Doug Baldwin has a sprained MCL

Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin missed time this summer while managing a sore left knee and he didn’t make it through the first game of the regular season before injury struck again.

It was Baldwin’s other knee this time and Seahawks coach Pete Carroll provided an update on the wideout’s condition after the 27-24 loss to the Broncos came to an end.

“He’s got a little MCL sprain in his other knee, so we’ve just got to see what that means,” Carroll said, via the team’s website. “He went back in the game and played some, eventually kind of talked him out of playing because he wanted to keep going, just to make sure we take care of him.”

The days to come will provide more insight into Baldwin’s outlook for the weeks to come. He’ll have one extra day to heal before the Seahawks are back in action against the Bears on Monday Night Football.

  1. Hawks will bounce back next Monday against the Bears. Marshall will score at keast 2 rds in his old stomping grounds. 1-1 heading into week 3 where they crush the Cowboys in the home opener. Ome will cry.

  2. LOL after facing Von Miller, Seattle now has to deal with Kahlil Mack, who will be lined up against Germain Ifedi. There will be a bunch of angry bears after they blew the game against a one legged Aaron Rodgers.

  3. Last season Seattle threw a lot of short, quick passes to Doug Baldwin, in order to avoid getting Wilson sacked. They seemed to think that their O line will be able to protect Wilson, so they are taking more time inside the pocket. The result is a lot more sacks. Now that Baldwin is hurt, may be they cannot go back to those short passes against Chicago. Rodgers threw short, quick passes against the Bears late in the game but Seattle may not be able to do that.

  4. Remember when Doug told anyone who would listen during all of August that his knee was injured? Funny how this comes out after the game.

    Seahawks are locked and loaded for 4-12!

    What? Hey Einstein, they held him out all pre-season because of his right knee being injured. Then during the game a d lineman rolled up his right knee. So now his right knee is hurt. Comprende?

    Wow. I’m not a fan of the Seahawks or anyone else in the NFC West, but I have to scratch my head over the comment.
    The Seahawks may or may not be headed for 4-12. But as bad as they looked yesterday, they were a hell of a lot more competitive than your Cardinals were at home against an underdog opponent.
    The Redskins manhandled and embarrassed your team in its own building, and the Cardinals laid down and took it, playing Flounder to the Skins’ Douglas C. Neidermeyer.
    “Thank you sir, may I have another?”
    I know, different scene and character. The point is, people who root for glass teams shouldn’t throw rocks, not even at Seahawks.

  7. The schedule looks bleak for Seattle. They could win as few as 2 games. They rank 27th in rushing, with 64 yards gained in their first game. Meanwhile the Beast Mold is running like his old self against the LAmbs Monday night in Oakland.
