RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Startling left tackle Russell Okung and strong safety Kam Chancellor were both spectators as the Seattle Seahawks began training camp.

Okung and Chancellor are both recovering from surgeries in the offseason, but coach Pete Carroll said Friday that both are close to returning to practice. Chancellor had hip surgery, while Okung had a procedure on his foot. Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith was also watched Friday’s first practice after ankle surgery in the spring.

The one possible injury that could linger into the regular season is linebacker/defensive end Bruce Irvin, who was placed on the physically unable to perform list. Irvin had hip surgery in the spring and Carroll said it may take all of training camp before Seattle knows if Irvin will be ready for the season opener Sept. 4 vs. Green Bay.
