In his first preseason game, Lynch played a couple snaps but didn't touch the ball. Carroll said Lynch will see an increased workload in the team's next preseason game.
"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 ended his holdout on July 31. Though the Seahawks did not give him a new contract, the team gave Lynch some financial considerations and effectively guaranteed previously non-guaranteed money.
Last season, Lynch ran for 1,257 yards and 12 touchdowns. In Seattle's Super Bowl victory, he rushed for 39 yards and one touchdown.
