Seahawks rookie running back Christine Michael looked good in Thursday night’s preseason opener against the Chargers.

Michael got his share of opportunities in Seattle’s 31-10 win over the San Diego Chargers. He ran six times for 21 yards in the first half. In the second half, he turned it up a notch, carrying 10 times for 66 yards — including a 24-yard run — for a total of 89 yards on 16 carries.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was happy with what he saw from Michael.

“We weren’t going to get frustrated with what happened early, and just (kept) sticking to it,” Carroll said, via the News Tribune. “He bounced the ball well outside on his long run – had a couple of nice runs. He’s got a long way to go, but he ran hard, looked quick and made some guys miss. So I think it’s a very good first game for him.”
