Cardinals' Elijhaa Penny: Totals 162 scrimmage yards in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny accrued 31 carries for 124 yards and two touchdowns along with four catches (on six targets) for 38 yards in 16 games with the Cardinals in 2017.

Primarily a special-teams contributor for most of the season, Penny become more involved in the offense after Adrian Peterson injured his neck in Week 13. From that point forward, he earned 67 of his 96 offensive snaps for the year, during which he recorded all but one of his rushes and receptions apiece. Working behind veritable workhorse Kerwynn Williams, Penny was used as a short-yardage specialist, yet he still averaged 4.0 YPC in his first stint as a pro. Penny is an exclusive-rights free agent in the offseason, so if the Cardinals opt to offer him a tender, he'll likely have to earn his way onto the 53-man roster with David Johnson (wrist) and 2017 fifth-round pick T.J. Logan (wrist) back to full health and Williams likely around due to his passable spell as the lead runner.

Cardinals' Elijhaa Penny: Active Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny (hand) is active for Sunday's contest at Seattle, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

In Kerwynn Williams' (quad/ribs) first two starts, Penny had a minimal role as a short-yardage back. That said, over the last two games, Penny's workload has increased, resulting in 10 touches for 41.5 yards from scrimmage per outing. Williams remains the No. 1 option out of the backfield, but Penny seemingly has carved out a modest snap count of late.

Cardinals' Elijhaa Penny: Uncertain for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny (hand/groin) remained limited at Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Seattle, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Penny never got the chance to build on his 10-carry, 45-yard performance in Week 15 against Washington, as Kerwynn Williams (quadriceps/ribs) managed to play in last week's 23-0 win over the Giants. Both running backs seem to be on track for the regular-season finale, likely relegating Penny to his usual role as a short-yardage specialist and occasional early down replacement. D.J. Foster handles most of the receiving work out of the backfield.

Cardinals' Elijhaa Penny: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny was listed as limited on Wednesday's injury report due to hand and groin concerns, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Penny has received double-digit snaps on offense the last two games, likely to relieve Kerwynn Williams as he plays through cracked ribs and a quad injury, and the results have been respectable: 18 carries for 69 yards and two catches (on three targets) for 14 yards. Assuming Penny ditches his designations in advance of Sunday's game at Seattle, he'll spell Williams yet again between the 20s.

Cardinals' Elijhaa Penny: Takes over after Williams' quad injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny rushed 10 times for 45 yards while failing to catch his lone target in Sunday's 20-15 loss to the Redskins.

Penny operated as the lead back for the fourth quarter after Kerwynn Williams exited with an injured quadriceps. The 24-year-old running back would likely be in line for a start next week against the Giants if Williams fails to suit up, but Penny lacks upside in a Cardinals offense that hasn't scored a touchdown in two weeks.
