Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is dealing with an abdominal injury and is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Asked if he thinks Lynch should be able to play, coach Pete Carroll said: “I think so, yeah. He thinks he’s OK.”
Lynch suffered the injury near the end of Thursday’s practice. He did not participate in Friday’s session.
“I guess he came off the field and felt something,” Carroll said. “He came in this morning and he felt a little something in his abdomen that just bothered him. I think it’s something he’s had before, something that bothered him. We treated him all day just to make sure we took care of him.”
After having missed just one game the previous four seasons, Lynch has been out twice already this year. A hamstring injury sidelined him in Weeks 4 and 5.
Lynch also dealt with a calf injury and a neck issue in September.
If he can’t play Sunday night, rookie Thomas Rawls will take his place. Rawls has started three games this season, averaging 5.4 yards per carry on 69 attempts.
