Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin (hip) will not play in Week 14.
Insight: Harvin has played just one game this season following hip surgery, and he had to have another procedure done on the hip last week. Doug Baldwin, who has produced 63-77 yards in each of the last four games with a touchdown in three of them, should be considered a solid WR3 this week.

Insight: It sounds like Harvin received a cortisone injection. The Seahawks have already clinched a playoff berth so they won't be in any hurry to bring Harvin back. If he's not 100 percent, we may not see him again until the postseason.

Insight: That won't help fantasy owners any. It's not time to drop Harvin yet but if his hip doesn't improve quickly, there may come a time when fantasy owners have to cut their losses and move on without him.

Insight: The Seahawks have only had Harvin for one game this season so this doesn't change much. Seattle will continue to use running back Marshawn Lynch as the focal point while mixing in a few throws to Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin along the way.

Insight: He missed practice on Thursday and Friday because of hip soreness. It's become clear that Harvin isn't close to 100 percent and probably won't be until next season. With so many other good wideouts out there, he's just too big a risk to have in your lineup, especially with the Seahawks playing on Monday night this week.
Description: Seattle cornerback Brandon Browner has been hit with an eight-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. SOURCE: Mike Silver, NFL Network
Insight: The reason it's an eight-game ban instead of just four is because Browner is a second-time offender. Browner was probably going to miss the rest of the regular season anyway because of a groin injury. In eight games this season, Browner has recorded 19 tackles and one interception. Ironically, his replacment in the starting lineup, Walter Thurmond, was also suspended this week.
Description: Seattle cornerback Walter Thurmond has been suspended four games for violating the league's drug policy. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
Insight: The Seahawks are on bye this week so it's possible he could appeal the suspension. If Thurmond decides not to appeal, he'd be eligible to return for the regular season finale December 29th against St. Louis. Thurmond began the year as a backup but has been starting in place of the injured Brandon Browner.
Description: Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said receiver Percy Harvin (hip surgery) will not be limited coming out of the bye, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
Insight: Harvin was limited to 16 offensive plays and a kickoff return in his 2013 debut. "When we come back, if everything goes like we hope, then he’ll be right back in the mix and he’ll be in normal rotation and returning kicks and the whole thing," Carroll said Monday.
Description: Seattle wideout Percy Harvin (hip surgery) came through his debut without incident.
Insight: Harvin was limited to 16 offensive plays and a kickoff return. He'll get a bye week to get healthier and barring a setback should be a full-time receiver when the Seahawks return to the field in Week 13.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin (hip) will practice Wednesday, according to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle.
Insight: Harvin is expected to play on a limited basis in Week 11 against the Vikings, his former team, after missing the first nine games due to hip surgery. He's a must-own player but is just a low-end WR3 this week due to the uncertainty of his situation.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin (hip) is expected to play in Week 11 against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Insight: However, he'll play on a limited basis. Harvin will be a risky play until we see how much the Seahawks want to use him coming off his injury. Golden Tate will be the better option for one more week.
Description: Seattle cornerback Brandon Browner "could be out for quite a while" with a groin injury, according to Seahawks coach Pete Carroll.
Insight: Walter Thurmond will take over for Browner at right corner. He'a big-time defense who can cover any receiver and this injury will certainly take away from a Seahawks defense that is ranked third yielding just 15.9 ppg through 10 games.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin was a longshot for Week 10 against Atlanta and he still hasn't practiced so he'll sit out the game.
Insight: Harvin seems likely to return in Week 11, which ironically would be against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings. Harvin hasn't played yet this season after undergoing offseason hip surgery.

Insight: Harvin, who has now been practicing for over two weeks, seems more likely to return in Week 11. Ironically, that would be against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings. Harvin hasn't played yet this season after undergoing offseason hip surgery.
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has recorded multiple touchdowns in each of the last three games.
Insight: Wilson threw his first two picks since Week 5 Sunday against the Buccaneers but also had 217 yards and two touchdowns through the air and 36 yards and a score on the ground. He can be trusted as a top-10 quarterback in Week 10 at Atlanta.
