Rawls, considered by NFL expert Kenneth Arthur to be "dope af" as a runner, has been a cause for concern since breaking his ankle against the Baltimore Ravens towards the end of last season. It looked bad, it sounded bad, and the future always feels uncertain when a first-year player goes in injured reserve, but at least it sounds like Rawls is confident that he won't miss any significant practice time for his follow-up campaign.
An undrafted free agent out of Central Michigan, Rawls beat out Christine Michael and Robert Turbin for a roster spot last season and rushed for 830 yards on 147 carries. His 5.6 yards per carry led all NFL running backs in 2015.
