Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch can still deliver a wallop.

Lynch, who may have played his last game in a Seahawks uniform in Sunday’s loss to the Panthers, was involved in a collision with Panthers safety Roman Harper that left a crack in Harper’s helmet. Harper posted an Instagram video showing off the crack and saying that it came from a collision with Lynch.

“Beast Mode is still alive,” Harper says on the video.

Lynch had a disappointing, injury-plagued season that ended with just 20 yards on six carries yesterday. He will turn 30 in April and isn’t expected back in Seattle in 2016. But Harper will attest that he still runs hard. And the Panthers’ equipment staff may want to take a thorough look at their helmets, which aren’t supposed to crack no matter how hard a hit they take.
