RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has undergone surgery to repair an injury related to a sports hernia and will be sidelined for three to four weeks.
    
Coach Pete Carroll confirmed Wednesday that Lynch underwent surgery in Philadelphia to repair an abdominal injury. Lynch traveled to Philadelphia on Monday to meet with Dr. William Meyers.
    
Carroll said Lynch will remain on the East Coast for several days to begin the recovery and will remain on the active roster in the hopes he can return late in the season.
    
Lynch was inactive for last week's win over San Francisco and played through the injury two weeks ago in a loss to Arizona.
    
Lynch missed 2½ games earlier this season with a hamstring injury. Rookie Thomas Rawls has filled in and ran for 209 yards last week against San Francisco, the second-best performance in franchise history.
