Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was a reluctant participant in Wednesday’s media session, saying that he only showed up to the session to avoid getting fined.
That limited participation was more than he did at the team’s practice later in the day. There’s no specific injury concern for Lynch, who has been sitting out Wednesday practices fairly often this season and coach Pete Carroll said Lynch would be ready to play after sitting out practice all last week. Based on his production on the field, the extra rest has served Lynch well.
Everyone else practiced fully for the Seahawks on Wednesday, their first full practice of the week. Several players said Wednesday morning that they were looking forward to returning to the routine of the practice schedule after a busy first few days in New Jersey and New York.
The only three players who merited inclusion on the first injury report of Super Bowl week were wide receiver Doug Baldwin (hip), wide receiver Percy Harvin (concussion) and defensive tackle Brandon Mebane (ankle).
