Shark Bites

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (finger) has returned to limited practice and was in pads on Tuesday, according to the Seattle Times' Bob Condotta. HC Pete Carroll said the rookie has a shot to be ready for the final preseason game. It sounds like Penny is on track to play in the regular-season opener, but he'll begin the year behind RB Chris Carson. Since news broke of Penny's finger injury, he's gone in the late 6th round of 12-team drafts.

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.

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 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 Monday that RB Rashaad Penny will practice this week as though he's going to play Sunday at Washington, according to ESPN's Brady Henderson. "We’ll see how that works out and we’ll figure it out at the end of the week," Carroll said, "but he’s going with the mentality that he’s up and eligible." Penny certainly won't be a fantasy option for Week 15 in his 1st game since last December's ACL tear. But his return could affect the playing time of other Seattle RBs.
