  • "Rashaad Penny, the Seahawks’ first pick in the 2018 NFL draft, suffered a hand injury that includes a broken finger in practice on Monday, a source confirmed to the Seattle Times, and while it was unclear how long he will be out, it’s expected he will miss a little bit of time. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is expected to meet the media on Wednesday and clarify the injury."

  • Broken finger can have multiple levels of severity.

    Hopefully it’s of the minor variation.

    If no surgical procedures were required, he should be good to go soon.

  • No need to push him. Carson, Davis, & McKissic can handle the job come week 1. Let him get right.

    Don't play Carson in pre-season week 2. I want to see a lot of Davis, Holmes, & McKissic.

    Start Carson for the 3rd pre-season game, and don't play him in the 4th and final pre-season game.

    He's on his way to Philly to have surgery Wednesday morning, Hope all goes well.

    UPDATE 1:06 a.m. ET: Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network adds that Penny is on his way to Philadelphia to have surgery on the finger Wednesday morning. He could be out 3-4 weeks, which brings his availability for Week 1 into question.

  • Hand injury that includes broken figure makes it sound like there could be more going on. He also flew out to Philadelphia for treatment. Do not need an out of state specialist for your basic broken finger.

  • This is seriously disappointing to me. Let’s hope this injury healing time is accurate at 3-4weeks. The surgery upcoming as indicated in the reports causes me concern.

    Meanwhile I want to see more of Davisand McKissic. It’s now or never forProsise.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

  • RB curse or first rounder curse? I am starting to see why Schneids prefers to trade out of the first round all the time.

    Here is to hoping for a speedy recovery but like someone else said, I would prefer caution even if he misses some regular season games. No doubt we will need reinforcements at the position as the season progresses.

    Agreed. Might be some ok filler. Prosise and his eventual move to IR should open a spot.

  • It's an injury to a finger, it happens all the time. There are no curses.
    As far as CJ goes, enough is enough with this guy. Sucks because he is a damn good player when he actually is on the field. He could make a big contribution. But he's rarely available and likely wont be :(
    He makes Mr. Glass Deion Branch seem like a healthy player.

  • A curse would be what happened to Guice.

    A broken finger happens all the time. But you need the guy holding the ball to keep hold of it. So yes, we need him to get the surgery and get healing. Taping up his fingers like a lineman won't work because he has to carry and catch the football.

    It could be a lot worse.

    If this is the big injury we get for the season, I will gladly take it.

  • Often times what we call a broken "hand" is in actuality a broken finger. The bones extending from the fingers into the hand are actually "finger". My son broke same mid season in HS and he was out the rest of the season. He was a LB at the time. Of course we didn't fly to Pennsylvania to a specialist for the surgery either. I suspect Penny's surgeon has a particular set of skills.

    Look around the league, very few durable bell cow backs...........that's why when you have one like Lynch you hold onto him like grim death, and we did.

    It's also why it's a BIG risk to draft a RB in the first round, because the chance of him being worth the high pick is diminished by risk of injury.

    Having said all this, 3-4 weeks isn't the end of the world. Penny wasn't ahead of Carson anyway, and the combo of Davis and McKissic should spell Carson nicely until Penny's back and hopefully ready to roll by week 1 or 2.

  • Normally I'd be really disappointed to hear about our first pick being injured already, but this really doesn't seem so bad to me in this case. First of all, it's just a finger injury, so it's not something that would impair his ability to run the ball or become a nagging repetitive problem for a RB such as a high ankle sprain or other leg/foot injuries can be. Second, I really like what I saw last year and in our first preseason game from Chris Carson.

    I’m not sure I agree with the statement that we have bad luck with RBs. Lack of talent is more like it. Especially last year. This year it looks to be a talented group.

    Like I said, look around the league, very few teams aren't dealing with RB injuries.

    If we're talking luck, then we have to see that we were lucky with Lynch and his insane durability, more than we've been unlucky with our RB's since. It's the #1 most injury prone position on the field.

    IMO it's also a product of the state of football, with 75-80% of high school and college programs going to up tempo spread offenses over the past decade where the RB's are just basically hybrid receivers that don't take a pounding and build up that durability and toughness...........it's easy to see that those same RB's when they get to college and then the pros aren't tougher and more durable.

    Cause they haven't carried the load and taken the hits in practice and games necessary to take the pounding of NFL games with 250 lb LB's that run 4.4's hitting them at full speed.

    We did?
    Because I could have sworn that we let him retire early, gave up his rights and let him keep the cash and now he is playing for a team he likes better for the 2nd season.

    I guess I could be wrong....but Earl I'll bet saw the same thing happen....just sayin.

  • Lynch was durable because he was a generational talent and also because, like it or not, "I'll just read it."

    Doing things exactly to the letter of play design makes your coaches like you, but it also gets you beat to all hell. Coaches LOVE you to run where you're supposed to even if you get your clock cleaned.

    The RB position used to be about actual running talent. The RB position now is a "system" game and college-esque coaches do their RBs no favors.

    You don't build up durability. You get worn down by doing what you're told even though your running into 3 DLs and damn near getting your leg broke in half.

  • I think with Carson Davis and Mckissic we will be fine until he is ready. Hopefully he can keep working out while he recovers.

  • Lynch retired, the team didn't just let him retire. Just clarifying.

    While it is true the team let him keep his SB $ and traded his rights they may have had to litigate to get the $ back and cause ill feelings with the remaining team who felt Lynch had done a lot as a Seahawks player. In the end there have been posts ad nauseum as to why Lynch became dissatisfied in Seattle and at long last the clueless OC and OLine coaches were both finally canned. I can imagine Lynch is hardly overjoyed to see Cable in Oakland.

    To me I don't think this retirement was what Earl saw but he did see the team cave into Lynch and redo his deal early and that act has bitten them in the rear, so they need to make it clear now they won't be redoing contracts early. Of course the reason why they did that with Lynch was to fight to keep Lynch here and playing b/c he was a special player in the system we had as he nullified the weak OLine play and lame offensive play calling with his strong running.

    Getting back to the topic now, the thread was about Penny's injury; and all we know so far is he has a broken finger, will be having a surgeon look at it, or surgery, and he will be out as presently estimated for 3-4 weeks.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons. Awesome!!!

    No need to clarify, but..... you cut out the important part of my sentence (gave up the rights to him and let him walk which is the opposite of the post I responded to stated).
