Graham (knee) will begin training camp on the PUP list, Curtis Crabtree of ProFootballTalk.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is an unsurprising news as head coach Pete Carrol had already stated Graham was expected to be eased into training camp. He is recovering from a torn patellar tendon, and has not experienced any setbacks. The team still expects him to be ready for Week 1.

Head coach Pete Carroll stated that the expectation for Graham (knee) remains for him to be ready by the start of the regular season, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Carroll is echoing the same sentiment he's stressed all offseason in regards to Graham, but, notably, it can be inferred that Graham has still not suffered any setbacks in his recovery from a torn patellar tendon. However, the prolific tight end does not have a concrete timetable for his return, and is unlikely to be a participant in practice when the Seahawks open training camp on Saturday.

Although Graham (knee) is expected to "ease into training camp," head coach Pete Carroll believes that the tight end will be ready for the regular season, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Seahawks held their first batch of OTAs this week, which Graham was unable to participate in, as expected. However, he fit in some light running and caught some passes on the side Thursday, so he seems to have reached a good place in his recovery from a torn patellar tendon in his right knee. In the end, his ability to handle snaps during the preseason will forecast if he's on pace to be on the field in Week 1.

Graham (knee) is expected to be ready to play Week 1, general manager John Schneider told Seattle's KJR radio Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Graham ruptured the patella tendon in his right knee in Week 12 last season. Schneider said Graham might not be ready for the first couple preseason games, but that getting him ready for Week 1 is the priority. That still might be optimistic, as patella ruptures are notoriously severe injuries.

Graham, who suffered a ruptured patella tendon in Week 12 last season, could return by the end of the training camp, coach Pete Carroll said Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Carroll said Graham is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery. If Graham does not return until the end of training camp, it's likely he won't be ready for Week 1.

Graham (knee) still has no timetable for a return from the ruptured patella tendon he suffered in Week 12, Seahawks GM John Schneider told ESPN on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Schneider said Graham is rehabilitating the knee down in Miami and is "ready to get after it," but the injury is too severe to know how it will respond at this point. The Seahawks are expected to keep Graham around despite a $9 million cap hit next season, so they obviously expect he will be back soon enough to make an impact, but we'll monitor his rehab throughout the offseason.

Graham (knee) will return to the Seahawks next season, according to general manager John Schneider, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Graham's questionable fit with the Seahawks resulted in sub-par numbers of 48 catches for 605 yards and only two touchdowns prior to his season-ending knee injury in November. While Seattle's offense really kicked into gear following Graham's injury, the tight end remains in the team's plans going forward, according to Schneider. Knowing that, it'll be worthwhile to track Graham's progress within the offense once he returns healthy ahead of next season.

Head coach Pete Carroll relayed Monday that Graham has ditched crutches and continues to rehab his right knee in Florida, according to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Graham's first season with the Seahawks was abbreviated due to a torn patellar tendon, which he suffered on Nov. 29. Struggling to find consistency with the shiny new toy in town, he notched 48 catches (on 74 targets) for 605 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games. With Graham and Marshawn Lynch out due to injury down the stretch, most of the offensive burden was placed on Russell Wilson's shoulders, and he was up to the task, accounting for 20 passing touchdowns and another on the ground over the final seven contests (including playoffs). Although Carroll expects Graham to fulfill the third year of his current contract in 2016, it'll be interesting to see how the tight end is integrated into a scheme that could be more vertical-based if Lynch isn't retained.

Graham (knee) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

After head coach Pete Carroll revealed that Graham sustained a torn patellar tendon in his right knee this weekend, it was inevitable that the tight end would land on injured reserve, which officially ends his first campaign with the Seahawks. A consistent threat for Russell Wilson in the passing attack, Graham was unable to match his stature as a Saint, accruing 48 catches (on 74 targets) for 605 yards and two touchdowns across 11 games. For the rest of the season and Seattle's potential appearance in the playoffs, Luke Willson will serve as the top tight end, while Cooper Helfet remains in reserve.

Graham (knee) will need surgery to repair his patellar tendon, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Graham will be out for the rest of the season. The tight end presumably tore his patellar tendon, which means he's no lock to be ready for training camp next year. Luke Willson will take over as the Seahawks' top tight end, with Cooper Helfet serving as the No. 2. The Seattle wide receivers may also see a few more targets due to Graham's absence.
