Doctors diagnosed Baldwin with a Grade 2 partial MCL tear in his right knee, ESPN reports.

The Seahawks play the Bears on Monday night and then the Cowboys on Sept. 23.

Carroll said the Seahawks are promoting receiver Keenan Reynolds from the practice squad. The NFL’s transaction wire listed the release of safety Shalom Luani, whom they acquired for a seventh-round pick from Oakland on cut-down day.
