Training camp season always brings its lot of injuries, and the Seattle Seahawks are amongst the teams that have not be spared in the matter. While there is no urgency for teams to play their potential starters considering the actual NFL season doesn't begin until early September, the Seahawks' injury list isn't getting any shorter which could mean potential problems as the team inches closer to this year's NFL kick-off.
In an interview with KIRO-AM earlier this morning, Coach Pete Carroll once again clarified concerns over Doug Baldwin's status, alluding to the fact that he had only suffered a strain to the "upper part of his foot". The 28 year-old had been seen leaving the field during yesterday's fully-paded practice after having fallen somewhat awkwardly following an accidental low hit. As per reports, Carroll is being precautionary with the team's number one WR by allowing him sufficient time to heal his injuries in anticipation of the NFL regular season.
Unfortunately for the Seattle coach, Seahawks inside Gregg Bell reports that Baldwin is only one amongst many who are being sidelined for medical reasons. As of this morning, it would appear that TE Luke Wilson is also missing a second consecutive practice.
The season is weeks away, but the injuries seem to be a daily occurrence for the team, and the issue may quickly become problematic as the days roll by. The Seahawks will be kicking off their preseason against the Log Angeles Chargers this upcoming Sunday, in preparation for their season opener on September 10 against the Green Bay Packers.
