The Seahawks have re-signed defensive end Branden Jackson off their practice squad and waived tight end Darrell Daniels. Jackson's promotion could be tied to Dion Jordan's uncertain status, which Pete Carroll had no word on Monday. The Seahawks acquired Daniels from the Colts for receiver Marcus Johnson on cut-down day. They now have only two tight ends on their 53-man roster in Will Dissly and Nick Vannett plus Marcus Lucas on the practice squad. Ed Dickson can't come off the non-football injury list for another three weeks.

The Seahawks are tied for the NFL lead with seven interceptions after getting two more from Earl Thomas Sunday. He has three while fellow defensive backs Bradley McDougald and Shaquill Griffin have two apiece. The Seahawks' eight takeaways (tied for second-most) put them on pace to top the league-high 39 they had during their Super Bowl season in 2013. That may not be sustainable, but it is an indication of how competent their defense has been despite so many key personnel losses and new pieces, especially in the secondary. Pete Carroll gave some credit to the pass-rush and more aggressive play-calling from defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. "Our guys are coming through in a big way, making their picks," he said. "I think we're being little bit more aggressive and it's just paying off for us in terms of getting the ball. There's nothing better. There's nothing better than taking football off your opponents."

The Seahawks announced a change in their management structure with Chuck Arnold replacing Peter McLoughlin as team president, a position he held for eight years. Arnold will report to Chris McGowan, who replaces McLoughlin as CEO of Vulcan Sports & Entertainment. VSE oversees the Paul Allen-owned Seahawks and the Portland Trailblazers of the NBA. Arnold is a native of Tacoma, Wash. and has been with the Seahawks for 25 years, most recently as their COO since 2013.

Pete Carroll said center Justin Britt should be able to play Sunday at Arizona, barring any setbacks this week, after playing only on special teams against Dallas because of a shoulder injury. Carroll said he didn't know if linebackers K.J. Wright or Mychal Kendricks will be available. Wright has missed the first three games following knee surgery and Kendricks is appealing an NFL suspension. No update on receiver Doug Baldwin, who's missed the past two games with an MCL injury.

Pete Carroll declined to elaborate on what he meant when he said "there's always consequences" in response to a question about Earl Thomas potentially continuing to miss practice. He didn't get into anything specific with regards to the Thomas situation. "I care a lot about Earl and I want to do him right," he said.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he became emotional while watching Kam Chancellor -- whose career appears to be over because of a neck injury -- raise the 12th Man flag before Sunday's win over Dallas. "I sent him a note last night," Carroll told 710 ESPN Seattle. "I've watched a lot of those ceremonies with the flag raising and all that, but that one got me, man. It hit me right in the heart. I was emotional. I'm glad nobody saw it. I was all choked up about it. Such a relationship with such a great kid and a great player -- it's not the player, it's really him. He's up there going, giving everything he's got just like he always does. It was a beautiful thing."

Here's some of what Pete Carroll said about Earl Thomas on 710 ESPN Seattle Monday, starting with his response when asked if he can allow a player to not practice just because he doesn't want to: "Well, there's always consequences now." Thomas, who picked off two more passes Sunday, said he sat out two practices last week because he wants to protect his health as he seeks a new contract. Said Carroll: "It's a unique situation with a guy with really sincere concerns about his future and all that, and I totally respect that and will continue to respect that and work it what is best and how things can come together for all of the right reasons. We love the way he plays, the person that he is and the contributor that he's been over the years. There's no slighting of that. He's awesome and he's showing it, which I think is so comical that he's being so effective and he's having a freaking blast playing. There's two sides here and we're just working it out. There's the business side and the ball side and we're trying to figure out what's best. It's ongoing and really sincerely ongoing. I want what's best for Earl. We're trying to figure that out how to work this out and of course we want what's best for the club, so we're managing it."

When the Seahawks extended Tyler Lockett last month for three years and over $30 million, it was clear that they feel he's all the way back from his 2016 broken leg and that he's an ascending player in his fourth season. Those continue to look like good bets based on the start Lockett is off to through three games. He had four catches for 77 yards and his third touchdown of the year in Seattle's win over Dallas. The Seahawks have missed Doug Baldwin over the past two and a half games, to be sure, but Lockett has done his part in picking up the slack as their No. 1 receiver. Said Pete Carroll: "It gives us great variety when Doug gets back, that we can have both those guys. He's playing great football."

The Seahawks signed right guard D.J. Fluker this offseason because they thought he could be a difference maker in their run game. He made his Seattle debut against Dallas after missing the first two games, and according to left tackle Duane Brown, was imploring the team to run behind him. "I was really fired up to get Fluke back in there," Pete Carroll said. "You guys don't know a whole lot about D.J., but you'll learn. He's such a spirit on this club. He's so tough and he's so mentally right about loving to play this game. We just missed him the first two weeks."

Seattle's Thomas expects fine for 2 no-shows

Two no-shows at practice. Two interceptions vs. Dallas. It was a bizarre week for Seahawks safety Earl Thomas, who said he expects a fine for missing practice. "I'm invested in myself. If they was invested in me, I would be out there practicing," he said.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

The Seahawks' decisive 24-13 win over Dallas showed that as bad as they looked at times during their 0-2 start, they're hardly dead yet. Not if Russell Wilson and the run game keep working like they were Sunday, not if their defense keeps taking the ball away like it has been through three games. It adds an extra layer of intrigue to the Earl Thomas situation. It would be an easier call to trade Thomas if the Seahawks had no shot of competing this season, especially with things seemingly headed for a breaking point with the All-Pro free safety saying he expects to be fined for skipping two practices last week. But Thomas is playing well -- he had two more interceptions Sunday -- and the Seahawks still have some hope with a good chance to get to 2-2 next week in Arizona.

The Seahawks have four sacks against Dallas, which is one more than they had over the first two games combined. Seattle had ranked 25th entering today in generating quarterback pressure, per ESPN charting. The pass-rush has been there for the first time this season.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

The Seahawks are up 17-3 over Dallas after their best half of football -- by far -- this season. A big reason why: Russell Wilson is getting protection (zero sacks) and he's playing more decisively than he did at times over the first two games with a pair of touchdowns. His numbers (12 of 20, 145 yards) would look better had it not been for some drops. The Seahawks are finally feeding Chris Carson (15 touches, 69 yards) and they're converting on third down, going 6 for 10 after entering the game ranked 29th in the NFL in that department.

So much for needing practice. Seahawks safety Earl Thomas, whose status heading into today's game against Dallas was in some question, gets his second interception of the season on a Dak Prescott pass that was tipped by Tre Flowers. It's been an bizarre few days for Thomas. He missed practice Wednesday and Friday even though he was apparently healthy, with Pete Carroll citing an undisclosed personal matter and then ESPN reporting that the team was considering a hefty fine against the All-Pro free safety for conduct detrimental to the team.

Russell Wilson and the Seahawks are very narrow FPI favorites over the Cowboys in Seattle today.

With Doug Baldwin out again today, Tyler Lockett is the Seahawks' de facto No. 1 receiver. Of the team's top six players in terms of receiving yards last season, Lockett is the only one who's still here and healthy. It's a largely new group of pass-catchers for Russell Wilson.

Seahawks safety Earl Thomas is active for today's game against Dallas. His status had been in some question after he missed two practices last week amid curious circumstances, with the team listing his absences as not injury-related and Pete Carroll calling it a personal matter. ESPN reported Sunday morning that the team was considering a hefty fine against Thomas for conduct detrimental to the team. Center Justin Britt is also active. He was listed as questionable with a shoulder injury.
