Raiders use last IR-return spot on Penn instead of Lynch
As a result, Marshawn Lynch's season is officially over. The running back was placed on IR in October after suffering a groin injury and was eligible to return on Christmas Eve for the team's Week 16 game against the Denver Broncos.
Lynch is out of contract after signing a two-year deal with Oakland to come out of retirement in 2017, so his NFL future will be one of the major storylines of the Raiders' offseason.
The five-time Pro Bowler rushed for 376 yards and three touchdowns before his injury.
