Locke getting plenty of reps as holder


Asked about what Thielen has shown, offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said he’s seen some good things so far.

“We have seen some flashes from Adam,” Musgrave said. “He makes some spectacular catches; he made one yesterday where he took it off of the top shelf, really elevated and made a great catch, and he has done that consistently. “


The biggest cheers of the afternoon practice came when Erin Henderson, trying to earn the starting middle linebacker spot, intercepted a Christian Ponder pass and returned it for a touchdown early in a team drill. ... Rookie receiver Codarrelle Patterson continues to catch everything thrown at him, including a high slant that he snatched before running past the safety. He also showed some nifty moves on a reverse. ... The best receiver has been Joe Webb. The converted quarterback has made catches on deep passes and throws across the middle, and when he’s found running room, he’s been tough to corral. ... New receiver Greg Jennings put a fake on cornerback Chris Cook that caused Cook to fall over.
