Garafolo: Banged-up Lynch expected to play Sunday vs Chiefs

BY foxsports • November 16, 2014

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is expected to play Sunday versus the Kansas City Chiefs, FOX Sports 1 Insider Mike Garafolo reports.

A week after rushing for 140 yards and four touchdowns against the New York Giants, Lynch was held out of practice until Friday with calf and rib injuries.

''He's just banged up,'' coach Pete Carroll said. ''In years past we've always given him a lot of consideration to get him right and he's worked hard to make sure he stays abreast of what he can do, and he practiced well today.''

Lynch was a full participant in Friday's practice. He frequently gets one or two days of rest during the week and still typically is in the lineup for games. He's missed just one game due to injury in his five years with the Seahawks.
