Graham (knee) began team work in practice on Wednesday and will continue to ramp up his workload next week, Curtis Crabtree of ProFootballTalk.com reports.
While Graham may not be ready to go by Week 1, his involvement in team drills is a huge step in the right direction. Look for more updates to come in the following week as the tight end expands his workload. Expect Luke Wilson to dominate the first-team reps the remainder of the preseason schedule.
Head coach Pete Carroll professed Rawls (ankle) will not play in Seattle's third preseason game on Thursday but will be ready for the team's season opener Sep. 11 against Miami, Sports Radio KJR's Curtis Crabtree reports.
Rawls has been a full participant in every practice since rejoining the team on Sunday, and was able to increase his workload in each consecutive session. It's unclear whether he will see time in the Seahawks' preseason finale Sep. 1 in Oakland, though. But, as it stands, Rawls and Christine Michael seem set to spearhead Seattle's rushing attack entering the 2016 campaign.
Prosise (hamstring) gained 23 yards on four carries in Thursday's 27-17 preseason victory over the Cowboys.
With Thomas Rawls sitting out the contest, Prosise was only behind Christine Michael in carries on the night. After missing the first two preseason games-- not to mention multiple weeks of practice-- with a hamstring strain, the outing was an important one for Prosise, whose pass-catching skills are expected to make him an effective third-down option in his rookie season. Ironically, Prosise was shut out through the air Thursday, but did turn in a solid ground performance. Considering the amount of time he's missed, the 2016 third-round pick should see extended action in Seattle's final preseason contest.
Kaepernick (shoulder) expects to take the field for Friday's preseason game versus the Packers, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Kaepernick tended to what head coach Chip Kelly termed "dead arm" for more than a week, but his return to full practices both Monday and Tuesday has seemingly paved the way for his first appearance of the preseason. So far, Kelly has delayed naming the 49ers' starting quarterback due to Kaepernick's lack of game action. Backing up that sentiment, offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins said, "It's a competition, and Kap hasn't had a chance to perform yet. So, when that happens and when coach [Kelly] feels like it's time, we'll do that. But right now it's not time." Two exhibitions remain for Kaepernick to make a play for the gig, but Blaine Gabbert has handled the first-team reps to this stage of the preseason.
Lewis suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's preseason opener and will now miss the remainder of this season, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Lewis was forced out during the third quarter of Sunday's game, when he was the second signal-caller used in wake of Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) being sidelined. However, now that his season has already come to a close, rookie Jeff Driskel should see more reps behind Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert in practice.
Tartt (undisclosed) was activated from the non-football injury list Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Tartt was sidelined after tweaking a muscle, but it is unclear where on his body the tweak occurred. However, it does not appear to be a serious issue, as he has returned after a one week absence. The 24-year-old currently projects to be the teams back up strong safety.
