The latest on the 0-2 Seahawks, who will try to break into the win column this week against bottom-feeding Chicago:
- Running back Marshawn Lynch has a calf injury and will be a game-time decision Sunday, head coach Pete Carroll said (Twitter link via The Seattle Times’ Bob Condotta). Lynch hasn’t quite been himself in 2015, averaging just 3.5 yards per carry with no touchdowns. The Bears give up 4.3 yards per attempt, so whether it’s Lynch or backup Fred Jackson, Seattle should be able to run the ball this weekend.
- Mike Freeman of Nerdy Football said earlier this week that tight end Jimmy Graham is frustrated with his lack of usage so far this year. That’s news to Graham, Condotta tweeted. Graham added that he’s only frustrated with losing games (Twitter link). The 28-year-old was among the NFL’s best weapons from 2011-14 in New Orleans, which traded him to the Seahawks in the offseason for Max Unger and a first-round pick. He has been quiet in Seattle, though, with only seven catches, 62 yards and a score in two games.
- Safety Kam Chancellor, who ended his long holdout earlier this week, is expected to play Sunday (Twitter link via Condotta).
