Word is that Seahawks safety Earl Thomas is set to play against the Cowboys on Sunday despite missing a pair of practices this week for what’s been described as personal reasons Ethan Pocic Jersey , but those absences may have other ramifications.Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that the Seahawks are considering a “significant fine” against Thomas. The fines would come under the category of conduct detrimental to the team for the missed practices.Thomas vowed not to return to the Seahawks without an extension and sat out the offseason, training camp and preseason before returning just before the season opener. A trade was talked about while he was away from the team and Mortensen reports that some around the league believe the team did not want to make a deal before Sunday’s hope opener against the Cowboys.If they do make a deal, Mortensen reports the Chiefs are a potential landing spot. The Cowboys have been discussed as a potential trade partner as well, but are referred to as a “super long shot” after an offer of a second-round pick for Thomas was rejected. Seahawks first-round draft pick Rashaad Penny quickly has fallen off the radar screen, and his reaction is what you would expect it to be.“He鈥檚 handling it but he鈥檚 frustrated and that鈥檚 exactly what I want,” coach Pete Carroll told reporters on Tuesday. “I want him to be frustrated, I want him to be anxious to get out there, I want him to be unsatisfied with what鈥檚 going on right now. That鈥檚 fine. I think that鈥檚 the only way he should be. He鈥檚 classy and he鈥檚 for the team and every time he would say anything, he would always talk about the team first so he鈥檚 got his priorities in line and I expect him to keep battling.”Penny currently sits behind Chris Carson and Mike Davis, and Penny had zero rushing attempts or pass receptions on Sunday against the Rams.鈥淗e鈥檚 just looking for his opportunity, he鈥檚 dying to get in there,” Carroll said. “He鈥檚 just scratching, clawing to get back out there and get more turns. There just wasn鈥檛 enough [opportunities] Shaquill Griffin Jersey , but this is a long season, there鈥檚 a lot of carries, there鈥檚 a lot of running to be done. I can鈥檛 wait to see him get in there and get going too. He鈥檚 done nothing but good stuff for us.”Carroll believes that the finger injury suffered by Penny in August has contributed to his current status.“It certainly did,” Carrol said. “In your rookie camp, you don鈥檛 want to miss a month, that鈥檚 pretty hard. It just did, but he鈥檚 back now. He鈥檚 worked really hard in the last few weeks, the last three weeks, to make sure that he wouldn鈥檛 just arrive, but he鈥檚 there in shape ready to go and ready for the opportunity to come. He鈥檚 taking a good step forward.”It feels like he’s taking a step backward. A week after getting nine carries (and turning them into 49 yards), Penny was the odd man out against the Rams. His next opportunity will come in London, when the Seahawks face the Raiders.
