Marshawn Lynch RB SEA 1 Day1 Comment

Lynch is dealing with "ongoing" back concern, which will be watched closely this week, Liz Mathews of ESPN 710 Seattle reports.

Lynch was beset by a back concern almost weekly during the 2012 season, yet he didn't miss a game en route to a career-high 1,590 yards on the ground. Meanwhile, the issue may explain his non-typical usage in Week 2, when he garnered six carries versus four receptions. Expect his status to be clarified by the release of Wednesday's injury report, but note that his last absence on Oct. 23, 2011, occurred when he awoke with spasms on game day.

Lynch had just six carries for 36 yards in Sunday's loss at San Diego. He did contribute as a pass catcher though, with four receptions for 27 yards and a touchdown.

Lynch got very little work on the ground because San Diego controlled the ball for over 42 minutes. His 14-yard touchdown late in the third quarter did soften the blow for fantasy owners though. It would be surprising if Seattle didn't pound the ball next week at home against Denver.

Lynch had 20 carries for 110 yards and two touchdowns, adding one reception for 14 yards, in Thursday's season opener against the Packers.

Lynch looked like his usual powerful self, breaking tackles while running as hard as any player in the league. His brief holdout and limited preseason can safely be buried as non-issues, and Lynch has a good chance to improve on last year's 4.2 yards per carry, after the Seahawks dealt with an unusual number of injuries on the offensive line in 2013. Lynch handled 20 of Seattle's 37 rushing attempts Thursday, with Russell Wilson (seven for 29 yards), Robert Turbin (6-27) and Percy Harvin (4-41) accounting for the rest.

Lynch will "let it rip" in Thursday's season opener against the Packers, coach Pete Carroll told USA Today.

"He's ready to go," Carroll said. "We're really excited about cutting him loose. The shot we gave him in game three (of the preseason Aug. 22 against Chicago), he looked exactly on point. He hasn't missed a snap or practice, hasn't missed anything." Lynch held out the first week of training camp but had a routine preseason after returning to practice.

Lynch played just one possession, making what might be his only appearance of the preseason. His role is still safe, and the Seahawks should have better injury luck on the offensive line this year.

Lynch could play Friday against the Chargers in Seattle's second exhibition game, the Seattle Times reports.

Lynch was brought along slowly last week after holding out the first week or so of training camp, but coach Pete Carroll said Lynch looks like he's "in great shape." "He's getting a lot closer," Carroll said. "He had a very good practice [Sunday]. We're just trying to do it properly. I really liked the way he got after it. He got stuff in all phases of the practice. Caught some balls well, blocked well, ran the ball real nice ... This is really, I think, the first week he has a chance to really compete and he brought a great attitude."
