Seahawks backup runners don't do much Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) The Seahawks backup runners didn't do much Week 14 against the Eagles.

Christine Michael turned in a solid performance, gaining 32 yards on six carries. He did not receive a target in the passing game. Robert Turbin gained just 7 yards on four carries, but did factor into the passing game. Turbin hauled in one pass for 14 yards. 

Both players will hope for more Week 15 against the 49ers. 


Seahawks' Robert Turbin scores lone TD in win vs. 49ers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Seahawks running back Robert Turbin caught both of his targets for 47 yards and a touchdown while adding eight rushing yards on four carries in his team's 19-3 win over the 49ers in Week 13.

Turbin grabbed a short pass to the left and was able to work his way towards the end zone and maintain his balance to score a 13-yard touchdown that put his team up 7-0 in the first quarter. The Seahawks would pile on two field goals before halftime in a game where the 49ers had virtually no answers for the Seattle defense. Turbin's touchdown was just his second of the season and his first since Week 2. He'll match up with the Eagles in Week 14.


Robert Turbin, Christine Michael do little for Seahawks


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Seahawks backup runners Robert Turbin and Christine Michael didn't do much Week 11 against the Chiefs.

Turbin gained 11 yards on four carries. Michael received one carry, but lost 2 yards on the play. Both players will take on the Cardinals Week 12.


Seahawks backups give glimpse of the future


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) The Seahawks backup running backs didn't get much more work than normal in Week 10 against the Giants, but both Christine Michael and Robert Turbin showed what they can do if given the chance.

The Giants had trouble slowing any of the Seahawks' runners down Sunday, and Michael gashed them for 71 yards on just four carries. Turbin was only slightly less effective, rushing for 32 yards on six carries, while starter Marshawn Lynch ran all over the Giants for four touchdowns and 140 yards on 21 carries.

Both Turbin and Michael have clear upside, but Lynch really doesn't seem to be going anywhere -- this season. As handcuffs, both players might have some value in yearly leagues, but there are mostly best left for keeper leagues at this point. 


Seahawks' Christine Michael, Robert Turbin get some work


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Seahawks running backs Christine Michael and Robert Turbin managed to get some work Week 10 against the Giants.

Michael and Turbin came on in relief of Marshawn Lynch, who was so effective that he got some rest early. Neither player disappointed. Michael received just four carries, but managed 71 yards. He helped set up the team's final touchdown of the day with a 45 yard run. Turbin carried six times, gaining 32 yards. 


Seahawks' Robert Turbin, Christine Michael get some work


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Turbin gained 35 yards on five carries. He also hauled in one ball for 14 yards. Michael received four carries, gaining 16 yards. He was not a factor in the passing game.

Both players will look for more Week 10 against the Giants. 


Seahawks' Christine Michael, Robert Turbin do little Week 8


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Seahawks backup runners Christine Michael and Robert Turbin did little Week 8 against the Panthers.

Michael was more productive on the ground, gaining 12 yards on four carries. He was not targeted in the passing game. Turbin only gained 10 yards on two carries, but did manage 32 receiving yards. 

Both players will look for more Week 9 against the Raiders.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The Seahawks will have their probable players Week 8 against the Panthers.

Seahawks injury report for Sunday designates seven as out


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) The lengthy injury report released by the Seahawks on Friday for the Sunday game at Carolina has only ruled-out players and probables.

There are no surprises in either designation. All those who are out did not practice this week. That group consists of fullback Derrick Coleman (foot), defensive tackle Jordan Hill (ankle), cornerback Byron Maxwell (calf), tight end Zach Miller (ankle), center Max Unger (foot), linebacker Bobby Wagner (toe) and wideout Bryan Walters (concussion).

The probables are defensive end Michael Bennett (toe), strong safety Kam Chancellor (ankle), cornerback Tharold Simon (ankle), running back Robert Turbin (shoulder) and tight end Luke Willson (groin).


Seahawks RB Robert Turbin to fill fullback role


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Seahawks running back Robert Turbin will continue to serve as the team's fullback after starting fullback Derrick Coleman broke a bone just before kickoff in Week 7, Pro Football Talk reports.

