  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny put on PUP list    Tue Aug 4, 02:47 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) was placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, Aug. 4.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Penny's availability for the start of the regular season is in question. He could be on the PUP list to start the season, thus missing at least the first six weeks.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny will not be rushed back    Thu Jun 11, 06:01 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is making solid progress in his recovery but will not be rushed back to the field, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Carroll said the team can wait for Penny because of the addition of RB Carlos Hyde.

Footballguys view: The team added Hyde because Penny is not going to be ready for the start of the regular season. We should see Penny placed on the PUP list for the beginning of the season, forcing him to miss the first six weeks. Chris Carson is the starter and Hyde is the veteran backup.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny to begin on PUP list    Thu Apr 30, 08:32 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) will begin the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to general manager John Schneider Thursday, April 30. 'He's doing great but it was a late-season injury,' Schneider said.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Penny is talented but he's struggled to stay healthy in the pros. The former first-round pick will have to see if he can comeback in the middle of the regular season. Penny tore his ACL Dec. 8 and it usually requires a 9-10 month recovery.

  Seahawks | Seattle RBs recovery fueling optimism    Tue Apr 14, 10:49 PM

Seattle Seahawks RBs Chris Carson (hip) and Rashaad Penny (knee) have reportedly made enough progress in the offseason to make offensive coordinator Bryan Schottenheimer 'feel really good about both of (them) coming back.''Obviously, they both had significant injuries. Chris has been through some injuries before. I think it was his rookie year before I got here he had the leg fracture. I think he'll be great. It sounds like they're doing well when we get our updates from those guys. Rashaad (is) a guy that really hasn't had to deal with that adversity before but I think that we really saw him mature last year. He was really playing terrific football for us. We saw a difference with just the way he practiced, the way he prepared. Nobody wants to see their players get injured but the injury happened at a time where he was really kind of peaking and feeling great about himself and maturing as a young man and as a football player and I think that's just going to lead into him having a terrific rehab as well,' Schottenheimer said in an interview with Sports Radio 950 KJR.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny making progress    Sun Mar 15, 10:48 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) posted a video of himself on social media taking part in footwork drills.

Footballguys view: Penny was cleared for rehab work in mid-February, but he's a long way from getting back on the field. Most expect that Penny will begin training camp on the PUP list and his availability for the start of the regular season is a question mark.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny likely to start on PUP    Tue Feb 25, 04:38 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is likely to begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to head coach Pete Carroll Tuesday, Feb. 25.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Penny then would likely begin the regular season on the PUP list. That would put him out of action for the first six weeks of the 2020 season to give him more time to heal from yet another injury.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny making progress    Fri Feb 14, 09:21 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) was able to use a stationary bike Tuesday, Feb. 11, for the first time since undergoing knee surgery.

Footballguys view: That's good news for the Seahawks, but there's still no guarantee that Penny will be ready for the start of the regular season. Penny has talent but he's been oft-injured during his time in the pros. The 2018 first-round pick could be a candidate for the PUP list to begin the year, which would force him out for the first six weeks of the regular season.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny facing extensive recovery    Wed Jan 1, 09:03 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is facing an extensive recovery period in order to be ready for the beginning of the 2020 season after undergoing surgery for more than 'just a normal ACL' tear, according to head coach Pete Carroll Wednesday, Jan. 1.

Footballguys view: Penny's availability for the start of the 2020 regular season has to be in question with this extensive injury. Chris Carson doesn't need offseason hip surgery but he should be ready for the start of training camp and will be the lead back for the Seahawks once again.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny having surgery    Fri Dec 20, 09:34 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is having surgery to repair his anterior cruciate ligament in his knee Friday, Dec. 20.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks are doing the right thing and not subjecting Penny to the uncertainty Ryan Tannehill faced when he didn't have a partial ACL tear repaired only to have the surgery the following year. Penny might struggle to be ready for Week 1 next year so Travis Homer has a chance to earn a role this offseason.

