Jimmy Graham is recovering from a November patellar tendon rupture. This is as serious of an injury as there is, and Graham's availability for the preseason or regular season is still unclear.


Nobody knows how much Jimmy Graham will play next year or how effective he will be. Pete Carroll has spoken about potentially having him back for training camp while other reports have suggested he could begin the season on the PUP list. Graham's ceiling will obviously remain high because of his sheer ability, but questions about his health after a season in which he struggled to fit into the Seahawks passing game make for a concerning outlook.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham out for start of camp (Thu Jul 28, 10:34 PM) - Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) will not practice the first day of training camp Saturday, July 30, according to general manager John Schneider.

Our View: Graham is a man without a clear role in this offense. He certainly can catch the ball, but he didn't do enough of that last season before his injury. He's a TE1 trapped in a TE2's offense, so treat him as a TE2 and hope for the best.

Seahawks | Two key Seahawks may start on PUP list (Thu Jul 28, 06:00 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) and TE Jimmy Graham (knee) will not practice when training camp begins Saturday, July 30. Both players will be brought along slowly and could begin camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list. They are still both on track to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season, however, according to general manager John Schneider.

Our View: Rawls is a bigger concern as he has a huge role to fill with Marshawn Lynch retiring. Graham was already a guy expected to be on the bench for much of camp, and hasn't been a big factor in Seattle yet anyway. Rawls has RB2 potential, but not if he can't stay healthy. Hopefully this is just lingering recovery time from his fractured ankle in December.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham won't be rushed back (Thu Jul 21, 02:50 AM) - Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) is recovering from a ruptured right patellar tendon which he suffered Nov. 29. He is expected to be back on the field for the start of the regular season, but he won't be rushed back. Through the first 12 weeks last season he was the team's most targeted player.

Our View: The team doesn't use him effectively anyway. What is it about Seattle that makes it the place good TEs go to be mediocre? At best he is a TE2 and a low end one at that. We're not even sure he will make the start of the season, so a strong BUYER BEWARE is issued here as well.
