Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Avoids injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny (hamstring) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Coming off a third absence in a four-game stretch, Penny finally appears to be healthy and ready to get Seattle's backfield back to full strength. It remains to be seen how many reps he'll handle on a weekly basis, though, as Chris Carson has averaged 27.3 touches for 142.3 yards from scrimmage while scoring two touchdowns over the last three contests.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Will be 'full-go' Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pete Carroll expects Penny (hamstring) to practice in full Wednesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Penny was listed as a full participant on the last two injury reports last week, but he still got a questionable tag and eventually was ruled out Sunday at Cleveland. This followed his return from a two-game absence as he tends to a hamstring injury. Even if he returns this weekend, Penny will play a distant second fiddle to Chris Carson, who has managed three straight 100-yard outings on the ground.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Lands on inactive list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny (hamstring) is listed as inactive Week 6 against Cleveland.

Penny was able to suit up and contribute last week against the Rams, but it appears he tweaked his hamstring again, as he was added back to the injury report this week. Even though he logged back-to-back full practice sessions, Penny will end up missing his third game of the season. In his absence, look for Chris Carson to lead the backfield, with CJ Prosise on hand in a backup capcity.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Logs full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Cleveland, despite being a full practice participant Friday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Penny was added to the injury report Thursday as a full participant, perhaps hinting at a minor tweak of the hamstring injury that held him out in Weeks 3 and 4. Regardless, he appears on track to play in Sunday's game against Cleveland, with the kickoff scheduled for 1:00 p.m. ET. A late setback would leave C.J. Prosise as the No. 2 back behind Chris Carson.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Added to injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Cleveland, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Added to the injury report Thursday as a full participant, Penny now carries a designation for Sunday's game, while fellow running back Chris Carson (shoulder) has been cleared to play. Penny previously missed missed Weeks 3 and 4 with a hamstring injury, returning for last Thursday's win over the Rams with six carries for 18 yards and two catches for 31 yards on 12 snaps. C.J. Prosise got seven carries and five targets over a two-week stretch during Penny's aforementioned absence. The Seahawks and Browns are scheduled for a 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Garners eight touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny rushed six times for 18 yards and caught both of his targets for 31 yards in Thursday's 30-29 win over the Rams.

This was Penny's first game back after he missed two contests with a hamstring injury. If he had been able to play in one of those games, Penny may have enjoyed an increased workload since Chris Carson was having fumble issues back then. However, Carson was the clear bell cow in this outing with 27 carries for 118 scoreless yards. Penny did show a spark of versatility by lining up out wide and catching a 30-yard pass in the third quarter, but he appears to simply be a change-of-pace option since he played just 12 of a possible 74 offensive snaps.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Ready to rock versus Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pete Carroll said Thursday that Penny will be available Thursday versus the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Penny missed Seattle's last two games due to a lingering hamstring injury, but he now appears back to full health and ready to retake the field. The 2018 first-round pick stands to play his usual role as a complement to backfield mate Chris Carson during Thursday Night Football. He'll attempt to make the most of his explosive skill set against Los Angeles' stout defensive front.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: In line to return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pete Carroll is anticipating Penny (hamstring) being available Thursday versus the Rams, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. "He looked ready to play (Sunday at Arizona). He looked like he could have gone," Carroll said Monday. "It was kind of defying the time frames for a hamstring to be ready in eight days, of the severity that it was."

After wrapping up last week with back-to-back limited listings on the injury report, Carroll relayed that Penny had a chance to play Sunday, but it didn't come to pass. Penny upped his odds to end a two-game absence by receiving a "full" tag on Monday's report. In the wake of Chris Carson's Week 4 load -- 22 carries and four receptions -- there's a potential opportunity for additional work for Penny. That said, Carroll called Carson "fine" Monday, so it appears Penny will settle back into the No. 2 role that equated to 17 touches through the first two games of the season.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Gets 'full' tag Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny (hamstring) was listed as a full participant on the Seahawks' estimated injury report Monday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

