Seattle Seahawks rookie running back Rashaad Penny got just as many carries on Sunday as starter Chris Carson, but the two had very different days. While Carson averaged over seven YPC, Penny totaled just eight yards and looked overmatched. Penny was the team’s first-round draft pick and is thus considered to be the starter-in-waiting, but head coach Pete Carroll is famous for his mantra of always compete, so Carson may have the main gig for quite a while. It remains to be seen how much of a timeshare it will be.
