Seahawks Rashaad Penny’s timeline for return...


Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny suffered a season-ending knee injury Week 14 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Initial testing revealed a “significant” ACL sprain, however, the MRI results confirmed the worst – Penny has an ACL tear, at the least.

“There’s some other stuff that they’ll look at when they get in there,” coach Pete Carroll told reporters Wednesday. “They are going to do surgery. He will have surgery. He’s not going in immediately. They’re going to let it quiet down before they do that. It’s a long haul before we get him back. We’re going to take all the right precautions to make sure we start the process at the right time.

“They got to get in there and find out what’s going on, but it’s an ACL damage mainly that they’re concerned with.”

Carroll was asked whether or not Penny could be unavailable at the start of next season.

“No, I would never say that right now,” Carroll said. “I don’t know how many months we got. It’s going to take him a while.”

With Penny out, Seattle will rely on C.J. Prosise and Travis Homer to assist starter Chris Carson in the run game. The Seahawks will square off against the Panthers in their final road game of the season this Sunday.
