Marshawn Lynch injury “nothing to be alarmed by”

AP

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch got a late start to Sunday’s game and he made an early exit after hurting his hamstring, but coach Pete Carroll doesn’t sound terribly concerned about Lynch’s status for the future.

Lynch was listed as questionable for the game against the Bears because of a calf issue and coach Pete Carroll said he made a delayed entry to the game because he was “still going through the process of getting comfortable and getting ready to go” at the outset. Lynch eventually appeared with three minutes to go in the first quarter and ran the ball five times before exiting for good because of his hamstring.

“We’ve checked it all out, and there is nothing to be alarmed by, so we’ll just have to wait and see,” Carroll said, via the Seattle Times. “He tried to get out there and did a little bit of running and all but couldn’t answer it in the second half.”

Thomas Rawls ran for 104 yards on 16 carries in the 26-0 win to ease any pain that might have been caused by Lynch’s early departure from the proceedings. Lynch, who hasn’t missed a game since 2011, will get an extra day to rest before the Seahawks host the Lions on Monday night in Week Four.

  1. They need that line to improve and get him going.. Once he is on a roll he is like a freight train that cant be stopped only hoped to be contained.

    Although Rawls did an excellent job and looked fantastic out there that was only in the second half once the line looked like it started gelling a bit. Get Lynch those holes and he has 150+ yards.

    I like this combo Seattle has put together.. That line works like it did in the second for the rest of the season I see the bruising ground and pound in Seattle coming back.

  2. Exactly why Schneider and Carroll are keeping the Hawks relevant. Scouting and keeping undrafted players like Rawls on the roster because he beat out veterans where other teams promise a lot but don’t deliver. Veterans on those teams are assured a place to retire from.

  3. Given the other two RB’s? There is no reason to worry. If Marshawn can go, let him play but perhaps sparingly as I like this Rawls kid a lot. Let Marshawn come in to spell him or something at least until Beast is closer to 100%
