The Seattle Seahawks are taking on the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, and will be doing so without the help of running back Marhsawn Lynch on Sunday. Lynch has been trying to recover from an abdominal strain and missed practice all week.
Marshawn Lynch is NOT active for the Seahawks.

Not that the Seahawks will need Lynch to beat the hapless 49ers, who are trotting out Blaine Gabbert under center.
Lynch's injury clearly hasn't progressed enough for him to get in the starting line up. Head coach Pete Carroll earlier this week said that Lynch was on the probable side of questionable and that he would likely be playing.
Pete Carroll said Marshawn Lynch was expected to play. Turns out... Not so much. He's officially inactive. Thomas Rawls starts.

If Lynch is in your fantasy team, trying to pick up Thomas Rawls if he is available might be a tempting move.
Just saw a report that Marshawn Lynch is inactive. Thomas Rawls becomes a nice RB2.
