The Seattle Seahawks are looking healthy. Real healthy.
Marshawn Lynch, the lone player on Wednesday's injury report, was limited in practice with a sore back, according to the News Tribune.
His back has been bothering him since week 1, but he managed to play through any pain in all 16 games, so there's no point in questioning his availability for their showdown with the Washignton Redskins. He'll be ready.
Lynch carried the ball 315 times for 1,590 yards and 11 touchdowns during the regular season. He's helped take a lot of pressure off of rookie QB Russell Wilson and was a key part in getting them to this point. The opposing coach for this weekend, Redskins' Mike Shanahan sums it up best when talking about Lynch.
“He’s always been one of my favorite players, because you just can’t tackle him,” Shanahan said during a conference-call interview. “He’s everything that you look for in a running back. I’ve watched film over a number of years and you’re mad that he’s not on your football team because he can do things most people can’t do.
“So I’ve always been a big fan of his.”
