The Seattle Seahawks gave Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny equal time at running back in Week 1, but that may not be the case moving forward.

Carson had 51 yards on seven carries, while Penny totaled just eight yards over the same number of rushes.

Pete Carroll praised Carson and suggested that Penny was affected by the time he missed this summer with a broken finger.

"Chris I thought looked really good," Carroll said. "He was really aggressive and did what he could with the plays that he had. Rashaad looked a little rusty to me and I visited with him about it. He really only had one good week of practice and coming back and it wasn’t enough -- he needed more work and he wasn't as responsive as he has been earlier on before he had to sit out for a while, and so he's got to work real hard to make sure that he is ready to go and we will work him in. We love the chance of getting him in there. We are going to keep looking for it. But Chris really took the lead at that position after that game."
