Marshawn Lynch was held out of Friday’s practice as he rests a sore knee, according to Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR. He has not practiced at all this week.
However, Lynch is listed as “probable” to play in Super Bowl XLVIII and is expected to be all systems go when the Seahawks play the Denver Broncos on Feb. 2.
Lynch has been one of the hottest Seahawks in recent weeks. He has rushed for consecutive 100+ yard games this postseason, including setting a postseason franchise-record with 140 rushing yards against the New Orleans Saints on Jan. 11.
In the regular season finale, Lynch rushed for 97 yards. It was the seventh time in the regular season that Lynch had at least 90 rushing yards.
Wide receiver Doug Baldwin was also held out of practice on Friday as he recovers from a hip-pointer suffered against the 49ers on Sunday.
Baldwin, like Lynch, is expected to play as usual in the Super Bowl and is listed as “probable” on the injury report. He has also not practiced at all this week.
In the NFC title game, Baldwin recorded six catches for 106 yards.
Corner Byron Maxwell (neck) and linebacker K.J. Wright (foot) were the only other players who did not practice on Friday. They are both listed as “probable”.
Defensive tackle Brandon Mebane (ankle) was limited in practice but it also “probable”.
Percy Harvin practiced in full all week for the first time in a long time. It was announced earlier this week that he will play with no limitations in the Super Bowl.
He has only played in two of the Seahawks 18 games this season.
