The Seahawks listed tight end Jimmy Graham as a full participant in Wednesday’s practice on their first official injury report of the season.
That’s a positive sign as Graham tries to return from the knee injury that cut his 2015 season short in time for Sunday’s season opener, but no final decision has been made.
Last week, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the team was in no hurry to decide on Graham’s availability for the opener and that it would be late this week before a decision was made. Graham was activated from PUP Aug. 10 and was practicing “full speed” last week.
Interestingly, the Seahawks did not list running back Thomas Rawls on the injury report. Rawls missed most of the summer but played a little in last week’s preseason finale. He’s recovering from a fractured ankle.
The Seahawks listed rookie tight end Nick Vannett (ankle) and cornerback Tharold Simon (knee) as not having participated in practice Wednesday. Rookie tackle Germain Ifedi (ankle) was a limited participant, and rookie defensive tackle Jarran Reed (toe) was listed as a full participant.
