Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny will spend the offseason recovering from a torn ACL. He is taking an optimistic approach to his recovery.

Rashaad Penny recently took to Twitter to provide an update on his current status:

Head coach Pete Carroll also expressed how happy he was with the progress Rashaad Penny made following Seattle's loss to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC. Divisional Round, via

“He’s doing great,” Carroll said after the Seahawks were knocked out of the playoffs in January. “He’s ahead of schedule already. They’re really excited about the progress that he’s making. That’s a much longer prognosis there. He’s got six or seven months ahead of him that are going to be really challenging. We’ll have to wait and see. He’s really determined, his attitude is great about it. He’s planning on making it back and getting ready to play. So, we’ll see how that goes.”

It is certainly encouraging to see that Rashaad Penny seems to be making tremendous strides in his recovery. Unfortunately, the timing of the injury will make it difficult to determine his status by the time the 2020 NFL season rolls around.

Rashaad Penny has endured a rough start to his career as the former 27th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. The former first-round pick has since largely served as a complementary option to running back Chris Carson and their production compared with his latest injury indicates that this will not change any time soon.

Despite Penny's struggles, the Seahawks have been rather optimistic about his long-term potential. However, this recent setback will undoubtedly make it much more difficult for him to spark a potential resurgence in the 2020 NFL season.
