When Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was asked about running back Marshawn Lynch’s absence from OTAs last week, he said that the Seahawks “miss him and we’d like him to be here.”

The Seahawks don’t have to miss Lynch any longer. The team tweeted out a picture from Tuesday’s workout to highlight socks featuring the Seattle skyline worn by wide receiver Doug Baldwin, but the photo also featured a shot of Lynch, who had been the only healthy Seahawk not taking part in OTAs, heading toward the field with his teammate.

There never was much concern that Lynch was going to miss any mandatory work this year and there was no sign that Carroll’s desire to have Lynch at the facility came with any rancor about his absence. Carroll said Lynch was engaged in a “very intense” workout program while Robert Turbin and Christine Michael took care of the reps with the offense in Seattle.

Lynch should be taking over the lion’s share of those reps now that he’s back with the rest of the gang and the Seahawks are free to continue the rest of their offseason work with all hands on deck.
