Anyone hoping Marshawn Lynch will be back before the season finale in Arizona had better rethink that idea. In fact, it appears the Seahawks might be lucky to have Lynch back for the playoffs.
Pete Carroll said Monday he doesn’t know whether Lynch, who had abdominal surgery Nov. 25, will return before the playoffs.
“He went through a big surgery. He’s got a lot to get through, and he’s got to get past that, whatever impact that’s had,” Carroll said. “He’s got to get back into shape and get going. … He hasn’t been able to go yet very hard. He’s going to have to work through that and get himself going again and come back and show that he’s back and ready to go.”
Asked about the timeframe, Carroll said, “I don’t know. We won’t know until the work starts happening.”
