This week middle linebacker Bobby Wagner returned to practice for the Seattle Seahawks and we all breathed a collective sigh of relief.

Pressure on Terrelle Pryor to perform Thursday against Oakland Raiders

Terelle Pryor was always facing an uphill battle to make a roster spot with the Seattle Seahawks. When he was traded from the Oakland Raiders for a seventh rounder back in April, I considered the move to be nothing but gravy: Seattle gave up very little for him and expectations had to be pretty low.
