Seahawks | Trying to figure out Leon Washington

The Seattle Seahawks are giving RB Leon Washington a healthy dose of carries in the preseason to see how he fits into their running game this year. RB Marshawn Lynch is expected to be the team's workhorse at tailback, but they want to do their best in the preseason to see how Washington fits in. Washington will once again have a big role on special teams this year. "We're just going to continue to play him back into his playing form. We love him. We love what he does, but think he just needs reps in this zone scheme that we're running and so he can show us where he's special and unique in our stuff. It's just going to be a matter of time," head coach Pete Carroll said. How his role will impact that of backup RB Justin Forsett has to be determined. Carroll noted the team has total confidence in Forsett.
