RB - SEA
Rashaad Penny reportedly slimmed down to 223 pounds and feels "way faster" at Seahawks camp.
“I’m the lightest I’ve ever been. I honestly feel like I’m back in high school again,” Penny said. The former first-round pick has struggled mightily with injuries early in his career, playing a total of 27 games in the first three seasons of his career so far. Penny said it was his goal to lose weight this offseason. “That was definitely part of the goal, to lose weight and to be effective," Penny said. "I felt the lighter I am, the more explosive I can be." He remains the No. 2 running back on the Seahawks depth chart behind Chris Carson and can potentially fit the new offense being ran by offensive coordinator Shane Waldron much better than he did in the Seahawks old offense under Brian Schottenheimer. He can potentially remain the change-of-pace back to Carson, spelling him when need be.
Joe Fann of NBC Sports Northwest is reporting that Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny underwent minor knee surgery this offseason.
Penny “had a little work” on his knee this offseason, per Fann. He won't participate in mandatory minicamp after undergoing a cleanup procedure on his knee. Seahawks HC Pete Carroll expects Penny to be back by training camp. The 25-year-old RB has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career and has been limited to 13 games the past two seasons due to knee injuries. He rushed for 34 yards on 11 attempts across three games in 2020. If healthy, Penny will compete with Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas for the Seahawks No.2 running back spot behind Chris Carson.
Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny is not expected to have his fifth-year option picked up by the team, per Ian Rapoport.
Penny saw virtually no work within the offense until the final three games of last season, totaling just 11 carries for 34 yards. Injuries were a large part of the former San Diego State running back's struggles in Seattle during 2020. This decision elevates Seahawks' starting running back Chris Carson, who is all but assured to have a three-down workhorse role out of the backfield with Penny getting his fifth-year option declined. Carson carried 141 times for 681 yards and five touchdowns in 12 games during the 2020 season, adding another 37 receptions and four touchdowns through the air. Carson remains a bonafide RB1 with Penny, Travis Homer, and DeeJay Dallas behind him on the depth chart heading into the 2021 season.
Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) was added to the team's injury report and is now questionable for Wild Card Weekend.
Late additions to the injury report are never a good sign. DeeJay Dallas could see snaps if Penny doesn't play, but neither of these backs will be fantasy relevant.
Jeremy Fowler of ESPN is reporting that Seahawks’ RB Rashaad Penny (knee) will make his season debut in Sunday’s Week 15 contest against Washington.
Penny tore his ACL in Week 14 of the 2019 season. “Barring a change today, Seattle is expected to activate the former first-round pick off IR,” per Fowler. Penny returned to practice last Wednesday and reportedly is in “really good shape.” The 2018 first-round pick is set to make his 2020 season debut and is a full year from removed the ACL tear. Penny will be eased into action and is currently third on Seahawks’ RB depth chart behind Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde.
