As the team had promised, Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls was a full participant in Sunday’s practice as he continues on his road to recovery from off-season surgery to repair a broken and dislocated ankle.
Seahawks general manager John Schneider has said the team hopes to get Rawls into the fourth preseason game at Oakland on Sept. 1, though it remains unclear if or when Rawls will play in the preseason.
Regardless of what he does in the preseason, though, Rawls remains on track to be ready for the regular season opener Sept. 11, head coach Pete Carroll said Sunday.
Carroll said the emergence of Christine Michael makes it easier for the Seahawks to be patient with Rawls. Carroll said Michael has been a positive addition and will allow them to make sure Rawls is ready to go. Carroll has called the two a one-two punch leaving speculation Michael is going to be a part of the offense.
