RENTON – Seahawks coach Pete Carroll gave an update Tuesday on the statuses of tight end Jimmy Graham and running back Thomas Rawls, saying “everything’s going well” in their recoveries from the injuries that cut their 2015 seasons short.

“Everything’s really in good shape,” Carroll said during the team’s annual pre-draft press conference. “As they push to get back, we’ll just have to see what time timeline tells us. So it’s going good.”

What would Doug Baldwin do with the 26th pick if he were the Seahawks’ GM?

Graham had surgery to repair the patellar tendon in his right knee, which he tore in November, ending his debut season with the Seahawks just as it appeared he was gaining traction in Seattle’s offense. Rawls, an undrafted rookie, had already rushed for 830 yards despite only starting seven games when he went down in December with a broken ankle. Rawls said earlier this month that he is scheduled to resume running soon.

Both Graham and Rawls were present last week when the team began its voluntary offseason workout program.

Earlier this month, general manager John Schneider said he thinks they’ll both be ready by the start of the regular season.

Carroll didn’t commit to a specific timeline for either player on Tuesday. It may still be too early to know with any certainty if either player will be ready by Week 1, especially in Graham’s case given the uncertainties with patellar tendon injuries. But Carroll’s comments were another indication that both players have a chance to be.
