Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is expected to get his first carries of the preseason tonight against the Chicago Bears.
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.
