Despite a bruised shoulder sustained in Saturday’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals, Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls is on pace to play in Seattle’s regular season finale against the San Francisco 49ers.

“What bothered him is very slight and he should be fine,” head coach Pete Carroll said.

Rawls had an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of the issue. He initially injured his shoulder in the second quarter against Arizona. After trying to get his shoulder loose by shaking and rotating his arm, Rawls was replaced for the remainder of the game by Alex Collins.

Rawls fully participated in practice for the Seahaws on Wednesday.

“I’m feeling good. I’m feeling great. I’m practicing today. We’ll see how the week goes and I’m excited to get back out there,” Rawls said.

  1. I love the Seahawks, but, as it has turned out, we ended up with some pretty soft players that we have drafted the last 2 years. Rawls is always hurt, Prosise is always hurt, Lockett is always hurt, we have had injuries on the offensive line and the defensive line.

    There is a lot of talent with Rawls, Prosise, and Lockett, but it means so little when they can’t stay on the field.

  2. Might Rawls “always being hurt” have something in common with Seattle’s travesty of an OL? It’s a legitimate question.

  3. We’ve had a bunch of injuries this year especially on the offense. I think that’s directly reflected on the Oline play this year. Russell never got hurt his first three four years and got three injuries this season…..Lockett and Prosise I think were freak injuries and they’re not really injury prone. Rawls on the other hand needs to eat some more red meat and hit the heavy weights to make his bones stronger.
