Marshawn Lynch sidelined with hamstring injury but won't be out for long

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has been sidelined with a hamstring injury, but his Head Coach Pete Carroll says he shouldn't be out for too long.

Beast Mode was questionable entering yesterday's 26-0 shutout win against the Chicago Bears at CenturyLink Field due to a calf injury. This forced him to limited practice throughout the past week.

He missed the first two series for the Seahawks and only stayed in the game until halftime due to a hamstring injury. He didn't return at any point in the second half, meaning he finished the game with 14 yards from five carries, and also one reception for nine yards.

While many Seahawks fans and Lynch fantasy owners feared the worst when Beast Mode didn't return for the second half, Carroll says there's nothing to worry about, and he shouldn't be out of action for long at all.

He said, according to ESPN: "We've checked it all out, and there is nothing to be alarmed by. So we'll just have to wait and see.

"He has a sequence that he goes through to get ready to go. It's happened before where he just can't get into rhythm and get right and all that. So he had a calf [issue] during the week, and his hamstring kind of bothered him a little bit here today. But he just couldn't get ready.

"He tried to get out there and did a little bit of running and all but couldn't answer it in the second half."

Lynch hasn't missed a game for the Seahawks since 2011, but if he was to be out for two or more weeks, the team should be able to cope without him. Rookie running back Thomas Rawls ran for 104 yards from 16 carries, and will likely pick up the workload alongside Fred Jackson in Beast Mode's absence.
