Seahawks sign Brown for 3rd time this year; Lynch rehabbing ‘off site’ with no timetable
SEATTLE – Bryce Brown is back in Seattle. Marshawn Lynch will be too – but the Seahawks still don’t know when.
Coach Pete Carroll said during his weekly Monday press conference that the Seahawks have signed Brown for the third time this season, bringing the running back in to fill the hole left by Thomas Rawls’ injury Sunday and Lynch’s surgery last month.
Carroll said Lynch is rehabbing “off site,” but said he wasn’t sure if there was a chance Lynch will return during the regular season.
“We won’t know until the work starts happening,” he said.
In the meantime, Brown will battle with DuJuan Harris for starting reps and Fred Jackson will remain in his role as a third-down back, Carroll said.
The Seahawks signed Brown on Oct. 27, and he never played before being waived Nov. 21. They signed him again Nov. 24, and waived him again Nov. 28.
Carroll said safety Kam Chancellor is “pretty sore” after bruising his tailbone Sunday, and said it’s unlikely he’ll practice Wednesday.
Even with all the injuries the team is dealing with, Carroll said the team has every reason to be optimistic.
“We have a chance to finish this season on a really high note,” he said. “When all that focus comes together it means special things.”
