Rawls' status is in question for the Seahawks first day of camp on Saturday, Seahawks reporter John Boyle reports.
Rawls said in early July that he expected to be fully healthy entering training camp, but, with camp just a few days away, general manager John Schneider said that Rawls isn't likely to practice on Saturday, the first day of Seahawks camp. Despite not currently being at 100 percent, Rawls status for the regular season is not in question and he'll be the teams starting running back after playing well in relief of Marshawn Lynch last season.
Although Graham (knee) is expected to "ease into training camp," head coach Pete Carroll believes that the tight end will be ready for the regular season, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.
The Seahawks held their first batch of OTAs this week, which Graham was unable to participate in, as expected. However, he fit in some light running and caught some passes on the side Thursday, so he seems to have reached a good place in his recovery from a torn patellar tendon in his right knee. In the end, his ability to handle snaps during the preseason will forecast if he's on pace to be on the field in Week 1.
Nkemdiche is tending to an ankle sprain and is day-to-day, according to head coach Bruce Arians.
Earlier this week, Nkemdiche sustained the injury during the Cardinals' QB School, forcing him to the sideline for the early sessions of training camp. The 2016 first-round pick doesn't have a clear-cut timetable for a return, but he's expected to bolster the defensive line ranks once he's healthy enough to partake in drills.
