Marshawn Lynch will play, despite knee injury

AP

Eyebrows were raised when Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch missed practice on Wednesday with a knee injury.

The eyebrows can now return to their normal position.  Per a league source, Lynch will play on Sunday.

With the Bucs coming to town, the Seahawks don’t necessarily need Lynch on Sunday.  Then again, a sputtering passing game will only get worse if Lynch isn’t available to keep opposing defenses honest.

Lynch has 601 yards rushing in eight 2013 games, with seven total touchdowns.  He’s averaging 4.1 yards per carry.

  1. I hope Lynch doesn’t blow this team over his desire to get carry the ball more.

    He’s been seen flagging the finger at his coaches during games, he doesn’t get the ball in critical red zone plays and he watches Russell Wilson get tackled behind the lines, Carroll had to have a sit-down with Lynch on the plane home from St. Louis.

    How do they keep Lynch healthy and happy?

    The coaches had better figure this one out, because everyone in Seattle wants to see Lynch pounding the line and the Seahawks get to the Super Bowl.

  2. If he is banged up I would rather he sit out and heal. We are playing Tampa Bay, and they look like they are trying really hard to tank the season. I would like to see healthy players when we host the Saints and head to the “City of HAAAAY.”

  3. So why exactly did we use a 2nd round pick this past draft on a RB that has been active for 1 game? I understand he’s our RB of the future possibly, but we couldn’t have drafted an OT or G better than what we have now?

    Great front office, but I don’t get it.

  4. “This is how Revis and RG3 got hurt last year. Don’t do it Lynch.”

    What are you on about? Revis tore his knee ligament and never saw the field again last season. He was never injured and trying to play on.

  5. This is how Revis and RG3 got hurt last year. Don’t do it Lynch.

    Uh, what? Acls can go at any time, banged up or not, and with or without contact?

  6. Lynch spends more weeks on the injury report than off it. More normal for him than a lot of backs. He’s healthy. If I’m wrong or even if I’m right, it isn’t a bad idea to give Turbin and Michael the ball on Sunday. We’ve yet to really see what Michael can do in the reg season.

    he went to Oakland HS…in the Bay Area…..do research before calling people numbnuts

  10. Did anyone hear the audio of Marshawn thinking when he was drafted by Buffalo that he was thinking….New York City?! Yikes! Good thing this guy IS a beast with a ball because knowing a map sure wasn’t his forte’.

  11. Absolutely love Beast Mode! That having been said, it would be interesting to see C.Michael as the featured back this Sunday…
    and it might be worth looking at Lynch-Michael as a one – two punch…Seems to me that the contrast between these two is much more pronounced than Lynch- Turbin would be… Just a thought….

    Not hard to see why, most people would rather work for a Carroll’s style of management over Harbaugh’s. Both contenders just different working conditions.

  13. just like last week, Seattle must guard against looking for a cake walk. These are professional men playing at a professional level with pride. Seahawks should blow TB away…and early…but they’d best do so quickly and not let the Yucks hang around.

    Lynch is the Mike Tyson of football…lol

    “My style is impetuous, my defense is impregnable…”

    I could totally see the Beast say something like that.

  15. They should be running him more with the way the o-line has played. You always hear linemen prefer to run block and he’s a great back
