Marshawn Lynch RB SEA 2 Days2 Comments

Lynch was a full participant in Wednesday's practice despite being listed on the Seahawks' injury report with a back injury, The Seattle Times reports.

Lynch was usually held out of Wednesday practices during the regular season, but he gave it a go this week with the Super Bowl on the horizon. Don't expect the back injury to slow him down in Sunday's game.

Lynch (non-injury) didn't take part in practice Wednesday.

Lynch missed last Wednesday's practice as well, so this is starting to become a bit routine for the veteran back. He's highly unlikely to be in any danger of missing the Super Bowl.

Lynch (non-injury) carried 25 times for 157 yards with a TD and caught one pass for 26 yards in Sunday's 28-22 overtime win over the Packers in the NFC Championship game.

Lynch, who recorded his fifth 100-yard rushing game in the postseason in the process, will take aim at at either the Patriots or Colts defense in two weeks, when the Seahawks are slated to defend their Super Bowl title at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Lynch was rested during Wednesday's practice, but he practiced fully both Thursday and Friday and appears set to see his normal workload in the Seattle backfield Sunday against the Packers.

Lynch (non-injury) was a full participant at Thursday's practice, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

Lynch enjoyed his typical Wednesday rest, and there was little doubt that he'd be back at practice Thursday. He dealt with a minor back injury throughout the season, but it never seemed to affect his running. The upcoming matchup appears quite favorable, as the Packers have a middling front seven. Robert Turbin got seven carries last week, but three of those came in garbage time.

After the Seahawks' first-round bye, Lynch kicked off the week with a full practice. However, he now has one playoff tilt under his belt and thus has reverted to his in-season practice schedule. Expect him to return to drills before week's end, and perhaps as early as Thursday.

Lynch (back) rushed for 59 yards on 14 carries and hauled in all three of his targets in the passing game for six yards in Saturday's Divisional Round win over the Panthers.

The 65 totals yards were Lynch's fewest Week 8 (also against Carolina), but he was effective enough on a per-touch basis, and the Seahawks didn't need him to carry the offense with Russell Wilson able to find success through the air. The Panthers figure to go to Lynch early and often next week against either Dallas or Green Bay, as they look to reach the Super Bowl for a second straight year.

Lynch (back) is active for Saturday's game against Carolina.

Lynch didn't even need any rest days during practice this week, logging full practices each day. He's ready to rock and has a favorable matchup against a Carolina defense that's without lead lineman Star Lotulelei (foot).

Lynch (back) is probable for Saturday's game against the Panthers.

Lynch has been bothered by his back for most of the season, but it doesn't seem to have much impact on his performance, and he was able to log full practices all week. He'll lead the Seattle backfield against a solid Carolina defense come Sunday, with the probable return of center Max Unger (ankle/knee) potentially providing a boost to the Seahawks' potent running game.

Lynch (back) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Lynch appears to be well on track to suit up for Saturday's evening contest against the Panthers. Over his career, the 28-year-old back has had some of his strongest games in the postseason, and should be a relatively safe play for those in daily contests over the weekend.
