RENTON, Wash. — Seahawks running back Eddie Lacy said Wednesday that he isn’t sure what his role will be in Seattle’s backfield going forward but that he’s preparing as if he will play.

Lacy was a surprise inactive for Sunday’s win against the San Francisco 49ers.

“You don’t like what happened or whatever, but at the end of the day, you can just control what you can control,” Lacy said, “continue to go out and practice and see how it goes.”
Lacy, who signed a one-year, $4.25 million contract with the Seahawks over the offseason, only played seven offensive snaps in a Week 1 loss to the Green Bay Packers, his former team. He gained 3 yards on five carries.

He said he was informed that he would be inactive against San Francisco by his position coach Sunday morning, before the team boarded the bus to head to CenturyLink Field.

“There’s no positive way to take it, but I was the most positive I could be,” he said. “It was my first time that happened to me or whatever, so I really don’t know what think of it, just do what I can do.”

Rookie Chris Carson has been Seattle’s primary running back over the first two games. He gained 93 yards on 20 carries on Sunday, while Thomas Rawls was being eased back into action in his first game back following an ankle injury. Carson’s emergence and Rawls’ return have added to the uncertainty about Lacy’s role.

“I’ve just got to continue to be me, go out and practice the same way I’ve been practicing and see what happens week by week,” Lacy said.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll described Lacy being inactive as a matchup-based decision and not one that’s indicative of the running back having fallen out of favor. He said Wednesday that Lacy has responded well over the last few days.

“He’s doing fine. He’s ready to get after it and compete and battle back,” Carroll said. “He respects Thomas Rawls. He understands. That’s not what he wants. I don’t want him to accept it, I want him to be wanting to get back out there with everything he’s got, and that’s exactly the way he should be competing. I wish we could have had him up. We could have used him.”

 NEW YORK — A former New York City police officer, whose claims of police corruption in the 1970s were chronicled in an Al Pacino movie, joined dozens of current and former officers Saturday at a rally in support of getting quarterback Colin Kaepernick a job in the NFL.
Kaepernick, the former starting quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, became a controversial figure last year after he refused to stand for the national anthem in what he called a protest against oppression of people of color.

He opted out of his contract in March and became a free agent, but so far no NFL teams have signed him for the upcoming season.

The gathering in Brooklyn featured about 75 mostly minority officers wearing black T-shirts reading “#imwithkap.”

One exception was retired officer Frank Serpico, whose exploits were featured in the 1973 film “Serpico.”

He admitted to not being a football fan but said he felt it was important to support Kaepernick for his stance.

“He’s trying to hold up this government, up to our founding fathers,” said Serpico, 81.

Sgt. Edwin Raymond, who said he was heading to work after the rally, spoke of the need for racial healing in the country.

“Until racism in America is no longer taboo, we own up to it, we admit it, we understand it and then we do what we have to do to solve it. Unfortunately we’re going to have these issues,” he said.

Marquise Goodwin paused: out of the track a year ago, so there is no information to the USADA

The United States Anti-Doping Agency suspended Marquise Goodwin on Tuesday for one year for failing to provide his whereabouts for drug testing, but the San Francisco 49ers wide receiver said in a statement that he is no longer competing in track and field.

USADA said in a statement that Goodwin received three whereabouts failures in a 12-month period. USADA requests the information from a select group of athletes for out-of-competition drug testing.

USADA said Goodwin’s suspension began on April 1, the date of his third whereabouts failure.

Goodwin, however, said in a statement provided by the 49ers that he decided to stop competing in track and field so he could focus on his football career and therefore did not supply his whereabouts information to USADA.

“Never in my life have I failed a test,” he said. “I have never been opposed to testing and, in fact, have always been compliant with each and every protocol and policy associated with my competitive career in track and field. More than a year ago, I decided to cease competing in the sport in order to concentrate 100 percent on my NFL career. Therefore, I discontinued all practices associated with competing in track and field, including submitting my ‘Whereabouts’ information.

Marquise Goodwin says he has given up on competing in track and field so he can focus fully on his NFL career.

Marquise Goodwin says he has given up on competing in track and field so he can focus fully on his NFL career.

“It appears that because I did not inform USADA of my plans, my name was inadvertently included in their 2017 testing pool. I greatly appreciate the support of the San Francisco 49ers and the National Football League as I work to clarify this matter,” he said in the statement.

The 49ers confirmed that Goodwin had given up his track and field career in order to fully concentrate on football. The team also said that the NFL will not discipline Goodwin under its policy against performance-enhancing drugs.

“Marquise informed our organization quite some time ago that he has no intentions of competing in track and field and has been entirely focused on his football career for more than a year. We have been in touch with the League office regarding this matter, and understand that Marquise will not be subject to discipline under the NFL Policy on Performance-Enhancing Substances as a result of USADA’s decision,” the team said in a statement.

Goodwin, 26, failed to qualify to compete at the 2016 Summer Olympics, when he finished seventh in the men’s long jump at the U.S. Olympic team trials in Eugene, Oregon, last July. He jumped 27 feet, ¾ inches, more than a foot short of Jeffrey Henderson’s winning jump of 28 2¼ inches.

Goodwin, who was with the Buffalo Bills when he competed in the trials, signed with the 49ers as a free agent, receiving a two-year, $6 million contract with $4.45 million guaranteed.

49ers plan to offer Kyle Shanahan head-coaching job

The San Francisco 49ers plan to offer their head-coaching job to Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan once Atlanta’s season ends, sources tell ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Shanahan is interested in the job but is currently focused on Sunday’s NFC Championship Game. The Falcons will host the Green Bay Packers.

The 49ers plan to request a second interview with Shanahan next week after the championship game, a source said. NFL rules allow a second interview following the conference championship.

New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels took himself out of the running on Monday, saying it wasn’t the right time and he was going to concentrate on New England’s Super Bowl run.

Seattle Seahawks assistant head coach/offensive line coach Tom Cable was also among the candidates considered by the 49ers, but his agent, Doug Hendrickson, tweeted Tuesday that Cable is “re-affirming” his commitment to the Seahawks and thanked the 49ers for their interest.

Shanahan, 37, is in his second season as Atlanta’s offensive coordinator. The Falcons, led by MVP candidate Matt Ryan, boasted the league’s top scoring offense this season, averaging 33.8 points per game.

Besides interviewing with the 49ers, he also talked to the Broncos and Jaguars about their head-coaching vacancies before Denver hired Vance Joseph and Jacksonville promoted Doug Marrone to fill their jobs.

Before joining the Falcons, Shanahan was the offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns (2014), Washington Redskins (2010-13) and Houston Texans (2008-09). He began his NFL coaching career in 2004 as an offensive quality control coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before joining the Texans in 2006 as a wide receivers coach. He was the team’s quarterbacks coach in 2007 before being promoted to offensive coordinator the next season.

Shanahan is the son of longtime NFL coach Mike Shanahan, who hired his son as the Redskins’ offensive coordinator when he was the team’s head coach.

The 49ers are seeking to replace Chip Kelly, who was fired as coach after just one season. San Francisco, which finished 2-14 last season, holds the No. 2 pick in the 2017 draft.

The 49ers are also in need of a new general manager after firing Trent Baalke after the season.
