Seahawks great running back Rashaad Penny suffered a fractured tibia
This one is a heartbreaker more than the Seahawks game day loss to the Saints. Everyone feels bad for Rashaad Penny, especially on a 1-year prove-it deal. For the first time in his career, Penny was the lead back for the Seahawks, and ready to show the football world why he was drafted in the first round by the Seahawks in 2018. Everything came crashing down for Penny as he suffered a fractured tibia.
This injury was reported early Monday, and it will require surgery thus ending Rashaad Penny’s 2022 season. It is a bitter pill to swallow for the Seahawks and Penny who will be a free agent next offseason.
We wish nothing but the best for Penny and a speedy recovery. Seattle now has to rely on this year’s second-round draft pick Ken Walker to fill the void left by Penny.
Seattle will move forward with Walker as their lead back, sprinkled in with Deejay Dallas, and Travis Homer. This is still a run-first team, and Pete Carroll will always find a way to establish the run. Although it comes to the expense of Penny’s season-ending injury, Walker has to grab this opportunity and run away with it and show us why he was drafted by the Seahawks in the early second round.
