    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Not scheduled for surgery

    Coach Pete Carroll said Rashaad Penny (knee) had an MRI and isn't expected to require surgery, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.Penny didn't practice this week and has been ruled out for Sunday's game in San Francisco. His absence should free up more work for Mike Davis behind starter Chris Carson, though it's also possible Carson or J.D. McKissic handles some of the vacated snaps/touches. While the rookie doesn't seem like a great bet to make it back for Week 16, the Seattle Seahawks hope he can play again this season.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Ruled out for Week 15

    Rashaad Penny (knee) won't play in Sunday's game at San Francisco, John Boyle of the Seattle Seahawks' official site reports.The rookie seems to have injured his ankle during Monday's 21-7 win over Minnesota, though he still managed to gain 44 yards on eight carries. Penny's usual allotment of 4-8 carries likely will go to either starter Chris Carson or passing-down back Mike Davis, though J.D. McKissic might also get a few chances. A minor boost to Carson's Week 15 outlook is in order, though he likely will be playing without 340-pound guard D.J. Fluker (hamstring), who is listed as doubtful.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Non-participant again Thursday

    Rashaad Penny (knee) was held out of practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seattle Seahawks' official site reports.With back-to-back absences to open Week 15 preparations, Penny could be in danger of his first absence as a professional Sunday in San Francisco. Over the previous five contests, all of his work has occurred on the ground -- 7.8 carries per game -- so both Chris Carson and Mike Davis could benefit in the event Penny doesn't play or is limited this weekend. Fortunately for Penny, he has another practice to put himself in the running for active status.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Has knee injury

    Coach Pete Carroll said Rashaad Penny won't practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.Penny strangely avoided all three Week 14 injury reports but still was listed as questionable ahead of Monday's game against the Vikings as a result of an ankle issue. He brushed it off and turned eight rushes into 44 yards in the victory, marking his fourth outing in five games where he averaged more than 5.0 yards per carry. The rookie hasn't been able to usurp Chris Carson for a featured role so far, and tending to injuries in back-to-back weeks won't help his cause.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Shows glimpse of explosiveness

    Rashaad Penny rushed eight times for 44 yards in Monday's win over the Vikings.Penny made solid reads and scampered for a combined 12 yards on his first two carries. His big play came in the second quarter when it looked as if he'd be stopped for a loss near the left sideline, but Penny cut back and displayed his speed by running to the opposite sideline to gain 17 yards and a first down. These explosive bursts will keep Penny as the clear No. 2 back ahead of Mike Davis, but Chris Carson has a stranglehold on the top spot for now.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Available Week 14

    Rashaad Penny (ankle) is listed as active Monday against the Vikings.Penny wasn't listed on Week 14 injury reports, implying he was a full participant in each practice. That said, he was given a questionable designation for this game due to an ankle injury. In the end, the issue didn't impact his gameday availability, but the rookie can expect to remain second or third fiddle out of the Seattle Seahawks backfield alongside Mike Davis and behind Chris Carson. Hurting Penny's cause further is a matchup against Minnesota's eighth-ranked run defense (99.2 yards per game).

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Questionable with ankle injury

    Rashaad Penny is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Vikings with an ankle injury, John Boyle of the Seattle Seahawks' official site reports.Penny wasn't present on the injury report until Saturday so the specifics of the injury remain unclear, especially considering he wasn't listed as missing any practice. If able to play Monday, the 22-year-old should assume his usual complementary role to starting RB Chris Carson. Mike Davis would likely see an increased snap share if Penny is ultimately unable to suit up.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Efficient performance

    Rashaad Penny rushed seven times for 65 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the 49ers.Penny logged two carries on the Seattle Seahawks' second drive, rumbling for 18 yards and setting up the team's first score. That efficiency allowed him to start in the backfield to begin the second half, where he took his first rush and hit the gas pedal, dashing 20 yards to find the end zone and extend the lead to 24 points. Penny is showing flashes of his ceiling with three of seven carries going for 15 or more yards. Chris Carson left the game with a finger injury and didn't return, and if he can't get healthy for Week 14's game versus the Vikings, Penny could have a hefty workload on tap.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Enhanced role on tap

    Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer expects Rashaad Penny to have a larger role in Seattle's game plan Sunday against the 49ers, Andy Patton of USA Today reports. "I expect that [Penny] will play well this weekend," Schottenheimer said. "Expect that we need to get the running game back going again and I think he'll be a big part of that."Penny appeared to gain some momentum during his up-and-down rookie season in Weeks 10 and 11, when he logged a combined 20 totes for 154 yards (7.7 per carry) and a touchdown. The first-round pick saw his usage tumble the following week, however, as he logged just 10 offensive snaps and four carries in last Sunday's 30-27 win over the Seattle Seahawks, with both Chris Carson (32) and Mike Davis (18) outpacing him in terms of usage. Both Carson and Davis remain healthy heading into the weekend, but a home matchup against a 2-9 49ers squad that has struggled to slow the run this season could translate to a run-heavy game script that affords each of the top three options on the depth chart more work than usual. The Seahawks will add another back to the mix this week with J.D. McKissic (foot) returning from injured reserve, but he's likely more of a threat to Davis' duties on passing downs than Penny's role.

    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Rarely used in win

    Rashaad Penny rushed four times for four yards in Sunday's win over the Panthers.Penny's carries were distributed between two different drives, as he clearly wasn't an integral part of the Seattle Seahawks' game plan while Chris Carson led the way with 16 carries for 55 yards. It appears Penny will need to break off big runs to lock in touches like he did in the two previous games, though he could see more work in Week 13 if the Seahawks jump out to a sizable lead in a home game against the 49ers.
