RENTON, Wash. -- Marshawn Lynch has joined Seattle Seahawks training camp after missing the first week.

Lynch arrived on Thursday afternoon following the team's morning practice. The team confirmed Lynch has reported for camp, ending a holdout that spanned a week.

ESPN reported earlier Thursday that Lynch was expected to end his holdout. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said after practice that he did not know if Lynch was on the verge of reporting.

Lynch has missed the first week of training camp unhappy with his contract status. Lynch is scheduled to make $5 million in base salary for 2014 with additional roster bonuses available. It's the third year of a four-year deal Lynch signed before the 2012 season.

With Lynch away, the Seahawks have let Robert Turbin and Christine Michael get the bulk of carries during camp.
