Listen: Game Slowing Down for Seahawks Rookie RB Rashaad Penny

Following Sunday's 43-16 win, Penny spoke with reporters about improved practice habits, studying film, and much more.

After struggling to find the field consistently during the first half of his rookie season, Seattle Seahawks first round pick Rashaad Penny has found his groove over the past month.

As the game has slowed down for Penny, he's started to emerge as the impact player the Seahawks envisioned he would become when they selected the dynamic running back out of San Diego State with the No. 27 overall pick in this year's NFL Draft.

Over Seattle's past four games, Penny has rushed 31 times for 223 yards and a healthy 7.1 yards per attempt while scoring his first two NFL touchdowns. Rotating with starter Chris Carson and steady reserve Mike Davis, the trio running behind a much-improved offensive line has catapulted the Seahawks to the top of the league in rushing yards.

Following Sunday's 43-16 win over the 49ers, Penny discussed numerous topics with reporters, including his thoughts on complementing Carson, taking advantage of his opportunities, and how improved practice habits have translated to the field.

He’s coming along pretty good. Just need to keep feeding him the ball. I like the triple threat we have with Carson, Davis, and Penny.

Like a lot of young players, a bit of maturity goes a long way. He is realizing it takes more then athleticism to be successful in the NFL. Filmwork & hitting the playbook will go a long way to making him a stud in the future....

@Census as a former running back, unless it's affecting his ability to hold the football properly, he shouldn't have any issue playing in this game. If he's good to go carrying the ball, he will play.
