Marshawn Lynch good to go for Sunday

Marshawn Lynch missing a Wednesday practice was hardly notable, but when the Seahawks running back sat out Thursday's practice as well with a foot injury, plenty of Seahawks fans were worried about his availability.

But Lynch returned to practice Friday and is expected to be fine for Sunday's game, Pete Carroll said.

"He was limited in practice today," Carroll said. "He looked fine, and we’re going to give him a really good chance to play. He’s probable."

Asked what it would take for Lynch to not play Sunday, Carroll said, "Miss the flight? He’s fine, he’ll be all right."

Safety Jeron Johnson (hamstring) was limited Friday and is listed as questionable, while CB Byron Maxwell (hamstring) was held out for a third straight day and is listed as doubtful.

Sidney Rice was added to the injury report with a knee injury and didn't practice, but he is listed as probable.

Also, Carroll said that newly signed DE Patrick Chukwurah will play in a backup role and on special teams: "He showed enough that he's going to be dressing for the game. We'll see how he does."
