Monday Injury Rounds: Wide Receiver Update

Latest updates on Doug Baldwin and a full review of wide receiver injuries around the league.

During the regular season, details on player injuries are now reported on a seemingly minute-to-minute schedule. Information is less readily available through March. But as teams get closer to free agency, the draft, and post-draft mini-camps, new details emerge.

Players must make final decisions on surgical interventions to give themselves enough time to finish rehab before the end of training camp. Coaches and players are more readily available for questions at the scouting combine, the draft, and mini-camps. And the decisions front offices and coaching staffs make in free agency and the draft sometimes hint at where teams believe their injured veterans may be in their recovery.

Over the next few weeks, I'll be reviewing player injuries by position. I'll examine critical or confusing situations in depth. Expectations on all relevant injuries will be included in a table at the end of each article.

I'll keep each feature up-to-date through OTAs and minicamps, then combine all positions into one feature as training camps and the regular season approaches.

Wide receiver update

dOUG bALDWIN | cORE ABDOMINAL MUSCLE SURGERY / ARTHROSCOPIC KNEE SURGERY | liKELY TO RETIRE

While not official -- there are salary cap and league rules in play -- Baldwin is expected to retire. The Seahawks released him after a slow trickle of reports in late April prepared their fan base for the inevitable.

Here's a full breakdown of my thoughts on Baldwin's injuries, surgeries, recovery, and likelihood of retirement from earlier this offseason.

Should Baldwin change his mind, I'll update with thoughts on his future expectations.