Description: Seattle wideout Percy Harvin won't be activated for Week 9. SOURCE: Lindsay Jones, USA Today
Insight: He's still recovering from offseason hip surgery. Harvin's timetable for a return seems to get murkier by the day. The Seahawks could really use him, especially now that Sidney Rice is done for the year with a torn ACL.
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch did not practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, according to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle.
Insight: Seattle coach Pete Caroll did not mention any knee issues with Lynch during his Wednesday press conference. Lynch often doesn't practice on Wednesday's anyway for rest, but when that happens he's listed as NIR (not injury related).
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin (hip) is not practicing Wednesday, according to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle.
Insight: Seattle coach Pete Carroll said the team doesn't want to push Harvin yet, even with Sidney Rice going on injured reserve with a torn ACL. We doubt Harvin will be ready to play Sunday against Tampa Bay.
Description: Seattle wideout Sidney Rice is done for the year with a torn ACL. SOURCE: NBC's Pro Football Talk
Insight: It's a blow to the team's receiving corps but with Percy Harvin set to return shortly, help is on the way. Rice will finish the 2013 campaign with 15 receptions, 231 receiving yards and three touchdowns. Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin should both see more targets in Rice's absence.
Description: Percy Harvin's hip gave him a little trouble after practicing this week, but it's not expected to set him back.
Insight: Harvin wasn't expected back until Week 11, though Monday night's injury to Sidney Rice could speed up the process. Harvin should be a stud in this offense with defenses having to deal with Marshawn Lynch and the running of Russell Wilson and often leaving their receivers in one-on-one situations.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin (hip) will not play Monday night, coach Pete Carroll said, according to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle.
Insight: Harvin returned to practice this week, but the team has three weeks before they have to activate him from the PUP list. They face St. Louis and backup quarterback Kellen Clemens this Monday and will likely win the game without him, so there's no need to rush him back. Golden Tate has decent 12-team WR3 value this week. Harvin should be owned in all leagues.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin (hip) hasn't been ruled out for Week 8 against St. Louis, but it isn't a good fantasy play to use him this week.
Insight: Harvin returned to practice Tuesday, but the team has three weeks before they have to activate him from the PUP list. They face St. Louis and backup quarterback Kellen Clemens this Monday and can probably win the game without Harvin so the team figures to play it conservatively.
Description: Seattle wideout Percy Harvin won't play this week against the Cardinals but there's an outside chance he could be available for next week's tilt against the Rams. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
Insight: Harvin needed the first seven weeks of the year to recover from offseason hip surgery. He's the Seahawks' best receiving weapon when healthy.
Description: The Seattle Seahawks will be without middle linebacker Bobby Wagner for the team's Week 7 Thursday night matchup with Arizona.
Insight: The Seahawks are the No. 2 fantasy defense and while this injury will hurt, they should still be a top performer in Week 7 against a Cardinals' offense that is second in the league with 15 turnovers.
Description: The NFL Network is reporting that Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin will begin practicing next week.
Insight: Harvin was eligible to come off the PUP list in Week 7, but we don't expect it to happen. Week 10 or 11 is more likely. If he's still sitting as a free agent in your league it's time to stash him.
Description: Seahawks halfback Marshawn Lynch steamrolled the Titans on Sunday (21 carries, 77 yards, 2 TD, 4 rec, 78 yds).
Insight: It wasn't one of Lynch's more efficient efforts (just 3.7 ypc) but his two touchdowns are sure to have fantasy owners smiling. Week in and week out, Lynch continues to be one of fantasy's most consistent point producers at the running back position.
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch didn't practice Friday due to a hip injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans, but coach Pete Carroll indicated that Lynch should be able to play. SOURCE: Brady Henderson, 710 ESPN Seattle
Insight: Lynch has 410 rushing yards and 96 receiving yards with four total touchdowns this season, but three of his scores came in Week 2. The running back should be able to play Sunday against Tennessee and is a RB1.
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has rushed for 179 yards on 23 carries the last two games after picking up jsut 54 yards on the ground his first three.
