Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas was at practice on Friday but did not take part because of reasons of a personal nature, according to coach Pete Carroll. Carroll left open the possibility that the issue – that he wouldn’t detail – could keep Thomas from playing Sunday in Seattle’s home opener against the Dallas Cowboys.

Seahawks’ Bobby Wagner says he’s learned from previous injuries

UPDATED: 6:23 p.m.

Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner is expected back in the lineup when Seattle hosts Dallas looking to avoid falling to 0-3 for the first time under Pete Carroll. The defense wasn’t the problem this week in a loss against the Bears. But having Wagner back Sunday will certainly be a boost in what’s essentially become a must-win game for the Seahawks just three weeks into the regular season.

Seahawks fall to 0-2 with loss to Chicago Bears

UPDATED: 10:55 p.m.

In 2012 at Soldier Field, Wilson started Seahawks on their rise in NFL

A trip to Solider Field Monday night also allowed the Seahawks to reminisce this week about what was one of the franchise’s most pivotal moments during a little more innocent time – a 23-17 overtime win over the Bears in 2012 that is generally regarded as Russell Wilson’s true coming-out party.

UPDATED: Sat., Sept. 15, 2018, 4:54 p.m.

Seahawks need more from pass rush than was shown in opener

UPDATED: Thu., Sept. 13, 2018, 8:14 p.m.

The biggest concern about the Seattle Seahawks’ overhauled defense entering the season was probably the pass rush. The worries proved to be true in the season opener when the Seahawks generated just one sack and very little pressure against a quarterback who mostly sat in the pocket. The challenge in Week 2 will be different with the Seahawks facing the mobility of second-year Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, but the need to wreak at least some havoc in the backfield remains the same.

Seahawks likely to be without Doug Baldwin at Chicago

UPDATED: Tue., Sept. 11, 2018, 6:01 p.m.

The Seattle Seahawks are likely to be without wide receiver Doug Baldwin for at least Monday’s game at Chicago and possibly longer because of an MCL injury to his right knee. Coach Pete Carroll was vague about the specifics of Baldwin’s injury but indicated it would be difficult for Baldwin to make it back to face the Bears and that it could be a couple of weeks. Baldwin was injured in the first quarter of Seattle’s season-opening loss to Denver.
