Lynch's contract is for this season only - Week 17 against the San Francisco 49ers and the postseason, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. The team signed Turbin earlier on Monday. From a fantasy perspective, Homer should get most of the work in this committee as both Lynch and Turbin are stepping into a tough Week 17 matchup vs. the 49ers.
The team is also scheduled to work out Turbin. Right now, Homer is the lone healthy back on the team and should get a chance to carry the load, but it's in a tough Week 17 matchup against the 49ers. The word is the Seahawks plan to sign two RBs and it's likely they jump right into playing time.
The Seahawks fear that running back Chris Carson suffered a season-ending hip injury Sunday, a massive blow as they head into next week's NFC West showdown with the San Francisco 49ers and then the playoffs.
Carson was injured in the second quarter of a 27-13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in which the Seahawks also lost his backup, C.J. Prosise, to a season-ending broken arm.
Homer is now the lone healthy back on the team and is expected to get a feature role going forward. The team will have to make a move for an RB who will likely get snaps as well. Homer is a rookie sixth round pick who had just two carries entering Sunday.
