Last season, the Seattle Seahawks weren’t considered much of a threat to come out of the NFC West or to make the NFL playoffs. The team was weak in many different areas with little hope for the future at many different positions.
Fortunately, the unexpected happened with veteran running back Marshawn Lynch breaking out with impressive performances week in and week out. Lynch’s impressive numbers wasn’t enough to propel the Seahawks back into the playoffs, but it was enough to turn some heads in Seattle with the potential of a bright future on the horizon.
Despite Lynch’s performances making him arguably one of the top 10 running backs in the league, the Seahawks might have to start the 2012 campaign without him. Lynch has been suffering from a sore back that has him listed as day-to-day for the Week 1 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.
After being held out of the last two preseason games for the Seahawks, Lynch’s status has been up in the air with the regular season opener right around the corner. Lynch has been dealing with back spasms over the past two weeks and has been limited in practice as a result.
It still remains uncertain moving forward whether or not Lynch will be good to go or given the green light for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals, but it would be safe to say that he’ll be out for Week 1.
If Lynch is a no-go for the showdown with the Cardinals, the next in line at running back will be Leon Washington followed by Robert Turbin and Kregg Lumpkin.
Last season, Lynch rushed for 1,204 yards and 12 touchdowns. Lynch was also a force in the passing game at times with 212 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns.
