The Seattle Seahawks are bracing for the possibility they will be without Marshawn Lynch for Sunday’s season opener at the Arizona Cardinals.

The running back has been experiencing issues with back spasms, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, and his status remains up in the air at this point.

The Seahawks made the decision to go with rookie Russell Wilson as their starting quarterback and certainly would like to have their veteran workhorse on the field for the offense to lean on. There is still plenty of time for Lynch so we’ll see how this shakes out.
