Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls says he'll be full go by start of training camp

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Seattle Seahawks open training camp at the VMAC on Saturday, July 30, and running back Thomas Rawls (ankle) says he will "most definitely" be full go that day, per ESPN's Sheil Kapadia.

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.