Insight: Wilson's fantasy owners need the rushing production because he just isn't a prolific passing option. He had 210 yards, two touchdown and one pick through the air Sunday at Indianapolis, and that represented his second best fantasy passing game of the season.
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has alternated good and bad games this season, and Week 4 was one of his good ones. He had 98 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries and also caught three passes for 45 yards against Houston.
Insight: Lynch already has eight catches this season. He came into Sunday's game averaging just 3.4 yards per carry, but he broke free for a 43-yard run against the Texans.
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had four touchdowns Sunday against the Jaguars before being pulled in the third quarter.
Insight: The Seahawks pulled out their starters after going up 31-0 with 11:41 remaining in the third. Wilson threw for 202 yards in the game and hit Sidney Rice and Zach Miller two times apiece for scores.
Description: According to NBC Sports' Michele Tafoya, the weather in Seattle for Sunday night's game against the 49ers is not expected to be as bad as initially expected.
Insight: Tafoya says it appears the area will just have light rain. With winds expected to be around 10 mph, fantasy owners can start all relevant Seahawks and Niners without worrying about the weather conditions.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin is ahead of schedule in his recovery from hip surgery and has "wowed his surgeon," according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com.
Insight: Harvin tweeted earlier this week that he is "making serious progress" and that fans should "keep an eye on Week 7." He initially was expected to be out into December, but he could be back well before then.
Description: Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin tweeted Wednesday that fans should "keep an eye on Week 7."
Insight: Harvin informed the public that he is "making serious progress" in his recovery from hip surgery. While it's unlikely Harvin will be back immediately after his stay on the PUP list ends, fantasy owners should target him late in drafts because he could very well be back before November.
Description: Seattle coach Pete Carroll expects wideout Sidney Rice (knee) to be ready for Week 1, according to a beat writer Bob Condotta.
Insight: Rice is as fragile as they come and any fantasy owner who takes a chance on him better be holding his lucky rabbit's foot. He caught 50 balls for 748 yards and seven touchdowns last season, but missed 17 of 32 games in the previous two campaigns.
Description: Another nice showing from Seahawks rookie backup running back Christine Michael. He rushed 11 times for 97 yards against Green Bay on Friday night.
Insight: Unless Marshawn Lynch gets hurt or has more legal issues, Michael shouldn't have much fantasy value this season, but keeper league owners should keep an eye on him as he looks like a better option/handcuff than Robert Turbin. Michael has rushed for 186 yards on 27 carries in the preseason (6.9 ypc).
Description: Seattle second-year wide receiver Jermaine Kearse put together quite a performance this week after catching three balls for 43 yards and two scores and returning a kickoff 107 yards for a touchdown.
Insight: With Percy Harvin out for a while and Sidney Rice hurting, the Seahawks can use all the wideout depth they can get behind Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin. Add in return yardage and Kearse could be a nice last-round flier with upside.
Description: A nice showing from Seahawks No. 3 running back, rookie Christine Michael, in the preseason opener - 16 carries for 89 yards.
Insight: Unless Marshawn Lynch gets hurt or has more legal issues, Michael shouldn't have much fantasy value this season, but keeper league owners should keep an eye on him and he could give backup Robert Turbin a run for his money.
Description: Jaguars backup running back Justin Forsett continues to miss time with a sprained right toe.
Insight: Given the fact that starter Maurice Jones-Drew missed 10 games last season and is still sidelined while rehabing his surgically repaired left foot, the backup job in Jacksonville has added importance. It's Forsett's job to lose, but his absence gives rookie Denard Robinson and other youngsters an opportunity to show their talents.
Description: Seattle receiver Golden Tate has been developing a solid rapport with second-year quarterback Russell Wilson and could be ready to take a leap forward.
Insight: With Percy Harvin sidelined, Sidney Rice getting treatment for his knee in Switzerland and tight end Zach Miller also injured, Tate and Wilson are getting plenty of reps together. He could end up being a nice late-round buy. His fantasyfootballcalculator.com ADP has dropped from 158 to 123 over the past couple of weeks.
