While the big news up in Seattle is that rookie Russell Wilson won the starting quarterback competition, the Seahawks do have some players they'd like to get back on the field as soon as possible. One is running back Marshawn Lynch, who is dealing with a back problem and was held out of Friday's win over the Kansas City Chiefs.
An arm injury -- a muscle inflammation, the Seattle Times reports -- kept Matt Flynn, the guy the Seahawks brought in to be the starting quarterback in the offseason, from making his case for the job over Wilson Friday. It's a tough break for Flynn, who is expected to be able to play when the regular season starts.
Other players dealing with injuries: CB Walter Thurmond (leg), LB Allen Bradford (hip), LB Matt McCoy (knee), LB Malcolm Smith (hamstring), G John Moffitt (elbow), OL James Carpenter (knee), WR Doug Baldwin (hamstring) and DL Jason Jones (knee). Thurmond and Carpenter are on the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list.
