Marshawn Lynch RB SEA 39 Mins

Lynch (back) is probable for Sunday's game against St. Louis.

The Seahawks gave Lynch two days of rest this week, so he'll be fresh when Sunday comes around. He's playing at an extremely high level and is a top-grade RB1.

Lynch (back) was listed as a non-participant on Thursday's injury report, the Seahawks' official site reports.

For the second week in a row, Lynch missed the first two practices of the week, which can't be music to the ears of his owners. His ultimate Week 17 workload remains to be seen, but as the regular season concludes on Sunday night, he could lose out on reps to Robert Turbin and Christine Michael with the playoffs in mind.

Lynch (back) didn't take part in Wednesday's practice, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Lynch was limited to merely 10 carries in Week 16, as the first quarter was wiped out due to a stomach issue. Until his startling 79-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, he found little success on the ground but eventually racked up 113 yards and two scores. Expect precaution to reign in advance of Sunday's season finale, when a victory over the Rams will seal home-field advantage throughout the NFC side of the playoffs.

Lynch (back) ran for 113 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries in Sunday's 35-6 win over the Cardinals.

Lynch missed the first quarter while dealing with stomach problems, and he didn't find much room to run for most of the game, with the exception of a six-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He still fought for yards as hard as ever, and it finally paid off on an incredible 79-yard scoring run that essentially sealed the game in the fourth quarter. It was arguably the second-best play of Lynch's career, behind only the famous "Beast Quake" run from the 2010 playoffs. He answered any questions about his health, and he should be good to go next week against St. Louis as the Seahawks look to lock up the NFC West and No. 1 seed.

Lynch (back) is probable for Sunday's game against Arizona.

As has been the case all year, Lynch's missed practice time was for rest purposes rather than injury limitation. Even with a brutal matchup against a strong Arizona run defense, Lynch still carries RB1 status.

Lynch (back) was a non-participant in practice Wednesday, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Perhaps the Seahawks are affording Lynch additional rest with an imperative matchup at Arizona on tap, but the running back normally returns in some capacity immediately after sitting out the first practice of the week. Thus, his activity level Friday should be watched with a keen eye to ensure he's on track play in Week 16.

Lynch (back) was a non-participant in practice Wednesday, FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

Lynch is logging his typical absence to start the week, but worry not, as he'll likely work up to a full practice by Friday. Meanwhile, after a three-game hiatus from the end zone, Lynch has hit pay dirt in back-to-back outings, which has supplemented 44 carries for 177 yards and six receptions (on seven targets) for 34 yards.

Lynch (back) had 21 carries for 91 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-7 win over the 49ers. He caught just 1-of-2 targets for seven yards.

Lynch had a long run of only 15 yards, but still sported a healthy 4.3 average. His four-yard touchdown late in the third quarter was surprisingly easy against such a strong rush defense, as he practically walked into the end zone. He might have a tougher time next week, facing a Cardinals' defense that held him to just 39 yards on Nov. 23.

Lynch (back) is listed as active Sunday versus the 49ers.

Lynch has racked up at least 100 yards on the ground in five of his last seven matchups against San Francisco, with eight total touchdowns during that stretch. As a result, trust in the Seahawks' workhorse back to uphold his status as one of the most reliable RB options.
