The Seahawks' fears were confirmed, and Lynch will have surgery to combat his sports hernia injury. Seattle will not rule out Lynch returning before the end of the season, but around four to five weeks is the expected minimum time Lynch would miss. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: Lynch's fantasy season is likely over. If your league runs into Week 17, it's possible Lynch will be back. With the success of Thomas Rawls, however, it seems unlikely that Seattle will rush Lynch back. Lynch has a history of recovering from injuries at an extraordinary rate. It's worth holding onto him if you don't need the roster spot, but Lynch is droppable in all leagues.
