According to Eric D. Williams of the Tacoma News, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is preparing as if he’ll play in Sunday’s season opener.
Lynch has been has missed most of the preseason due to tightness in his back, but he seems determined to get on the field this week.
“Despite reports that he might not play in the Seattle Seahawks’ season-opening game Sunday at Arizona, Lynch said he’s preparing himself as if he will be available this weekend.
“Lynch has not practiced for the past two weeks, including Wednesday, because of back spasms, although he participated in the team’s morning walk-through,” wrote Williams
“I feel good,” Lynch said.. “It will be my body’s decision. But I’ve taken the appropriate steps to make sure that I don’t have to do something out of the ordinary to get ready.”
It looks like Lynch will likely be a game time decision. If he’s unable to start, rookie Robert Turbin will start in his place.
