BALTIMORE - Running back Thomas Rawls suffered an ankle injury on the Seahawks' opening possession of their Week 14 road game against the Baltimore Ravens and will not return.
Rawls' injury came with Seattle operating inside the red zone, where the rookie went down after getting stuffed for minus-3 yards. Rawls was attended to by the Seahawks training staff before walking off of the field and into the locker room under his own power.
Rawls appeared on his way to a big day against the Ravens, accounting for 44 rushing yards on six carries (7.3-yard average) on the Seahawks' initial drive that ended with a 8-yard touchdown toss from quarterback Russell Wilson to wide receiver Tyler Lockett.
The Seahawks will turn to Fred Jackson and DuJuan Harris at running back in Rawls' absence with incumbent starter Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) still recovering from surgery.
UPDATE: According to head coach Pete Carroll Thomas Rawl will miss the remainder of the season with a broken ankle and ligament damage.
