The Seattle Seahawks are expected to have their starting running back in the backfield this weekend. He’s expected to return against the Arizona Cardinals.

He’s been listed as questionable with a back injury. However, the injury is that serious enough to keep him away from playing in the game.

Lynch appears to no longer have the back spasms, and he practiced with the team on Thursday and Friday. The team is expected to activate him on Sunday at around 3 pm.

The Cardinals and Seahawks are expected to open the season from University of Phoenix Stadium on Sept. 9. The game will kick off at 4:25 PM EST.

“He looks good but it’s still day-to-day,” head coach Pete Carroll said. “He made it through all of the work…. We’ve got to see how he responds tomorrow so it takes us all the way to game-time to make sure everything is all right.”

Lynch had 285 carries for 1,204 yards and 12 touchdowns in his first full season with the team. The 1,204 yards were the most yards in a season at this point in his career, and the 12 touchdowns were also the most, as well.

He came to the team from the Buffalo Bills in a mid-season trade in 2010.

The Seahawks are expecting another big season from Lynch this season. If he’s a go, then expect him to get a big load of the carries in the game.
