Carson is the one hurt now, though, and Penny is healthy, which meant he got his second career start against the Texans last Sunday. Penny made the most of it by running 16 times for 137 yards and two touchdowns.
“I think he deserves a shot to show that, to start it out,” Carroll said, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. “We’ll still rotate to keep you guys fresh, but yeah, we’re gonna give him a shot again to come right on back and see if we can keep going.”
The Seahawks didn’t exercise their fifth-year option on Penny’s contract, so he’s set for free agency at the end of the season. Matching Sunday’s effort in the weeks to come should help generate interest in his services around the league.
