Pete Carroll on the radio show @SeattleSports says Kenneth Walker III will be back this week. Say “Kenny Walker will be there this week, let’s add.”

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said on Aug. 21 that there was “no time for the 21st game” Table” – Comeback after Hernia Surgery. The initial hope was to get him ready in time for the season opener against the Denver Broncos.

However, he could not leave. Rashaad Penny had 12 carries for 60 yards and two catches for seven yards to lead the backcourt 17-16.

As the 41st overall pick in this year’s draft, Walker is making his first NFL debut after a stellar performance at Michigan State. season. In Seattle’s preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers in August, he recorded 30 yards for 13 total yards on six touches.

In his only season as a Spartan after his move from Wake Forest, he amassed 1,636 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns in 12 games in his win over Walter Camp Awards Road D and Dock Walker Award Honors. He finished sixth in the Heisman Trophy voting. When healthy, Walker is expected to be a big part of Seattle’s offense. Carroll said in training camp that the rookie “can play all three games and we’ll be comfortable.” Penny, who led the team completing 119 passes for 749 yards and six touchdowns in 2021, believes he remains a staple of the backcourt. But Walker, who ranks second in the team’s depth list, should also play his part now.
