KEY THURSDAY MEDIA UPDATES
***Mike Mularkey left the door slightly open on DeMarco Murray on Thursday, telling reporters Murray could practice tomorrow and play this weekend. Don't count on it. Aggravated hamstring strains are not quick recoveries, Murray hasn't practiced yet, and Derrick Henry is healthy and productive. Murray would be limited at best and at high risk of aggravation and longer-term absence. I think it's more likely Murray is ruled out on Friday than he is ready to take 15 or more touches on Sunday.
***Rob Gronkowski looks likely to play this week and without significant limitation. Jordan Reed is also trending toward playing though he may be limited and likely to miss a few snaps after an in-game hit. Jimmy Graham has not practiced yet and I don't sense much confidence from Pete Carroll. If Graham practices tomorrow and proves ready in pregame warmups, he may see high-leverage duty and have a chance to be productive. However, I think Graham is more doubtful than questionable. Tyler Eifert will likely be ruled out on Friday. He should be considered questionable next week, too.
