The Seattle Seahawks are expected to wait until the end of the week before making a decision on running back Marshawn Lynch's status for Week 1. Coach Pete Caroll said Wednesday that Lynch, who has been dealing with back spasms, needs to get his "football legs" back. Lynch was limited in practice on Wednesday. Rookie Robert Turbin would start against the Arizona Cardinals if Lynch doesn't play.
Fantasy Impact: Lynch has said his goal is to play but not being in game shape is a bit of a concern for fantasy owners counting on him this weekend. His progress will be monitored as the week goes along but fantasy owners should be prepared for this to be a game-time decision.
