Here’s what we learned before, during and after Day 11 of Seahawks training camp Friday.

1. Frank Clark recently apologized to the team for punching Germain Ifedi

Coach Pete Carroll confirmed afterward that Clark recently stood in the locker room and apologized to the entire team for punching teammate Germain Ifedi last week.

“He just said all the right stuff,” Carroll said. “Talked from his heart about remorse and all that and he did a great job.”

Or as veteran Cliff Avril said, “he knew he crossed a line.”

Carroll has said that now that Clark is back he considers the incident as over. Clark again practiced on Friday working consistently with the first team with Avril and Michael Bennett getting days off and appears set to see a lot of action against the Chargers on Sunday.

2. Doug Baldwin is fine and it sounds like Luke Willson is, too

Carroll confirmed that the Seahawks got only a scare when receiver Doug Baldwin went down hard on Thursday when tackled from behind by K.J. Wright.

“He’s fine,” Carroll said. “He (Wright) fell on the back of his leg. He was very lucky he didn’t get a big ankle sprain, just a strain in his foot. But he seems to be fine. If he had to jump back he could jump back and play this weekend.”

Baldwin, though, will sit out, Carroll said.

Also out is tight end Luke Willson who Carroll said has “a groin thing that’s real minor. Really making sure we take care of it.” (It was the discussion of Willson’s injury that led Carroll to tell the media that “a loose groin is a happy groin.” So there you go).

3. Tyler Lockett won’t play against the Chargers

While Lockett recently returned to full duty in practice the team is going to ease him back into live action and Lockett will not play against the Chargers, Carroll said.

That means others will take on punt and kickoff return duties. The three main punt returners on Friday were J.D. McKissic, Kenny Lawler and Cyril Grayson. McKissic has also been doing a lot of kickoff returning and on Friday Alex Collins was also getting a lot of work there.

4. Jeremy Lane also won’t play, meaning Shaquill Griffin will …
