    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Will have surgery, out 3-to-4 weeks

    Rashaad Penny will have surgery Wednesday to repair a broken finger, with his recovery timeline estimated at 3-4 weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.This timeline will take Penny right up to the season opener against the Broncos on Sept. 9. Without any solid preseason film -- the Seattle Seahawks are most concerned about his pass-blocking skills -- Penny has all but lost his chance to be the Week 1 starter. The rookie first-round pick should still have the No. 2 RB job behind Chris Carson, with a chance to surpass him as the year rolls on.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Suffers broken finger

    Rashaad Penny has a hand injury that includes a broken finger, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.The Seattle Seahawks were clearly high on Penny being their backfield staple after picking him in the first round of this year's draft. The last week has been rough for Penny, however, as he logged eight carries for 16 yards in his preseason debut and suffered this injury during Monday's practice. Chris Carson already seemed to have an advantage in a battle for the starting job, and his prospects only improve with Penny now uncertain for Week 1.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Exits practice early

    Rashaad Penny left Monday's practice early, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.The rookie presumably suffered an injury of some sort, but offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said he doesn't think it's anything serious. An extended run of practice absences would be problematic for Penny's fantasy outlook, considering Chris Carson refuses to give up the starting job without a fight. Carson had four carries for 26 yards in Thursday's preseason loss to the Colts, while Penny managed just 16 yards on eight carries and seven yards on two receptions. Carson got the start and the first carry, but Penny did have two touches on the opening drive.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Tough sledding on ground in debut

    Rashaad Penny rushed eight times for 16 yards and brought in both of his targets for seven yards in the Seattle Seahawks' 19-17 preseason loss to the Colts on Thursday.The rookie couldn't quite find the same level of success on the ground that fellow back Chris Carson enjoyed, although he did make a modest impact in the passing game. Penny saw action from the first possession, although Carson received the first carry of the contest. Irrespective of which player secures the top spot on the depth chart heading into the regular season, both figure to see a fair share of work as the campaign unfolds. Penny will look to up his rushing numbers against the Chargers in the Seahawks' second exhibition game a week from Saturday.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Showing three-down skills

    Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer is impressed with Rashaad Penny's early work as a pass catcher and blocker, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. "[Penny] has scat back qualities along with the ability of running in between the tackles," said Schottenheimer. "Everybody wants to see him pass protect, but I've been blown away by his ability to, again, diagnose the blitz, see where the blitz is coming from, and track his guy. It's been outstanding for a young back, one of the best if not the best I've ever been around."While the rookie is off to a good start at training camp, Schottenheimer did mention that Penny still needs to prove he can protect the quarterback in practices with full pads. Chris Carson has been getting most of the first-team reps, with head coach Pete Carroll recently complimenting the second-year back for his versatility on offense as well as his ability to contribute on special teams. Of course, the Seahawks didn't use a first-round pick on Penny just to watch him ride the pine all season, so they'll presumably find a way to get him touches even if Carson earns the Week 1 starting job. This is one of the more intriguing position battles across the league, with pass-catching backs C.J. Prosise and J.D. McKissic also trying to make a case for playing time. Prosise has been getting the majority of first-team reps in the two-minute offense.
