Seahawks RB Lynch’s status uncertain


The Sports Xchange

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch missed Monday’s game against the Detroit Lions with a hamstring injury, and it remains uncertain whether he will be able to play in Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals either.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said on Wednesday that Lynch’s status is still day-to-day, and that the team will not be able to gauge Lynch’s availability until later in the week.

Carroll hopes running back Fred Jackson will be able to play despite a high-ankle sprain suffered on Monday.

If Lynch and Jackson are both out, rookie Thomas Rawls probably would get most of the snaps at running back. He rushed for 48 yards on 17 carries against the Lions.
