Marshawn Lynch does not travel with Seahawks, will not play against Vikings

Out since Week 10 there had been some thought that Marshawn Lynch would return to action in Sunday’s Wild Card round game against the Vikings.

ESPN’s John Clayton reports that the running back will be downgraded to out after not traveling with the team on Friday night. He will not play in Sunday’s game in Minnesota.

GAME PREVIEW: Vikings vs. Seahawks

Lynch is still recovering from abdomen surgery that took place on Nov. 25.

Without Lynch the Seahawks will again be forced to go with a mixture of Christine Michael and Bryce Brown while Fred Jackson should get the bulk of passing down plays.
