The Seattle Seahawks were dealt a major injury blow on their first offensive series against the Los Angeles Rams. After taking a screen pass up the sideline, second year running back Rashaad Penny collapsed to the turf holding his knee and pounding the turf.
Penny went into the blue medical tent on the sideline, with Chris Carson accompanying him per the broadcast, before heading to the locker room.
Initially, Penny was ruled questionable to return with a knee injury. Shortly afterwards, he was downgraded to out for the game. This comes on the heels of Penny's performance against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football, a game where it appeared the Hawks may have finally found the type of one-two punch from the running backs Pete Carroll often talks about.
Seattle did activate all four tailbacks ahead of Week 14, so while they will be without Penny for the remainder of the game, they can count on Chris Carson, C.J. Prosise and Travis Homer for the remainder of the contest against the Rams.
