When the Seattle Seahawks dropped their Week 2 game to the Tennessee Titans, they were without the services of backup running back Rashaad Penny. Penny, of course, is the much maligned 2018 first round pick who has accumulated just 831 rushing yards during the regular season over his three plus years with the team. Now, according to Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, he is not likely to add to that total this weekend when the Hawks take on the Minnesota Vikings.

Although meaningless in the grand scheme of things, the last game in which Penny contributed in a material way prior to suffering the devastating knee injury against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 14 of the 2019 season was against the Vikings. Since that Monday Night Football game against the Vikings nearly two years ago Penny has recorded just 58 yards from scrimmage, with only 42 of those yards coming since he suffered the injury.
