Pete Carroll on Marshawn Lynch: "He's very close, but we can't guarantee that he can make it through the game, so that means we'd get set back again. We're just going to wait it out and see if we can get him right next week." The Seahawks could make a roster move to add RB depth before Sunday. One option is Rod Smith, who is on the practice squad.

The Seahawks have ruled RB Marshawn Lynch out for Sunday's game against the Bengals with a hamstring injury. The move comes as a bit of a surprise considering Lynch was a limited practice participant Thursday. It's the first time since Lynch joined the Seahawks that he'll miss back to back games. Expect Thomas Rawls to carry the load against Cincinnati.


Marshawn Lynch to miss 2nd straight game

A hamstring injury will keep the Seahawks' star RB out of Sunday's game against the Bengals. Lynch also missed Monday night's game against the Lions.

The Seahawks revised their initial injury report to show RB Marshawn Lynch as a limited participant. He was originally listed as a non-participant. Sounds like some progress is being made.

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) once again did not practice Thursday. Pete Carroll made it sound like he could be a gametime decision. The Seahawks don't have a rushing touchdown on the season, and the Bengals are the only team that hasn't allowed one.
