RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is “full go” for returning to practice after being away from the team since undergoing abdominal surgery in late November.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Lynch went through walkthrough on Wednesday morning and was expected to be a full participant in practice later Wednesday.
Lynch has not practiced since Week 9 before the Seahawks faced Arizona. Lynch had surgery on Nov. 25 and has been working out with his personal trainers in the Bay Area the past few weeks.
If he makes it through the week, Lynch would be the presumptive starter for Sunday’s NFC wild-card game against Minnesota.
Carroll also said strong safety Kam Chancellor (pelvis/tailbone), guard J.R. Sweezy (concussion), tackle Russell Okung (calf) and tight end Luke Willson (concussion) are all on track to play this week after missing last week’s game with injuries.
