Receiver Doug Baldwin became a pleasant surprise for the Seahawks in 2011, as an undrafted free agent who caught 51 passes for 788 yards.
This year, a hamstring injury has kept him from getting ready for the season, and it has culminated in what coach Pete Carroll called a “little procedure” on his hamstring, according to Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times.
“He’ll be back in it next week for sure,” Carroll said. “Whether we play him next week or not — I don’t know that yet — but he should be practicing full go and we’ll return next week.”
Baldwin’s injury could help veterans like Braylon Edwards and Terrell Owens make the 53-man roster. If Baldwin can get healthy by August 31, however, one of those guys could be in jeopardy.
