Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls will be running ‘soon’ as broken ankle heals
Seattle Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls will be able to run soon as he progresses through his recovery from a broken ankle, according to the Seahawks' Twitter account.
Rawls sustained the broken ankle in Seattle's Week 14 game against the Ravens. He did not require surgery to repair the injury, but he has not been able to run in more than three months.
“I’ll be running soon,” Rawls said Thursday.
In 13 games for the Seahawks, Rawls rushed for 830 yards with four touchdowns. His average of 5.6 yards per carry led the league among players with at least 100 carries.
Rawls is expected to take on a heavier load this season after the retirement of Marshawn Lynch.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said in March he was hopeful the 22-year-old would be ready for training camp.
