Seahawks RB Penny “raring to go”

Seems like we’ve heard that somewhere before. Anyhow, Seattle head coach Pete Carroll said this week that running back RASHAAD PENNY should be returning to action from injured reserve and thatMore the oft injured rusher is “raring to go”. After losing starting running back CHRIS CARSON to injured reserve for a few weeks with a neck injury and fellow runner ALEX COLLINS now battling hip and glute issues, the Seahawks may need Penny’s services. Penny, of course, will have to be officially activated back to the 53-man roster before he can appear in a game. Less

Uh-oh fantasy owners, this doesn’t sound good. Seattle running back CHRIS CARSON is reportedly dealing with a “long-term” neck injury that has his status in doubt for tonight’s game against theMore Los Angeles Rams. Head coach Pete Carroll said on Wednesday that the long-term issue is something that Carson has dealt with, adding that “sometimes it flares up, and sometimes it doesn’t”.

Factoid: Recycled backs

Jonathan Williams didn’t work out for Buffalo. The Broncos and Saints also had him, with little production. But he’s looking like a viable running back nowadays, going over 100 yards in back to back games. It’s a reminder that sometimes players need some time, and they need to find the right fit.  more »
