Marshawn Lynch dealt with late game back issue

ESPN - [Full Article]

Some people noticed that Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch left the field before the game ended Sunday at San Diego, which brought a lot of speculation on Twitter about Lynch’s attitude.

Not waiting to leave the field with your teammates when time expires is considered poor sportsmanship by many people, but Seahawks coach Pete Carroll made it clear that thought is wrong in this case.

“No, he went off with the doctors,’’ Carroll said. “His back had tightened up, or something like that, so I wasn’t worried about that.”

“It’s an ongoing issue for him for years,” Carroll added. “It’s something we’re always monitoring.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Lynch has suffered from back spasms in the past, the story said. It was also 118 degrees on the field Sunday. The story also said Lynch could be limited in practice this week so it's something to monitor. But the piece also pointed out that’s typical for in-season practice sessions for Lynch, making sure he’s 100 percent on Sunday.
