RENTON, Wash. (AP) - The absence of Marshawn Lynch from Seattle Seahawks training camp means opportunity for Robert Turbin and Christine Michael.
Turbin and Michael were already going to get the bulk of the work during the preseason with Lynch being prepped for the grind of the regular season.
But with Lynch holding out, Turbin and Michael are getting a greater opportunity to show they can handle the load.
Seattle has a pretty good idea what Turbin can provide. He's entering his third year and has proven a capable spot backup for Lynch. Michael is the curiosity.
Entering his second season, Michael is a mix of power and speed that barely saw the field last season as a rookie as he struggled with the transition from college to the pros. But coaches can't stop raving about Michael's offseason work.
