Seat­tle looks to Lynch

Winnipeg Free Press - Section D - - SPORTS -

RENTON, Wash. — Com­ing off one of their ugli­est per­for­mances of the sea­son, the Seat­tle Seahawks needed a lit­tle good news.

They may be get­ting it with the po­ten­tial re­turn of run­ning back Mar­shawn Lynch.

Coach Pete Car­roll in­di­cated Mon­day Lynch could re­join the team later this week but said they would have to “wait and see” whether Lynch can play in the reg­u­lar-sea­son fi­nale at Ari­zona.

Lynch has been out since un­der­go­ing ab­dom­i­nal surgery in Novem­ber. Car­roll said de­pend­ing on how Lynch gets through the next few days of per­sonal work­outs with his train­ers in the Bay Area, it’s con­ceiv­able he could be back.

Car­roll’s op­ti­mistic tone about Lynch came a day af­ter Seat­tle’s 23-17 loss to St. Louis that snapped a five-game win­ning streak.
