The Seattle Seahawks had a pair of unexpected additions to their Week 6 injury report on Thursday as they continue preparations for the Cleveland Browns. Running back Chris Carson was a limited participant due to a shoulder injury, while running back Rashaad Penny was a full participant due to a hamstring injury. Neither was on Wednesday’s injury report.
Fantasy football analysis, Seahawks RBs Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny
This will be a situation to track. It’s helpful that neither was a DNP, but unexpected additions to the second or third practice participation report of the weeks raises red flags. Penny is less of a concern given he was a full participant. Carson as a limited participant will be someone to watch on Friday’s report. If he’s limited again, he could end up a game-time decision heading into Sunday. The good news is the Seahawks are playing in Cleveland so it’s a 1:00 p.m. game.
If both play, Carson remains the starting option in fantasy. Penny returned last week after a two-week absence and had eight touches while Carson rushed for 118 yards. Penny could eventually work his way back into a viable fantasy role, but it’s not happening yet. If Carson sits however, Penny gets his shot and is a guy you start in Week 6.
