Seahawks Vs. Cardinals Injury Report: Marshawn Lynch Expected To Play

With a rookie quarterback in Russell Wilson getting his first start, the Seattle Seahawks will look for balance from their running game, and the news early Sunday is that running back Marshawn Lynch will be available during the Seahawks opening game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Concerns had lingered about Lynch's back spasms along with the NFL's decision making in regards to Lynch's offseason DUI arrest — for which Lynch will not be suspended until the legal case has run its course, according to CBS Sports.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is also reporting that the Seahawks will be mindful of the touches they give their running back on Sunday against the Cardinals, as workload with back problems can be a major concern.

Last season, Lynch rushed for 1,204 yards and 12 touchdowns on 285 carries. The sixth-year running back also contributed 212 yards receiving and scored a touchdown through the air in 2011.
