Like the other big-name tailbacks who are officially questionable but who are expected to play on Sunday, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is questionable — and he’s expected to play.

Per a league source with knowledge of the situation, Lynch will play despite back spams “unless something crazy happens.”

The alternative to Lynch is rookie Robert Turbin, who looked good for the Seahawks in the preseason.  Whether they will have to rely on him against the Cardinals is something we’ll find out on Sunday afternoon.

    We need beast mode to play. Wilson needs a running game for his first start.

    I’m gonna be there, cant wait. It’s BEAST MODE time.

    He’s gonna make it rain skittles all over Tempe, AZ

    He is definitely a needed player on the field, however if he can’t go, Turbin is a great option. RW3 will be the only R(blank) 3 to have make the playoffs this year

    I still can’t believe I drafted a Seattle player

    Next week will be a great test for both the Cowboy’s and Seahawk’s run D.

    Looks like I can put him in my flex along with Arian Foster and Darren McFadden in my 12 man league. RBs + RGIII at QB = fantasy playoffs brother!

    Lynch and Turbin are looking like a stout combo at RB this year, Lumpkin did well in Tampa last year as well… Look out NFL, the Wilson led hawks are on the rise!

    I hate Skittles.

    Beast Mode had too many beers last night.

    I will be there as well! I love going to Glendale to see the Hawks destroy the cards!!
    Watching Wilson will be interesting but I have waited all summer to see this DEFENSE stomp and pillage the red birds! GO HAWKS!!

    Lynch is a great RB but I wouldn’t worry too much if he can’t play. Robert Turbin can flat out BALL and I hope he is a starter in this league one day. Google his story, he is an inspiration.

  16. greatminnesotasportsmind says: Sep 9, 2012 2:32 AM

    Fluke, can’t wait to see Turbin as the number 1 back

  17. competitivecompetitioncompeter says: Sep 9, 2012 3:06 AM

    Yeah. It’s an NFL tradition to blitz the everloving bleep out of a rookie QB his first start. Smart, too, even if he’s a guy who can make plays with his legs when the pocket breaks down, as long as they’re zone-blitzes, not man-. A couple of surprise Beastmode gashes up the middle will force the Cards off their game plan.

    Of course, this’ll all be moot after Skelton and Kolb combine for 6 turnovers in the first half.

    Glad to here Lynch is feeling better…Still think they should start Turbin, and save Lynch for Dallas.
    Go Hawks!

  19. djspman says: Sep 9, 2012 6:20 AM

    M Lynch AKA “Beast Mode”, Will need to play both offense and Defense to win this game. The Cards have a really good team this year. Probably the best in the NFL. hahahahahaha. The Seahawks could win this game with their back ups.

  20. arizonasdj says: Sep 9, 2012 6:59 AM

    And the cards are gonna shut him down! BIRDGANG!

  21. joetoronto says: Sep 9, 2012 7:50 AM

    If anything ever happened in Seattle, would anybody notice?
