John Schneider continued to make the media rounds on Thursday, appearing on KJR 950 with Dave Mahler and Dick Fain. Schneider’s wide-ranging interview saw a few pertinent bits of information dropped, including the surgery and potential position switch for K.J. Wright.

However, Schneider also provided an injury update for another player: Rashaad Penny. The third-year running back, who suffered a torn ACL on December 8, is expected to return to action in 2020. Due to the time in the season the injury occurred, however, it may not be until Week 7 or later. Schneider alluded to that possibility on Thursday.

The expectation for Penny to begin the season on the PUP list isn’t a result of any setback, but simply the time frame of the type of injury the tailback suffered. It’s why the Seahawks were expected to a running back all offseason. While Seattle needed to add another contributor to their group, Penny was not the reason for DeeJay Dallas’s selection, Schneider added.

Chris Carson, meanwhile, is right on track after his season was cut short due to a hip injury.

In addition to Carson, the Seahawks will enter training camp with the rookie Dallas and Travis Homer as the favorites to make the roster, with sophomore Adam Choice rounding out the unit.
