Due mainly to Reiff's back injury suffered at the start of camp, the Vikings offensive line has yet to take an entire practice, let alone a preseason game, together.

The Seattle Seahawks suffered a tremendous blow when starting left tackle George Fant was carted off the field during Friday's preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings. However, after Fant's injury, speculation is already beginning that Joeckel could slide to the left tackle position.

The former Vikings player kicker Blair Walsh, who is now a member of the Seahawks, executed all eight of his attempts including two field goals and six extra points in their Week 1 preseason opening offensive explosion game.

Edmond Robinson and Emmanuel Lamur had been listed as even on the depth chart at first team.

Wilson hit on six of his first seven passes, at which point he had a ideal passer rating, including 5 of 6 for 60 yards on the first series, an 11-play 77-yard march against Minnesota's No. 1 defense. Laquon Treadwell, Latavius Murray, Trae Waynes, Andrew Sendejo, Kentrell Brothers, Riley Reiff and Alex Boone are all expected to be held out of the team's second preseason game.

Following the most recent season the Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks squared off in one of the harder engaged defensive fights in the 2016 National Football League season.

With the Seahawks thin at receiver with Tyler Lockett and Paul Richardson still out, Williams got the start.

But the Seahawks could also look to veteran free agent Luke Joeckel to play left tackle as well.

Pete Carroll said earlier this summer that Fant had the best offseason of any Seahawks player.

The Seahawks will host Kansas City on Friday at 5 p.m.in the third exhibition game, a contest in which the starters typically play into the third quarter.
