The Seattle Seahawks came in to the 2015 NFL season with high hopes of reaching the Super Bowl again and avenging their loss to the New England Patriots.

And then the new campaign started and Seattle lost both of their opening games of the season, to the Green Bay Packers and St Louis Rams, before finally getting their first win of the year in a shut-out against the Bears.

Lynch Laboring

The Seahawks now face an under-performing Detroit Lions side at home, but they might have to do it without Marshawn Lynch, with head coach Pete Carroll remaining coy over the star running back's status.

 Carroll was speaking to reporters ahead of the game, but didn't give anything away.

“Not at this point,” Carroll said Thursday when asked whether he knows if Lynch will be able to play on Monday night against the Lions. “It’s going to take us all week to figure out and see how he is.”

Injured Hamstring

In other words, check the injury reports when they come out. There’s a chance folks will be checking the injury reports regarding Lynch, who didn’t practice on Thursday, for a while.

“We’ll just wait and see,” Carroll said regarding whether it could be a long-term problem for Lynch. “We don’t need to make any big declarations right now. We’ll just wait and gather information right now. I know he wants to play and he’s determined to try to do that, so we’ll just see. . . . It may go all the way to game day.”

If Lynch isn't ready to go then it looks like undrafted rookie Thomas Rawls could step up to the plate and make his first start in the NFL.  Rawls ran for 104 yards against the Bears on 16 carries last Sunday.
