According to Michael-Shawn Dugar, coach Pete Carroll said that Walker was “running and catching some balls,” but he also described Walker’s recovery schedule as “unpredictable.” He probably won’t be ready for Week 1, but we’ll keep an eye on him.
Because of a hernia ailment, Seattle Seahawks‘ promising rookie running back Kenneth Walker III missed all of the preseason. The Seahawks are taking things one step at a time with their second-round draft decision, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Walker III was one of the most impressive players throughout the preseason and was expected to get the bulk of the carries, but whether or not he will make his NFL debut in Week 1 remains to be seen.

When healthy again, Walker III will play a key part in Seattle’s backfield, but until then, Rashaad Penny will be the starter. Given that both Caroll and General Manager John Schneider praised Walker III throughout training camp, he still has tremendous fantasy value. If you’re a fantasy football manager, you’ll just have to sit tight and watch how the Seahawks rookie performs.
After Walker III, Travis Homer is listed as a possible possibility for fantasy rosters until the rookie’s comeback. Seattle used Penny (119 carries) and Alex Collins (108 carries) almost equally last season, so DeeJay Dallas could get some carries here and there in his absence.
A native of Tennessee, Walker entered the world on October 20, 2000, in the town of Arlington. While playing football at Arlington High School, he rushed for 3,485 yards and 41 touchdowns. He is signed to play collegiate football for Wake Forest.
Walker spent the 2019-2020 academic years as a Wake Forest player. In those two seasons, he amassed 1,158 yards on 217 carries, enough for 17 scores. Walker enrolled at Michigan State University for the 2021 season after transferring from UCLA.
was so good in his debut season at Michigan State that the coaching staff immediately made him a starter. He had a breakout day in his first game with the Spartans, rushing for 264 yards and four touchdowns.
The four touchdowns he scored were double the total scored by Michigan State running backs in the 2019 season, and they came in the 2020 season. Walker III won the 2021 NCAA season’s Doak Walker and Walter Camp Player of the Year awards. In the wake of the season, he made the decision to skip his final year of college and enter the 2022 NFL Draft.
