SEATTLE (CBS) — Seattle Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls, who has been rehabbing from a broken ankle that cut short his 2015 season, told reporters he expects to be ready for the start of training camp.
According to ESPN‘s Sheil Kapadia, Rawls said during teammate Richard Sherman’s celebrity softball game Sunday that rehab was “going phenomenal” and he would “most definitely” be ready to fully participate at Seahawks’ training camp.
The team will host 13 training camp practices beginning July 30. Rawls was unable to participate in the Seahawks’ three-day minicamp in June.
Whether or not Rawls is full-go later this month, head coach Pete Carroll has maintained that he believes both Rawls and tight end Jimmy Graham (knee) will “absolutely” be ready to play in Seattle’s Sept. 11 season opener against the Miami Dolphins.
“They would have to incur some issues that we can’t foresee right now for that not to happen,” he told reporters in June.
