Rookie RB Kenneth Walker III sat out with a hernia issue in Week 1, but has made an immediate impact today against the 49ers, adding ten yards over four carries. The Seahawks used a second-round pick to select Walker in the 2022 draft.

Penny led Seattle in rushing yards with six carries for 15 yards. Travis Homer added two carries for nine yards.
