With a heavy contingent of competition at the running back position, and Fred Jackson the incumbent starter after a big 2009 season, Marshawn Lynch is just doing the most with the reps he gets in the practice setting.
“I’m sweating,” said Lynch when asked if he was getting his fair share of carries. “I’m just getting in where I can.”
Through the early days of camp Jackson has been getting the lion’s share of the work with the first unit, with Lynch being sprinkled in with the first unit here and there.
Asked if he is looking for a bigger role than he played last season when he had a career low 120 carries, Lynch left it in the hands of the coaching staff.
“Actually man they’re professionals at what they do too,” Lynch said. ”So I’m going to leave that to them and just come out and give what I’ve got every day. Whether they get me on the field, whether they have me playing the same role, whether they have me doing more, I’m cool with that.”
