The Facts: Penny is not practicing after recently undergoing a cleanup procedure on his left knee, HC Pete Carroll said Tuesday. It is the same knee he injured Dec. 8, 2019, tearing his anterior cruciate ligament. “He had a serious knee injury," Carroll said. "Sometimes it just takes [a second] year to get back. Just the cleanup stuff and what he’s ready to take on right now, he can run full speed. We just want to make sure that his strength is balanced out in his quads."
Diehards Line:Penny played only three games in 2020 while rehabbing from the injury. He is entering the final year of his rookie deal due to make $1.948 million in base salary in 2021. Penny, 25, has played only 27 games in his three seasons since the Seahawks made him a first-round choice, rushing for 823 yards and five touchdowns.
