Seahawks hoping to have Thomas Rawls back next week

Last season, Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls was one of the most promising rookies in the NFL, carrying 147 times for 830 yards and four touchdowns before an ankle injury cut his season short. This season, Rawls managed just 19 carries for 25 yards before suffering a broken fibula.

But Rawls is back at practice, and coach Pete Carroll likes what he sees.

“He looked really fast and confident making his breaks and moves,” Carroll said. “He practiced throughout the week. It was a really good week for Thomas coming back. You couldn’t see anything that was bothering him at all, so it was really, really positive.”

Carroll said he doesn’t know if Rawls will play next week against the Eagles, but he’s hopeful that it can happen.

“I don’t know that. We’ll just go to next week and see what happens. He has to respond, see how he does and all that, but he looked really good. You couldn’t see that there was anything holding him back at this point. His confidence has got to be there, and his conditioning looked great, so I think we really have a chance. We’ll see how that goes,” Carroll said.

Seahawks running back Christine Michael is listed as questionable for Sunday night with a hamstring injury, so Seattle may be down to just C.J. Prosise at running back.

  1. If c Mike is injured, why isn’t running back collins getting touches? We drafted youth and we can’t risk injury to Prosise

  2. The genius of Belichick is that he takes away whatever a team does well and challenges them to win with their second best tool. We have a good passing attack and the offensive line even pass blocks well. So passing is what Belichick will try to take away.

    That means there will be 1 to 2 men fewer in the box to stop the run. CJ Prosise is going to have a huge game for us. His quickness to the hole and his sheer speed after contact are going to be tremendous assets for us.

    Your offensive line pass blocks well? Check again….Wilson is getting killed out there…..

  4. Bevell will have to call a spectacular game to pull this off. Let’s get RB Alex Collins more involved for a change.

    That’s a strangled theory of causation, especially when former NFL greats like Chris Collinsworth on Thursday Night Football routinely note that the Patriots regularly have the best tackling D-line and LBs in the NFL.