Description: According to Mike Garafolo of FOXSports.com, Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin is expected to return from his hip surgery around Thanksgiving or in early December.
Insight: Harvin tweeted Tuesday that he would need surgery on his torn hip labrum after all, but he's apparently not done for the season. Still, he's likely to miss at least 11 games. Seattle's bye week is not until Week 12. With Sidney Rice also regularly banged up, Golden Tate could emerge as the No. 1 receiver for the Seahawks.
Description: The first word of the season on Seattle wideout Sidney Rice, from coach Pete Carroll, isn't a good one - he went to Switzerland for treatment of his knee.
Insight: Carroll says he'll be ready for Week 1. Rice is as fragile as they come and any fantasy owner who takes a chance on him better be holding his lucky rabbit's foot. He caught 50 balls for 748 yards and seven touchdowns last season, but missed 17 of 32 games in the previous two campaigns.
Description: According to the Seattle Times, Seahawks GM John Schneider told The SiriusXM Blitz Monday that the team is prepared for "a huge, huge spectrum" of outcomes when it comes to Percy Harvin's hip injury.
Insight: Schneider said Harvin could be anywhere from practicing next week to undergoing season-ending surgery. He'll have a second opinion on his torn hip labrum Tuesday in New York.
Description: Sources tell USA Today that Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin does not need surgery on his injured hip.
Insight: Phew. If Harvin opted for surgery, he'd miss the whole season. Despite the good news, there's no guarantee Harvin will be ready for Week 1 versus Carolina. If Seattle places Harvin on the physically unable to perform list, he'd be required to miss the first six games of the season.
Description: If Seattle receiver Percy Harvin needs surgery to repair a torn hip labrum, he's likely to miss the entire 2013 season, reports Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com.
Insight: Harvin is seeking a second opinion on his hip after his first doctor recommended surgery. If he does need season-ending surgery, it could significantly alter the fantasy value of several players, including QB Russell Wilson and WRs Sidney Rice and Golden Tate.
Description: Seattle second-year back Robert Turbin is expected to take over third-down receiving duties (from Leon Washington who is now in New England) along with his backup rushing duties behind Marshawn Lynch, according to a Tacoma News Tribune report.
Insight: Turbin is a good late-draft gamble for those who select Lynch in the first round. It will also be good insurance should Lynch's legal troubles arrive earlier than expected.
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch's 2012 DUI arrest is still out there, but with a Dec 27 court date and the regular season ending on Dec 29, fantasy owners should not have to worry about him missing any time because of it.
Insight: Lynch had a monster season in 2012-13 with 1,590 rushing yards, 10 100-yard games and 12 total touchdowns. Fantasy owners can handcuff Robert Turbin in case of injury, but it appears they won't have to worry about a suspension.
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch still has a 2012 DUI arrest hanging over him, but it's appearing more and more likely that the case won't be decided until late 2013 or 2014, according to a Tacoma News Tribune report.
Insight: Lynch had a monster season in 2012-13 with 1,590 rushing yards, 10 100-yard games and 12 total touchdowns, so fantasy owners hope the outcome doesn't get decided until after this season is over. Fantasy owners might want to handcuff Robert Turbin just in case, but it might not be necessary.
Description: Three-time Pro Bowl cornerback Antoine Winfield has agreed to a deal to play with the Seattle Seahawks for next season.
Insight: The combination of Winfield, Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner is going to make it extremely tough for fantasy receivers in 2013-14. Factor this into any receiver you draft from the NFC West.
Description: Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that the Seahawks have signed quarterback Brady Quinn to a new contract.
Insight: Quinn actually started a few games for Kansas City last season but that won't happen in 2013 unless Russell Wilson suffers some kind of an injury. This probably isn't quite the career trajectory Quinn had been hoping for when he entered the league as a first round pick in 2007 but at least he's still getting a paycheck.
