The CBS Sports broadcast team reported that Marshawn Lynch is feeling sick. He has gone to the locker room for evaluation. Fred Jackson is seeing most of the backfield work in Lynch’s absence.
In Kansas City, Kolby Smith sustained a serious leg injury and is being taken off the field on a cart. That means more carries for Jamaal Charles and Jackie Battle, who was signed off the practice squad. With Smith hurt and Larry Johnson out at least one more week, Charles will be a hot name on the waiver wire this week.
