by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Lynch took 26 handoffs for 88 yards and a touchdown, averaging 3.4 yards per carry. He was targeted five times and finished with three catches for 40 yards and a score. He has 234 yards and three touchdowns on the ground this season.

Marshawn Lynch's back tightened up


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Marshawn Lynch finds end zone despite limited work


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch didn't get a ton of work, but still managed to find the end zone.

Lynch received just six carries for 36 yards during the contest. He also had four receptions for 27 yards and a score. Lynch was hurt by the team's time of possession woes. Seattle held the ball just 17:45 minutes, while the Chargers had possession for 42:15. The other issue was that the Chargers were able to cap off their long drives with scores.

Those struggles led to the team going away from Lynch early in the contest. He did manage to show off his receiving skills a bat more, finding the end zone on a 14 yard strike from Russell Wilson.

Lynch will look to get more action Week 3 against the Broncos. 


Marshawn Lynch finds the end zone twice Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch ran in two scores Thursday against the Packers.

Lynch looked nearly unstoppable during the contest. He ran for 110 yards on 20 carries. In the second quarter, Lynch capped off a six-play, 70 yard drive with a nine yard score. He struck again in the fourth quarter from three yards out. 

The Seahawks utilized a lot of read-option and play-action plays, making the Green Bay defense account for multiple playmakers. When they got in close to the end zone, Lynch was typically the preferred option. While he’s not known for his pass catching, Lynch also caught one ball for 14 yards. Despite not playing much in the preseason, Lynch didn’t show any signs of rust.

Lynch will take on the Chargers Week 2.


Marshawn Lynch ready to roll Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is looking to get off to a good start Week 1 against the Packers.

Lynch had an abbreviated preseason, carrying the ball just three times for 16 yards. That’s probably not a bad thing considering his high workload over the past couple years. Lynch also had a brief holdout during the offseason, but reported to camp in shape, and should be ready to roll.

The Packers weren’t particularly strong against the run last season, giving up 19.18 Fantasy points per week to running backs. That was the eighth worst figure in the league. While the team tried to shore up things defensively during the offseason, the loss of B.J. Raji should make it easier for teams to gash the Packers up the middle. 

With that in mind, Lynch should be a strong start. The Seahawks modus operandi the past couple years has been the run game, and that probably won’t change now. There are concerns about Lynch’s workload and lack of preseason reps, but his pedigree and matchup make this a strong start Week 1. 


Marshawn Lynch finds the end zone in first preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch made his presence felt despite being limited to only one drive Friday night against the Bears in exhibition play.

Lynch took his first handoff for a gain of 3 yards. His second touch was a six yard dash and his third handoff resulted in a 7-yard touchdown run, capping off a seven-play scoring drive. He finished with three carries for 16 yards and a touchdown, averaging 5.3 yards per touch.

Marshawn Lynch set to rack up carries in preseason clash


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Pete Carroll said that "it's time" for featured back Marshawn Lynch to ramp up the reps. The result will be far more playing time Friday night against Chicago.

Carroll did not announce Thursday how long the starters would play, but did acknowledge that the third preseason game would be the one in which they play the most. They are likely to remain on the field into the third quarter, per the Everett Herald.

Lynch was in on just two plays in the last game without a carry. That is destined to change against the Bears.

"It's time for him to get some carries and get involved a little bit," Carroll said. "I could not be more pleased with the conditioning level that he's had, the consistency of practice and his preparation has been great. He'll be ready to go."

Pete Carroll: Marshawn Lynch dropped weight, in 'great shape'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch turned in a very good practice Sunday, with coach Pete Carroll saying afterward that Lynch is in "great shape" and "just as fit as he ever has been," reports ESPN.com. Lynch ran hard and looked "like the man who has been one of the NFL’s best running back the last three seasons," the report said.

"He’s getting a lot closer," Carroll said. "He had a very good practice [Sunday]. We’re just trying to do it properly. I really liked the way he got after it.

"He got stuff in all phases of the practice. He caught some balls well, blocked well and ran the ball real nice. So a really good first day. This is the first week he has a chance to really compete. He brought a great attitude [Sunday]."

Carroll said Lynch's weight is "way down" and that he won't need many preseason carries to get ready for the regular-season opener.


Marshawn Lynch 'needs a lot of work to get back'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"We're progressing him with his reps and each week we'll continue to amp him and see where we can get him to, and just take it one week at a time. He needs a lot of work to get back."

Lynch won't play in Thursday's preseason opener.


Marshawn Lynch will practice soon


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, who ended his contract holdout Thursday, did not practice Friday. Running backs coach Sherman Smith said Lynch has been cleared and will practice soon.

"We are looking for him getting out there and getting some reps," Smith told the Seattle Times. "I can’t wait to see it."

Lynch is unlikely to participate in Saturday's scrimmage, or to get much work in preseason games.

"Not much more than he’s gotten in the past," Smith said of the preseason. "Marshawn doesn’t do a lot of running in the preseason, so that’s the way it’s going to be. He comes back, nothing is going to change. Absolutely nothing."


Marshawn Lynch retools current contract, receives higher base salary


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

GM on Marshawn Lynch: 'Next man up'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Seahawks general manager John Schneider told the Seattle Times that everybody loves and respects running back Marshawn Lynch, but the team won't deviate from its longterm plan. Lynch is holding out because he's upset with his contract, which has two years remaining.

"We’re just going with our plan, and I know it’s cliché-ish but next man up," he said. "We’ve had a plan in place here for a number of years, and we can’t veer from that plan for one person because it’s the ultimate team sport."

Schneider said the plan involves making tough decisions.

"You make models two and three years out, and you have to stick to that and know that there’s going to be tough decisions along the way," he said. "We had to let guys like Red Bryant go, Chris Clemons, we weren’t able to sign Breno (Giacomini), Golden Tate. You have to be able to make those decisions along the way knowing you’ll be able to re-sign Michael Bennett and maybe there’s a free agent that comes in and fits in your bracket. It’s just one of those deals where you have to keep going about your business, and you can’t veer off of that.

"Around here we talk about what’s next, and the next person is up. That being said, last year we went through this with Brandon Browner. He had his deal, and (Byron Maxwell) got his opportunity. Hey, Marshawn Lynch is phenomenal. Phenomenal player and just a unique part of what we’ve had going on here. Two years ago we were able to redo his deal, and he was a big part of that foundation that we started here."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Lynch can be fined $30,000 for every day he misses, and the team could try to go after a portion of his signing bonus.
