Seattle Seahawks reserve running back Rashaad Penny will miss several weeks after aggravating a calf injury in the team’s victory on Sunday, NFL Network reported.

Penny was hurt after just two carries for eight yards against the Indianapolis Colts. Alex Collins is expected to become the primary backup to starter Chris Carson.

Penny played in just three games last season due to injuries.

Penny was a first-round pick (27th overall) in 2018 out of San Diego State but has rushed for only 831 yards and five touchdowns in 28 NFL games.

The Seahawks (1-0) host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
