The regular-season opener against an NFC West rival may already be impacted, and we haven’t even started training camp yet. The Seattle Seahawks will visit University of Phoenix Stadium Sept. 9, but they may be without the anchor of their offense after running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested on suspicion of a DUI. Lynch has not only been in trouble with the law before but has also been suspended, so the chances NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suspends him for this would seem to go up.
If that were to happen, he’d miss the game against the Cards. Last year, it wasn’t as if Lynch killed the Cards. While he totaled a career-best 1,204 yards and 12 touchdowns, he had just 73 yards on 19 carries in the Seahawks’ 13-10 win over the Cards in Seattle, and then had 86 yards on 19 carries in the Cards’ season-closing 23-20 overtime win in Arizona. He had no touchdowns. But Lynch was still going to be the focal point of the offense, especially after signing a new contract.
