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.
Huddle Up: 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.
