NFL notes: Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch may miss Sunday due to injury

Ap

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is listed as questionable to play Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.

A week after rushing for 140 yards and four touchdowns against the New York Giants, Lynch was held out of practice until Friday with calf and rib injuries.

“He’s just banged up,” coach Pete Carroll said. “In years past we’ve always given him a lot of consideration to get him right and he’s worked hard to make sure he stays abreast of what he can do, and he practiced well today.”

Lynch was a full participant in Friday’s practice. Lynch frequently gets one or two days of rest during the week and still typically is in the lineup for games. He’s missed just one game due to injury in his five years with the Seahawks.

Dolphins place corner Davis on IR

Miami Dolphins reserve cornerback Will Davis, a Central Valley High grad, will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury suffered in the team’s victory over Buffalo.

Davis will go on injured reserve, coach Joe Philbin said Friday. Davis was hurt making a tackle on kick coverage during the second half of Miami’s 22-9 victory.

Ryan fined $100,000 for profanities

Jets coach Rex Ryan has been fined $100,000 for his postgame use of profanity that was picked up on video last Sunday.

After the Jets beat the Steelers 20-13, Ryan could be seen yelling agitatedly while walking onto the field to meet Steelers coach Mike Tomlin. Ryan has been fined twice in the past for public obscenities and was considered a repeat offender by the league.

Packers to debut self-serve beer

The Green Bay Packers will debut a serve-yourself beer station at Sunday’s home game against Philadelphia.

The Packers say the machine gives fans more leeway in the amount of beer they drink, since they can pour only a few ounces if they choose. The self-serve machine has the same purchase limits as beer bought at concession stands at Lambeau Field.

After showing proof of legal drinking age, fans can buy $20 beer cards at a cashier. After again showing an ID, fans then swipe the card at the machine.

Taylor out for season with knee injury

Cleveland Browns defensive lineman Phil Taylor will miss the rest of the season with a right knee injury.

Coach Mike Pettine said the fourth-year pro is scheduled to undergo surgery next week, and he was placed on injured reserve. Pettine said Taylor should be healthy for the start of training camp.

Cleveland added linebacker Keith Pugh.
