Rashaad Penny has an uphill climb ahead in his recovery from a torn ACL, but the Seattle Seahawks running back is on the right path.

The 24-year-old shared an encouraging post on Twitter Tuesday that he is "back on the bike," quite literally.

Penny's sophomore campaign came to a halt on December 8, when he suffered a torn ACL against the Los Angeles Rams. Unlike teammate Chris Carson, who avoided surgery on his hip, Penny did undergo surgery to repair his ACL as well as additional work that needed cleaning up.

"He's doing great," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said of Penny during exit interviews last month. "He's ahead of schedule already. They're really excited about the progress that he's making. That's a much longer prognosis there. He's got six or seven months ahead of him that are going to be really challenging. We'll have to wait and see. He's really determined, his attitude is great about it. He's planning on making it back and getting ready to play. So, we'll see how that goes."

Penny emerged as the Seahawks No. 2 back before his injury, showing a lot of promise. He carried 65 times for 370 yards and three touchdowns in 2019 in 10 games. His road to recovery will certainly be a long one, but it's encouraging to hear Penny's making progress in his return to action.
