Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen, out) was ruled out for Week 12. Thomas Rawls will start for the next month or so.

Marshawn Lynch to be out 'about a month' after sports hernia surgery

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is set to have surgery on his sports hernia tomorrow morning, source said. Expected to be out about a month.

Fantasy Impact:

This effectively knocks Lynch out for the rest of the fantasy season, though we would hold for now until the dust settles. If he misses four weeks, he could be back in Week 16 for a matchup with the Rams, but the Seahawks will likely play it safe if the team is in the playoff hunt so they can have a healthy Lynch for the postseason. Thomas Rawls is a top 10 back for the remainder of the season.

Marshawn Lynch may not play vs. Steelers

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch traveled to Philadelphia on Monday to see a specialist about his abdomen injury, and it’s possible that he will have surgery before returning to Seattle, coach Pete Carroll said.

"I don’t know that about the surgery," Carroll said. "It could happen. I don’t know that. It’s a possibility. But it was to go back there for the evaluation to find out what’s next, and there are a couple choices possibly depending on what the doc feels is necessary, and then we’ll just wait and see what that all means."

If Lynch were to undergo sports hernia surgery, he likely would be out for an extended period of time.

Carroll was asked whether there’s any scenario where Lynch would be back for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"I don’t know about that now," he said. "It’s legitimately bothering him. He would have played yesterday if he could have, so I don’t know that."

Fantasy Impact:

Lynch suffered the injury in practice before the Seahawks’ Week 10 game against the Arizona Cardinals. He started and played 79 percent of the team’s snaps. But Carroll said the injury started to bother him late in the game. Thomas Rawls is a must-get if still on wires. It's a fluid situation right now, but it's very possibly Lynch is going to miss some time with this injury.

Report: Marshawn Lynch (sports hernia) could miss rest of season

Monday, November 23, 2015, 9:29am

USA Today - [Full Article]

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch could be forced to sit the rest of the season with a sports hernia, according to one published report on Monday.

Lynch was in street clothes on the sidelines for Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers. After the Seahawks’ 29-13 victory, Seattle coach Pete Carroll told reporters that Lynch would travel to Philadelphia to get an abdominal injury checked out by Dr. William Meyers, a surgeon who specialized in sports hernias.

While Carroll said the exact determination of Lynch’s injury hadn’t been determined, the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Monday morning that it’s believed Lynch has a sports hernia. If Meyers confirms the diagnosis, Lynch would have surgery and be lost for the season.

Fantasy Impact:

Apparently Lynch played through the injury back in Week 10 with a questionable status, which popped up on the injury report late in the week. He was questionable again leading up to Week 11's game before sitting out, so this report certainly seems to have some weight behind it. Thomas Rawls would fill in if Lynch misses any time and is a must-get if still on waiver wires.

Fantasy Impact:

Lynch (abdomen) was questionable coming into this contest, much like last week, but it out for Week 11. Some speculate he may have a sports hernia injury but that remains to be seen. Thomas Rawls turns into a great play in place of Lynch this week against the 49ers.

Friday, November 20, 2015, 6:29pm

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen, questionable) missed practice again Thursday and is questionable for Week 11. There are rumblings that Lynch may have a sports hernia, but he played through he questionable tag last week and has a nice matchup against the 49ers. Seattle plays late, of course. Thomas Rawls is an ideal Plan B.

Thursday, November 19, 2015, 5:53pm

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) did not practice Wednesday. Lynch played through the injury last week, but only saw eight carries for 42 yards and a touchdown. The Seahawks trailed for most of Week 10’s game against Arizona. That probably won’t be the case against the 49ers.

Seahawks think Marshawn Lynch (abdominal injury) will play

Saturday, November 14, 2015, 2:12pm

Seattle Times - [Full Article]

While the Seattle Seahawks listed running back Marshawn Lynch as questionable for Sunday’s game against Arizona with an abdominal injury, coach Pete Carroll said after Friday’s practice he thinks Lynch will be able to play in what is a key NFC West showdown against the Cardinals.

