The Seattle Seahawks can’t exactly afford any more bad news about their running game after losing top running back Chris Carson for the season.

Unfortunately for them, the hits keep on coming.

Huard: Seahawks have a two-pronged problem on defense

Rashaad Penny was ruled out Saturday afternoon for Seattle’s Monday night game on the road against the Washington Football Team due to a hamstring injury. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, starting left guard Damien Lewis (elbow) and fellow running back Travis Homer (out) were also ruled out.

Five total players were ruled out by the Seahawks on Saturday with cornerback Tre Brown, who is no surprise after suffering a season-ending patella injury, and  backup tackle Jamarco Jones (back) rounding out the list. Without Jones or Lewis, Seattle will need to start a third-string player on the offensive line on Monday night.

With Penny, a former Seahawks first-round pick who has struggled to stay on the field and is set to become a free agent after this season, and Homer both sidelined, Seattle is down to Alex Collins, who has been the team’s most consistent rusher this season, and DeeJay Dallas at running back. That likely spells a player being elevated from the practice squad for Monday.

Collins hasn’t been entirely healthy this week, either, as he was listed as limited in practice for Thursday, Friday and Saturday with an abdomen injury.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said during a press conference Saturday that Penny and Jones could both end up on injured reserve, per’s John Boyle.

There is a little bit of good news for Seattle in that no other players were listed as doubtful or questionable for Monday on Saturday’s injury report.

The Seahawks play Washington at 5:15 p.m. Monday, with the radio broadcast being carried live on both 710 ESPN Seattle and KIRO Radio 97.3 FM starting with the pregame show at 2 p.m. For details on how to stream Seahawks Radio Network broadcasts online, click here.