  Seahawks | Seattle's Week 15 injury report    Fri Dec 13, 05:56 PM

Seattle Seahawks LB Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) and RB Rashaad Penny (knee) did not practice Friday, Dec. 13, and have been ruled out for Week 15 versus the Carolina Panthers. TE Luke Willson (hamstring) and CB Shaquill Griffin (hamstring) also did not participate in practice Friday but are listed as questionable. DE Jadeveon Clowney (core, illness) and DE Ziggy Ansah (neck) were limited in practice Friday and are also listed as questionable. DT Al Woods (ankle) did not practice Friday but is expected to play. OT Duane Brown (knee, biceps) was limited Friday but no longer appears on the injury report. FB Nick Bellore (quad), TE Jacob Hollister (thigh), OG Mike Iupati (neck), WR Tyler Lockett (shin), OG Jordan Roos (back), LB Cody Barton (knee, ankle), WR Josh Gordon (knee) and OT George Fant (knee) logged a full practice Friday and have also been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: If Willson returns it could take the edge off of Jacob Hollister's upside in Carolina. Clowney's illness is a bigger problem than his core muscle injury right now. If he can't go Sunday, the Seattle D/ST is a downgrade and Kyle Allen and the Panthers passing game is an upgrade.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny could have more than ACL tear    Thu Dec 12, 02:26 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) may have sustained more damage than just a torn ACL, according to head coach Pete Carroll, who added that they'll learn the extent of the damage whenever Penny undergoes surgery.

Footballguys view: Ouch. That just sucks for the 2018 first-round pick. Penny was playing well behind Chris Carson and was getting a good role for Seattle's offense. Now, he may not even be ready for the start of the 2020 season. We'll know more once the team says exactly what the extent of the injury is.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny to undergo surgery    Wed Dec 11, 03:40 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) will undergo surgery to repair his torn ACL, according to head coach Pete Carroll Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: Penny may not be ready for the start of the 2020 season. We will see him limited in training camp next year if he's even ready to do that. This injury is a disappointing way for the 2018 first-round pick to end his second season. The Seahawks roll on with Chris Carson as their lead back.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny has torn ACL    Mon Dec 9, 05:20 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during the Week 14 game, according to a source.

Footballguys view: It's another injury-shortened season for the 2018 first-round pick. Penny had been flashing as a reserve runner behind Chris Carson. He finishes his second year with 370 rushing yards and three touchdowns in 10 games. Carson will continue as the lead back for Seattle with C.J. Prosise getting some change-of-pace work with Penny done for the year.

Seattle Seahawks RBs Chris Carson played 39 snaps versus 35 for Rashaad Penny in Week 13 against the Minnesota Vikings. In Week 12 versus the Philadelphia Eagles, Carson logged 31 snaps and Penny finished with 30.

Footballguys view: Carson has RB1 value for Fantasy GMs even with this split. Penny has flex appeal with RB1/RB2 upside in this split as well.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny ready to be relevant?    Mon Nov 25, 01:26 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny has apparently worked his way back into the good graces of head coach Pete Carroll, who told reporters Monday, Nov. 25, there is 'no reason not to get (Penny) back in there' after he ran for 129 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries in Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles.'Chris (Carson) is a guy who is a big part of our team and we'll do everything we can (for him). ... Competition is a beautiful thing and no reason not to get (Penny) back in there next week. We'll get those guys hammering away,' Carroll said.

Footballguys view: Penny could be quite fantasy relevant as the fantasy playoffs are about underway. He's out there on a lot of waiver wires so pick him up and stash him to see if this role behind Carson continues to produce fantasy points.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny played only two offensive snaps in Week 7 against the Baltimore Ravens, compared to 64 snaps for Chris Carson. When asked about Penny's lack of playing time, head coach Pete Carroll 'it just worked out that way.'

Footballguys view: Penny is worth dumping in shallow leagues because the workload just isn't there. Chris Carson is the boss of this backfield and Penny might only get more work if Carson were to get banged up.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson played 62 offensive snaps in the Week 5 victory over the Los Angeles Rams Thursday, Oct. 3. Rashaad Penny played just 12 snaps in his return from injury.

Footballguys view: Penny should get worked in a little more as the season rolls on. He played a season-high 26 snaps against the Steelers in Week 2. Carson is still the lead back, but Penny should be getting some more work provided he can stay healthy.
