Doug Baldwin to get knee MRI, dealt with back spasms

New, comments

The Seattle Seahawks got into a physical contest with the Los Angeles Rams. We break down some of the fallout.

The San Francisco 49ers face the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3, and we’ll get our first look at the injury report on Wednesday. In the meantime, we have a couple updates for the Seahawks.

We know about Russell Wilson’s high ankle sprain. He made it through Week 2, but was held without a touchdown pass. Part of that is the Seahawks general struggles against the Rams. But he is playing below 100 percent, and it will be something to track this week.

The most notable news relates to Seattle’s No. 1 receiver. Doug Baldwin twisted his knee in the game, and will undergo an MRI on Monday. He finished up the game after the twist, so odds are pretty good he will be able to play this Sunday. Additionally, he said he dealt with back spasms, having taken a shot to the back.

Running back Thomas Rawls replaced Christine Michael in the starting lineup, but he left early with what Pete Carroll described as a leg contusion. Rawls had seven rushes for -7 yards before departing. Given his struggles, it would not be surprising to see a pretty even split with Christine Michael. And if Rawls’ contusion remains an issue, he could end up on the short end of the committee.

Tyler Lockett also suffered a knee injury, but he returned in the fourth quarter and had a 53-yard catch. He might end up on the injury report, but he should play this Sunday.
