Injured Seahawks Thomas Rawls and Jimmy Graham have continued to do well in their recovery but it remains too early to set a specific timeline for their return, coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday.
The recoveries from season-ending injuries for Seahawks players Thomas Rawls and Jimmy Graham have gone as planned but it remains too early to establish a set timeline for their return, coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday.
“Everything’s going well, yeah,” Carroll said during the team’s annual pre-draft press conference. “Everything’s really in good shape. It’s just when they push to get back we are going to have to see what the timeline is, you know, so we can tell. It’s going good.”
Rawls suffered a broken ankle during a win at Baltimore on Dec. 13 while Graham suffered a torn patellar tendon in the win over Pittsburgh on Nov. 29.
While Carroll was vague about a timeline Tuesday, the team general feeling is that each could be ready for the beginning of the season — particularly Rawls, whose injury has a shorter timeframe for recovery — but that each might not participate much in the pre-season.
