According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the NFL won’t suspend Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch right now.

“Running back Marshawn Lynch, one of the Seahawks’ most important players who received a contract extension in the offseason, has been informed he is not facing any immediate discipline for his DUI arrest, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Lynch was arrested in July, and has faced off the field issues in the past, making him a potential candidate for suspension.

“Lynch already had his meeting with Commissioner Roger Goodell in response to the latest incident, sources said, and the league is not suspending him. The NFL will wait for the legal case to be resolved — which is likely going to occur some time in 2013 — so Lynch is in the clear this season. Should he get arrested again, or run afoul of the law, things could change, and the league reserves the right to reconsider matters,” reported La Canfora.

This is great news for the Seahawks and Lynch, unless things don’t go well for him in a court of law.
