Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said second-year TE Will Dissly (knee) is on schedule with his recovery and should be ready for training camp: “He’s on schedule. We’ll get to camp and figure out what it means in camp. He’s running, catching balls and doing stuff in the workouts and all that, so he’s making good progress. We think there’s no reason for him not to be on schedule when we get back to camp, which would mean we’d not rush him, so we’ll take a few weeks in camp before we would think to cut him loose.”
Boyle expects Dissly to be a “big part” of the Seahawks’ offense this season.
According to Boyle, it will be “tough” for Seahawks’ second-year RB Rashaad Penny to unseat Chris Carson as the lead back after he rushed for 1,151 yards last season.
Boyle mentions that Carroll referred to Carson and Penny as a “one-two punch” but didn’t specify who is the starter: “… I don’t know who’s one and who’s two, it doesn’t matter to me.”
Boyle expects the Seahawks to keep “five or six receivers” on the active roster since that has been their usual amount in previous seasons.
