Seattle’s injury report for Thursday included one familiar name but with a new injury — running back Marshawn Lynch, who sat out with a calf injury.
Lynch also sat out Wednesday for his usual day of rest during the week. Coach Pete Carroll does not talk to the media on Thursday so there are no additional details on what may be the situation with Lynch. He has been listed a few times this year on the injury report with a sore back. Calf, though, is something new. And while mid-week injuries often may be nothing, both Kam Chancellor and Russell Okung ended up missing the Oakland game after being hurt in practice last week.
Lynch was one of eight players who sat out today, including two have already been declared out for Sunday’s game against the Giants — TE Zach Miller and MLB Bobby Wagner.
Also out today were OL James Carpenter (ankle), C Stephen Schilling (knee), S Kam Chancellor (groin), LB Malcolm Smith (groin) and DL Michael Bennett (toe).
Bennett has been on the injury list with a toe injury several times in the last few weeks and played. Carroll said earlier this week that Chancellor might be limited in practice but was expected to to play Sunday.
In the good news department, center C Max Unger was listed as a full participant for the first time since injuring his foot at Washington, indicating he will indeed make it back against the Giants.
Also listed as a full participant was DE O’Brien Schofield, who was out Wednesday with a head injury.
Listed as participating on a limited basis today were CB Byron Maxwell (calf), DT Jordan Hill (ankle), LT Russell Okung (calf) and WR Doug Baldwin (groin), indicating all may be able to play Sunday against the Giants.
For Maxwell, that is the most he has practiced since being injured against Dallas Oct. 12.
