Marshawn Lynch sits out practice with calf injury


One of the Seahawks’ key offensive players didn’t practice Thursday because of a newly disclosed injury.

Tailback Marshawn Lynch sat out the club’s second workout of the week with a calf ailment, the club announced on Twitter.

It’s not uncommon to see Lynch on the injury report, as it’s not unusual for him to be held out of the first workout of each week to rest. However, he typically practices fully the next day.

Lynch has played in all eight games for Seattle this season, rushing for 549 yards and five touchdowns on 132 carries and catching 22 passes for 223 yards and three TDs. He was on the injury report leading up to the Week Five win at Washington with a back ailment, and he didn’t start the contest as he warmed up, but he eventually entered the game and assumed his typical workload.

Robert Turbin and Christine Michael are Seattle’s reserve tailbacks. The club also has rookie Demitrius Bronson on the practice squad.
