Marshawn Lynch says nothing about arrest

Published on July 30, 2012 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

Marshawn Lynch made national headlines earlier this month after being charged with driving under the influence of alcohol in his hometown of Oakland.

The enigmatic Seattle Seahawks running back was in uniform for the opening practice of training camp in Renton but did not talk to reporters.

Lynch released a statement through the team last week apologizing for the incident.

Lynch’s attorney said Lynch pleaded not guilty to the DUI charge last week. His next scheduled hearing is Sept. 27.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll said he has been in contact with the league but that he would not speak specifically about the situation.

“Marshawn and I have been on the topic since the first day of it,” Carroll said. “And we’ve had very good communication about it. There’s a process going on that we really can’t even talk about it. But I’m pleased with the way he’s worked with us, so we understand what’s going on.”

When asked about his initial reaction when finding out about the incident, Carroll said he was concerned and disappointed, but also appreciated the proactive way that Lynch handled the situation.

“I didn’t know the facts or anything about it,” Carroll said. “But we talked our way through it and understand it. And I was pleased with the way we interacted so that we could be on top of it.”

Carroll also said that he believes the team can lean on Turbin, this year’s fourth-round draft pick, should Lynch not be available to begin the regular season.

At 5 foot 10 and 222 pounds, Turbin ran for 1,517 yards and 19 touchdowns on 245 attempts his senior season for Utah State.

“There isn’t any question that he could be (the main running back),” Carroll said. “He had a bunch of carries in school, and if we needed him to play on a regular basis, he’s as physically fit as you could get. He’s used to pounding”
