Carroll: Seattle's Rashaad Penny 'feeling a little bit of groin tightness'

Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny (groin) is not expected to play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

What It Means:

After a DNP in Thursday's walk-through, Penny is unlikely to suit up for the Seattle's first preseason game with groin tightness. In a potential run-first approach behind Pro Football Focus' worst rated offensive line, Penny is expected to share Seattle's backfield with rookie Kenneth Walker. Per Fantasy Football Calculator, the 26-year old's average draft position in 12-team point per reception leagues currently stands in the sixth round.

Penny's 2022 yearly projection includes 204.2 rushing attempts for 949.9 yards and 6.8 touchdowns and 17.7 receptions for 127.0 yards and 0.6 receiving touchdowns.
