Coach Pete Carroll said it was time for Lynch to see more game-action to be ready for the start of the regular season.
"It’s time for him to get some carries and get involved a little bit. I really could not be more pleased with the conditioning level that he’s had, the consistency of practice and his preparation has been great. He’ll be ready to go and I know he’s looking forward to that too," Carroll said, according to ProFootballTalk.
Lynch had 1,257 yards and 12 touchdowns last season for the Super Bowl champion Seahawks.