In the aftermath of Sunday's win at Arizona, coach Pete Carroll relayed his expectation that Penny would return this Thursday against the Rams, per Boyle. The Seahawks listing Penny as "full" is a good sign that will come to fruition, but Carroll and company likely will want to see him on the practice field before clearing him for game action. In any case, Penny could be in line for a decent workload just four days after lead running back Chris Carson racked up a whopping 26 touches.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Week 5 return expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pete Carroll said in his postgame press conference after Sunday's win over Arizona that he expects Penny (hamstring) to return in Week 5 against the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Seattle has a short turnaround with the Week 5 contest occurring Thursday, suggesting Penny is very close to returning. Look for Penny to return to practice this week as further confirmation of his status.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

With Penny unavailable, Chris Carson will continue to head the Seahawks' backfield in Week 4, with C.J. Prosise on hand to work in a change-of-pace/complementary role.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Has chance to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny (hamstring) practiced in a limited capacity Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Arizona, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. "He had a good week, in preparation for it. He didn't get to work every day this week, but he did finish out the week going. So that's a good sign," coach Pete Carroll said.

Sidelined Week 3 by a strained hamstring, Penny remained a non-participant Wednesday before wrapping up the week with back-to-back capped showings. As intimated by Carroll, the development is a sign that Penny is trending toward a return Sunday. In that scenario, Penny may not receive more than the 9.5 touches per game that he averaged the first two weeks of the season. That said, starter Chris Carson has lost three fumbles through three games, a trend that, if it continues, eventually could vault Penny into a bigger role.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Arizona, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Penny's return to a limited practice Friday would seem to give him a decent shot at avoiding a second straight absence. There's been chatter of an expanded role once he gets healthy, with Chris Carson losing three fumbles through the first three weeks of the season. In any case, Penny's availability for Week 4 may come down to a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff. The Seahawks have C.J. Prosise and Travis Homer on reserve in the backfield.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Returns to practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant on Thursday's injury report, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Penny upheld coach Pete Carroll's initial thoughts on the running back's return to practice. With one session under his belt and another to go, Penny seems to have a chance to rejoin Chris Carson in the Seahawks' backfield this weekend. Friday's injury report will reveal whether or not that's a possibility.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: No activity Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Penny's return to practice has been a frequent topic of coach Pete Carroll's press conferences this week. On Sunday, Carroll mentioned Penny may participate as soon as Thursday. Then, Carroll bumped that up Wednesday. Because the latter didn't come to pass, Penny will attempt to uphold the initial timeline as he works his way back from a strained hamstring.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: To practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that Penny (hamstring) will participate in practice, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Penny was initially expected to resume practicing Thursday, so it appears as though he's recovering well from his hamstring injury. The second-year running back sat out Week 3's loss to the Saints but appears to have a fair shot of returning versus the Cardinals on Sunday.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Could practice soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pete Carroll believes Penny (hamstring) could return to practice as soon as this coming Thursday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

This is encouraging news for Penny, as returning to practice during the week would give him a fair shot at suiting up against the Cardinals in Week 4 after sitting out Seattle's Week 3 loss to the Saints.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Officially out Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's Week 3 tilt against the Saints.

Penny's absence has been expected for about the last 48 hours after the 2018 first-round pick hurt his hamstring in Friday's practice. The Seahawks have stated Penny's injury is not overly serious, but they'll play it safe and have C.J. Prosise and Travis Homer serve as complementary options behind Chris Carson.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Not expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny, who injured his hamstring during Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, isn't expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Penny's injury is not considered serious, but Schefter notes Seattle wants to be cautious with the second-year back while he manages the injury. Assuming Penny is included among Seattle's inactives when the team releases its list 90 minutes prior to the 4:25 p.m. EDT kickoff, C.J. Prosise would be the next man up for reps behind starter Chris Carson.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Injures hamstring at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny injured his hamstring during Friday's practice and now is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

The last-second injury doesn't give Penny much time to recover, potentially opening the door for C.J. Prosise or Travis Homer to see a bit of extra work behind Chris Carson. The bigger impact of a Penny absence might simply be for the Seahawks to give Carson even more touches than he usually gets.
