Report: Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch plans to retire

ESPN - [Full Article]

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has told people close to him he plans to retire, according to league sources.

As unpredictable as some of these decisions can be for many players, it is even more so for the ultra-unpredictable Lynch. But as of now, despite the fact that his teammates still are attempting to change his mind, Lynch's plan is to walk away from the game, something that he has shared with some in the Seahawks' organization.

Fantasy Impact:

If Lynch hangs 'em up, Thomas Rawls is first in line for workhorse back duties given his performance in 2015. In the six games in which Rawls played and Lynch did not, the rookie averaged 20.5 touches for 120 yards and 0.84 touchdowns (on a stellar 5.6 YPC). That doesn't even include Week 3, when he turned 16 carries into 104 yards while Lynch was limited to five carries. A fractured ankle ended his season, but it didn't require surgery and he should be ready to for training camp. If he's fully healthy and Lynch is out of the way, Rawls' ADP should climb into the 3rd round.

In a surprise move, the Seattle Seahawks have downgraded running back Marshawn Lynch to out for Sunday's NFC wild-card playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Lynch has not played in a game since Nov. 15, and he underwent abdominal surgery Nov. 25. He had been rehabbing in San Francisco but rejoined the team for workouts and practices this week.

But following the team's final workout at its practice facility Friday, the Seahawks said, Lynch notified them that he could not play Sunday. He did not travel with the team to Minneapolis later in the day.

According to a source, Lynch did not suffer any kind of setback with his injury during Friday's practice.

Marshawn Lynch returned to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, and Pete Carroll said he anticipates the running back will start against the Minnesota Vikings in the wild-card game this weekend.

"He's ready to go," Carroll said. "He's in the program, going, working, and he's going to keep doing his workouts here with us today and tomorrow. And Wednesday, we're going to practice and see how he feels and how far he can take it. He's worked out in incredibly competitive situations. He, physically, should be ready to go, but now we've got to translate it into football and directly to us."

Is Beast Mode ready to return in Seattle?

Per NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, Marshawn Lynch could be returning to the Seahawks on Monday. Lynch has been working on a core muscle issue off site in San Francisco for the past month. He received surgery on Nov. 25 and has been largely underground ever since.

Per Rapoport, the only way Lynch would return to the Seahawks was if he was fully healthy. So Monday's development should mean that he's ready to roll.

Fantasy Impact:

There was an expectation for Lynch to return around the Week 17 finale against the Cardinals, but that did not materialize. Now, he has six days to prepare for a matchup against the Vikings in the playoffs, the story said.

Seahawks anticipate getting Marshawn Lynch back for playoffs

Saturday, January 2, 2016, 3:30pm

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is likely to return to practice Monday following the team’s Week 17 contest against the Arizona Cardinals, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

“I have an expectation of that,” Carroll said, via Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com. “Let me say I’m anticipating that.”

Fantasy Impact:

The running back has missed more than half the season dealing with an abdominal injury, among other nicks and bruises. He finally opted for surgery back in late November to fix the problem and is on his way back, provided things go according to plan.

Seahawks may not have Marshawn Lynch Week 17

Monday, December 28, 2015, 1:57pm

Seattle Post Intelligencer - [Full Article]

The Seattle Seahawks will face a tough test when they travel to Arizona to take on the Cardinals in the teams' regular season finale next Sunday, and they may have to take on the 13-2 Cards without running back Marshawn Lynch, strong safety Kam Chancellor and left tackle Russell Okung.

All three missed Sunday's 23-17 loss to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, and it's looking increasingly likely that all three may miss next week's game as well.

In his regular Monday appearance on the "Brock and Salk" show on 710 ESPN radio, head coach Pete Carroll told hosts Mike Salk and Brock Huard that Lynch's recovery from abdominal surgery remains a day-to-day proposition.

Fantasy Impact:

Carroll said Lynch was in Seattle over the weekend, but didn't elaborate on a Sunday report from NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, who reported that Lynch was expected to return to Seattle sometime this week to continue rehabbing at the team's facility after working out with MMA trainer Tareq Azim, the story said. Azim told Rapoport he has provided the Seahawks with "regular updates on Lynch," whom he said is making strides toward returning after undergoing the first surgery of his career.
