Seahawks' injury report: Seattle thin at WR with injuries to Doug Baldwin, Ben Obomanu, Braylon Edwards

The Seahawks are running out of healthy receivers, as Sunday's game against Detroit brought more injuries to the depleted group.

The Seattle Seahawks are down to three healthy wide receivers on Monday, as Ben Obomanu suffered an injury to his wrist in Sunday's loss to the Detroit Lions. Braylon Edwards was a surprise inactive for the game as he woke up with swelling in his right knee, and that was on top of Doug Baldwin already out with a sprained ankle. Head coach Pete Carroll may be forced to consider other options, according to the Tacoma News Tribune.

Carroll told reporters on Monday that it is unlikely that Baldwin will make it back for Week 9's matchup with the Vikings, via the Seattle Times:

"It's going to be a longshot for him to make it back," Carroll said. "He's trying. He did run last week. He ran at the end of the week. We'll just see if he can tolerate it."

Injuries to the wide receivers are coming at a time when rookie quarterback Russell Wilson seems to be taking a step forward in the passing game. Wilson had previously struggled on the road, but he completed 25-of-35 passes for 236 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Lions on Sunday.

Seattle will try to get back on track and break a two-game losing streak at home this weekend. The Seahawks are 3-0 at CenturyLink Field in 2012.
