Graham (knee) is expected to be ready to play Week 1, general manager John Schneider told Seattle's KJR radio Wednesday.
Graham ruptured the patella tendon in his right knee in Week 12 last season. Schneider said Graham might not be ready for the first couple preseason games, but that getting him ready for Week 1 is the priority. That still might be optimistic, as patella ruptures are notoriously severe injuries.
Rawls (ankle) is expected to be ready to play Week 1, general manager John Schneider told Seattle's KJR radio Wednesday.
Rawls suffered a season-ending broken ankle in Week 14 last year. His rehab has gone well, but Scheinder said the team won't push him to return for preseason games. Week 1 is the priority. Rawls, who impressed last year as an undrafted rookie, will start this year after Marshawn Lynch retired. The Seahawks likely will bring in some camp competition, but if Rawls is healthy, he'll be the No. 1 RB Week 1.
Richardson (hamstring) was placed on season-long injured reserve Saturday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.
Richardson appeared in just one game this season, making one catch for 40 yards against the Cardinals in Week 10. The former second-round pick has been a disappointment thus far in his young career, but he's expected to be ready for training camp next season.
Seahawks running back Tharold Simon has been placed on injured reserve Saturday, per Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR.
Simon dislocated his toe a week before the regular season opener and briefly played in Week 2 before dislocating it again. With the team hurting at that position, Rod Smith was called up from the practice squad to take Simon's place on the roster.
Bethel underwent surgery to repair a fractured foot this week, which is expected to sideline the cornerback during OTAs, the Arizona Republic reports.
Bethel reportedly played through a "slight" fracture in the foot last season, yet he was forced into a starting role following Tyrann Mathieu's torn ACL in Week 15. In the following four contests (including playoffs), Bethel totaled 25 tackles (24 solo), four passes defended, and one interception. With Jerraud Powers exploring free agency, Bethel is currently penciled in as the starting cornerback opposite Patrick Peterson (ankle), but the upcoming NFL Draft and his recovery may impact his current standing.
Mathieu isn't targeting a specific date for his return to the field from a torn ACL in his right knee, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. "I don't really want to rush it," Mathieu said recently. "Whenever I'm comfortable, that's when I want to go out there."
Mathieu's cautious approach has basis in fact, as the injury that ended his rookie season in 2013 (ACL and LCL tears in his left knee) sapped his effectiveness in the subsequent campaign. Fortunately for the defensive back, this particular recovery effort has been "so much easier" when compared with his previous rehabilitation. While his activity level was non-existent in the aftermath of the first surgery, he's already progressed to running on a treadmill in a harness, and there's a belief that he's only a few months away from wearing a helmet and kicking off football drills. No matter the path he takes, the offseason may include a contract extension at some point after he achieved the first Pro Bowl and All-Pro bids of his career this past season.
Momah (knee) will be returning to the Cardinals in 2016, as the exclusive rights free agent was tendered a contract Thursday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.
Momah showed promise throughout his first preseason with the Cardinals, but a torn meniscus suffered on the eve of the regular season resulted in a stay on injured reserve. Following Thursday's move, head coach Bruce Arians will thus get another look at the tight end, who will join Darren Fells, Troy Niklas, and Gerald Christian, at least, in the offseason program.
Peterson's recovery from right ankle surgery is expected to encompass 6-to-8 weeks, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
With knowledge of his recovery timetable coming to the fore, Peterson is a candidate to miss the entire offseason program, despite optimism that OTAs could be in his future in the aftermath of this week's procedure. Even if he fails to take the field before training camp, he's hopeful that he'll avoid any of the recurring issues from the past two campaigns, though his ironman status as a professional remains intact.
