Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Getting cast removed
Penny will have the cast removed from his broken finger Wednesday, keeping him on track to suit up for the season opener Sept. 9 in Denver, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Given that his injury allows for normal running and conditioning, Penny probably doesn't need to get much work in during full-team practice sessions before he's cleared for game action. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has even said the rookie could play in Thursday's preseason contest against Oakland, and while that seems rather far-fetched, it can at least be taken as a sign that Penny is making good progress. The situation will still require close monitoring in the coming days, as Penny is only two weeks removed from a surgical procedure that carried an initial recovery estimate of 3-to-4 weeks. Either way, Chris Carson is expected get the Week 1 start and will be the safer bet to lead the team in carries in that contest.
