Injury Update: Seahawks’ RB Rashaad Penny will make his return to practice on Wednesday


For the Seahawks, the Sunday loss to the New York Giants is a game that the team wants to move on from quickly.

It is a start of a new week and the team now has to get prepared for the New York Jets. And that is exactly what professional teams have to do.

On Monday, head coach Pete Carroll had to make his weekly appearance on 710 ESPN Seattle and was able to provide us some insight on a number of players dealing with injuries.

One player that Carroll mentioned will actually be making his 2020 debut after a year and a day of being out with a knee injury.

Seahawks’ running back Rashaad Penny is finally set to make his return to the prattle field on Wednesday.

With the potential of Penny returning for Sunday’s game against the Jets, this takes a huge load of backs Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde who are still dealing with soreness from the injuries from the last game.

One other player that could be making a return from injury is right tackle Brandon Shell, who suffered a high ankle sprain agains the Cardinals.

Shell returning to the team would be a huge help for the Seahawks line who have had to make adjustments to protect Russell Wilson on the fly.


Besides that good news, it seems cornerback Ryan Neal’s MRI for his hip injury he suffered on Sunday “didn’t show much,” which is great. His status for the game on Sunday is still up in the air.

Carroll also added that Seattle may see TE Greg Olsen back on the field after all this season. It seems that Olsen is coming back “fast” from the foot injury he suffered in Week 11 against Arizona.

The loss on Sunday was a tough pill to swallow for all of Seattle. It happened, you guys, so the thing we all have to do is move on at this point and get ready for the game against the Jets.

Thankfully for the Seahawks, help seems to be on the way with players who were injured making their way back to the field.

The season isn’t completely over just yet.
