Seattle Seahawks: Team medical personnel said WR Koren Robinson will need three weeks to heal from a broken right hand. Robinson, the team's leading receiver, fell hard during practice last week. The hand survived the fall but cracked when stepped on by a teammate, reports the Tacoma News-Tribune. Robinson missed practice Monday and will miss the final two minicamp practices today and Wednesday. The Seahawks expect him to participate in the beginning of training camp July 26. Green Bay Packers: CB Chris Johnson, a seventh-round draft choice in April, has stood out as a defensive back prospect in both of the team's minicamps. But on Monday, he opened a few eyes with his ability to return kickoffs. "I don't know if he's ever done it, but we're trying guys out," John Bonamego, the Packers' special-teams coach, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Johnson (5-11, 195) might be the fastest player on the roster, with a 4.21-second time in the 40. But while that alone gives him an advantage in any non-contact drill, the fact he didn't return a single kickoff in two years at Louisville showed. After Monday's tryout, it was apparent that he might need work on ball security and some of the finer details of the return game.
