Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch left the sidelines early with still over a minute to play in Seattle’s 30-21 loss to the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.
Head coach Pete Carroll said Monday the reason for Lynch’s early departure was due to a sore back that tightened up late in the game.
“It’s an ongoing issue for him for years,” Carroll said. “It’s something we’re always monitoring.”
Lynch did not practice with the Seahawks on Wednesday due to his back issue.
Lynch should be fine to face the Broncos, but this is something to monitor this week. Robert Turbin is the proper handcuff for Lynch at this point.

Week 2: Lynch vs Chargers
For people who thought Marshawn Lynch would be anything less than a 'Beast', they just had to look at Week 1. Lynch's carries weren't cut back (20), and he reached the end zone twice which means he is still the man in the red zone. More important, the Seahawks love running in between the tackles and that is where Lynch excels.
The Chargers run defense is average, but they are expected to target Lynch as the key to stopping the Seahawks so expect some tough yards early for Lynch. Nonetheless, Lynch is one of the top 5 backs for Week 2 after being the top back in Week 1. Start Lynch in all leagues and all formats.
