FINAL UPDATE: Pete Carroll told the media that Penny suffered a significant ACL sprain. He will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of the damage.

UPDATE #2: The Seahawks have ruled Rashaad Penny OUT for the rest of the game midway through the first quarter. C.J. Prosise could get some work in his place as a backup to Carson, but it’s a developing situation.

UPDATE: The Seahawks announced that Rashaad Penny is questionable to return to the game with a knee injury. He limped to the locker room, according to beat writer Joe Fann.

Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny has left the team’s Week 14 contest with an unknown injury. Penny caught a pass from Russell Wilson and turned it into a 16-yard gain but was shaken up on the play. The medical staff is checking out his leg, according to beat writer Gregg Bell. Penny has the one catch thus far.

The Seahawks running back as emerged the past two weeks as a strong complement to Chris Carson in the backfield. Penny emerged as the lead back two weeks ago, but Carson reclaimed his role last week. On the opening drive of Week 14, Carson had three rushes for 17 yards and one target.
