Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin is once again out of practice due to a hamstring injury after returning just last week. Baldwin missed more than a week of training camp due to the injury, but returned last week. He is now out again after he had a procedure done on his hamstring this week.
The fact the injury required a procedure may not look like a good sign, but head coach Pete Carroll said it won't keep the second-year receiver out long.
"He had a little procedure done to clear up his hamstring that was very successful," Carroll said, according to the Seattle Times. "He'll be back in it next week for sure. Whether we play him next week or not -- I don't know that yet -- but he should be practicing full go and we'll return next week."
Baldwin is expected to play a major role for the Seahawks this season after he caught 51 passes for 788 yards and four touchdowns last season.
