Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny had knee surgery this offseason to "get something cleaned up," HC Pete Carroll said Tuesday. Penny isn't participating in minicamp, but the always-optimistic Carroll expects him to be ready for the start of training camp. Penny missed all but 3 games last season after tearing multiple ligaments in his left knee in December of 2019. It's a concern that he's still having issues with that knee. And at this point, it's unclear if he'll regain pre-injury form. Penny is just a late-round dart in fantasy drafts, while RB Chris Carson remains a safe bet for nice volume this season.

The Seahawks re-signed RB Chris Carson to a 2-year deal worth "up to" $14.6 million, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. We'll see how much guaranteed money Carson is getting, but it's a contract that clearly says he's returning as the starter. The 26-year-old has averaged 16.2 carries and 2.9 targets per game over the last 3 seasons and figures to be looking at similar volume in 2021. Carson's return crushes RB Rashaad Penny's fantasy value.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Rams. That can only be good news for Chris Carson, after Penny got a near-even work split in Week 17. Look for Carson to re-emerge as the clear backfield leader in today's game. RB DeeJay Dallas is a healthy scratch as well, leaving only Carson and Carlos Hyde in the backfield.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny has been added to the injury report as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Rams with a knee issue. He, of course, just returned a few weeks ago from his December 2019 torn ACL. Penny's absence this weekend would leave Seattle with RBs Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde and DeeJay Dallas -- with Alex Collins potentially being elevated from the practice squad.

Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the 49ers with a non-COVID illness. Rashaad Penny will step in as Seattle's #2 RB, but RB Chris Carson should pick up a few extra touches with Hyde out.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is expected to make his 2020 debut against Washington on Sunday, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. It'll be Penny's 1st action since tearing his ACL a little over a year ago. He shouldn't significantly impact RB Chris Carson's volume in this one, but we'll monitor the situation.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said after Sunday's loss to the Giants that RB Chris Carson's foot injury still isn't fully healed. "He's making it to the game is what he's doing it right now," Carroll said. "His foot is still sore but he can play, so you can see, he looked good, but it's just not 100 percent and so we're trying to not overload him." Carson played 58% of Seattle's offensive snaps and handled 13 carries with 6 targets vs. New York. That's a solid workload -- but it sounds like it might not grow much from there. "He's not to the point where we can just let him stay out there and keep on going and let's run him 25-30 times and see what happens, so we're still trying to bring him along," Carroll said.

Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde (toe) is active for today’s game against the Packers. HC Pete Carroll said this week that RB Chris Carson will get more work today after being eased back into the mix against the Eagles last Monday night. That leaves Hyde as just a desperation fantasy play.

Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde (toe) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Giants after getting in limited practices on Wednesday and Friday. HC Pete Carroll expects Hyde to play -- but also said that RB Chris Carson will get more work this week after being eased back into the mix against the Eagles last Monday night. Hyde isn't looking like a viable Week 13 fantasy play.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (foot) isn't listed on the final Week 12 injury report. He put in a full practice on Saturday and should return as Seattle's lead back on Monday night vs. the Eagles. Consider him a RB2 with upside in a difficult individual matchup vs. Philly's 11th-ranked RB defense -- but in a game that should be high-scoring.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (foot) has put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. HC Pete Carroll has said that he expects Carson back for Monday night’s game against the Eagles, but we’ll see what he does on Saturday and how he’s listed on the final injury report.

Seahawks RBs Chris Carson (foot) and Travis Homer (hand) are inactive for tonight's game against the Cardinals. Seattle elevated RB Bo Scarbrough, rather than RB Alex Collins, from the practice squad. So it'll be Scarbrough, Carlos Hyde and DeeJay Dallas in the backfield. We're expecting Hyde to lead the way in carries with Dallas handling most of the pass-catching work.

The Seahawks list RB Chris Carson (foot) as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Cardinals. He didn't practice all week, though, and ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Carson is "unlikely" to play. RB Carlos Hyde (hamstring) put in a full practice on Wednesday and isn't listed on the final injury report. Assuming Carson is out, Hyde figures to serve as Seattle's lead back vs. Arizona.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that RB Carlos Hyde (hamstring) is ahead of RB Chris Carson (foot) in their rehabs. "I expect Carlos to make it for this week," Carroll said. And of Carson: "Chris is working to get back. He's trying to make it." We'll keep an eye on the situation over the next few days, but it sounds like there's a chance that Hyde is Seattle's lead back vs. the Cardinals on Thursday night.

The Seahawks have downgraded RBs Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring) to out for Sunday's game against the Rams. That keeps DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer as the backfield leaders for the game with the 2nd-highest over/under for the week (54.5 points). Seattle also activated RB Alex Collins from the practice squad on Saturday.

Seahawks RBs Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring) are listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Rams. Carson missed practice all week, while Hyde got in a limited workout on Friday. “We think Chris has a chance if we don’t overdo it early,” HC Pete Carroll said Friday. “So we decided not to put him on the field today. He still worked and ran and all of that. Carlos, this was a chance for him to show and he looked pretty good today.” Both guys are reportedly game-time decisions. We’ll see if we get an update on this backfield on Sunday morning. Seahawks-Rams doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET.

Seahawks RBs Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring) remained sidelined on Wednesday. HC Pete Carroll called Carson "uncertain" for this weekend's game vs. the Rams. Seattle's backfield devolved into a 3-man committee with DeeJay Dallas, Travis Homer and Alex Collins last week.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll told 950 KJR Radio in Seattle on Monday that he expects RBs Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring) to return to practice this week. Carroll indicated the team would judge whether each player is ready to return for Sunday's game against the Rams. We'll keep an eye on their participation and status leading up to Week 10.

Seahawks RBs Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring) have been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Bills. The team is expected to promote RB Alex Collins from the practice squad, per Adam Schefter. Collins will join DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer in the backfield. Dallas might not get the 23 touches he racked up last week, but he’s the best bet in the backfield and is in the RB2 mix for Week 9.

After missing practice all last week, Seahawks RBs Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring) remained sidelined on Wednesday. Both guys are iffy for this weekend's game against the Bills. If they sit again, rookie DeeJay Dallas would get another game as Seattle's lead back.
