Running back Rashaad Penny was placed on injured reserve , and there was already one open spot on the roster with tight end Gerald Everett on the reserve /COVID-19 list. Additionally, linebacker Benson Mayowa, who was listed as questionable Friday with a neck injury , has been downgraded to out. Parkinson, who injured his foot in training camp, will provide depth at tight end with Everett still on the COVID-19 list, while Ogbuehi gives Seattle another option at right tackle with Brandon Shell ruled out due to an ankle injury .

The Seahawks designated running back Rashaad Penny to return from injured reserve Friday. Now, can he stay healthy? Penny has missed almost as many games as he has played since the Seahawks ’ made him a first-round choice in 2017.

Rashaad Penny, of course, has been unavailable, either as an inactive or on injured reserve since the opener due to a calf strain, and has yet to fully showcase what he can do after recovering from two knee operations over the past 22 months. With the status of backup, but now starter due to the neck injury of starter Chris Carson, Alex Collins’ in question following his own injury in Week 6, Penny’s presence will be welcome. He joins second year running back DeeJay Dallas and third year man Travis Homer as depth for the Hawks behind Geno Smith, who is set to make his second start for the Seahawks following the loss of Russell Wilson due to injury.

As reported by Mike Garofolo earlier in the day, in order to make room for Penny on the roster, the Seahawks are releasing veteran tackle Cedric Ogbuehi.
