RENTON – Marshawn Lynch will play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said.

Lynch missed two days of practice during the week because of a sore knee but returned Friday.

Lynch is coming off season lows in carries (eight) and yards (23) against the Rams, and he became visibly frustrated after not getting the ball on three consecutive plays near the Rams’ goal line.

“He’s going to get more involved than he did last week, I’ll say that,” Carroll said. “That was not right, and we didn’t get that done. We have to play better so he has the opportunities.”

In the past three years, Lynch has rushed for less than 50 yards eight times. In the games immediately after that, Lynch has averaged 91 yards and scored six touchdowns.

Harvin out

Wide receiver Percy Harvin won’t play against Tampa Bay after experiencing soreness in his hip. Harvin returned to practice last week before having issues with his hip.

Carroll said Harvin, who had surgery on his hip before the season, recently had an MRI but added there were “no complications.”

“He was fine a week ago, ready to go,” Carroll said, “but the wear and tear of the comeback got him a little bit.”


• Safety Earl Thomas didn’t practice Friday because he was sick, but he’s expected to play.

• Offensive tackles Russell Okung and Breno Giacomini could return to practice Wednesday. Carroll said he isn’t sure when they will return to games.

• Defensive end Chris Clemons was voted the team’s recipient of the Ed Block Courage award, which is given to a player who has dealt with adversity. Clemons returned from an ACL injury in the playoffs last year.

• Lynch’s attorney, Ivan Golde, said the motion to dismiss Lynch’s DUI case was denied Friday. The trial is scheduled for Dec. 27.
