Marshawn Lynch gets MRI on hamstring

AP

On Sunday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the team isn’t concerned about running back Marshawn Lynch’s injured hamstring. On Monday, Carroll said that the injury about which the team isn’t concerned required an MRI.

“He’s getting one today for sure on his hamstring,” Carroll told reporters.

The hamstring happened during a game that Lynch entered with a calf injury. Before he played, however, trainers were working on Lynch’s back. For now, the hamstring is the concern as a Monday night date with the Lions looms.

“We just got to wait and see, we’ve got a couple days here to figure it out, and usually he goes light on the Wednesday, which would be on Thursday this week, so he’s got some time to figure it out, and we really probably won’t know until Friday,” Carroll said. “The MRI will be important though when we get the results back from that.”

The good news is that Thomas Rawls, an undrafted free agent, had 104 yards rushing against the Bears on only 16 carries. Which means that maybe the Seahawks finally have found someone who can run the ball when Lynch can’t — good news for now and, if Lynch doesn’t return in 2016, for later.

  1. In my experience, a calf injury is a bear to heal, and a hammie is much worse.

    You can protect a calf injury to an extent but you end up hammering the Achilles. Hammies just SUCK.

    Maybe you should use some of the $632.48 you raised to pay Krafts monetary guilt admission fine for reading comprehension courses.

    LOL

    Poor Pats, admitted cheaters.

  3. I only read this so I won’t get fined

    Your user name is quite apt. That is exactly what the league office has all of you blind haters doing.

  4. Hey! Us Card fans LOVE fine wine….! Palmer, Fitz, Rucker, Old Guys Rule!!!

    It’s going to be a great game when we finally compete… We Love the Hawks and look forward to serving up some 49er pie for you all…. ;o)

  5. Don’t panic – “Lynch-limp” is when a skittle gets stuck in your shoe. Someone tell Carroll the MRI won’t catch it.

  6. Lynch is showing signs of disinterest in this franchise, and is sandbagging it…they need to find a way to move on from him without alienating their fair-weather fans. It will be best for both parties.

  7. Bad calf, bad hamstring… Explains his lack of production.

    Better hope Rawls doesn’t continue to roll, allowing Lynch time to get healthy.

    Defense is starting to get right.

    If the oline continues to improve you should all be nervous.

    With Jay Cutler playing, the bears are a bad team. With Jimmy Clausen? They’re the worst, any team could have put up 35 on them.

    As a Pats fan I understand you’re too busy holding bake sales to help Kraft with his mea culpa fine, but FYI…

    Neither Cutler or Clausen play on the Bears’ defense.

    Right, because he just restructured his contract for top dolla and got reunited with Fred Jackson to make another run at a title. Totally disinterested.
