Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (hernia) is not listed on the final Week 2 injury report. He put in full practices on Wednesday and Friday and a limited workout on Thursday. Walker is ready to make his NFL debut vs. the 49ers this weekend, although we’re expecting him to work behind RB Rashaad Penny.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (hernia) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That puts him on track to play vs. the 49ers this weekend. Walker figures to play well behind RB Rashaad Penny in his NFL debut, so he's not a recommended Week 2 fantasy play. But the talented rookie could quickly earn a significant role and should be rostered in leagues of 10+ teams.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Tuesday that RB Kenneth Walker (hernia) will play in this weekend's game vs. the 49ers. We'll wait to see if Walker gets on the practice field this week before adding him to the Week 2 Rankings. If Walker plays, he figures to debut as the clear #2 RB behind Rashaad Penny.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny handled 12 of 13 team RB carries and all 3 RB targets in a Week 1 win over Denver. Note that rookie Kenneth Walker sat this one out with a hernia. Penny, meanwhile, proved efficient with 5.0 yards per carry, but he did fumble after getting stripped at the end of a 26-yard gain. (Wisely, he wasn't benched.) All in all, it was an encouraging showing from a guy that took the league by storm late last year. We'll see if Walker’s able to return to practice this week.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (hernia) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Broncos. He was listed as questionable but didn't practice all week. We're not counting on Walker making it back for Week 2 but will monitor his progress. RB Rashaad Penny should handle the vast majority of early-down work tonight. RBs DeeJay Dallas and/or Travis Homer figure to steal pass-catching work.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (hernia) didn't practice all week but is for some reason listed as questionable for Monday night's opener vs. the Broncos. Walker is highly unlikely to play in that one and should be on fantasy benches. Look for Rashaad Penny to operate as Seattle's lead back, with Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas mixing in on passing downs.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (hernia) did not practice on Thursday. The rookie is a long shot to play in Monday night's opener vs. the Broncos. That'll leave RB Rashaad Penny as Seattle's clear lead runner.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said RB Kenneth Walker (hernia) "worked some" in Monday's practice and that his status for next Monday night's opener vs. the Broncos is uncertain. We'll track Walker's status this week but would be a little surprised if he's able to play 3.5 weeks after surgery. It at least sounds like the rookie is making progress and should debut at some point in September.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (hernia) "feels way better," HC Pete Carroll said Tuesday. "He’s moving around," Carroll added. "It’s just going to be one day at a time.” We still don't have the details on Walker's surgery -- Carroll called it "uncharted territory" -- but it at least sounds like he's trending in the right direction. Walker's status for the season opener is still in doubt, though.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll gave up an update on RB Kenneth Walker's recovery from hernia surgery on Sunday and didn't sound as optimistic as he did last week. “He’s still pretty tender,” Carroll said. “I was with him today. He’s got some things to heal, to go in and do what they did. So, it’s just a matter of time, but we don’t have a designated sequence yet. We’ll have to see how he responds.” It sounds like Walker isn't a lock to be ready for Week 1, as had been reported originally. Look for Rashaad Penny to operate as Seattle's lead back for at least the first few weeks of the season.

"The plan is for [Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker] to be out there Week 1 if all goes well," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "Walker underwent surgery to repair a hernia — not what is sometimes called a 'sports hernia' or core muscle injury — and he’s expected to make a full recovery," Rapoport adds. We'll track Walker's rehab. But, considering the rookie will miss the rest of the preseason and a bunch of practice time, he won't be a viable Week 1 fantasy option. RB Rashaad Penny's early-season fantasy stock gets a boost with the news.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Wednesday that rookie RB Kenneth Walker is having a "procedure" but that his injury is not a sports hernia, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. We'll watch for word on how long the team expects him to be out.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Tuesday that RB Kenneth Walker has "a little hernia thing that he’s working on." Added Carroll, "we’ve got to get through that. So I don’t know what to tell you yet, but it’s something that we can attend to and all that ... We’ve just got to make sure that he’s OK by the opener is what we’re shooting for.” Hopefully Walker doesn't need surgery, which would certainly cost him the start of the season. We'll look for updates on the rookie's status.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll complimented rookie RB Kenneth Walker. Carroll really focused on Walker’s improvement in pass protection. "He could play all three downs, and we'd feel comfortable with it,” Carroll shared. Rashaad Penny is currently batting a minor goin injury, but the veteran remains on track to start Week 1. How long that lasts, however, is certainly in question. Neither guy projects for big pass volume -- but the 3rd-down/receiving down role appears up for grabs here.

John Boyle of The Seahawks’ official site writes that RB Kenneth Walker has “shown off his pass-catching ability” in training camp. It’s noteworthy, as the rookie exited college with only 19 career catches in 3 seasons. Rashaad Penny is currently seeing the bulk of Seattle’s 1st-team reps, but this backfield has the potential to be fluid all season.

SI.com's Corbin K. Smith reports that Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny "showed up for camp in peak condition." The RB reportedly credits running sprints in the sand for "his improved conditioning and health," particularly in his surgically repaired knee and hamstrings. We'll see what comes of further camp reports on Penny and then any preseason action. But signs have pointed to the late-2021 stud getting 1st shot to lead this year's backfield in touches -- ahead of 2nd-round rookie Kenneth Walker.
