Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin may miss ‘a couple weeks’ with knee injury

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin’s latest knee injury could keep him out at least a couple weeks, coach Pete Carroll said.

Baldwin did not play in the second half of Seattle’s season-opening loss to the Broncos in Denver after suffering what ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported to be a Grade 2 partial tear of his right MCL. Baldwin also missed about a month of training camp because of an injury to his left knee.china nike nfl jerseys cheap

“He’s really gonna go a few days at a time here,” Carroll said Tuesday. “Let’s see what happens. We’ll wait and see. We don’t know yet. It could be a couple weeks. It could be a couple weeks, and we’ll find out. He’s as tough as you get. We’ll need to wait.”2

The Seahawks could also be without linebacker K.J. Wright for a second straight game when they play the Bears in Chicago on Monday night. Carroll said Monday on his 710 ESPN Seattle radio show that it would take a “miraculous return” for Wright to make it back this week, though he was more vague Tuesday about Wright’s potential availability.

“We’re gonna see what happens. He is running, so he’s back to moving and all that. He’s had a really clean rehab in the short time he’s had,” Carroll said. “He’s very positive about it, but I can’t tell you what that means for the weekend. I don’t know that yet.”cheap nfl nike jerseys from china

Baldwin went down in obvious pain in the first quarter of Seattle’s 27-24 loss to Denver. He tried to limp off the field before he went down again and had to be tended to by Seattle’s medical staff. Baldwin eventually walked off the field on his own power and returned to the game later in the first half, but he was on the sideline in street clothes after halftime.

“He’ll be able to get back from this, yeah,” Carroll said. “He’ll come back from it. It just depends. We’ve got to see it through. It’s really early in the year. We’ve got to take care of him and look after him first and foremost. We’ll only do what he’s capable of doing, with the OK from the docs, too.”
