Report: Marshawn Lynch ’60-40 not playing’ on Monday night
This figure comes by way of Pro Football Talk, citing a source.
Should Lynch not be able to take the field, then it will likely fall to rookie running back Thomas Rawls to carry the load.
He took full advantage of his opportunity in Week 3, when it became clear Lynch’s hamstring injury was hindering him badly. Rawls rushed for 104 yards on 16 carries in relief and looked very much like he belongs in the NFL.
It’s a long season, and Seattle would be wise to let Lynch take a page out of the Buffalo Bills’ playbook by letting the veteran back rest up until he’s 100 percent healthy.
