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”.

Seattle GM John Schneider suggested late last week that running back RASHAAD PENNY is likely to start the upcoming season on the PUP list. Penny is reportedly doing well, but heMore suffered a torn ACL in December and that type of injury typically has a 9-10 month recovery timeframe.
