Turbin didn't record a touch over three games -- two in the postseason -- with the Seahawks. Turbin signed with the team after Chris Carson (hip), Rashaad Penny (knee) and C.J. Prosise (arm) were ruled out for the season, but it was Marshawn Lynch and rookie Travis Homer who led the backfield the rest of the way. The 30-year-old Turbin only played two games in 2018 with the Colts as well, and he'll be an unrestricted free agent in March.
Turbin didn't play an offensive snap in Sunday's 26-21 loss to the 49ers. Turbin was brought in to add depth to a depleted Seahawks backfield, but rookie Travis Homer and Marshawn Lynch were the only running backs to get any tread. This isn't surprising, considering Turbin hasn't played since last season when he totaled just four carries over two games with the Colts. Considering Homer and Lynch were both solid, Turbin likely will stick to special teams in the wild-card round Sunday in Philadelphia.
Coach Pete Caroll said Turbin and Marshawn Lynch will play in Sunday's game against the 49ers, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. Carroll didn't elaborate on how backfield snaps and touches might be divided. Travis Homer should probably be viewed as the favorite to lead the team in carries, but it won't come as any huge surprise if the veterans also get involved. Neither Turbin nor Lynch had spent time with an NFL team in 2019 prior to signing with Seattle this week.
Turbin signed with the Seahawks on Tuesday. Turbin was expected to sign with the Seahawks, and he did just that Tuesday. Seattle's running back situation is in flux with Turbin, Marshawn Lynch and Travis Homer the team's only healthy ball carriers, so it remains to be seen what type of role Turbin will play in Week 17 and into the postseason.
Turbin is expected to sign with the Seahawks, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Turbin will reunite with his former team, for which he picked up 928 rushing yards across three seasons. The 30-year-old figures to play an immediate role after Chris Carson (hip) and C.J. Prosise (arm) both suffered season-ending injuries Sunday. However, the Seahawks are still pursuing Marshawn Lynch as well, which could impact the amount of reps Turbin receives.
