Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was absent from the team’s practice session on Tuesday, but there shouldn’t be any major concerns. Lynch was likely getting a day off to rest up for Thursday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium.
There was initially some confusion over what boy part was keeping Lynch out of action, but the team finally cleared it up and stated that it is a hip issue that resulted in his absence.
From John Boyle of the Everett Herald:
#Seahawks say Marshawn Lynch should be listed as hip, not ankle, on today’s injury report.

Again, there is really no reason to believe that Lynch will miss any action, so don’t get too panicked if you are wondering what to do with your fantasy football line up.
By the time Thursday night rolls around, Lynch will be rested up and prepared to go in full beast mode and do what he can to help the team work their way towards yet another victory.
