‘Beast Mode’ listed as questionable for Sunday night’s NFC West game, but Carroll not worried
RENTON, Wash. — It was a surprise for many when the Seahawks listed running back Marshawn Lynch on Friday’s injury report as questionable for Sunday night’s important divisional game against the Cardinals.
But coach Pete Carroll said later that he believes “Beast Mode” will play.
Lynch was listed as having an abdominal injury, and Carroll explained that the running back “felt a little something in his abdomen that was bothering him” at the end of Thursday’s practice.
But Carroll said he thinks Lynch will be ready by Sunday night.
“We think so, yeah,” Carroll said. “He thinks he’s OK.”
Carroll said wide receiver Paul Richardson, the Seahawks’ first pick in the 2014 draft, will be active for Sunday night’s game. It will be his first time playing this season, as he’s been on the “physically unable to perform” list since suffering an ACL injury in a playoff game last year.
He said they’re taking a “wait and see” approach on cornerback Jeremy Lane, who has been recovering from arm and knee injuries since the Super Bowl game and just started practicing for the first time this week.
