The Facts: After his 2019 season ended in early December due to a torn ACL, Penny reported he literally got back on the bike during Tuesday's rehab work. "First day on the bike.. blessin," he posted on his official Twitter feed.
Diehards Line: Penny's injury came just as he seemed to be finding a groove alongside Chris Carson. The second-year back scampered for 129 yards on 14 carries with a TD in Week 12 and added 74 yards on 15 totes with a score in Week 13, then the injury struck. HC Pete Carroll noted after the season that Penny's ACL surgery also required cleaning up other issues but added the young running back was already ahead of schedule. Getting back on the bike less than two months after surgery is a good sign, but there are many more steps for Penny to take before the start of the season. The former first-round pick will be one to monitor as we get closer to the 2020 campaign, as he could be a candidate to start the season on the PUP list if he's ready by Week 1.
