The Seahawks scrimmaged for the first time this season, with the first-team offense usually matching up against the second-team defense and vice versa. There was no tackling, and there were also no touchdowns: Just three Steven Hauschka field goals.
Play of the day
On a day the defenses didn’t allow a touchdown, defensive back Terrance Parks made a diving interception in the end zone on a pass thrown by Russell Wilson. The Seahawks were practicing the two-minute drill and had the ball near the goal line with about 15 seconds left when Wilson fired a pas to Jermaine Kearse in the end zone. The ball bounced off linebacker Heath Farwell, shot up in the air and ended up in Parks’ hands after he dove for it.

How about this for a strange injury update: By the end Saturday’s scrimmage, fullback Kiero Small was the only healthy member of the Seahawks’ nine-member 2014 draft class. Second-round pick Justin Britt, an offensive tackle, started Saturday’s scrimmage but didn’t finish it because of a shoulder injury. The other seven players in the class didn’t play at all: WR Paul Richardson (2nd round/shoulder), DL Cassius Marsh (4th/hamstring), WR Kevin Norwood (4th/sore foot), LB Kevin Pierre-Louis (4th/oblique), DT Jimmy Staten (5th/knee and hamstring), OL Garrett Scott (6th/rare heart condition), DB Eric Pinkins (6th, Lisfranc injury).
The Seahawks are off Sunday before returning to practice on Monday.
