Definitely something to keep an eye on, as Charbonnet would instantly be an RB2 option if Walker is forced to miss Week 1. The dreaded heavy rotation we've feared since the team grabbed Charbonnet in the second round may be in effect sooner rather than later.
For the Eagles, this could put a damper on the prospects of Philadelphia re-signing Miles Sanders. Though with Penny's injury history, it's improbable that he will be the only back they add in the offseason.
In Seattle, Ken Walker is setting up for a pure bellcow role with only the likes of DeeJay Dallas, Godwin Igwevuike, etc. sitting behind him.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said before practice Tuesday that Ken Walker was “a little sore coming out” and would not practice, and then seemed to imply it’s not certain that Walker will play against the Chiefs.
“We will see how this week goes,” Carroll said. “We have to give him every day to get back.”
Shortly after, it was revealed that the Seahawks had re-signed veteran Gallman to the practice squad, which is at least a sign they aren't sure of Walker's status for Week 16. Walker is dealing with what the team was calling a "jammed" foot, which caused him to miss Week 14's game. Seattle travels to KC in an early Saturday game so owners will be able to adjust lineups depending on Walker's status.
