The Seattle Seahawks have not managed to avoid injuries in training camp, but hopefully nobody will ever get hurt again. Not just in camp, but during the season, and for the rest of our lives. Let us focus on eternal life, health, and energy for a while, shall we? In the meantime, here are a few updates from camp on those who were injured before Tuesday, may have been injured on Tuesday, and who could be coming back soon:
- Pete Carroll said that tight end Jimmy Graham (knee) is “right on the edge of coming back” from the PUP list. Graham has not done anything other than rehab since tearing his patellar tendon against the Steelers last season. He doesn’t seem likely to play in the preseason but is expected to be ready for the Dolphins in Week 1.
- Thomas Rawls returned from the PUP on Tuesday. He ran around, did some drills, but isn’t ready for contact. No word on how much he may play in the preseason, if at all. “It’s going to be a while” before he is fully back, according to Carroll. Rawls hasn’t practiced fully since breaking his ankle against the Ravens last year.
- Add Alex Collins to the list of running backs with some sort of injury: He was on the sidelines on Tuesday with an ankle issue. The team will be more cautious with Collins because he had a full scrimmage on Sunday and is one of the few running backs who was fully healthy. In the meantime, George Farmer, who was a corner up to a few days ago, is now the team’s “third down back” until C.J. Prosise gets back.
- Carroll hopes that Prosise will be ready for the team’s second preseason game, which takes place a week from Thursday. Prosise has missed all of training camp with a hamstring injury.
- Running back Zac Brooks is still out with a hamstring injury. Brooks and receiver Kasen Williams could be out for at least another week.
- Kam Chancellor returned to practice on Tuesday after a few days of rest, while Doug Baldwin remains sidelined with a calf/Achilles issue. The team doesn’t seem concerned about either, just playing it safe.
- Jordan Hill was out Tuesday. Quentin Jefferson was nicked up and out too but Carroll expects him to play on Saturday. Sealver Siliga was out and expected back in a day or two.
