Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny popped up on the team’s practice report Thursday. He was limited with a knee injury.

It went unnoticed, though, because the Seahawks didn’t give Penny a designation.

They now have.

The Seahawks updated their injury report Friday, ahead of Saturday’s wild-card game against the Rams, listing Penny as questionable with his injury.

Penny has had a limited role since returning from a torn ACL that kept him out more than a year. He has played 38 offensive snaps in three games, with 11 touches for 34 yards.

The Seahawks still have Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde and DeeJay Dallas available and could add Alex Collins to the active roster, if needed.

  1. No worries….MORE Alex Collins please! He seems to run well against the Rams.🏈💪

  2. Penny has played in only 27 games the past three season’s with more injuries, less playing time, exponentially drifting in the wrong direction. He has only 161 run attempts for 823 yards gained, thus far in his 3 year career. Picking up his fifth year option is not advisable making next season’s contract year a “prove it” year.

    For the record, Penny’s 27th overall draft pick resulted in his contract worth total of $10.76M. He got $5.9M signing bonus & $9.39M was guaranteed. He would have $2M dead money & $1.3M Cap savings if cut next season. About $1.3M & $1.95M if traded. I expect him to be with the team next season, but unless he can sustain a durable presence, he won’t get an extension.
