Graham (knee) began team work in practice on Wednesday and will continue to ramp up his workload next week, Curtis Crabtree of ProFootballTalk.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Graham may not be ready to go by Week 1, his involvement in team drills is a huge step in the right direction. Look for more updates to come in the following week as the tight end expands his workload. Expect Luke Wilson to dominate the first-team reps the remainder of the preseason schedule.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the team saw progress in Graham's knee after running some tests over the weekend, according to seattlepi.com.

EDGE Analysis

Though he didn't care to elaborate during Sunday's media session, Carroll did provide some useful information just four days prior, saying that Graham is close to being cleared for team drills. At this point, Graham might not be ready for Week 1 even if he were to return to practice within the next few days, as his initial participation in team drills probably wouldn't include full-contact work. The 29-year-old tight end is highly unlikely to play in a preseason game, but the Seahawks haven't given up hope that he could be ready for Week 1. Even if he does suit up for the first game, Graham might be eased back in with a part-time role, and there's no guarantee he'll fully regain his explosiveness.

Graham (knee) might not be ready for Week 1, ESPNreports.

EDGE Analysis

Graham returned to practice last week but has not participated in team drills. Coach Pete Carroll said the team has no timetable for Graham to be back to full speed. The previous expectation that Graham would be ready for Week 1 always seemed a overly optimistic, and it wouldn't be surprising if he missed more than just one week considering the severity of the injury.

Head coach Pete Carroll said Graham (knee) is close to being cleared for team drills and will undergo more testing early next week, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

EDGE Analysis

Graham has resumed practicing for almost exactly a week now, but is being contained to a very limited level of participation. Since Carroll noted that Graham still has more testing do next week, the tight end is all but confirmed as out for the Seahawks' exhibition game against the Vikings on Thursday, and will aim to take the field for Seattle's third preseason game versus Dallas next Thursday.

Graham (knee) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Having just returned to practice Wednesday, Graham will likely miss at least the first two preseason games. His progress will need to be monitored even after he gets on the field, as players often lack their prior explosiveness when returning from major patella injuries.

Graham returned to practice on Wednesday, ending his stint on the PUP list, Stephen Cohen of Seattle Pi reports.

EDGE Analysis

Graham is back out on the field for the first time since suffering a season-ending knee injury last November. Although he is back, it doesn't appear likely that the tight end will be ready in time for Saturday's preseason opener against the Chiefs.

Coach Pete Carroll noted Tuesday that Graham (knee) is "right at the edge of getting back. He's close."

EDGE Analysis

It doesn't seem likely that Graham is a candidate to play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Chiefs, but a return to the field, in any capacity, could trigger the once-elite tight end's potential ascent up fantasy cheat sheets. For now though, questions will persist about Graham's 2016 prospects until he is able to demonstrate his level of recovery from last year's season-ending torn right patellar tendon.

Graham, who is still on the PUP list, is close to returning from his season-ending knee injury, the Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Pete Carroll said Graham is close to being considered day-to-day. Graham is still expected to be ready for Week 1, but that is not a lock.

Graham (knee) hasn't practiced in training camp as of Thursday, Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Graham was slated for a reevaluation during Wednesday's day off, but the state of his knee hasn't improved enough to allow him to take the practice field, even for individual drills. The end game is active status once the regular season kicks off, though, which will require that the patella tendon in his right knee can hold up to the wear and tear of game action.
