The Seahawks have ruled running back Marshawn Lynch out for the Monday night game against the Lions.

Seattle announced the status change following the team's walkthrough practice on Sunday. Lynch had been listed as questionable.

Lynch injured one of his hamstrings late in the first half of Seattle's 26-0 win over Chicago last Sunday. Lynch was hurt catching a fourth-down pass just before halftime.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Lynch had an MRI on the injury earlier this week but did not elaborate.

It will be just the second game Lynch has missed since joining the Seahawks in 2010 and the first since the 2011 season.

Rookie Thomas Rawls of Flint, who rushed for 104 yards last week in Lynch's absence, will likely get the start against the Lions.
