Thursday Practice Report: Jimmy Graham a Full Participant For Second Straight Day

A closer look at Thursday's practice report for the Seahawks and Miami Dolphins ahead of Sunday's regular-season opener at CenturyLink Field.

Check out the best photos from the Seahawks practice on Thursday as they prepare for the first regular season game of 2016 against the Miami Dolphins.

Jimmy Graham was a full participant at practice for a second straight day this week, an encouraging sign that the tight end is on track to play in the team's regular-season opener against the Miami Dolphins at CenturyLink Field. 

On Wednesday, Seattle head coach Pete Carroll said he would need to see Graham feel comfortable going "full out in everything that we're doing and respond from those days and feel really good about it" before determining Graham's availability for Week 1. If Graham does play, offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said his snaps will be monitored, likening the experience to a "first preseason game."

After being held out of Wednesday's practice, cornerback Tharold Simon (knee) returned in limited fashion on Thursday, while defensive tackle Jarran Reed (toe) was full-go for a second consecutive day. Tight end Nick Vannett (ankle), who Carroll has already ruled out for the season opener, offensive guard Germain Ifedi (ankle), and running back Thomas Rawls (illness) did not participate Thursday. More information on Ifedi and Rawls' status should become available as coach Carroll meets with the media on Friday, and the team's final practice report is distributed.

The Dolphins, meanwhile, got an early start on their coast-to-coast travel, departing for the Seattle area on Thursday to give their players more time to adjust, Miami head coach Adam Gase said via conference call on Wednesday. That means that the Dolphins' Thursday report is an estimation of participation had the team held a traditional practice, and it shows Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey (hip) and wide receiver DeVante Parker (hamstring) as not taking part for a second straight day.
