Report: Seahawks bringing back Bryce Brown

The Seahawks dropped running back Bryce Brown from their roster on Saturday so they could add linebacker Eric Pinkins as depth with Bruce Irvin set to miss their game against the 49ers.

At the time the move was made, the Seahawks expected to have Marshawn Lynch in the lineup on Sunday but things didn’t play out that way. Lynch missed the game and traveled to Philadelphia on Monday to meet with sports hernia specialist Dr. William Meyers to learn if he needs surgery to repair his abdominal injury.

The results of that meeting aren’t known, but coach Pete Carroll has said that Lynch is unlikely to play this week under any circumstances. That leaves Seattle in need of some help at running back and they’re looking back in Brown’s direction.

Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that Brown will be re-signed. There’s no word on a corresponding move.

Brown originally signed with the Seahawks about a month ago, but has not been active for any games.
