Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch will play today against the Chicago Bears despite recent injury concerns, according to

The running back was listed as questionable due to a calf injury he picked up last week against the Green Bay Packers. However, he will suit up later today against the Packers' divisional rivals the Bears.

So far this season, Beast Mode hasn't managed to score a rushing touchdown, but he has acquired 114 rushing yards, and will be helping the Seahawks try to obtain their first win this season.

If Lynch's carries are limited because of the calf injury, backups Fred Jackson and Thomas Rawls will each take up a share of the load. Lynch hasn't missed a game in four years and consistently plays fully through injuries, so we shouldn't really expect changes to the workload for the five-time Pro Bowler.

The Bears defense haven't been that good so far this season, so the Seahawks should find it quite easy to pick up the win so long as everything goes to plan.

They haven't been good at defending against opposing quarterbacks moving the ball in the air, so Russell Wilson should have a good day.

If he does, this should open things up for Lynch later on in the running game, as the Seahawks rack up the score in what should be an easy win for them in their first home game of the season.
