The Seahawks placed RB Rashaad Penny (knee) on the active/PUP list. No surprise here. Penny is still rehabbing from last December's torn ACL and is a candidate for the reserve/PUP list, which would cost him the first 6 games of the season. He's only worth considering in fantasy drafts over 20 rounds. Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde figure to open the season as Seattle's top 2 RBs.

Stop us if you've heard this before, but Seahawks HC Pete Carroll is optimistic for RB Rashaad Penny's return from his ACL repair. "I would think he's ahead of schedule for maybe what they could have predicted, maybe the middle of the season," Carroll said Friday on 710 AM ESPN Radio. "I think he's going to push for sooner than that. He's had a great offseason under these circumstances, and he looks really good right now. So hopefully we can expect him to be available maybe not in the next couple of weeks, but not too far off." Penny would be a nice stash -- especially if you have an IR spot available -- within the next few weeks.

The Seahawks placed RB Rashaad Penny (knee) on the reserve/PUP list. That means he's out for at least the first 6 games of the season. This was expected after Penny tore his ACL last December. Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde will open the season as Seattle's top 2 RBs.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll implied during a Thursday radio interview that RB Rashaad Penny (ACL) is likely to begin the season on the PUP list, per The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta. "He's doing great but it was a late-season injury," Carroll said. Penny tore his ACL on December 8, giving him 9 months to get ready for Week 1. Landing on PUP would cost him at least the first 6 games of the season -- and turn RB Chris Carson into a workhorse. Carson is rehabbing last December's fractured hip but "will be ready" for the start of the season, according to Carroll.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll admitted that RB Rashaad Penny's availability for the start of the 2020 season is in question. He tore multiple ligaments, including the ACL, in his left knee on December 8. "He’s got six or seven months ahead of him that are going to be really challenging," Carroll said. "We’ll have to wait and see." Penny remains a solid dynasty hold but is just a flier in the double-digit rounds of early best-ball drafts.

The knee injury that ended Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny's season was "more than just a normal ACL" tear, HC Pete Carroll said. Penny is facing an "extensive recovery," Carroll added. A clean ACL tear would have given Penny a decent chance to be ready for the start of the 2020 campaign -- but this news makes that a lot more iffy. We'll keep a close eye on his rehab.
