The Seattle Seahawks will be in Beast mode on Sunday.
Or at least they’ll have that option available.
While there were questions about the availability of running back Marshawn Lynch for Sunday’s divisional round playoff game at Atlanta, he has been listed as probable and is expected to start.
According to Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times, Lynch was limited in practice on Friday after missing workouts on Wednesday and Thursday. Asked if there was any way Lynch would miss the game, Carroll cracked, “I don’t know, miss the flight?”
So, that’s good news for the Seahawks, who will need to run the ball against the Falcons, especially in an effort to take what should be an electrified Georgia Dome crowd out of rhythm.
