Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is facing an extensive recovery period in order to be ready for the beginning of the 2020 season after undergoing surgery for more than 'just a normal ACL' tear, according to head coach Pete Carroll Wednesday, Jan. 1.
Huddle Up: Penny's expected to return as the backup to RB Chris Carson next season. He'll be an RB3 or 4, as he'll still see enough work in a very run-heavy offense.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list, Saturday, Dec. 14.
Huddle Up: The knee injury certainly won't help the former first-round pick establish himself as the potential starter in Seattle in 2020. If you own Penny in a dynasty league, you just have to stash him and hope he eventually turns things around.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during the Week 14 game, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Penny probably will not do much during the offseason but should be ready for Week 1 next season. He can be at least a flex option next season if he stays with the Seahawks. Chris Carson will be the main option in the running game for the rest of the season and is a must-start option.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) will miss the rest of the 2019 season because of the knee injury he suffered in Week 14. Head coach Pete Carroll said Penny is dealing with a significant injury, but he is still waiting for the MRI results.
Huddle Up: Chris Carson will be the main option in the running game with Penny out and should receive plenty of carries each week. Carson is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues no matter the opponent. C.J. Prosise likely will receive a bigger role in the offense and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is believed to have suffered a 'significant' sprain to his anterior crucial ligament in Week 14 versus the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: It seems likely an MRI on Monday will reveal a torn ACL. Penny hasn't caught much of a break in two NFL seasons, dealing with a knee injury for most of 2018 and a hamstring issue for part of this season before this setback. Penny was just starting to become a solid 1B to Chris Carson's 1A in Seattle's backfield, but the timing of this injury - assuming it is an ACL tear - puts him in danger of being ready for training camp next summer. Carson should finish out the season as a solid fantasy RB1.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) left the Week 14 game against the Los Angeles Rams due to a left knee injury. He left for the locker room and will have X-rays, according to NBC Sports sideline reporter Michele Tafoya.
Huddle Up: With Penny sidelined, Chris Carson figures to see a majority of the workload with C.J. Prosise figuring in on passing downs and as a blocker.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny posted 15 carries for 74 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Minnesota Vikings and he added four receptions for 33 yards and a score on five targets.
Huddle Up: Penny co-existed nicely with Chris Carson, who went over 100 yards on the ground with a score. He remains a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 14 against the Los Angeles Rams.
