Monday's practice early for an unknown reason. Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer was asked if Penny is OK. "I think so," he said. "Yeah, I think so. I haven't heard yet but I think so."

Nick Vannett is the Seahawks' longest-tenured tight end now that Jimmy Graham and Luke Willson are gone. That means he's in charge of holding onto the money from kangaroo-court fines that get imposed among Seattle's tight ends. It's $20 a pop and half of the pot goes to charity while the other half helps fund their end-of-season trip. There's a "Homeland" fine for mentioning your hometown or wearing your alma mater's gear. There's a "No-fine" fine that ensures every tight end contributes to the pot at least once a day. An "Uncle Rico" fine is for when someone tells "a high school story that we all just really don't care about," Vannett said. Not even tight ends coach Pat McPherson is above the law. "We'll watch film and something will click in his head and he's like, 'Oh man, I remember this time at UCLA' or whatever school he went to, like 'I did this in practice.' It's like, 'Pat, appreciate the story but that's an Uncle Rico.'"

Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said rookie quarterback Alex McGough was "overthinking" in his NFL debut. Neither McGough nor Austin Davis -- who are competing to back up Russell Wilson -- distinguished himself in the team's preseason opener, with Davis (4 of 5, 51 yards) throwing an interception in the end zone on his first of two possessions and Seattle's offense generating only three points on six second-half drives led by McGough (10 of 13, 48 yards). It's probably not a coincidence that the NFL Network reported a day later that Seattle was bringing in veteran QB Josh Johnson for a workout. Said Schotteheimer: "I thought Austin's first drive was excellent. He moved us right down the field, couple big third-down conversions, the throw to David Moore. The interception was just a bad decision. He can't do that. He knows that. He was frustrated by that. But it was a really good drive. Alex, it was his first game and so he was overthinking some stuff, which they all tend to do. But he made some really good throws. You see the athleticism. So certainly we expect to see those guys play a little bit better, but it's so much fun to watch those guys go out, play, and then to see how receptive they both are."

Veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who's fighting for a roster spot with the Seahawks, was again working with the No. 1 offense today. This comes a day after what coach Pete Carroll called Marshall's most active practice as he works his way back from ankle and toe surgeries as well as a hamstring injury that sidelined him during minicamp. Offensive coordinator Brian Schotteheimer was asked if he's encouraged by how much Marshall has been practicing of late. "Yes, it's been really good," Schottenheimer said. "He had a big play today. It's just there's some timing stuff still that he and [Russell Wilson] are working for. That's a big part of him being out there, but I love seeing him out there. He's over with us during the quarterback individual stuff, which is great. They're talking all the time. Yes, very encouraged."

The Seahawks vs. Raiders game on Oct. 14 in London has been moved to Wembley Stadium due to delays with the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium, it was announced Monday.

NFL games at Wembley; new stadium not ready

The new stadium being built for English Premier League club Tottenham isn't ready to host the NFL this year, so the games will be played at Wembley Stadium instead.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Rookie defensive lineman Rasheem Green is the youngest player on the Seahawks' roster, having turned 21 in May, but coach Pete Carroll has a few times mentioned how well he understands the game. Green, a third-round pick who left USC after three seasons, had 1.5 sacks in Seattle's preseason opener and, as Carroll noted, played both end spots while also rushing from the inside. "He was really active in terms of pass-rush," Carroll said. "He showed some really good stuff in his hand movement, his hips, getting skinny on the pass-rush. He did some really good things that you hope an experienced player would do. So he took advantage of a couple opportunities in the pass-rush and got sacks on them. That's a really big plus for us." Green should factor heavily into Seattle's defensive-line rotation this season, especially if Dion Jordan remains sidelined with a leg injury.

The play of the day from Seahawks camp was Tyler Lockett hauling in a deep ball for a touchdown on a play-action throw from Russell Wilson that must have traveled about 50 yards in the air. Lockett getting behind the defense the way he did is another sign that he's regained the speed that wasn't quite there last season while he was coming off a badly broken leg from Christmas Eve 2016. Two more notes and observations: Sebastian Janikowski nailed all of his field-goal attempts with rookie punter Michael Dickson holding. That's another aspect of the competition between Dickson and Jon Ryan, who has always handled holding duties. Pete Carroll said again today that nothing is settled there, but logic says Dickson will prevail; rookie defensive lineman Rasheem Green and offensive lineman Willie Beavers briefly took swings at each other after one play during a team period near the end of practice. Center Justin Britt was among several players who rushed in to break things up. That the first legitimate fight of camp came two and a half weeks in is a change from recent years.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who's coming off toe and ankle surgeries as well as a hamstring injury, had his most active day of practice today. That included working with the No. 1 offense in team periods. Marshall's health is coming along as is his rapport with Russell Wilson. "It's developing," Carroll said. "They're working hard at it."

