Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch ACTIVE

Marshawn Lynch expected to play
Sunday, September 9, 2012, 10:04am
The Seahawks expect running back Marshawn Lynch to play against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, though Seattle will be mindful of the workload it gives him due to the back spasms that limited him in practice this week.
Rookie RB Robert Turbin would get the start at running back if Lynch can't play and will likely receive some extra work regardless. Lynch is a risky start with the back issue, but the matchup is good.

Per a league source with knowledge of the situation, Lynch will play despite back spams “unless something crazy happens.”
We still recommend that Lynch owners watch the afternoon inactives and have Robert Turbin at the ready, if possible. Reports like this are encouraging, but hardly infallible.
Marshawn Lynch returns to limited practice

Coach Pete Carroll warned that people shouldn’t be hasty to dismiss a return of RB Marshawn Lynch this week, as his balky back would be evaluated on a daily basis. Thursday, Lynch was eased back into practice in preparation for the season opener Sunday at Arizona.
On Wednesday, Lynch said he was confident he could play at Arizona, although he questioned how much he’d be needed. As well as the Seahawks defense had been playing, he joked, the offense might not have to produce very much.
Marshawn Lynch (back) iffy for Week 1

Robert Turbin would likely get the most touches with Lynch sidelined. He will be drafted in most leagues, but if he's available on the waiver wire is worth a pickup in most cases.

Seattle rookie RB Robert Turbin has gotten more attention as the projected backup.
Thursday, July 26, 2012, 10:34am
When Seattle drafted Utah State product Robert Turbin in the fourth round of this year’s draft, the team did not expect him to start the season opener on Sept. 9 at Arizona.
But with Seattle’s best offensive player, Marshawn Lynch, recently arrested and charged with drunken driving in his hometown of Oakland, Turbin could be pressed into service sooner rather than later.
But unlike last season, when the Seahawks depended on lighter backs such as Justin Forsett and Leon Washington to shoulder the load when Lynch was out – which likely cost them a win at Cleveland – at 5-10 and 222 pounds Turbin can mimic Lynch’s bruising running style.
Another arrest, this time Seattle RB Marshawn Lynch

Seahawk RB Marshawn Lynch was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence Saturday and taken to Santa Rita Jail, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Lynch, 26, was arrested after a traffic stop on Interstate 880 in Oakland, according to CHP spokesman Hector Baiza. Lynch was taken to Santa Rita Jail, where he was cited and released.
Lynch was suspended for 3 games back in 2009 for personal conduct violations after his second run-in with the law, so we'll be sure to keep an eye on this as it unfolds. A suspension is certainly a possibility. If Lynch were to miss games, Leon Washington and rookie Robert Turbin would likely carry the load.
