While Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has yet to be ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, you can almost guarantee that he won’t be playing in that contest based on a few transactions that were made on Tuesday.
According to Tuesday’s list of official NFL transactions, the Seahawks signed running back Bryce Brown to their active 53-man roster in addition to signing running back DuJuan Harris to their practice squad.
This means that rookie undrafted free agent running back Thomas Rawls is almost certain to start Sunday against Steelers. Rawls rushed for 200 yards this past Sunday in the Seahawks win over the San Francisco 49ers. Additionally, veteran running back Fred Jackson is expected to back-up Rawls against the Steelers.
Harris, by the way, had a cup of coffee with Steelers during the 2012 preseason as he was signed to their roster for their final exhibition game that year due to injuries.
Lynch was to see a specialist this week concerning the abdomen injury he’s been dealing with. There’s speculation that Lynch might have a sports hernia that could require season-ending surgery.
