Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch misses practice again Thursday
Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has rushed for more than 100 yards in each of his last five games and nine of his last 11. That success must be taking quite a toll on his feet. Lynch sat out a second consective day of practice Thursday because of a foot injury. However, there is no palpable concern that Lynch will miss or be restrained in Sunday's playoff game against the Falcons. Lynch played through a back injury for much of the regular season.
And I'd say he played pretty well. The Falcons allowed the 11th-most fantasy points to running backs this season and they were torched by Bucs RB Doug Martin in the regular-season finale. Lynch should top 20 touches and 100 yards again this weekend without much of a problem. Backup RB Robert Turbin will continue to see no more than a few carries.
