Doug Baldwin Injury: Receiver Expected To Play Sunday Vs. Cowboys

Wide receiver Doug Baldwin should be back in the lineup Sunday as the Seattle Seahawks play their home opener against the Dallas Cowboys. Baldwin missed making a diving catch on a Russell Wilson pass on the Seahawks' final drive in their 20-16 loss to the Cardinals Sunday; he landed on top of the ball and had the wind and some teeth knocked out of him, according to the Seahawks official blog:

Wide receiver Doug Baldwin will have dental work done on Tuesday after he "got his teeth knocked in," as Carroll put it, on that fateful final drive while trying to make a lunging catch in the end zone.

"It was (a) mess," Carroll said. "But he’ll be OK, I think, this week."

Baldwin made two catches for five yards in Sunday's game.
