Carroll: 'Counting on' RB Thomas Rawls to return Nov. 7

The Seahawks have struggled to run the ball this season, but reinforcements could be coming soon: Running back Thomas Rawls will run this week and then prepare to play the following week, coach Pete Carroll said.

That timetable would have Rawls back for the Nov. 7 game against the Buffalo Bills, a week before the Seahawks play the Patriots.

“That’s what we are counting on unless something changes,” Carroll said.

Fantasy Impact: 

Rawls hasn’t played since the second game of the season because of a fibula injury, and Carroll was optimistic that Rawls could add some needed juice to a rushing attack that has been uncharacteristically lacking this season. Carroll’s offenses have always been able to run the ball, both in terms of quantity and quality. It may take a week to ease him back into things, but it sounds like he'll be counted on once again in the Seattle backfield.
