Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said that he wants all of his running backs to see work against the Broncos in Week 1, but the team won’t force touches for anyone, including rookie Rashaad Penny. “We don’t necessarily have, ‘OK, gotta get this guy so many carries, gotta get this guy so many touches.’ We’ll just kind of see how the flow of the game goes,” Schottenheimer said. Chris Carson is the team’s clear lead back, with Penny likely second in the rotation. C.J. Prosise and Mike Davis could also factor in. Penny missed too much time in training camp and the preseason with a finger injury, so he may be eased into the offense. The rookie has plenty of upside, but he’ll be a risky flex play in Week 1.
