Seahawks Running Back Marshawn Lynch (Hamstring) Will Not Return vs Chicago Bears

Running back Marshawn Lynch was ruled out in the third quarter of Seattle's home opener.

Marshawn Lynch was active for the Seahawks' Week 3 game against the Chicago Bears after being listed as questionable to play with a calf injury. But in the third quarter of the team's home opener at CenturyLink Field, Lynch exited with a hamstring injury and it was announced in the press box that he would not return. 

Lynch, whose day ended with five carries for 14 yards, is backed up at the spot by veteran Fred Jackson and rookie Thomas Rawls. The Seahawks also have fullbacks Derrick Coleman and Will Tukuafu in the mix, with Tukuafu being active for the first time this season. 

We should know more on Lynch's status after the game when Seattle head coach Pete Carroll meets with the media.
