The Seattle Seahawks announced on Friday that running back Rashaad Penny is listed as questionable with a knee injury for Saturday’s wild card game against the Los Angeles Rams.

After missing a majority of this season due to rehab, Penny made his 2020 season debut in Week 15. In that game against the Washington Football Team, the 24-year-old running back only had six yards on two carries. Penny also played 11 percent of offensive snaps in the Seahawks’ crowded backfield.

In the next two games against the San Francisco 49ers and Rams, Penny recorded 28 rushing yards on nine carries. Week 17 was Penny’s best outing as he finished second in carries (six) behind starting running back Chris Carson. Carlos Hyde is expected back this weekend, only further complicating the situation. If Penny cannot play or is limited then we could also see Alex Collins, who is the backup running back to take Penny’s carries. Also, do not forget about rookie DeeJay Dallas, who was a full participant at practice on Thursday.
