Kenneth Walker III Misses Team Practice on Friday

Seattle Seahawks running back Kenneth Walker III (hernia) missed team practice on Friday, per ESPN’s Brady Henderson.

Walker is trending towards missing out on the season-opener on Monday night against the Denver Broncos. He’ll have Saturday to hopefully post a limited status at the bare minimum, but two straight days of a DNP is not an ideal sign. This is a situation worth monitoring as we await the official designation Walker receives over the weekend.

It leaves Rashaad Penny to take the majority of the workload with Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas as the off-pace backs for Monday’s action. Penny is likely the only fantasy-relevant back here, who should shoot up running back rankings once the rookie is officially ruled out.
