News you need to know
General News (Sat Jan 31): practiced fully on Saturday and is expected to play this week.
General News (Wed Jan 28): could face a significant fine for wearing an unauthorized "beast mode" hat to media day. Lynch doesn't want to talk to the media, and he wants to wear what he likes. The fines go to charity, and Lynch has no problem paying.
General News (Tue Jan 27): was fined $20,000 Thursday, Jan. 22, for an obscene gesture he made after scoring a touchdown in the NFC Championship game, according to an NFL official. He's also subject to a fine for not speaking to the media after the game, and the league is considering fining him significantly more than the $50,000 he has been previously fined for not speaking to reporters. An NFL official said there would be increasing fines if Lynch misses sessions during Super Bowl week, with each fine being more than the two $50,000 fines already imposed and the upcoming penalty.
General News (Tue Jan 27): is expected to return in 2015 with the team more than open to bringing him back at a $5 million salary. "Mainly because he actually has outperformed his contract and clearly established himself as the identity of this team," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said on NFL Gameday Morning. "Basically, they don't have a choice based on the way he plays to bring him back." Lynch, however, may consider retirement if the Seahawks win the Super Bowl, according to Rapoport. Lynch has reportedly told people in private that he may simply just walk away from the game.

Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 19 vs CAR (14 / 59 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 6 / 0 rec)
Lynch took a backseat to the passing game for a change. On a YPC basis, he had a fine game, just nothing to write home about. As we've seen before, he tends to get stronger as the game goes on, and in this one, surprised the Panther defense with a 25 yard burst, just as they thought they had him in check.
2014 Week 20 vs GB (25 / 157 / 1 rush, 3 / 1 / 26 / 0 rec)
Lynch truly was the saving grace for this offense, gutting it out, moving piles for consistent yardage, and typically getting stronger as the game wore on. With nothing else going well, at least the Seahawks knew they could depend on Lynch when the chips were down. And he did not let them down. He came up big on a few runs in the final quarter, and inside the two minute mark, brought the Seahawks back from the dead with a marvelous sideline catch that saw him just barely step out at the 9 yard line; followed by a 24 yard TD run with under a minute to go, that put them ahead for the first time all game.
