News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Tue Nov 12): Penny had a costly fumble and the Seahawks went away from him after. It's fair to wonder if he is even the primary backup at this point.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 10 vs SF (2 / 2 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Penny only had a couple of carries, but he coughed one up as he charged up the middle. Still a lot of talent, still only a handcuff to Carson, who got the rest of the carries.
2019 Week 9 vs TB (4 / 12 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Penny took a back seat yet again, and though potentially productive, he remains only an important handcuff option.
2019 Week 8 vs ATL (8 / 55 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Penny returned as the change of pace back, and had a lot of success in his limited action. His first carries were not until the second quarter, as he made cutbacks on consecutive plays, which gave him room to run and gains of 9 and 17. Immediately after those two carries, Carson subbed back in. Later in the quarter, Penny surprisingly had two red zone carries, first going for twelve yards running left, then again from the 5-yard line but he was stopped just short. And then... Carson came back in and scored from in close. Overall, his skill set of speed/quickness, give the Seahawks a very different look from Carson's game, so as long as he's healthy, he could carve out a slightly larger share of the carries.
2019 Week 7 vs BAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Penny was available (hamstring), and in fact made an appearance in the opening quarter, but had no touches.
2019 Week 5 vs LAR (6 / 18 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 31 / 0 rec)
This game marked Penny's return from a hamstring that sidelined him for two games. He played a change of pace role with limited (12) snaps. He did quite a lot with his minimal time, however, carrying the ball six times, and even lining up wide on a second half play and showing excellent concentration in catching a 30-yard pass down the sideline. It's worth paying attention to is that his skills were on full display, even on plays that did not become big gains. As a runner, he was not only agile but also read his blocks well; and on one catch, he so easily made the first defender miss, but then slipped up a couple of yards later. The backfield is firmly Chris Carson's right now, but if opportunity were to knock, Penny looks ready to take advantage.
2019 Week 2 vs PIT (10 / 62 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)
Penny did not see the field much in the first half, but picked up steam as the game went on. He was used at first to give Carson a breather, but late in the game was given the call after Carson's second costly fumble. His TD play was quietly a thing of beauty as he took the shotgun handoff up the middle, and, because it was an option play, when he had to bounce back outside, found himself running right behind Russell Wilson, who promptly blocked for him all the way to the end zone, a 37 yard score! The combination of good play and Carson's ball security issues could give him a window to more playing time next week.
2019 Week 1 vs CIN (6 / 18 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Penny neither disappointed nor shone, posting the roughly the same YPC as starter Chris Carson. Problem is, Penny only had about 25% of the touches as compared to Carson, and significantly, none of his were receptions. Penny did have one standout play, however, a 20 yard gain which was called back on holding. But, he did a very good job on the play of working around his blockers, showing both patience and poise. It definitely looked like an improvement over his work last year.
