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.

The Seahawks' inactives: linebacker K.J. Wright, receiver Doug Baldwin, running back C.J. Prosise, defensive tackle Poona Ford, guard Jordan Simmons, guard Ethan Pocic, safety Delano Hill.

Carroll: Healthy Thomas no certainty vs. Boys

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll wouldn't commit to free safety Earl Thomas facing the Cowboys on Sunday after Thomas missed Friday's practice to deal with an unspecified personal issue. It was the second time Thomas missed practice this week.

Here's the Seahawks' final injury report with practice participation:

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Pete Carroll said Earl Thomas didn't practice today, citing a personal reason that Carroll did not specify. He said "we'll see" when asked if it could affect Thomas' availability for Sunday vs. Dallas.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

The Seahawks have ruled out receiver Doug Baldwin, linebacker K.J. Wright and guard Ethan Pocic for Sunday's game against Dallas. Center Justin Britt and linebacker Mychal Kendricks are listed as questionable. Right guard D.J. Fluker appears set to make his Seahawks debut. That would push J.R. Sweezy to left guard for Pocic.

Getting healthy is a priority for the Seahawks (0:37)
