Rashaad Penny

Rashaad Penny, a running back for the Seattle Seahawks, shattered his fibula and hurt his tibia on Sunday and will be out for the rest of the season, as announced by coach Pete Carroll on Monday. Surgery is necessary to fix Penny’s wound.

“He’s in for a long haul. A tib/fib occurrence describes this situation. He fractured his fibula and sprained his ankle, which compounds the difficulty. Furthermore, a certain operation is used to fix the fractured bones, “On Monday, Carroll made the following statement on Seattle Sports 710 AM.

“It will take some time, so he won’t be able to play this season. It’s devastating news for a young man who had just returned to the program’s spotlight. He’s been fighting for this for so long, and losing it would be devastating.

\We were all really pleased with his progress because it was obvious to everyone. The surgical procedure is really well-defined, but it takes a very long time.” Penny, who finally found his footing late last season after a career marred by injuries, was injured at the conclusion of a carry in the third quarter of the Seahawks’ 39-32 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

After injuring his left leg, he was unable to put any weight on it and had to be helped to the Seahawks’ bench. Penny was seen with his head hung while being treated by the team physician and head athletic trainer before being taken to the locker room.

Before getting hurt on Sunday, Penny had eight carries for 54 yards. Ken Walker, a second-round draught pick by Seattle, ran 69 yards for a touchdown after the quarterback was knocked out of the game.

Even though Penny has become one of the most effective running backs in the NFL, he has just suffered an injury. In the last five games of the previous season, he had 671 rushing yards, 208 more than the next closest player in the league. His late-2021 surge carried over into 2022, as he rushed for 151 yards and two scores on just 17 carries the week before last.

Penny’s career had been plagued by injuries prior to this breakthrough. Even though he was selected 27th overall in 2018, he has been sidelined for 30 of a possible 69 games (including the playoffs) due to injuries over his first three seasons. In 2019, he suffered a ruptured ACL, which forced him to miss a significant portion of 2020.

Penny has been very forthright about how much his injuries have affected him, stating that one of the main reasons he decided to return to Seattle this summer was because he felt he owed it to the Seahawks after missing so much time. Penny was re-signed by the Seahawks for $5.75 million for one year with more than $5 million guaranteed.

The Seahawks, down to Walker and DeeJay Dallas at running back after Penny’s departure, claimed former Saints’ running back Tony Jones off waivers on Monday with Travis Homer on injured reserve (ribs) for at least two more games.
