One day after Marshawn Lynch left the Seahawks' shutout win over the Bears with a hamstring injury, the news regarding Beast Mode is that there is no news.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll told the media Monday that Lynch has had an MRI and will re-evaluated later in the week. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the injury to Lynch's hamstring is considered minor, per a source informed of his condition.

Lynch went into the game as a game-time decision with a lingering calf issue, but the Seahawks ruled out their workhorse running back with the hamstring injury by halftime. He finished with just 14 yards on five carries.

Coach Pete Carroll said after the game that the injury is nothing to worry about.

"We've checked it all out, and there is nothing to be alarmed by," Carroll said. "So we'll just have to wait and see."

It's not a good sign that Lynch went into the game with one injury and left with another, which could suggest that he is beat up and has overall body fatigue. If the Seahawks went to get their offense in a nice rhythm against more competitive opponents than the Bears, they'll need Beast Mode to be at full strength.

Here are other injuries we are tracking:

1. Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy is unlikely to play against the New York Giants this weekend, as he continues to deal with a hamstring injury, a source briefed on the injury told Getlin.

The Bills did get some positive news to start Week 4. Rapoport reported that after tests Monday morning, Sammy Watkins was diagnosed with a mild calf strain and will be day-to-day, per a source informed of the injury. Bills coach Rex Ryan said it's possible Watkins won't play in Week 4 versus the Giants.

2. Packers WR Davante Adams injured his ankle during the first quarter of Monday night's game against the Chiefs. Rapoport reported that the wideout aggravated his ankle and might miss some time with the injury, per a source informed of the injury.

Tight end Andrew Quarless suffered a knee injury in the second quarter and did not return.

Defensive lineman Datone Jones is being evaluated for a concussion, the team announced after the game. Linebacker Jake Ryan has a hamstring injury.

3. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Ben Roethlisberger will be out "a number of weeks" with a sprained MCL. Roethlisberger left Sunday's game in the third quarter on a cart. Tomlin said he wouldn't have more details about the injury until at least Friday.

4. Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz (calf) said he will play Sunday against the Bills. Cruz said he ran about 20 routes on Monday.

6. Rapoport reported Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso, who suffered a partially torn ACL a few weeks ago, will get a final opinion from Dr. James Andrews on Monday. Rapoport added the injury could keep Alonso out a few weeks or it could require a re-do of the ACL surgery and knock him out for the remainder of the season.

Rapoport added that running back DeMarco Murray should be "ready to go" this week against the Redskins. Murray sat out Philadelphia's 24-17 win over the Jets with a hamstring injury.
