Seattle's Lynch (foot) expected to play at Atlanta
RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has a sprained foot but is probable and expected to play Sunday against Atlanta.
Coach Pete Carroll said Lynch got work in practice Friday for the first time this week and looked fine. Asked what it would take for Lynch not to play, Carroll cracked, "Miss the flight? Doesn't show up in Atlanta?"
Lynch rushed for 132 yards and a touchdown in last week's wild-card round win over Washington. He did not participate in practice Wednesday and Thursday.
Wide receiver Sidney Rice did not practice Friday with a knee injury but was listed as probable. Reserve safety Jeron Johnson was questionable with a hamstring and reserve cornerback Byron Maxwell is doubtful (hamstring).
Carroll said newly signed backup defensive end Patrick Chukwurah will likely be active for Sunday's game.
