Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch missed the team's practice Tuesday with a hip injury, and there has been some concern about how much play he'll get Thursday night as the team travels to Arizona to take on the Cardinals. Should he be limited, the team's backup running backs, Robert Turbin and Christine Michael, will look to get going.
Lynch has 487 rushing yards and five touchdowns on the season. In very limited action, Turbin has 20 rushes for 84 yards, while Michael has nine rushes for 37 yards. Neither guy has scored.
Fantasy impact: The injury concerns for Lynch were mostly early in the week; as the week has gone on it has looked more and more like he'll play without limitation. Even if he is held back, it's hard to imagine either backup gets serious play.
Michael, a rookie out of Texas A&M, was a popular handcuff pick in the preseason, but he has barely seen the field through Seattle's first six games. Turbin, meanwhile, has been Lynch's backup for two seasons and has yet to find the end zone. Neither should start in any fantasy league.
