Seahawks bring back Robert Turbin, Marshawn Lynch after losing numerous running backs to injury
The Seahawks are turning back the clock on the running back position
Turbin spent his first three seasons in Seattle after being drafted by the Seahawks in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
The Seahawks are in desperate need of help at the running back position after likely losing C.J. Prosise (broken arm) and Chris Carson (hip injury) for the rest of the season during the 27-13 loss they suffered to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16. Second-year running back Rashaad Penny had already been lost for the year with a torn ACL, and Travis Homer is the only other player listed on the depth chart at running back.
Turbin played in 48 games with the Seahawks and rushed for a total of 928 yards. The Utah State product also caught 43 passes for 427 yards and two touchdowns. He was waived with an injury settlement in 2015, and then found himself with the Cleveland Browns for three games. Turbin also spent time with the Dallas Cowboys and Indianapolis Colts. The 30-year-old has not played in a game since Oct. 14, 2018.
Seattle is currently 11-4 with one game remaining against the NFC West rival San Francisco 49ers, who they trail by just one game. Those two teams plus the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints are jockeying for the top two playoff spots in the NFC.
