Seahawks starting center Spencer leaves practice with left ankle injury

RENTON, Wash. -- Chris Spencer is the latest Seattle Seahawks starter to be hurt during the first week of training camp.

Experience: 5th season

Height: 6-3

Weight: 312

College: Mississippi

The fifth-year center left Friday morning's practice on the back of a cart following a pileup during a blocking drill.

Seahawks coach Jim Mora says Spencer hurt his left ankle and that the severity of the injury would be determined later, but "it doesn't appear to be anything serious."

Wide receiver Deion Branch missed the morning practice with swelling in his reconstructed knee, but he returned for the night session at Washington's Husky Stadium. The former Super Bowl MVP has had two surgeries on the knee in the past 15 months.

Cornerback Marcus Trufant, a Pro Bowl selection in 2008, has yet to practice in camp because of a back injury he sustained last week. Mora has said it is minor.
