Ifedi questionable, Jimmy Graham to play against Dolphins
RENTON, Wash. (AP) Seahawks right guard Germain Ifedi is listed as questionable to play against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
Ifedi, Seattle's first-round draft pick, has been the team's starting right guard throughout the offseason but he injured his ankle in practice Wednesday. With his playing status in doubt, it could force the Seahawks to reshuffle their starting line just days before having to face Ndamukong Suh and the Dolphins' strong front.
Coach Pete Carroll said Ifedi twisted his ankle and they won't know about the severity for a few more days.
J'Marcus Webb said he was expecting to play at right guard in place of Ifedi.
''It's a great opportunity to work with these guys this week and really dominate the Miami front and come out with a win at home,'' Webb said.
Tight end Jimmy Graham is officially listed as questionable, but managed to be a full participant in practice all week. Graham did not play in the preseason as he eased back into practice following a torn patellar tendon that ended his 2015 season.
''He had a great last few weeks. He's done everything we could ask of him. He couldn't be more excited about playing,'' Carroll said.
Running back Thomas Rawls was back to full practice participation on Friday after sitting out Thursday's practice due to a headache and dizziness. He has worked back to full strength after suffering a broken ankle and ligament damage last December.
While Rawls is healthy and expected to play, Christine Michael will get the start for Seattle.
''I just want to contribute, show guys I can be consistent. I can be dependable,'' Michael said. ''They can count on me and I just know what I'm doing and I know my job. Feels good though. Definitely a privilege, definitely an honor, man. Just got to go out there and keep proving myself and doing what I'm doing.''
