RENTON – A few personnel notes from Thursday’s Seahawks practice, the team’s 11th of training camp:

• Right tackle J’Marcus Webb didn’t practice, presumably due to the apparent leg injury he sustained in Wednesday’s practice. In his absence, Garry Gilliam moved to right tackle and Bradley Sowell played left tackle. Offensive-line coach Tom Cable didn’t give any update on Webb after practice. Webb is still learning Seattle’s scheme as a free-agent addition, and based on some comments last week from Cable, he’s a bit behind in where the team would like him to be due to all the time he missed during offseason workouts due to a calf strain. That means any more time he misses with whatever injury he’s dealing with now will cost him.

• Defensive tackle Sealver Siliga made his training-camp debut, which means he’s been activated off the Non-Football Injury list. He was dealing with a calf injury. The Seahawks signed him to a one-year, low-cost deal in the offseason to compete for playing time as a nose tackle. Undrafted rookie Brandin Bryant has quietly had a nice camp, so Siliga will have some work to do as he gets back to practice.

• Tight end Jimmy Graham had another light day of work, taking part in the early portion of practice then sitting out the team drills. The Seahawks are being cautious with Graham as he comes back from offseason surgery to repair a torn pateller tendon, so it could be like that for a few more days.

• Rookie defensive tackles Jarran Reed and Quinton Jefferson both practiced. Reed left Wednesday’s practice on a cart with what looked like an ankle injury. He tweeted afterward that he’s fine, and it appears that’s the case. Jefferson missed time this week with a sore knee. Another defensive tackle, Jordan Hill, remained out due to a groin injury.

• Rookie running back Alex Collins returned to practice after missing two days with a sore ankle. The Seahawks are still thin at running back with two other rookies – C.J. Prosise and Zac Brooks – sidelined with hamstring injuries and Thomas Rawls easing back to work following offseason ankle surgery. Because of that, cornerback George Farmer has been working as a running back, and he hasn’t looked bad there.

• Several of Seattle’s backup wide receivers remained sidelined. That group includes Kasen Williams, Kevin Smith, Deshon Foxx and Antwan Goodley.
