There was some progress on the injury front for the Seattle Seahawks on Wednesday. Most notable was wide receiver Doug Baldwin, who suffered an ankle sprain against San Francisco and missed last week's game at Detroit, but the Hawks' top slot receiver returned to practice in a limited basis.
Baldwin wasn't expected to make it back this week, and he still may not play Sunday, but the fact he was even a limited participant is encouraging news, as the Tacoma News-Tribune's Eric Williams points out in his report.
Also limited were guard John Moffitt (knee) and defensive back Byron Maxwell (hamstring).
Defensive tackle Jason Jones (ankle) and wide receiver Braylon Edwards (knee) did not practice. The loss of Edwards for another week would be a big blow to Seattle's thin receiving group.
Running back Marshawn Lynch, who is often rested due to a back condition, was a full participant.
For the Minnesota, former Seahawks tight end John Carlson did not practice, due to a concussion.
Several Vikings were limited participants: safety Mistral Raymond (ankle), cornerback Antoine Winfield (knee), receiver Percy Harvin (hamstring) and running back Adrian Peterson (ankle). Peterson has been dealing with his ankle injury for a while now, but it hasn't slowed him much, as he is the league's leading rusher.
Minnesota also got several players completely back today, as Fred Evans, Letroy Guion, E.J. Henderson, Chris Kluwe and Christian Ponder all fully participated.
With several days left in the practice week, both teams are hopeful that their limited participants will be ready for Sunday.
