Seattle’s practice begins at 1:30 today. So far, still unclear if Marshawn Lynch will be there.
Offensive line coach Tom Cable was just on with ESPN 710 Seattle and didn’t tip his hand one way or the other, adding that he isn’t really worried if Lynch is there, saying they’ll work with the players that are. (Cable also spoke of how well guards James Carpenter and J.R. Sweezy are playing, indicating there isn’t much competition for those spots right now).
Cable appeared with former Seahawks QB Brock Huard and Danny O’Neil, and Huard said he doesn’t think there is one person in the Seattle building who knows for sure if Lynch will show today.
