Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) out against Bengals

Friday October 9th, 2015

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch will miss his second straight game on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals due to a hamstring injury, the team announced Friday.

The Seahawks could also be without backup running back Fred Jackson, who is listed as questionable for the Week 5 matchup.

Thomas Rawls had 17 carries for 48 yards against the Detroit Lions in Seattle’s 13–10 win on Monday night, and will likely replace Lynch in the lineup once again.

The only other running back on the Seahawks’ roster is Rod Smith, who is signed to the practice squad.

Seattle (2–2) meets Cincinnati (4–0) on the road at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday. - Kenny Ducey
