Seahawks DB Marquis Blair ‘right back on track’...


The Seattle Seahawks will see the return this season of one of the hardest-hitting players on the roster, defensive back Marquis Blair.

Blair’s season was cut short after just two games last year following a torn ACL sustained during the Week-2, Sunday night matchup against the Patriots.

Blair didn’t participate during the Seahawks’ minicamp last week, although he does continue to be on the mend following successful knee surgery.

“Marquise, we’re just protecting him going through it,” coach Pete Carroll said Thursday. “He has worked a lot, so he got a lot of stuff done here. He’s right back on track. Really, he’s ahead of schedule in terms of learning his football, he is much further along than he was a year ago at this time. And we’re moving him around, he’s got a number of different things that he’s doing. We want to give him a chance to show it – we love the playmaking that he has in him.

“So we just took care of him is all, didn’t want to overload him this early.”
