Marshawn Lynch Probable Vs. Bengals

Running back Marshawn Lynch dressed, but did not play in the Seattle Seahawks' 6-3 loss to the Cleveland Browns in Week 7 after a nagging back injury flared up during pregame warm-ups. Lynch jogged along the sidelines and rode the exercise bike to loosen up his back to no avail, as Leon Washington and Justin Forsett would combine for 15 carries and 62 yards.

The Seahawks eased Lynch back into action during practice, as the veteran was limited on Wednesday before participating fully on Thursday and Friday. Lynch was officially listed as "Probable" on the team's final injury report of the week and is expected to start and be the Seahawks' primary ball-carrier against the Cincinnati Bengals at CenturyLink Field on Sunday.

Under coordinator Mike Zimmer, the Bengals possess the league's No. 2-ranked defense, ranking fifth against the run with 89.5 yards allowed per game.
