Rashaad Penny Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2021

Most Recent Shark Bites

Seahawks RBs Alex Collins (groin) and Rashaad Penny (calf) are active for tonight's game vs. the Saints. Collins got in just 1 limited practice this week, so it's safe to assume he's not at 100% tonight. It's Penny's 1st game since Week 1. RBs DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer are also active for Seattle.

As expected, the Seahawks have activated RB Rashaad Penny from IR. That makes him available to play against the Saints tonight. We certainly expect him to factor into the backfield work. Penny would get an upside boost if Alex Collins turns up inactive. He's questionable with a groin injury, but HC Pete Carroll said after Saturday's practice that Collins "looked good today, so he's ready to go," according to the team website. We'd bet on Collins leading the backfield tonight after he performed surprisingly well at Pittsburgh.

Seahawks RB Alex Collins (groin) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Saints. He only got in a limited practice on Saturday, but HC Pete Carroll said he'll play on Monday. "He looked good today so he's ready to go," Carroll said Saturday. "We were planning on giving him a break on the first day anyway, we just gave him one more just to bounce back and he looked fine, so he'll be part of the rotation." That "rotation" figures to include RB Rashaad Penny, who's expected to be activated from IR for this game. It's a murky backfield for fantasy purposes this week.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (calf) was designated to return from IR on Friday. He's now eligible to play vs. the Saints on Monday night -- and it sounds like he will. “I’m ready to go. I’m revved up. I’m excited,” Penny said. “I’m still young. I’m fresh. And I’m ready to go, and now’s the chance for me to show it.” OC Shane Waldron, meanwhile, said Penny returned from his calf injury in "great shape." He might step right into a significant role on Monday night with RB Alex Collins dealing with a groin injury.

So much for Seahawks RB Alex Collins practicing on Thursday, as HC Pete Carroll said. Collins did not practice, according to the team's official injury report. He's listed with a groin, rather than the previously reported hip and glute injuries. Collins' availability for Monday night's game vs. the Saints is uncertain. We're still waiting to see if RB Rashaad Penny (calf) will be activated for that one.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said RB Alex Collins (hip, glute) will practice on Thursday. That presumably puts him on track to play vs. the Saints on Monday night, but we'll keep an eye on him over the next few days. Collins has handled 35 carries and 4 targets over the last 2 weeks but might need to contend with the return of RB Rashaad Penny on Monday

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that RB Rashaad Penny (calf) will be "back to full speed" this week, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times. That sure makes it sound like Penny will at least be in the mix to play against the Saints on Monday night. We'll see about his official activation from IR and his practice participation throughout the week. Injuries to Chris Carson and Alex Collins present opportunity and further muddy the backfield outlook for Seattle.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that RB Alex Collins (hip, glute) has a chance to play against the Saints this weekend. That's not exactly a ringing endorsement from the usually optimistic Carroll. We'll monitor Collins' status throughout this week. We'll also keep an eye on RB Rashaad Penny (calf), who's eligible to come off IR this week. DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer are Seattle's other RBs right now.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Friday that RB Chris Carson's status for Week 6 is uncertain due to a lingering neck injury. “This is a day-to-day thing with Chris. We have to see how he responds. The short week did not help him at all," Carroll said. "He’s got an old injury that you can see (in exams). It’s kind of, I don’t know if it’s chronic, but it occasionally pops up. It hasn’t been an issue in the past. He didn’t get hit, and that’s how he got hurt. It’s a condition he’s got probably from weightlifting and all of the stuff he’s done over the years. It could have been something a long time ago. It’s just flared up some, so we’re being real careful with him. He was too uncomfortable to play.” We'll keep an eye on Carson when the Seahawks get back to work next week. RB Alex Collins operated as Seattle's lead back with Carson out on Thursday night. Note that RB Rashaad Penny (calf) is eligible to come off IR in Week 7.

The Seahawks placed RB Rashaad Penny (calf) on IR. He's out until at least Week 7. RB Chris Carson will continue to dominate carries in the meantime, but he's been losing passing-down snaps to RBs Travis Homer and Alex Collins.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (calf) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Vikings. RB Chris Carson will dominate carries again -- although he lost some passing-game work to RB Travis Homer last week.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (calf) is inactive for today’s game against the Titans. His absence should mean a few extra touches for RB Chris Carson. RBs DeeJay Dallas, Travis Homer and Alex Collins are active behind Carson.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (calf) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Titans. His absence should mean a few extra touches for RB Chris Carson.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny aggravated an existing calf injury Sunday and is expected to be "shut down for a few weeks to fully heal." Don't be surprised if Seattle puts him on IR, which carries a 3-week minimum stay at this point. Penny's absence obviously leaves some opportunity for DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer, but Chris Carson was the only Seattle back to reach 10 snaps in the opener (he played 42). He might get the biggest boost from the Penny injury by virtue of his clear path to a workhorse-level role.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny injured his left calf in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Colts and did not return. HC Pete Carroll said afterward that Penny’s calf was tight and that they decided to hold him out as a precaution. We’ll keep an eye on Seattle’s #2 RB this coming week.