“We think so,” Carroll said. “He thinks he’s okay. Think it’s something he’s had before so we treated him all day just to make sure we take care of him.”

Fantasy Impact:

Carroll said Lynch felt something in his abdomen late in Thursday’s practice and “didn’t think it was anything” initially. He said Lynch still felt the pain in his abdomen when he showed up on Friday so he was held out of practice. Since it's a Sunday night game, Thomas Rawls is a nice backup plan, especially for Lynch owners, just in case Lynch is unable to go.

Friday, November 13, 2015, 6:45pm

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (not injury related, questionable) missed Friday practice after returning to a full practice on Thursday, and is questionable for Week 10. Lynch popped up on the injury late in the week. The questionable tag and the SNF kickoff makes this a little dicey, but Lynch generally plays through any questionable tags. Thomas Rawls would pick up the slack if Lynch can’t go. Hopefully we’ll get more clarity as the weekend wears on.

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (not injury related) did not practice Wednesday. Lynch typically gets rest early in the week.

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hamstring, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 8. Lynch is good to go.

Thursday, October 29, 2015, 6:14pm

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. This is probably just a maintenance day for Lynch. He was full participation last week, but the Seahawks played on Thursday.

The Seahawks' backfield is slowly turning into Bills West.

After signing Buffalo legend Fred Jackson before the season, Seattle signed running back Bryce Brown on Tuesday.

Brown was let go by the Bills following Week 1 and had gone unclaimed until this week. Jackson has underperformed as a third-string back for the Seahawks (54 yards in seven games), while Thomas Rawls (65 carries, 366 yards) has taken meaningful carries away from the oft-injured Marshawn Lynch.

Fantasy Impact:

The story said Brown's signing could spell the end of the line for Jackson in the Emerald City, who was involved in a single-car crash last week outside the Seahawks' facility, but it is more likely an indication that Pete Carroll is stocking up on insurance for Beast Mode. Brown's downfall is his history of fumbling problems with the Bills and Eagles.

TNF Injury Report: Seahawks vs. 49ers

Seattle Seahawks

CB Marcus Burley (hand), RB Derrick Coleman (concussion), DT Jordan Hill (quadricep), C Patrick Lewis (ankle), LB Nick Moody (ankle)

DE Demarcus Dobbs (shoulder)

DE Cliff Avril (ankle), G Justin Britt (hip), S Kam Chancellor (shoulder), DE Frank Clark (hamstring), T Garry Gilliam (ankle), WR Tyler Lockett (hip), RB Marshawn Lynch (hamstring), CB Richard Sherman (ankle), CB Tye Smith (hip), LB Bobby Wagner (pectoral)

San Francisco 49ers

WR Anquan Boldin (hamstring), RB Carlos Hyde (foot), T Erik Pears (back)

G Alex Boone (shoulder), LB Navorro Bowman (shoulder), LB Ahmad Brooks (shoulder), RB Reggie Bush (calf), TE Vernon Davis (knee), WR Bruce Ellington (calf), TE Vance McDonald (chest), S Eric Reid (chest), T Joe Staley (knee), G Brandon Thomas (ankle)

Fantasy Impact:

Marshawn Lynch is probable, so we expect another big workload. Anquan Boldin and Carlos Hyde are both iffy. Given the matchup against a tough Seattle defense, we recommend shying away from both players if possible. It looks like Reggie Bush will make his return, though he has been unable to stay healthy for very long this year.

Report: Fred Jackson wrecks car in drag race

Tuesday, October 20, 2015, 9:02pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

TMZ was first to report that a drag race outside the Seahawks’ training facility between running backs Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch ended with Jackson wrecking his Corvette, first into a planter box and then into a stop sign.

There’s proof of that, too. That stop sign is at the corner of Seahawks Way and Lake Washington Boulevard, not far from the facility.

TMZ cited a witness who said Jackson and Lynch were racing as they left practice. After Jackson wrecked, teammates including Richard Sherman and team staffers reportedly came to his aid.

Fantasy Impact:

TMZ reports Jackson was taken back to the Seahawks facility but there is no word on whether or not he was injured.
