There aren’t too many surprises.
Thomas Rawls and Jimmy Graham won’t be making their debuts, but Rawls is still expected to be ready for Week 1 (Pete Carroll said without “hesitation” on Wednesday) and Graham was seen running full sprints on the sidelines before the game.
Kevin Smith will be making his 2016 preseason debut, while Kasen Williams is in serious danger of not making the first round of cuts due to missing another game.
Marcus Burley, Trovon Reed, and DeAngelo Tyson also needed these reps tonight. I think the team already knows what they have with Sealver Siliga, but that doesn’t mean he’s not on the bubble, especially if the other DTs make some big plays against the Cowboys; Jordan Hill will be making his preseason debut also.
Nick Vannett and Jarran Reed both suffered injuries against the Vikings last week. My expectation is that Vannett won’t be ready for Week 1 now; that’s entirely speculation on my part, just based off of the history of high ankle sprains like the one suffered by Vannett.
C.J. Prosise and Will Tukuafu will also make their 2016 preseason debuts.
