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.
