News you need to know
From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Sep 19): Baldwin (knee, back) will have an MRI Monday, September 19, for a knee injury he suffered in Week Two. He also experienced back spasms during the game.
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 19): Baldwin has back and knee issues coming out of the Week 2 loss to the Rams. His MRI came back negative so there's still a chance that he'll be ready for the plum matchup against the 49ers this week.
General News (Fri Sep 23): practiced fully on Friday and is not on the team's injury report. He will play this week.
General News (Thu Sep 22): is expected to play in the Week 3 game against the San Francisco. Head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday, Sept. 21, that Baldwin is "on track to play." Carroll said Baldwin's injury was a "little knee twist," and tests revealed no significant damage.
Week 3: vs San Francisco 49ers
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Russell Wilson couldn't find the end zone last week, with 22/35 for 254 yards passing, zero TDs and zero interceptions thrown (and 5/14/0 rushing vs. two sacks taken for -15 yards). Tyler Lockett (four targets for 4/99/0 receiving) and Jimmy Graham (four targets for 3/42/0) were the leading receivers last week, while Doug Baldwin eked out 3/20/0 receiving on six chances, while tweaking a knee (a MRI came back negative on the knee) and suffering from back spasms during the game as well. Keep an eye on his level of practice participation before plugging in Baldwin for Week Three as he is beat up entering this game. The 49ers were torched for four TD passes by Cam Newton (24/40 for 353 net yards passing, with one interception thrown and one sack taken for zero yards) last weekend, after shutting down Case Keenum in Week One (17/35 for 120 net yards passing, zero TDs with two interceptions thrown, and two sacks taken for -10 yards). San Francisco has swung wildly from week to week on defense so far this season, and come into this game reeling after allowing 46 points to the Panthers. This looks like a neutral matchup between teams trying to bounce back.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 2 vs LA (6 / 3 / 20 / 0 rec)
Baldwin was a rock, as usual. He is Wilson's go-to guy on third downs and led the team in targets, but was overshadowed by Lockett this game. Keep an eye on his status for week 3 as he reportedly is dealing with both knee and back injuries.
2016 Week 1 vs MIA (11 / 9 / 92 / 1 rec)
Always a Russell Wilson favourite, Baldwin made the first and last catches of the game, as well as several in between. His presence was especially felt in the final minutes, as he made a huge catch to convert a 4th & 4 first down, followed by a catch inside the five yard lineÖ. Followed by the game winner, a great catch near the sideline. Baldwin is the only receiver in the bunch who should be able to put up consistent numbers from week to week.
Latest NewsSeahawks | Doug Baldwin set to play (Fri Sep 23, 09:47 PM) - Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and he was not listed on the injury report for Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers. Our View: Baldwin had an MRI earlier this week, but it's obvious that everything is good to go now that we are entering the weekend. The 49ers defense was not impressive at Carolina last week and a healthier Russell Wilson should be in position to take advantage of it. Baldwin is a solid WR3/Flex this week.

Our View: Good news for Baldwin, but don't fall all over yourself getting him in the lineup. If he plays, consider him a WR3 with all the offensive problems the Seahawks are having.