Seahawks rookie linebacker Shaquem Griffin said he made some mistakes in his NFL debut Thursday night that he has to clean up, but that "once I got that first tackle, I was like, you know what? I was supposed to be here."

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said rookie tackle Jamarco Jones suffered a severe high ankle sprain in Thursday night's preseason opener. Carroll said Jones, a fifth-round pick, didn't break anything, but he described it as a "really bad" and "serious" sprain. Tackle Isaiah Battle (knee), also injured Thursday, should be OK in a couple days, according to Carroll. More injury updates: tight end Ed Dickson (quad) is still a ways away from being activated; wide receiver David Moore passed the concussion protocol and practiced today after taking a hard hit to the helmet Thursday; running back C.J. Prosise (hip) has resumed running and is day-to-day; defensive tackle Naz Jones (hip) should be back in a couple days.

Free-agent cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie tells ESPN's Josina Anderson that he worked out for the Seahawks on Friday. Seattle's interested is presumably tied to the team's injury situation at that position with Byron Maxwell, Neiko Thorpe and Trovon Reed all sidelined of late.

Carroll: Seahawks 'fired up' for Griffin's big debut

Seahawks rookie Shaquem Griffin, who in April became the first player with one hand to be drafted in the league's modern era, totaled a game-high nine tackles in Thursday night's preseason opener against the Colts.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Seahawks rookie linebacker Shaquem Griffin led all players with nine tackles (one for loss) in his first preseason game, including four in a row on one Colts possession in the first half. "I didn't know how many tackles I had; I just kept running," he said as Bobby Wagner chimed in from the next locker. Said Pete Carroll: "Shaquem was all over the field making hits."

Andrew Luck makes return as Colts beat Seahawks 19-17

Andrew Luck returned to game action for the first time since the final week of the 2016 season, leading Indianapolis on a pair of field-goal drives in just over a quarter in the Colts' 19-17 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night.

What a boost for the Seahawks it would be if rookies Rasheem Green (third round) and Jake Martin (sixth) can provide some pass-rush like they did in the team's preseason opener. Green (1.5 sacks) is expected to play quite a bit in a rotational role, including as an interior rusher in passing situations. Martin (half sack) has had a nice start to camp and is looking like more and more of a good bet to make the team. With Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril gone, and Dion Jordan out indefinitely with a leg injury, the biggest question mark on Seattle's defense is who aside from Frank Clark can generate pressure. The Seahawks should feel encouraged by what they saw from Green and Martin as well as veteran Barkevious Mingo, who had a sack as well.

The Seahawks have to like what they saw from Russell Wilson in the only series for their entire No. 1 offense. Wilson went 4 of 5 for 43 yards and capped a 12-play, 80-yard drive with a touchdown to tight end Nick Vannett. Chris Carson and first-round pick Rashaad Penny each had nice runs to set up the score. It's the type of opening drive the Seahawks haven't put together in an actual game in quite a while. Their offense was inexplicably bad early in games last season, ranking last in first-quarter yards and tied for 25th in first-quarter scoring.

Another Seahawk to watch tonight is second-year free safety Tedric Thompson, who's in line to start in Earl Thomas' absence. Pete Carroll called him the standout of camp so far and said he's made more plays than anyone. It's common for teams to talk up the guy who's replacing a holdout, but the evidence has been there with Thompson to back up the rave reviews.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

A player to watch in the Seahawks' preseason opener is rookie fifth-round pick Tre Flowers. The team has been excited about his progress in switching from college safety to cornerback. He's a personal favorite of Pete Carroll and could end up playing on defense sooner than many expect. He should play quite a bit tonight with Byron Maxwell and Neiko Thorpe not in uniform. It'll provide the Seahawks a good gauge of how comfortable he is with their style of play at cornerback in a game situation.