"I just want to win," Turbin said about his new role. "I want to help the team as much as I can. I’m a team guy. If they need me to take on the role for the next few weeks or whatever the case may be, than sure."

Seattle reportedly brought in free-agent fullback Greg Jones for a workout Tuesday but decided to roll with Turbin in the role. However, the team could choose to run fewer two-back formations while Coleman is out.

Robert Turbin racks up 81 yards in preseason game No. 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Seahawks running backs Robert Turbin showed some flashes of dominance during Friday's preseason game against the Chargers.

Even with Marshawn Lynch getting the starting nod, the backup running back saw plenty work with the first-team offense on the opening drive and scored on a 1-yard run. Thanks to a massive stiffarm, Turbin ripped a 47-yard run on the second series on offense. He took 12 handoffs for 81 yards and a touchdown, averaging 6.8 yards per attempt. He also caught one pass for a gain of 5 yards.

Robert Turbin, Christine Michael shoulder the load in preseason opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) With Marshawn Lynch sidelined, Seahawks running backs Robert Turbin and Christine Michael shouldered the load during Thursday's preseason opener against the Broncos in Denver.

Turbin got the start but didn't make much of an impact. He played two series with the first-team offense and finished with four carries for 5 yards. He also caught one pass for a gain of 3 yards.

Michael didn't get his first touch with the first-team offense until the start of the second quarter and scored on a 1-yard run on that same drive. He played into the first series of the third quarter and finished with seven carries for 16 yards and a touchdown. He also caught three passes for 12 yards.

Seahawks won't change philosphy if Marshawn Lynch doesn't show


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said the team won't change its run-first philosophy, regardless of how long Marshawn Lynch's holdout lasts. Seattle ran the ball a league-high 54.8 percent of the time last year.

"I think our plan has been pretty successful," Bevell told the Seattle Times. "We play great defense, we take great care of the football and we run the football, and that keeps us in games and allows us to exert our will on the opponent, that physical toughness that we like to do ... That’s our style and our philosophy and we are going to continue to do that."

Lynch's contract holdout isn't expected to last too long. In the meantime, Christine Michael and Robert Turbin are the team's top two backs.


Seahawks coordinator backtracks on committee comment


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2014) Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, who raised eyebrows by saying the team planned a committee approach at running back, backtracked from that comment. According to the Everett Herald, Bevell said he meant he'd use a committee approach during OTAs, not the season.

Marshawn Lynch still should see the bulk of the carries, but the explosive Christine Michael is headed for a bigger role. Robert Turbin will see some work on passing downs.


Marshawn Lynch still on top of committee


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/9/2014) Even though Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell recently said the team plans to use a "running back by committee" with Marshawn Lynch, Christine Michael and Robert Turbin, there is still one leader in the backfield.

And that's Lynch, reports the Seattle Times.

The report says there may be a committee this season, but "expect Lynch to be the Chairman of the Board." Michael will likely be second, and Turbin will be third and play on passing downs.


Robert Turbin vs. Christine Michael an intriguing battle


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2014) With Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch coming off 400-plus touches, an intriguing battle for the backup spot is shaping up between Robert Turbin and Christine Michael, reports the Seattle Times.

Turbin excels in pass protection and the team trusted him to spell Lynch down the stretch. He averaged 3.4 yards on 77 regular-season carries. 

A second-round pick last year, the more explosive Michael finished his rookie season with 79 yards on 18 carries. He'll push Turbin in training camp.

Robert Turbin to play a role in Super Bowl?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Seahawks backup running back Robert Turbin has only five carries and one catch in two playoff games, but offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell maintains Turbin is "a huge part of what we do."

"At some point in the game, Marshawn (Lynch) is going to get tired and he’s going to come out and we don’t feel like we miss a beat when Turbo gets to go in there," Bevell told the Seattle Times. "We like his size. We like his speed. We like his toughness and his willingness to stick it up in there. He does a great job for us in protection as well."

Turbin got 85 touches during the regular season. He averaged 3.4 yards per carry and caught eight balls for 60 yards.
