Rashaad Penny, the Seahawks’ starting running back, returned to practice on Tuesday. Due to groin stiffness, he was forced to miss the opening preseason game.

Ken Walker III, a backup running back, did not participate in practice.

Pete Carroll, Walker’s coach, stated after practice that Walker has a hernia problem but didn’t go into any detail.

Walker was selected by the Seahawks in the second round this spring. He began the first game of the preseason on Saturday and participated in the 12 offensive plays and 1 special teams play. He gained 19 yards on five carries and 11 yards on one reception.

Walker was commended by Carroll last week, who said that he had “turned the page” on his difficulties with pass protection in college.

Carroll remarked, “He could play all three downs, and we’d feel comfortable with that.

Initially, Ken Walker’s hernia problem was discussed on Pro Football Talk.
