Penny Hart: Secures future deal with Seattle

Hart secured a future contract with the Seahawks on Monday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Analysis: Hart spent the 2020 season being bumped on and off the active roster. It will likely take a few injuries before the 24-year-old receiver will grow into a larger role.

Penny Hart: Shuffles back to practice squad

Hart reverted to the Seahawks' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Hart logged three snaps on offense and 19 on special teams. The Georgia State product suited up in 13 total games this year, mustering up a mere 22 yards on two touches. Hart will remain on standby, but his role isn't expected to grow without an injury to a starter.

Penny Hart: Bumps to active roster

The Seahawks elevated Hart to the active roster Saturday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: Hart was also promoted for last week's game against the Rams, but he played just two snaps on offense. With no noteworthy Seahawks injuries, Hart will mostly serve as depth in Week 17.

Penny Hart: Shifts to practice squad

Hart reverted to the Seahawks' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Just two of Hart's 11 total snaps came on offense during Sunday's 20-9 win over the Rams, as he remains with one reception for three yards over 12 appearances this season. The wideout from Georgia State returns to a reserve role as Seattle prepares for its regular-season finale against San Francisco.

Penny Hart: Promoted to active roster

Hart was promoted to Seattle's active roster from the practice squad Saturday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: The 24-year-old was waived by the Seahawks at the start of the week, but he signed with the practice squad and will be a gameday elevation for Week 16. Hart has appeared in 11 games this season and has one catch for three yards and one carry for 19 yards.

Penny Hart: Signs with practice squad

Hart signed with the Seahawks' practice squad Wednesday, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: Hart was cut by the Seahawks to make room for Josh Gordon (suspension) on the 53-man roster. However, Gordon didn't fulfill the terms of his conditional reinstatement, and he'll remain on the commissioner's exempt list indefinitely. In turn, Hart could be an option to be elevated to the active roster in the near future.

Penny Hart: Shown door in Seattle

The Seahawks waived Hart on Monday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: Hart made his NFL debut this season and played 11 games for the Seahawks, posting a three-yard reception and a 19-yard carry. He was cut to make room on the 53-man roster for Josh Gordon, who has been reinstated from his suspension. If Hart clears waivers, he'll likely land on the team's practice squad.

Penny Hart: Healthy scratch Sunday

Hart (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Football Team.

Analysis: Hart logged a career-high 27 snaps on offense last week, adding 22 yards from scrimmage on two touches. His absence from the lineup corresponds with tailback Rashaad Penny's (knee) return to action. The Seahawks will roll with four wide receivers: DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, David Moore and Freddie Swain.

Penny Hart: Registers 22 total yards

Hart caught his lone target for three yards and rushed once for 19 yards in Sunday's 40-3 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Hart logged double-digit snaps on offense for the first time this season, totaling 27 due to the comfortable lead the Seahawks created. Still, Hart was deployed on an end-around in the first quarter, signaling he could be utilized with the occasional gadget play. With the playoffs looming, however, he'll likely revert to minimal usage going forward.

Penny Hart: Active for matchup against Rams

Hart (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Analysis: With Freddie Swain (foot) proving capable of fighting through a foot issue, Hart's presence in the lineup for Week 10 became less crucial. Nevertheless, Seattle will take all of the wide receiver depth it can get heading into an important divisional showdown. Hart will slot in as the Seahawks' No. 5 option at wideout against Los Angeles' second-ranked pass defense.

Penny Hart: Status uncertain for Sunday

Hart (knee) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Analysis: Hart has mainly served as wide receiver depth this season, playing just a handful of offensive snaps and receiving no targets through six games. His availability is important for Sunday's divisional tilt, however, as rookie Freddie Swain (foot) is considered questionable. The Seahawks only have three fully healthy receivers, and their backfield is banged up as well. If Hart's able to play but Swain can't go, the former should get some tread behind Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf and David Moore.

Penny Hart: Bumps to active roster

The Seahawks are promoting Hart to the active roster from the practice squad Tuesday, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Hart's forthcoming promotion could be an indication that Phillip Dorsett (foot), David Moore (ankle) and John Ursua (leg) aren't all locks to be available Sunday against Atlanta. He spent time on Seattle's practice squad in 2019.

Penny Hart: Fails to make final cut

Hart was let go by the Seahawks on Sunday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Hart earned a practice squad role with the team last year after being let go by the Colts earlier in the season, and it's likely he'll face a similar fate for 2020. The undrafted Georgia State product will look to find a depth role or a practice squad spot for the 2020 campaign.

Penny Hart: Remains with Seattle

Hart signed a reserve/future contract with the Seahawks on Tuesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: Hart was let go by the Colts with an injury settlement in early September, and he joined the Seahawks' practice squad in late October and remained there for the rest of the season. The 23-year-old went undrafted out of Georgia State in the spring and will look to take advantage of spending a full offseason with the Seahawks.

January 14, 2020 2:23 PM EST

Penny Hart: Lands injury settlement

The Colts waived/injured Hart (undisclosed) with an injury settlement Saturday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Analysis: Hart was sidelined for much of training camp due to a hamstring injury, though it remains unknown what sort of issue he's currently dealing with. The undrafted rookie out of Georgia State will search for a role elsewhere in the league when healthy.

Penny Hart: Reverts to IR

Hart (undisclosed) went unclaimed on waivers and was placed on Indianapolis' injured reserve Sunday, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Analysis: Hart originally sustained the injury in late July and returned to practice Aug. 20, although it's unclear in what capacity he practiced in. The 23-year-old went undrafted out of Georgia State in this year's draft and will have to wait to continue chasing his NFL debut.

September 1, 2019 11:54 AM EST

Penny Hart: Back practicing Tuesday

Hart (hamstring) practiced Tuesday, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Analysis: Hart had been nursing a hamstring injury for a few weeks now and finally made his return to practice Tuesday. It's unclear exactly what capacity Hart practiced in, but he should now have the opportunity to fight for a spot on the team's final roster.

August 20, 2019 11:30 AM EST

Penny Hart: Dealing with hamstring issue

Hart has yet to practice after sustaining a hamstring injury during Sunday's session, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Analysis: Hart originally signed with Indianapolis after going undrafted out of Georgia State. It's unclear how much longer the hamstring issue will keep him out of practice, but Hart will obviously need to get back soon and make a significant impression in order to have a chance at making the 53-man roster.
