Seahawks' Lynch questionable with hip injury

The Sports NetworkOctober 11, 2013 

Renton, WA ( - Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was held out of Friday's practice due to an issue with his hip, and the team listed its leading rusher questionable for Sunday's game with the Tennessee Titans.

Head coach Pete Carroll told reporters on Friday, however, that Lynch's injury is minor and he expects him to play this weekend.

The powerful back entered Week 6 third in the NFL with 410 rushing yards and has scored three touchdowns in Seattle's first five games.

Seattle also expects to have starting center Max Unger back from a two-game absence caused by an upper arm injury. The fifth-year pro practiced in full throughout the week and was declared probable on the final injury.

Right tackle Breno Giacomini, however, will miss a third straight contest as he recovers from a recent knee scope.

While Lynch appears ready to go, Carroll was not optimistic on the status of middle linebacker Bobby Wagner, who sprained his ankle in last week's game at Indianapolis and did not practice during the week. He was listed as doubtful to face the Titans.

K.J. Wright will likely shift from the outside into Wagner's post for Sunday's matchup.

Tight end Zach Miller (hamstring) also sat out a third consecutive practice on Friday, but has been termed questionable for this week's clash. He did not play in last Sunday's 34-28 loss to the Colts.
