Report: Doug Baldwin to miss most, if not all, of preseason

When discussing the sore knee that began bothering wide receiver Doug Baldwin before the start of training camp on Tuesday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said it was a “little bit of a problem.”

Carroll said that the team would be resting Baldwin for at least a couple of weeks, but a report on Wednesday extends that timeline deeper into August. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Baldwin is expected to miss “most, if not all, of the preseason.

The report adds that doctors are “hopeful and confident” that Baldwin will be able to resume his on-field work before the start of the regular season.

The coming weeks will surely bring further updates about when Baldwin will get back on the field. The longer it takes for that to happen, the more worry will grow that the knee issue will plague him into the regular season. Given Baldwin’s importance to the team and the lack of sure things behind him on the depth chart, that would be a worrisome outcome for the Seahawks as well.

  1. More snap and competition for the young WRs on the team. Maybe Marshall will make the roster?

  2. Seems like a pretty thin group behind him. They gotta hope he is ready to go and doesn’t reinjure it once he hits the field. Letting Richardson go to WAS left them pretty thin at experienced guys.

  3. The rams went all-in while Goff is on his rookie deal after they’ve seen what has happened to the Seahawks. Russel Wilson got paid and he’s got ZERO weapons around him.

  4. I remember winning the SuperBowl with a bunch of “pedestrian” receivers and everyone was knocking them. Same tired stuff again. Look at training camp and Marcus Johnson, Jaron Brown, the two new guys we added, one came in third in the hundred yard dash in the Olympics. I mean there is size, speed and hunger! Angry Doug will be fine and Darboh will step up as well. Go Hawks!

  5. Seahawks have been through this dance before having a bunch of no names (low draft picks, UDFA, ETC.)make the roster and play significant time for team. They ended up winning the Superbowl. I’m not saying the Seahawks will win the whole thing but I’m not sweating losing Michael Bennett, Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas (hold out), Cliff Avril, Paul Richardson, and others being injured right now. Seahawks have talent that are waiting in the shadows like some of these receivers behind Doug on the depth chart.
    I will say the one player that the Seahawks lost that will hurt is Kam. He was not only a great player, but he was the attitude/tone setter for that entire team. I don’t see any players on the roster besides Wagner that can bring the wood like Kam did. T2 has great ball skills and is coming into his own at Safety but nobody can hit like Kam did and strike fear into the opponents.

  6. Pete Carroll’s low mark in Seattle has been 7-9, and that was with a roster of other teams’ cast offs and no QB. As long as Wilson is healthy for 16 games it’s 9-7 floor and 12-4 ceiling.
