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 RBs Rashaad Penny (hamstring) and Travis Homer (calf) are out for Monday night's game vs. Washington. HC Pete Carroll said Saturday that rookie RB Josh Johnson might be promoted from the practice squad, but RBs Alex Collins and DeeJay Dallas will handle the majority of the backfield work.
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 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.
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.
