The Seattle Seahawks already face a tough road test against the undefeated Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday. And, unfortunately for Seattle, Friday’s injury report just made it even tougher.

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has been ruled out for a second straight week with a hamstring injury.

Lynch only has played in parts of three games this season due to the nagging injury. He has a total of 128 rushing yards and no touchdowns on 38 carries.

Rookie Thomas Rawls took over at running back in Monday’s 13-10 win over the Detroit Lions. He has 157 rushing yards on 35 carries this season. Seattle coach Pete Carroll also said Fred Jackson could see time at running back Sunday.
