Doug Baldwin injury: Seahawks WR out Sunday with high ankle sprain

Grant Halverson

The Seattle Seahawks will be without receiver Doug Baldwin against the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

Seattle Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin is out of Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions with a high ankle sprain, Ryan Divish of the Tacoma News Tribune reports. The second-year wide receiver injured his ankle in the second quarter of Thursday's 13-6 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Baldwin has 11 receptions for 149 yards and a touchdown this season, one that has been marred by injuries. Baldwin missed a Week 3 game against the Green Bay Packers because of a shoulder injury and missed the entire preseason with a hamstring issue.

The 2012 season has been unproductive thus far for Baldwin even in games he played. Quarterback Russell Wilson has not targeted Seattle's leading receiver from a year ago as much as Seattle would likely want. Baldwin saw six targets in the season opener against Arizona, but he only caught two balls for five yards. Since then, he hasn't had a game of more than 75 yards, nor one with more than three receptions. He'll now be out for several weeks. Very tough situation for one of Seattle's most talented wideouts.

Baldwin played in 16 games last year as an undrafted free agent out of Stanford, catching 51 balls for 788 yards and four touchdowns.
