The Seattle Seahawks downgraded running back Marshawn Lynch and defensive tackle Brandon Mebane to out for the game Monday night against the Detroit Lions.

Seattle announced the status changes following the team's walk-through Sunday. Lynch and Mebane had both been listed as questionable after Saturday's final practice.

Lynch injured one of his hamstrings late in the first half of Seattle's 26-0 victory over Chicago on Sept. 27. Lynch was hurt catching a fourth-down pass just before halftime.

Coach Pete Carroll said Lynch had a magnetic resonance imaging exam on the injury earlier this week but did not elaborate. It will be only the second game Lynch has missed since joining the Seahawks in 2010 and the first since the 2011 season.

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

Mebane suffered a groin injury against the Bears and did not practice all week.

• NOT WORRIED AT ALL: Miami coach Joe Philbin said he talked to Dolphins owner Steve Ross after Sunday's 27-14 loss to the New York Jets in London and said their conversation "went well." Philbin said he's not worried about his job security despite the team's 1-3 start. "No, not at all," he said.
