Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (ankle) attended the team's first day of minicamp Tuesday, June 17, but did not practice because of a sore ankle.
Huddle Up: So much for the retirement talk. Lynch may not be happy with his contract, but even being underpaid is better than not being paid at all.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is unlikely to retire this offseason, according to Tennessee Titans SS Jordan Babineaux. Babineaux said Lynch has been working on his training separate from the team. The Seahawks aren't likely to give Lynch an extension because he's already paid like a top-five running back.
Huddle Up: It's the offseason, so if there's a little smoke expect it to be fanned into a raging inferno. Lynch isn't likely to retire with a couple well-paid seasons left on his contract, so no need to bump him down your cheat sheet.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is expected to skip the team's mandatory minicamp next week, according to sources familiar with the team's thinking. Lynch skipped the team's visit to the White House in May, and reportedly hasn't appeared at any of the team's voluntary organized team activities (OTAs). He is thought to be unhappy with his contact, though it's not clear if that is the only football-related reason the running back is considering skipping or reporting late to minicamp.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks have hinted that their backfield may take on more of a committee approach this season, which may be one reason Lynch isn't showing up for things. It's a situation that bears watching, as Lynch is one of the few backs expected to consistently get 20-plus touches a game; if that plan is changing, his fantasy value will dip significantly.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is skipping organized team activities this week, which has given RB Christine Michael plenty of work. Michael had 'several impressive' runs in 11-on-11 drills Thursday, May 29.
Huddle Up: As we saw on Super Bowl Media Day, Lynch follows his own calendar, but that certainly hasn't seemed to affect the RB's production as he's had at least 1,416 yards from scrimmage and 12 TDs in each of his 3 seasons in Seattle.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of reckless driving Thursday, Feb. 20, which will end his pending DUI case. He'll receive two years probation as part of the plea bargain, along with a fine determined by the judge.
Huddle Up: We'll see if the reduced charge is enough for Lynch to avoid NFL sanctions, although the RB has built a history of infractions.

The Pro Football Writers of America issued a statement that they were disappointed with Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch's conduct during media day at the Super Bowl. Lynch left his designated area after only six minutes, hide off to the side and eventually cursed in a live interview with NFL Network's Deion Sanders.
Huddle Up: Evidently there weren't enough Skittles available, or maybe Lynch figured Richard Sherman did enough talking for all the Seahawks. The league might get around to disciplining Lynch eventually--perhaps right after they discipline him from his years-old DUI that has yet to make it to trial.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch will not be fined for only speaking to the media for 6 minutes during Super Bowl media day.
Huddle Up: If Lynch can grind out a 100-yard game Sunday on the Super stage, they won't mind if he never says another word to the media again.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 16.
Huddle Up: Lynch, who is on an NFC title game collision course with the Niners' D, has 3 100-yard games and 5 rushing TDs in 5 career playoff games with the 'Hawks.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch was fined $50,000 by the NFL for not speaking to the media throughout the season.
Huddle Up: Meanwhile, Lynch's play -- three straight top-five fantasy RB seasons -- continues to speak volumes in the fantasy world.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch rushed for 45 yards on 16 carries and added 12 more on three receptions Monday, Nov. 2 in a 34-7 win over the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Those needing even a mediocre game out of Lynch to make the fantasy playoffs likely had their hopes dashed as he was held to fewer than 50 rushing yards and out of the end zone for only the third time this season. The Seahawks obviously had an aerial-oriented game plan with QB Russell Wilson attempting 30 passes for only the fourth time all season, and they'll be better games ahead -- sooner rather than later -- for Lynch.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 8, and is listed as probable for Week 10.
Huddle Up: Lynch's status for Sunday was never in any doubt. He has a great match-up against a soft Falcons' rush defense.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (knee) was listed as a limited participant Wednesday, Nov. 6, in practice.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 1, and is listed as probable for Week 9.
Huddle Up: Lynch missed two days of practice this week but he'll start on Sunday against Tampa Bay. After seeing just eight carries last weeks, expect Lynch to be a bigger part of the offense this week.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (knee) is expected to play in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers despite missing practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 31.
Huddle Up: That's what fantasy GMs have come to expect of Lynch, who only has missed 1 game over the past 3 seasons. More confirmation could come Friday if he's able to get out on the practice field.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 31.
Huddle Up: We haven't heard that Lynch is in any real danger of missing Sunday's game, but things are starting to getting a little concerning given he's now missed the past 2 days of practice. See if the situation brightens Friday.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 30.
Huddle Up: This is a new injury for Lynch and he's coming a game where he only got eight carries. Keep an eye on Lynch's participation in practice for the rest of the week but as of right now he's still expected to start Sunday against Tampa Bay.

Updating a previous report, the Seattle Seahawks said Tuesday, Oct. 15, that RB Marshawn Lynch should be listed on the injury report with a hip injury, not an ankle injury, as previously reported.
Huddle Up: This is the same injury that flared late last week, though it didn't keep Lynch off the field. In other words, he'll be listed and probably limited in practice but there's no reason to think he won't be in the lineup Thursday night.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hip) did not practice Tuesday, Oct. 15. Lynch often times takes days off practice to rest up. He missed two days last week with a hip injury, including Friday, but still played in Week 6.
Huddle Up: No worries whatsoever, even with the short week. Lynch was dealing with the issue a week ago, and still rolled up 165 total yards and 2 scores on Sunday.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hip) did not practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is questionable for Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans. However, head coach Pete Carroll is optimistic Lynch will suit up. 'We were treating him for a little hip thing, but he's fine,' Carroll said.
Huddle Up: Lynch is a true gamer, and it's going to take a lot to keep him on the sidelines for only his 2nd game as a Seahawk. For now, plan on starting him as usual.
