Seattle hopeful to have Marshawn Lynch Week 5

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Seahawks played without running back Marshawn Lynch on Monday night because of a hamstring injury that the team hopes will not linger into Week Five.

Lynch was ruled out of the game on Sunday after initially being listed as questionable to play against the Lions, but Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said that Lynch still went through a pregame workout on Monday night. Carroll said that workout went well and left the team hopeful they’ll have Lynch back for their game against the 4-0 Bengals.

“He wasn’t quite right,” Carroll said, via the team’s website. “His best day was today. He ran pretty well in pregame, but they did not think he could sustain through the game and come out healthy again the next week. So we’re hoping that by using patience here, that he’ll be ready to go this next week.”

Fantasy Impact: 

If Lynch can’t play, the Seahawks may need to make a roster move before facing Cincinnati. Fred Jackson sprained his ankle during Monday’s 13-10 win, leaving Thomas Rawls as the only healthy running back on the active roster. Seattle has Rod Smith on the practice squad if they do need to bolster the group this week.
