Carroll has big plans for Lynch

All the signs out of Seattle continue to point toward a major role for Marshawn Lynch when the Seahawks return from their bye week against the Bears.

Pete Carroll hinted after the trade that he anticipated a big role for Lynch, and he hasn’t tempered that feeling in his latest comments. Carroll told reporters Monday that Lynch is adjusting quickly to the team’s offensive scheme, according to Greg Johns, who notes he sees Lynch in a lead back role, with Justin Forsett featured in passing situations.

“He’s very much into it,” Carroll said. “I don’t think there’s going to be any problem of him playing a lot in this game.”

Actually, it might be more important for the Seahawks that LT Russell Okung, G Ben Hamilton, G Chester Pitts and RT Sean Locklear are getting healthy.

There’s some room for optimism here, and there’s also the¬†fantasy perspective — and this has to be good news for all you Lynch owners. I’m sure Michael Fabiano and Adam Rank will have a fantasy take on Lynch this week.
