With Rashaad Penny (knee) downgraded to questionable on Friday, the Seahawks have activated running back Alex Collins from their practice squad for Sunday’s wild-card matchup against the Rams.

Collins has appeared in three games this season, including Seattle’s Week 10 loss to Los Angeles. He started that game, registering 43 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries. Collins also scored a touchdown in Seattle’s Week 17 victory over San Francisco.

Collins has 77 yards on 18 attempts this season.

Penny missed most of the season with a knee injury. He’s played the last three weeks, but totaled only 34 yards on 11 carries.
