The Seahawks also elevated WR Cody Thompson to their active roster.

Penny will miss at least the Seahawks’ next three games while on injured reserve. 

Penny, 25, is a former first-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2018. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $10,765,436 contract that includes a $5,909,408 signing bonus with the Seahawks.

Seattle declined his fifth-year option this past May, which would have cost the Seahawks $4.523 million fully guaranteed for the 2022 season. 

He was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list back in August of last year due to a knee injury. He was later activated in December. 

In 2021, Penny has appeared in one game and rushed for eight yards on two carries.

Ogbuehi, 28, is a former first-round pick out of Texas A&M by the Bengals in the 2015 NFL Draft. He played out the final year of his four-year, $9,325,682 million rookie contract that contained $8,728,997 fully guaranteed.

The Bengals declined to pick up Ogbuehi’s fifth-year option for the 2019 season and he later signed on with the Jaguars. The Seahawks signed him to a one-year contract worth $3.3 million last year and brought him back again in 2021. 

In 2020, Ogbuehi appeared in eight games for the Seahawks, making five starts for them.