Description: Terrell Owens was spotted working out with New England quarterback Tom Brady Wednesday at USC's practice facility. SOURCE: ESPN Boston
Insight: Of course now the rumor is that Owens will be a Patriot in 2013. Bill Belichick has taken risks on high maintenance big names before (Corey Dillon, Albert Haynesworth, Randy Moss and Chad Johnson/Ochocinco to name a few) but keep in mind that Owens is almost 40 and he couldn't even make the Seahawks' 53-man roster last summer. T.O. playing for the Patriots looks like an extreme long shot at this point.
Description: According to Yahoo! Sports' Mike Silver, the Raiders have "legitimate" interest in Matt Flynn.
Insight: With a divorce with Carson Palmer looking more and more likely, the Raiders could be in the market for a quarterback, either through the draft or free agency. Flynn could very well have a starting job next season.
Description: Jay Glazer reports that the Vikings have traded wide receiver Percy Harvin to Seattle for a package of draft picks.
Insight: Harvin and head coach Leslie Frazier just couldn't work things out together in Minnesota so this was probably for the best. With Harvin, Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch anchoring the offense next season, the Seahawks are going to be tough to beat.
Description: Ian Rapoport from the NFL Network reports that the Seahawks would trade quarterback Matt Flynn before cutting him.
Insight: Arizona, Jacksonville and the New York Jets all have dicey QB situations right now and Flynn could provide stability on each of those fronts. Flynn inked a three-year deal with Seattle last offseason to become the franchise quarterback but that never materialized thanks to the brilliant play of Pro Bowl rookie Russell Wilson.
Description: Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson set an NFL postseason rookie record by throwing for 385 yards Sunday against the Falcons.
Insight: Wilson added 60 yards on the ground to finish with 445 total yards. That's one yard more than 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had in Saturday's blowout win against the Packers (263 yards passing, 181 rushing).
Description: Seattle halfback Marshawn Lynch struggled in Sunday's playoff loss to Atlanta.
Insight: Lynch had recorded five straight 100-yard games before Sunday's lackluster performance (46 yards and a lost fumble). Despite his struggles, Lynch was still able to find the end zone on Sunday. He's now scored at least once in three of his four career playoff games.
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch is probable for Sunday's matchup with Atlanta. Although he missed Wednesday practice that has been the usual plan for Lynch this season.
Insight: Lynch wasn't even mentioned by coach Pete Carroll while doing his Wednesday injury recap. Lynch has been unstoppable this season and the 132-yard day against Washington in the first round of the playoffs was just the latest chapter. He's a must start against a Falcons' run defense yielding 123.1 ypg.
Description: Seattle will sign kicker Ryan Longwell after he beat out Neil Rackers in a tryout. SOURCE: Ed Werder, ESPN
Insight: The Seahawks were in need of a kicker after Steven Hauschka suffered a strained calf muscle early in Sunday's Wild Card win over the Redskins. Longwell last kicked in 2011-12 for Minnesota, making 22-of-28 field goals. He has a career rate of 83.2 percent.
Description: Seahawks defensive end Chris Clemons is out for the year after tearing his ACL Sunday at Washington.
Insight: Clemons also suffered a torn meniscus. Coach Pete Carroll suggested that the poor field conditions at Fed Ex Field on Sunday may have contributed to Clemons' injury. Bruce Irvin is expected to fill in at defensive end Saturday in Atlanta.
Description: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson outperformed Robert Griffin III in a battle of rookie quarterbacks on Sunday. He finished with 187 yards and a touchdown on 15-of-26 passing.
Insight: He also had 67 yards rushing on eight carries. Wilson was sacked five times but he played well when his team needed him to in the fourth quarter. Next week Wilson will face the Falcons for the first time in his career.
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch continues to be listed on the Seahawks' injury report for a bad back, but we have no doubt that he's be ready to go into full "beast mode" when the whistle blows on Sunday in Washington.
Insight: Lynch rushed for a career-high 1,590 yards with 11 touchdowns this season and had either 85 yards rushing or a touchdown in 14 of 16 games. If it hadn't been for Adrian Peterson's remarkable season, many would have been talking MVP candidate for Lynch.
