Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is 'ahead of schedule' in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Fantasy Spin: Penny will be able to resume practicing after sitting out the first six weeks of the regular season and Carroll indicated that he could return to action as soon as the end of October. RB Chris Carson will continue to receive the bulk of the carries in Penny's absence and should be a starting option in fantasy leagues.
Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny (knee) had reconstructive knee surgery this past December and is still on the path to recovery. He was placed on the PUP list this past weekend and will remain there until after Week 6, when he'll be eligible to begin practicing again. Chris Carson will be the team's workhorse back to open the season with Carlos Hyde filling in as the team's No. 2. If Carson struggles in the early going, Penny could be worth watching as we near the season's midpoint, but for now, Penny can remain undrafted and unowned in all fantasy formats.
Seattle Seahawks OT Tommy Champion, DT Demarcus Christmas, WR Aaron Fuller, QB Anthony Gordon, WR Penny Hart, CB Gavin Heslop, DT PJ Johnson, DT Cedrick Lattimore, WR Lance Lenoir, TE Tyler Mabry, S Chris Miller, DB Ryan Neal, CB Debione Renfro, DB Jayson Stanley, TE Stephen Sullivan, WR Cody Thompson and OT Chad Wheeler were waived Saturday, Sept. 5. The team also released FB Nick Bellore, placed RB Rashaad Penny (knee) on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list and placed TE Colby Parkinson (undisclosed), CB D.J. Reed (undisclosed) and DE Darrell Taylor (undisclosed) on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list.

Fantasy Spin: Penny is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and may not be ready for the start of the regular season. Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation but may want to avoid Penny until he returns to practice. Chris Carson will receive most of the carries and should be a weekly starting option in all leagues.
Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is making solid progress in his recovery but will not be rushed back to the field, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Carroll said the team can wait for Penny because of the addition of RB Carlos Hyde.
Fantasy Spin: Penny is expected to start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, so he probably will miss the first half of the season. Fantasy players can keep an eye on him, but he likely will be available on the waiver wire during the season.
Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider implied that running back Rashaad Penny (knee) will start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list while he recovers from a torn ACL last year. Penny's injury is typically a nine- to 10-month injury, and he suffered it on Dec. 8. Schneider said "he's doing great but it was a late-season injury." Seattle drafted DeeJay Dallas in this year's draft, and he would compete with Travis Homer for No. 2 duties behind Chris Carson if Penny isn't ready. The Seahawks remain optimistic about Penny, though, and he posted a video on Twitter on Wednesday of him doing footwork drills in his rehab. The 24-year-old was starting to come on as a change-of-pace to Carson last year before his injury, but his uncertain status for the start of 2020 will really hurt his value in deep PPR leagues.
Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) will begin the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to general manager John Schneider Thursday, April 30. 'He's doing great but it was a late-season injury,' Schneider said. Penny tore his ACL Dec. 8 and it usually requires a 9-10 month recovery.
Fantasy Spin: Penny is the No. 2 option in the Seahawks' backfield, behind Chris Carson, but he was emerging late in the 2019 season and showed both RBs can be relevant together. He should be stashed as an RB5 or 6 with some missed time expected.
Seattle Seahawks RBs Chris Carson (hip) and Rashaad Penny (knee) have reportedly made enough progress in the offseason to make offensive coordinator Bryan Schottenheimer 'feel really good about both of (them) coming back.' 'Obviously, they both had significant injuries. Chris has been through some injuries before. I think it was his rookie year before I got here he had the leg fracture. I think he'll be great. It sounds like they're doing well when we get our updates from those guys. Rashaad (is) a guy that really hasn't had to deal with that adversity before but I think that we really saw him mature last year. He was really playing terrific football for us. We saw a difference with just the way he practiced, the way he prepared. Nobody wants to see their players get injured but the injury happened at a time where he was really kind of peaking and feeling great about himself and maturing as a young man and as a football player and I think that's just going to lead into him having a terrific rehab as well,' Schottenheimer said in an interview with Sports Radio 950 KJR.
Fantasy Spin: At the moment, Carson's status for training camp remains up in the air with his hip fracture. Meanwhile, Penny will be fortunate to avoid the Physically Unable to Perform list with his torn anterior cruciate ligament. Fantasy owners should expect Seattle to use a draft pick at the position and pair him up with Travis Homer for now, at least until Carson's recovery timeline becomes clearer.
Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said on Sports Radio 950 KJR that he feels good about both running backs Chris Carson (hip) and Rashaad Penny (knee) coming back from serious injuries that they suffered at the end of last season. Head coach Pete Carroll has also maintained optimism with Carson, while saying that Penny would likely begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Seattle is a team that leans heavily on the running game, so the recoveries of both Carson and Penny are important. Carson was the lead back before his injury, rushing for 1,230 yards and seven touchdowns in 15 games. He has RB1 upside in this offense but is a bit risky because of his injury history. Penny was in a secondary role as mostly a pass-catcher, but he was peaking at the time of his ailment and could become a wild card in PPR leagues when he's fully recovered from his knee injury. Penny's fantasy value could also depend on whether the Seahawks add to the position in next week's draft.
