Offensive line coach Tom Cable said today there was no mystery among those who needed to know about Marshawn Lynch’s decision to stay on the field at halftime of Sunday’s game at Kansas City rather than going into the locker room.
Cable said he knew Lynch was getting treatment for his back and other injuries and that “to ay or think otherwise is ridiculous.”
“I knew what he was doing,” Cable said. “We all knew. He was out there and getting worked on, and he needed to with the way his body is at right now.”
Cable went on to say that getting treated on the sidelines at halftime was “the best thing” for Lynch “just keeping him out there and treat him and not waste time going in there. Because when we came back out I told him what our plan was moving forward and he got it and here we go.”
Asked that that makes it appear that halftime is meaningless, Cable laughed and said: “It is sometimes. It ain’t very long. A chance to just take a breath, I guess. It ain’t very long,. You are in, you are out.”
