Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate, who sat out his team's 20-16 Week One loss Sunday at Arizona, could return to practice on Wednesday. The third-year Notre Dame product left Seattle's preseason finale against the Oakland Raiders Aug. 30 with a sprained knee sustained while returning a punt and has not participated in practices since.
Tate returning is welcome news for the Seahawks, who lost some receiver depth when Charly Martin suffered a bruised lung laying out for a pass on Seattle's next-to-last play of the game in Phoenix. The Seahawks also expect Doug Baldwin, who took Tate's starting slot receiver position during the offseason, to be available this Sunday after he lost some teeth attempting a diving catch late in the fourth quarter against the Cardinals.
Tate, a second-round pick in 2010, had 382 yards receiving and three touchdowns last season.
