    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Back in running back rotation

    Rashaad Penny rushed nine times for 43 yards and caught both of his targets for 27 more in Sunday's 27-3 win over the Raiders at Wembley Stadium.Penny was the Seattle's most effective running back ahead of Chris Carson (59 yards on 14 touches) and Mike Davis (26 yards on seven touches). Carson is still ahead of Penny in the pecking order, as the 27th overall selection in the 2018 draft is still searching for his first career touchdown heading into Seattle's Week 7 bye.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Left without role

    Rashaad Penny didn't play any snaps on offense in Sunday's 33-31 loss to the Rams, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.Chris Carson and Mike Davis combined for 184 yards and a touchdown on 31 carries, likely setting up a similar backfield split for Week 6 in Oakland. Despite his status as a first-round pick, Penny doesn't have a clear path to playing time unless one of his teammates suffers an injury or the Seattle Seahawks eventually fall out of the playoff picture. The team might even consider making him a healthy inactive on gamedays, considering he doesn't offer much value on special teams or in the passing game.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Takes backseat despite Carson's injury

    Rashaad Penny rushed nine times for 49 yards and zero touchdowns in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Cardinals.Penny was expected to be the team's lead back because Chris Carson (hip) was inactive, but Mike Davis showed a hot hand early and recorded a bulk of the touches (21 carries and four catches). That extends the frustrations for the Seattle Seahawks, who reached to pick Penny in the first round of April's draft, and fantasy owners who looked to benefit off Carson's injury. Penny shouldn't be streamed at this time since he could get bumped to the No. 3 role if Carson is healthy for a tough Week 5 matchup with the Rams.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Will be No. 1 back Sunday

    Rashaad Penny is expected to be the Seattle Seahawks' lead back Sunday at Arizona with Chris Carson (hip) sidelined, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.Carson took a significant amount of contact last Sunday during a 32-carry performance, emerging with a hip injury. He entered the weekend as a game-time decision, but ultimately, the Seahawks will hold him out with his health in mind. Behind Penny, C.J. Prosise (abdomen) will be available, but the fact he's active after being deemed doubtful doesn't equate to a sunny forecast. Consequently, Penny is poised for his most work as a pro Sunday.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Gets just three carries

    Rashaad Penny had just three carries for five yards in Sunday's 24-13 win over Dallas.Penny received 10 carries Week 2 but took a backseat Sunday to Chris Carson, who ran a whopping 32 times for 102 yards and a touchdown. With a shaky offensive line and the presence of Carson, it's hard to get excited about Penny, at least at the moment. If you need Penny, he'll face Arizona in Week 4.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Paces squad with 10 carries

    Rashaad Penny rushed 10 times for 30 yard and didn't make a catch on two targets during Monday's 24-17 loss to the Bears.The Seattle Seahawks found themselves in an early deficit and neglected the run at times, instead allowing Russell Wilson to take full control. Still, it was surprising to see Penny lead the team in carries after coach Pete Carroll said Chris Carson, who had six rushes Monday, was the clear No. 1 running back. Until the offensive line shows significant improvement, neither running back is a reliable fantasy option outside of deeper leagues.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Falls behind Carson

    Coach Pete Carroll said Chris Carson took the lead over Rashaad Penny in the tailback battle, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.Carroll went on to say Penny looked "rusty" after having just one full week of practice under his belt leading up to the season opener. Penny was simply outperformed, rushing for eight yards on seven carries while Carson produced 51 yards on as many chances. The Seattle Seahawks won't neglect Penny at this time, but the rookie first-round pick needs to prove himself soon in order to keep getting touches.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Lays egg in Sunday's debut

    Rashaad Penny rushed seven times for eight yards and caught four passes for 35 yards in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Broncos.Penny rushed for five yards in his first career carry, but he gained just three yards on his next six tries. He was effective hauling in four of five passes, but he was clearly outplayed by Chris Carson, who rushed seven times for 51 yards. Penny won't be handed any favors Week 2 against a tough Bears defense.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: May struggle for touches

    Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said he wants to use all of his running backs during Sunday's game in Denver, but he also said he won't force touches in Rashaad Penny's direction, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. "We don't necessarily have, 'OK, gotta get this guy so many carries, gotta get this guy so many touches'," Schottenheimer said. "We'll just kind of see how the flow of the game goes."Penny's availability no longer seems to be in question after he logged full practice sessions Wednesday and Thursday, but the concerns regarding his Week 1 workload are still very real. With Chris Carson likely serving as the lead runner and C.J. Prosise helping out in passing situations, it's hard to see how Penny fits in as anything more than a change-of-pace option on early downs. Of course, the outlook for Week 2 and beyond could change in a hurry if the rookie outplays Carson during Sunday's game.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Practices fully Wednesday

    Rashaad Penny (hand) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seattle Seahawks' official site reports.Penny entered training camp somewhat behind the eight ball while second-year back Chris Carson handled most of the first-team reps early on. During an Aug. 13 practice, Penny suffered a broken pointer finger on his left hand, putting him further behind in the competition. While his recovery was pegged at 3-to-4 weeks, Penny was always on track to be available for Week 1, which was confirmed with his activity level on the first injury report of the campaign. Still, Penny is slated to begin his rookie season as the No. 2 option behind Carson, who performed well enough in the preseason to earn the starting nod in Seattle's season opener Sunday in Denver.
