The Seahawks went through their second practice of the week on Thursday and once again, defensive tackle Jason Jones and wide receiver Braylon Edwards did not practice.
Both players missed last week's game against Detroit. Jones is still dealing with an ankle injury while Edwards is working through a knee injury which caused him to be a late scratch on Sunday against the Lions. Rookie defensive end Greg Scruggs also missed practice on Thursday, sitting out with an oblique injury.
While those three missed practice, wide receiver Doug Baldwin and guard John Moffitt both participated fully on Thursday. Both were limited in practice on Wednesday. Baldwin missed the game against Detroit with a high-ankle sprain while Moffitt has missed the last five games due to a knee injury. Moffitt was limited in practice last week, but Thursday was the first time he's practiced fully since Week 3.
Getting Baldwin back for this week's matchup with the Vikings could be potentially huge for the Seahawks' offense, so the fact that the 2nd year slot WR practiced fully is very encouraging.
Coach Pete Carroll continues to list Baldwin's status for Sunday as "wait and see."
Asked if he was counting on being in uniform against the Vikings, Baldwin said, "Yeah, definitely. I'm showing them that I'm capable of being out there running around and cutting."
Getting Baldwin back under any circumstances would be a boost for the still-growing passing game. But it would be huge this week, with the status of Braylon Edwards in question because of a knee situation and Ben Obomanu being placed on injured reserve after damaging his wrist in Sunday's loss to the Lions in Detroit.
"It's the game of life, the game of football," Baldwin said. "Things happen. People go down, unfortunately. Nobody wants to be injured, but that's just the way it happens sometimes."
