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 (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.
