Coach Pete Carroll said the team needs to see how Lynch responds to Friday's practice before making a determination whether he'll play. Lynch practiced on Thursday and Friday. If he can't go, rookie Robert Turbin would get the start at running back.
Seattle will be without wide receiver Golden Tate, who sprained his knee in the preseason finale against Oakland. Tate, defensive end Greg Scruggs and offensive lineman James Carpenter have all been ruled out for this week.
Backup quarterback Matt Flynn was limited in practice Thursday and Friday and is listed as probable. The Seahawks have been resting his sore elbow.
