Thomas Rawls rushed five times for four yards in the Seahawks' Week 2 win over the 49ers.
Rawls got the start, but he played just 16 snaps. Chris Carson played 51 while seeing 15 more carries and gaining 89 more yards on the ground. Perhaps Rawls was still working his way back into shape, but there is no way the Seahawks can send Carson to the bench after he put the offense on his back late in the game. Rawls is still a hold in most formats, but he is not a viable starter. Sep 17 - 7:46 PM

Thomas Rawls (ankle) has been removed from the Week 2 injury report.

Rawls has practiced fully the last two weeks. It confirms he'll be active after Seattle held him out of the season opener, but his return further muddles the Seahawks backfield. Rawls should be avoided in his first game back.

Thomas Rawls (ankle) is practicing in full for Week 2 against the 49ers.

Unlike last week when Rawls practiced fully and didn't play, he should be a go for Sunday's home opener. Rawls' return should render Eddie Lacy obsolete in Seattle's backfield after Lacy played just seven snaps in Week 1.

Coach Pete Carroll said Thomas Rawls (ankle) will play Week 2 against the 49ers.

Rawls practiced in "full" all last week before being inactive for the opener. Eddie Lacy predictably was awful in his first game with the team, and rookie Chris Carson led the backfield in snaps. Nearing 100 percent, Rawls should get the "start" against San Francisco, but his addition just further muddles this situation. None of the Seattle backs can be trusted as more than RB3s.
Sep 11 - 6:23 PM

Seahawks declared RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) inactive for Week 1 against the Packers.

The Seahawks misleadingly listed Rawls as a "full" participant in practice before declaring him a game-time decision. Eddie Lacy will get the start, with seventh-rounder Chris Carson mixing in on early downs. C.J. Prosise will handle passing situations. Lacy is a volatile FLEX option. Rawls is week to week. Also inactive for the Seahawks are RB J.D. McKissic, FS Tedric Thompson, S Delano Hill, LB Michael Wilhoite, OG Jordan Roos and OT Isaiah Battle.
Sep 10 - 2:57 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks could hold Thomas Rawls (questionable, ankle) out until he's 100 percent.

The Seahawks surprisingly labeled Rawls a game-time decision for Sunday's opener in Green Bay after he put in a full week of practice and this report suggests he's on the wrong side of questionable. Eddie Lacy would likely get the bulk of Seattle's early-down work if Rawls can't go, though C.J. Prosise and Chris Carson would also be involved. Fantasy owners would be wise to stay clear of the Seahawks' muddled backfield this week and going forward.

Thomas Rawls (questionable, ankle) will be a game-time decision for Week 1 against the Packers.

Rawls practiced fully all week, but isn't a lock to play in the season opener. Even if active, his workload is a concern after missing the late stages of training camp. Eddie Lacy is the favorite to start and get the majority of carries. C.J. Prosise could also see an expanded role.
Sep 8 - 5:11 PM

Thomas Rawls (ankle) is questionable for Week 1 against the Packers.

The questionable listing is a surprise as Rawls has practiced fully all week. He should be active for Sunday's opener but his workload is obviously in question after missing the bulk of camp with a high-ankle sprain. Playing at less than 100 percent while sharing reps with Eddie Lacy, Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise, Rawls will be a player to avoid this week.
Sep 8 - 4:42 PM

Thomas Rawls (ankle) remained "full" in Thursday's practice.

Barring a surprise setback or injury report shenanigans, Rawls is going to be active for Sunday's opener against the Packers, setting up an unpredictable workload situation in the Seahawks' backfield. Rawls, Eddie Lacy and Chris Carson could all see work on early downs. C.J. Prosise will be the third-down back. Rawls is a volatile RB3/4 for Week 1.
Sep 7 - 7:42 PM

Thomas Rawls (ankle) is practicing in full for Week 1 against the Packers.

Coach Pete Carroll was noncommittal when asked about Rawls' status earlier today, but his presence at practice suggests he'll be ready to roll come Sunday. Coming off a high-ankle sprain and mired in a backfield committee with Eddie Lacy, C.J. Prosise and Chris Carson, Rawls doesn't make for an appealing fantasy option in Week 1.
Sep 6 - 7:41 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said Thomas Rawls (ankle) is questionable for Week 1 against the Packers.

Carroll admitted Rawls' injury is of the high-ankle variety, which is a new development. All we had known previously was that Rawls had some sort of ankle issue. Carroll hopes Rawls will progress to "probable" status by the end of the week, but he said Eddie Lacy is ready for a full workload if needed, Chris Carson can pitch in, and C.J. Prosise is 100 percent healthy.
Sep 6 - 3:58 PM

Thomas Rawls is listed as the starting running back on the Seahawks' Week 1 depth chart.

Rawls' Week 1 availability is uncertain as he battles an ankle injury, but it's confirmation he outplayed Eddie Lacy this summer. With third-down back C.J. Prosise and seventh-rounder Chris Carson factoring in, Seattle's backfield is a tough early-season forecast, but Rawls appears to have earned the benefit of the doubt. Going by Lacy's preseason, the ex-Packer won't run away with the job even if Rawls misses the opener.
Sep 5 - 5:31 PM

Speaking Monday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was noncommittal on Thomas Rawls' (ankle) Week 1 status.

Carroll said he expects to find out Rawls' status during the week, and that C.J. Prosise, who also has an ankle injury, is "a little ahead" of Rawls in his recovery. It's beginning to look like Eddie Lacy has backed into a Week 1 start against his former team Green Bay. Prosise will handle passing downs.
Sep 5 - 2:29 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll considers both Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy starters.

"You start with those two, but then C.J. Prosise brings some stuff and Chris Carson is really exciting," Carroll said. "If a guy takes over and it’s obvious, I got no problem with that either. We are pretty wide open." This falls in line with what's been expected. The Seahawks plan to split early-down work between Rawls and Lacy after neither stood out this preseason. Rawls and Prosise have been dealing with injuries, but could play in Thursday's finale.

Thomas Rawls was listed atop the Seahawks' latest running back depth chart.

That puts him ahead of Eddie Lacy, Alex Collins, Chris Carson and passing-down back C.J. Prosise. Rawls has been leading the pack all summer, though his ankle injury could give Lacy and others a chance to make up ground. Injury-prone and likely to split carries, Rawls is little more than a back-end RB3 in fantasy.
