On a day where Oakland Raiders defensive end Khalil Mack and wide receiver Amari Cooper (among several others) took a day of rest, running back Marshawn Lynch decided to put on a show for Raider Nation.
Lynch broke free twice during Tuesday’s practice, invigorating fans in attendance, per Oakland Tribune’s Jerry McDonald.

Perhaps the 31-year-old back wouldn’t have been able to find the same holes he was able to Tuesday if Mack was playing defense, but it is still a great sign that Lynch continues to demonstrate explosion in training camp.
