Seahawks Optimistic Injured Offensive Stars Will Play Sunday
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks are optimistic injured offensive starters Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett and Thomas Rawls will be able to play Sunday against San Francisco.
Coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that all three have a chance of being available after suffering injuries in the Seahawks' Week 2 loss at Los Angeles. Baldwin and Lockett suffered minor knee injuries, while Rawls has a muscle strain in his left leg. Carroll seemed most pessimistic about Rawls, whom he said would be limited in practice early in the week.
Carroll said quarterback Russell Wilson was ahead of where he was at this point a week ago in his recovery from a sprained right ankle suffered in the season opener. He said guard Germain Ifedi had a chance of returning this week. Ifedi sprained an ankle days before the opener.
