Pete Carroll: Seahawks won’t rush Thomas Rawls back

continues to insist will be the ’ starting running back when he’s fully healthy, but it might not happen out of the gate.

“He’s ready in the next couple weeks to get back in where he can start a game, take a game over and do all of the things that he can do,” Carroll said, via ESPN. “It’s still time to take care of him as we get him back. He only carried the ball a couple times so far. But he’s done everything we could ask of him. He’s had an extraordinary offseason of hard work. Everybody admires the heck out of him. He was here every day throughout the entire offseason getting ready and just did a great job. So it’s a great accomplishment for wholesale jerseys. And he looks like he’s at full speed, ready to go.”

Rawls broke out in 2015, displayed extraordinary power and ability to pinball off defenders. The brawny, compact back plowed over opponents for 5.6 yards per carry, 830 yards and four touchdowns before his rookie season was prematurely ended by a broken ankle.

The 23-year-old Central Michigan product didn’t return until the final preseason game, taking two totes for seven yards.

With ’s Awakening taking place this preseason, the Seahawks have the luxury of bringing Rawls along slow, ensuring he’s completely healthy before upping the workload.

“We’re just making progress with him,” Carroll said. “You don’t want to rush him. This is his second preseason game in a sense, as far as relative to the other guys. So we’ll see how he does. I’d love for him to carry the ball quite a bit in this game, and then we’ll know where we stand going into the next week. It’s just really bringing him along properly and carefully. We want to make sure we take care of him.”

With Michael showing spry cuts in space, keen vision and tackle breaking ability, the Seahawks will boast a stellar one-two punch in the backfield. But we won’t see it in full force until Rawls is fully healthy.

“As you go through the last play — usually one game doesn’t define us. So we’ll look at it,” a much calmer Quinn told reporters after the game. “We certainly had other opportunities in the game to go capitalize and finish, so we won’t let it come down to one time for us, or at least comment on that.”

Pass interference will undoubtedly work itself into just about every NFL discussion this week after two calls either dramatically influenced the outcome of a game or changed one altogether. In East Rutherford, New Jersey, Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was flagged for a pass interference call on Ravens wideout , which allowed the Ravens to come back and score a go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter.

After the game, the victorious Giants were still furious and mystified.

Even though it was a crucial call, I’ve got to live with it because that’s the decision that he made. No matter what I do, he’s not going to overturn it, so I just chilled.”

In Seattle, the no-call on Seahawks corner Richard Sherman with 1:30 remaining occurred during a pass to Julio Jones. Atlanta was trailing by two and frantically trying to get into field goal range for a game-winning kick. Sherman appeared to grab one of Jones’ hands and force him to the ground during the attempted catch.

Had Jones come down with the ball, he would have ended up roughly on the Seahawks’ 35-yard line. The play started on Atlanta’s own 25-yard line.

“I do (think I was interfered with),” Jones told reporters after the game. “Before I took off, he grabbed my right side and spun me around before I jumped up. But it was just a missed call. It’s over with. It’s done. We on to the next one now.”

Kudos to the Falcons for keeping this one relatively in check, even if they had every reason not to. It seems like they’ll leave the outrage to their fan base.
