RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Running back Marshawn Lynch has rejoined the Seattle Seahawks as he continues to recover from abdominal surgery last month.

Lynch was at the team's facility earlier this week and coach Pete Carroll said on Friday that it will be "week-to-week" regarding when Lynch might rejoin practice.

"We'll see what happens next week," Carroll said.

Lynch underwent surgery on Nov. 25 for an injury related to a sports hernia. He played through it in Week 10 against Arizona, then sat out the following week versus San Francisco.

Between the surgery and a hamstring injury earlier in the season Lynch has missed 5 ½ games. Rookie Thomas Rawls has filled in for Lynch and is on pace for a 1,000-yard season, averaging 5.6 yards per carry.

Carroll also said tight end Jimmy Graham has rejoined the team following surgery to repair a torn patellar tendon suffered in Week 12 vs. Pittsburgh.

The Seahawks are 7-5 and in contention for a wild-card spot.
