Seattle Seahawks Running Back Rashaad Penny Has Surgery on Broken Finger
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seattle Seahawks first-round pick Rashaad Penny had surgery Wednesday to repair a broken finger.
Head coach Pete Carroll said the surgery went well and Penny isn't expected to miss more than a couple of weeks.
The rookie running back out of San Diego State was injured during pass-blocking drills Monday and left the field with trainers.
Carroll said he believes Penny can still be ready for the start of the regular season.
Penny carried eight times for 16 yards in his preseason debut Thursday against the Indianapolis Colts. He also caught two passes for seven yards. He has been the second backup in the team's rotation behind Chris Carson, who had gained the starting job last year after being a seventh-round selection out of Oklahoma State.
