According to the Seattle Seahawks' official Twitter account, wide receiver Doug Baldwin looks like he's going to be "ready to go" per head coach Pete Carroll, who was addressing the media after practice on Friday.

Baldwin, the second-year receiver out of Stanford, played in the first six games of the season catching 11 passes for 149 yards and a touchdown before suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers and missed the team's Week 8 game against the Detroit Lions.

He was first considered a "long shot" to play in Week 9, but after returning to practice fully, it looks like he'll be on the field to give quarterback Russell Wilson another option down the field.

Last year Baldwin finished his rookie season with 51 catches for 788 yards and four touchdowns, which was fourth in receiving yards among rookies in 2011 behind A.J. Green, Greg Little and Julio Jones.

The Seahawks host the Vikings on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. PST.
