Marshawn Lynch RB SEA 21 Hrs1 Comment
Lynch (non-injury) didn't partake in practice Wednesday, the Seahawks' official site reports.
Owners have little to worry about, as the Seahawks hold Lynch on the sideline during the first practice of each week. Although he represents one of the NFL's standout running backs, he hasn't topped 100 yards rushing since Week 1, which is a direct result of Russell Wilson's prowess as a runner. In the last three contests, Lynch's output has thus suffered, with an average of 15 carries for 62 yards per game, while totaling eight receptions (on 10 targets) for 64 yards and a touchdown catch. Expect him to make his presence felt in drills in short order.

Lynch had 18 carries for 53 rushing yards and two catches on two targets for 18 receiving yards Sunday against the Rams.
The trade of wideout Percy Harvin to the Jets this week was supposed to give Lynch a bigger piece of the offensive workload, and while his 18 carries were his highest total since Week 3 (and third-highest total of the season), he failed to break 75 rushing yards for the third straight game. Lynch had five touchdowns in the first three weeks of the season, but just one since then as Seattle has now lost back-to-back games. The good news is that the Seahawks will travel to Charlotte next week to face a Panthers defense that is allowing 140.2 rushing yards per game this season, the fifth-worst mark in the NFL.

Lynch (non-injury) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams.
Lynch was reportedly not happy about the team trading Percy Harvin to the Jets this week, but he stands to be a beneficiary of the move, as the Seahawks get back to centering the offense around their running game. He was only on the injury report after being held out Wednesday, though it was for non-injury reasons, but he was a full participant Thursday and Friday and looks poised to bounce back after a 62-yard performance in Week 6 against the Cowboys.

Lynch (non-injury) is probable for Sunday's game against St. Louis.
Lynch's game against Dallas was disappointing, but the fact that he averaged 6.1 yards per carry leaves the fault of his 61-yard showing solely at the feet of Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. Playing against a St. Louis squad struggling against the run, Lynch should bounce back in a decisive fashion this week.

Lynch (non-injury) returned to practice Thursday, the Seahawks' official site reports.
As is customary, the veteran rested Wednesday before returning to the practice field Thursday. He's coming off his worst fantasy performance of the season, but a chance to run wild against the Rams' 26th-ranked run defense Sunday should help him right the ship.

Lynch (non-injury) didn't practice Wednesday.
Lynch and the Seahawks' offense had the tables turned on them in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, who gobbled up almost 38 minutes of possession. As a result, he put together his worst fantasy performance of the season (10 carries for 61 yards and one reception for one yard). On a positive note, the Seahawks didn't have to strain their workhorse, and they extended that respite into Wednesday's practice. Expect his presence at drills before the end of the week.

Lynch (non-injury) had 10 carries for 61 yards in Sunday's 30-23 loss to Dallas.
The Cowboys held the ball for nearly 38 minutes, so Lynch never really had an opportunity to get into a groove. Other than a 32-yard run, he was held in check though. He had been dealing with some back soreness recently, but that was not a factor Sunday. As long as he's healthy, he'll continue to shoulder most of the load for Seattle's rushing attack. Next week, he'll look to redeem himself at St. Louis, which held him to a season-low 23 yards in the Edwards Jones Dome last year.

As expected, Lynch is ready to roll at home against a Dallas defense that got crushed by Arian Foster last week.

Lynch's Wednesday practice absence was strictly for rest, as always. He's at full strength and he's poised for a strong effort at home against a Dallas defense that's lacking both talent and health.

Lynch (non-injury) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.
With no ailment to ponder over, Lynch can focus on blazing a trail Sunday against a Cowboys defense that has allowed 5.6 YPC and three total touchdowns to opposing backs through five contests.