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson closed out a strong rookie season with 250 passing yards on 15-of-19 passing and one touchdown and 58 rushing yards and a touchdown on 10 carries Sunday against the Cardinals.
Insight: Wilson tied Peyton Manning's rookie passing touchdown record with 26. He added four rushing touchdowns and was a fantasy star in the second half with 1,652 passing yards, 361 rushing yards, 18 touchdowns and just three turnovers in his final eight games.
Description: Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman has won his appeal against the league and will not have to serve a four game suspension for use of performance enhancing drugs.
Insight: Sherman claimed his positive test result (he tested positive for Adderall) was the result of a broken cup and apparently the NFL agreed with him after hearing his side of the story. Sherman has had a terrific season (61 tackles, seven interceptions) and was recently included on ESPN expert John Clayton's list of Pro Bowl snubs.
Description: Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman will likely start Sunday night against the 49ers, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said. SOURCE: ProFootballTalk.com
Insight: Sherman had his appeal of a four-game suspension for violating the league's PED policy was heard on Friday but the league office has received no indication from the hearing officer that a ruling is imminent. A decision would have come Saturday to give Seattle a fair chance to activate a player from the practice squad. While Sherman has been a lockdown corner this year, fantasy owners can still start Michael Crabtree coming off a 107-yard, two-touchdown performance last Sunday at New England. Stevie Johnson and Brandon Marshall have both had 100-yard games against the Seahawks this month.
Description: Seattle wideout Sidney Rice looks like he'll be able to play Sunday but the team will have him test his knee out before the game. SOURCE: John Boyle, Everett Herald
Insight: With Seattle hosting San Francisco on Sunday night, it's going to be too risky to rely on Rice in Week 16. Fantasy owners could maybe justify waiting for Rice if he was playing a lesser defense but the 49ers are quite formidable.
Description: Seattle wideout Sidney Rice is questionable for Sunday night's game against San Francisco.
Insight: Rice didn't practice this week because of a knee injury and it's looking like he'll be a true game-time call Sunday against the Niners. The 8:20 start time worries us, especially with no Monday night game this week to fall back on. With many fantasy championships hanging in the balance this week, there's just too much risk here. Even if he plays, there's no guarantee Rice would have a good game against San Francisco's fifth-ranked passing defense.
Description: Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman will have his appeal of a four-game suspension held Friday. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: Sherman and fellow Seahawks CB Brandon Browner were suspended for four games at the end of November for violating the NFL's PED policy but both appealed (Browner dropped his appeal and started his suspension in Week 14). Seattle hosts San Francisco in Week 16, so WR Michael Crabtree's fantasy value could hinge on the results of Friday's hearing.
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson came threw Sunday when fantasy owners needed it most, throwing for 205 yards on 14-of-23 passing with a touchdown and rushing for 92 yards on nine carries with three more scores.
Insight: Wilson has 13 touchdown passes, three touchdown runs and just three turnovers in his last seven games.
Description: Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice (bruised foot) didn't practice Thursday but coach Pete Carroll said he expects the receiver to play Sunday versus Buffalo. SOURCE: Dave Mahler, KJR
Insight: Rice (658 yds, 7 TDs) shed his walking boot Thursday. While a matchup against the Bills sounds enticing, Buffalo has actually been much improved against the pass in the second half of the season, so a hobbled Rice does not make for a strong play Sunday.
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch finished with 128 yards and three rushing touchdowns in Seattle's 58-0 rout of Arizona Sunday.
Insight: Backup Robert Turbin also ran for 100 yards, and Leon Washington added a fourth rushing score. Lynch had to leave at one point Sunday due to a nagging back issue but he later returned. He's been playing through the tightness all season so it shouldn't be a major concern down the stretch.
Description: Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is likely to have his appeal date for a four-game suspension pushed back even further than Dec. 14. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: Sherman has emerged as a lockdown cornerback this season and is more important to Seattle's defense than No. 2 CB Brandon Browner, who has dropped his appeal and will start his suspension Sunday. Arizona WR Larry Fitzgerald remains a high-risk play in Week 14 against Sherman, even with John Skelton replacing Ryan Lindley at QB.
