Coach Pete Carroll was able to provide a number of injury updates during his final press conference of the year this week – including some good news with regard to running back Rashaad Penny.
“He’s making really good progress,” Carroll told reporters on Monday. “He was hoping if we went deep in the playoffs that he would have a chance, that’s how positive he is about it. But the ankle repair he had is intricate, the high ankle thing where they’re tying stuff together – they’ve got some really cool technology that makes him stable and ready to come back.”
Penny signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks last season and is set to become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year if no new contract with Seattle is reached.
“So he’ll be back for camp and all that if we can get him back,” Carroll said. “So he should have a good solid recovery.”
