Seattle Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls plans to be ready for the start of training camp, he said on Sunday before Richard Sherman’s charity softball game, according to ESPN. 

Rawls sustained a fractured ankle and ligament damage after taking a low hit against the Baltimore Ravens on Dec. 13. He has not practiced since the injury.

“Rehab is going phenomenal,” Rawls said. “Running, cutting, working hard, getting back out there. I’m looking forward to being out there the first week. Rehab has been going phenomenal this whole off-season. I don’t have a break because I’ve got to work 10 times harder. So I’m excited to come back and fill that void in that backfield.”

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll has also said that he believes Rawls will be ready when camp opens on July 30.

Rawls rushed for 830 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie in 2015.
