The Seahawks are bringing in RB Alex Collins to begin COVID-19 testing on Friday, a source tells ESPN. Once he finishes, he'll be an option to join their practice squad as early as next week. Seattle needs backfield depth with Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde and Travis Homer all banged up. Collins spent his rookie season with the Seahawks in 2016 and the next two in Baltimore, last playing in 2018. He worked out for the Seahawks late last season and recently for Detroit.

Russell Wilson's Why Not You Foundation has announced plans for a tuition-free public charter high school just south of Seattle, set to open next fall. Wilson said he and wife Ciara have wanted to do that since they met. "Having three little ones, we fundamentally believe education is a key component of growth and life and change and opportunity," he said. "What we're really excited about ... is continuing to give young kids an opportunity and opening up doors that they may have never seen ..."

Brian Schottenheimer didn't regret his third-and-2 play call on the Seahawks' final drive of regulation vs. Arizona. Carlos Hyde was stopped for no gain on a right-side run. "We called a play that had multiple choices," he said. "We had just run the same exactly play for 7 yards and there was a mental error on the play. It doesn't matter how it plays out. We had plenty of chances... to win the football game." RG Damien Lewis appeared to step in the wrong direction after Russell Wilson audibled.

Russell Wilson's 31-8 record following an in-season loss is the best of any QB since the 1970 merger. OC Brian Schottenheimer said he saw the same Wilson as usual after his three interceptions in the Seahawks' loss to Arizona. "He doesn't blink," Schottenheimer said. "Does he get pissed? Sure he gets pissed, but he doesn't blink. He's amazing the way he moves his mind into that neutral mind. I've seen it in great moments and I've seen it in tough moments. Sunday night was a tough moment."

Rookie DeeJay Dallas is the only tailback on the Seahawks' roster who's practiced this week. They don't have any on their practice squad, which means Dallas may have a big role Sunday depending on what happens with Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde and Travis Homer. Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer described Dallas this way: "Instinctive. One-cut, decisive runner. Really good feet. Really good change of direction. He's a guy that we know can play well and play at a winning level for us.”

The Seahawks' backfield and secondary are two areas of big concern with Sunday's game against the 49ers approaching. Seattle's top three tailbacks -- Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde and Travis Homer -- missed practice for the second straight day Thursday. Also yet to practice this week are defensive backs Jamal Adams, Shaquill Griffin and Ugo Amadi. The Seahawks have DBs on their practice squad (Jayson Stanley, D.J. Reed) they can elevate for Sunday if needed, but that's not the case at tailback.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Jamal Adams appeared to have a chance to return Sunday when Pete Carroll said Wednesday that he'd practice later in the day. But the All-Pro strong safety was listed as a non-participant Wednesday and again Thursday. The mix-up could be due to the new, unspecific illness Adams is listed as having along with the groin injury that's kept him out of the Seahawks' last three games. At this rate, he seems more likely to miss a fourth straight game than to be back on the field against the 49ers.

Seahawks running back DeeJay Dallas called the Arizona game a personal "wakeup call." The rookie fourth-round pick got pressed into action in OT and had his pass-protection tested on several blitzes. He missed an assignment on Seattle's final drive that led to Russell Wilson getting hit hard and throwing incomplete. Dallas said that kind of mistake "can't happen." He may factor heavily Sunday against the 49ers with Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde and Travis Homer all iffy due to injuries.

According to the NFL's transaction wire, the Seahawks have a roster exemption for DE Carlos Dunlap, meaning he won't count against the 53 for now. He has to clear COVID-19 protocol before he can practice. They have two open spots as they also waived DT Anthony Rush this week. The wire also notes that the seventh-rounder the Seahawks are sending to Cincinnati along with OL B.J. Finney for Dunlap is the one they acquired from Detroit in the Quandre Diggs trade.

Three of the Seahawks' four tailbacks didn't practice Wednesday as Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde and Travis Homer nurse injuries from the Arizona game. Pete Carroll hasn't ruled any of them out for Sunday vs. San Francisco. Carson won't do much if anything this week. They'll see how he is this weekend. Carroll said Hyde's injury isn't a major one and that Homer is moving "way better" than he was Tuesday. Their other tailback, DeeJay Dallas, is on the injury report but listed as a full participant.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Pete Carroll said All-Pro SS Jamal Adams would return to practice as a limited participant Wednesday, but it turns out he did not. The Seahawks' practice report lists Adams as not participating due to his groin and an unspecific illness. So his chances of returning Sunday against the 49ers are far from certain. Said Carroll: "We're going one day at a time and we're mixing him in in the preparation with the thought that there's a chance, but we're going to just have to wait and see how he does."

Seahawks acquire DE Carlos Dunlap from Bengals (1:08)

As low as they are on cap space and 2021 draft picks, it was going to be hard for the Seahawks to fill their glaring need for a pass-rusher via trade. But GM John Schneider showed it wasn't impossible by getting Carlos Dunlap for a seventh-rounder and B.J. Finney. With Russell Wilson playing like an MVP and ample weapons around him, the Seahawks have a Super Bowl-caliber offense. But they badly need to help a defense that's getting gashed at a historic rate thanks largely to a lack of pressure.
