Pete Carroll came away from Seattle's preseason opener impressed with how his younger players who had impressed were just as strong in the Seahawks first game situation.

The Seahawks returned to practice on Sunday for the first time since their preseason win over San Diego. The practice saw the return of backup running back Robert Turbin, who had yet to participate in training camp due to a foot injury.

There might have been a little more urgency for Turbin to get back on the field after rookie Christine Michael rushed for 89 yards on 16 carries against the Chargers.

While Turbin returned, it will still be a couple more weeks for tight end Zach Miller (foot) and defensive end Cliff Avril (hamstring), Carroll said. Both are improving but neither might be ready for the Seahawks' third preseason game at Green Bay.
