Seattle Seahawks NEWS: Kam Chancellor Will Play Against Chicago Bears

Kam Chancellor

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears, coach Pete Carroll announced.

Chancellor ended his 54-day holdout Wednesday, returning in time for for practice that day and Thursday, the week's hardest days.

Carroll said the team would not disclose any financial information.

Chancellor reported to the team Wednesday after missing all of training camp, four preseason games and two regular-season games while seeking a new contract.

Sunday's home opener against the Bears kicks off at 1:25pm and you can hear it on KPUG 1170AM. With Cutler on the shelf, the starting job goes to Jimmie Clausen, a quarterback not exactly ready to strike fear in the minds of opposing secondaries.

"He looked great both days", Carroll said, "so he looks like he's going to be able to play some football". "He knows where he is supposed to go, but the practice is important - there is something to that". Some guys can handle it a little better than others, and I think Kam's one of those guys.

According to, Carroll announced to reporters on Friday that Lynch is dealing with a bruised calf and is a "game-time" decision for the Bears game.

Of course, with the Seahawks now sitting at 0-2 after frustrating losses to the St. Louis Rams and Green Bay Packers on the road, Graham certainly isn't happy with where his team is at for the season, having come to Seattle with hopes of being a part of another championship team.

Carroll said the Seahawks will monitor Chancellor to make sure they aren't asking him to play too much as he sees his first live action since the Super Bowl last February 1. "He'll run tomorrow and we'll see if he's OK".
