RENTON, Wash. (AP) — It’s early but there is some clear frustration starting to show with the Seattle Seahawks.

Either way, he was cleared to return and played through it all.
Tagovailoa briefly left Sunday's 21-19 victory over the Buffalo Bills, returning despite appearing to be disoriented by what the team originally said was a head injury.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Thomas Morstead stepped into the middle of Miami's end zone, swung his powerful right leg and booted a punt.
Right into the backside of blocker Trent Sherfield.
