Seahawks’ Lynch misses practice with foot injury
By Liz Mathews
Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch did not participate in practice. Unlike most weeks when he is given a rest day for his balky back, Lynch was listed on Wednesday’ practice report with a foot injury.
Cornerback Byron Maxwell and safety Jeron Johnson also sat out practice with hamstring issues.
No Seahawks players were listed as limited and no one has been officially ruled out yet for Sunday’s divisional-round game against Atlanta.
For the Falcons, only two players missed practice: cornerback Christopher Owens (hamstring) and safety Charles Mitchell (calf).
The Seahawks placed defensive end Chris Clemons and kicker Steven Hauschka on injured reserve Wednesday. Defensive end Patrick Chukwurah and kicker Ryan Longwell were signed in their place.
Clemons suffered a season-ending knee injury Sunday but has yet to undergo surgery. Hauschka, unable to kick off a result of a calf strain, would have been ruled out for this weekend in Atlanta.
The team also released defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga from the practice squad, replacing him with defensive tackle Myles Wade, who spent part of 2012 with Tampa Bay.
