Rashaad Penny, a first-round pick by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2018 NFL Draft, underwent surgery today to repair his injured hand. Here is the latest on the injury suffered by the former San Diego State star running back.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reports that Penny, who's expected to be a major contributor for the Seahawks in 2018, could be ready by the start of the 2018 season.

Penny underwent a successful surgery on his left pointer finger. He underwent surgery in Pennsylvania, per Rapoport.

Here are the full details.

"Seahawks first-round RB Rashaad Penny had successful surgery this morning at the hands of PA-based Dr Randall Culp, source said, fixing his pointer finger on the left hand. The hope is he’s ready by the opener," he tweeted.

Penny was the No. 27 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft by the Seahawks. He was a consensus All-American at San Diego State in 2017.

The Seahawks are set to open the 2018 season on Sept. 8 against Denver. That game will kick off at 4:25 p.m. E.T. It's unclear at this point if Penny will be available for that game, but as Rapoport tweeted, the hope is that he'll be able to play.

Stay tuned.
