Russell Wilson won’t be present at the Seahawks’ workout today.

Just don’t read anything into his absence from the voluntary workout. He’s with tight end Jimmy Graham tending to a personal matter. Tuesday’s workout is optional so there’s no need for permission to miss the workout. The team is aware of the situation.

Wilson’s absence has nothing to do with the contract negotiations that are going on for an extension and everything to do with him being a good teammate for Graham, who was acquired this offseason from New Orleans.

With Wilson out, B.J. Daniels and R.J. Archer will be the quarterbacks or today’s workout.

Defensive end Cliff Avril will also miss Tuesday’s workout as he’s tending to a family situation.
