Seahawks Facing Uncertainty At Wide Receiver
Braylon Edwards was inactive on Sunday after his knee swelled unexpectedly, Ben Obomanu suffered a wrist injury in Detroit and Doug Baldwin is unlikely to be back for this week's game after suffering a high ankle sprain on Oct. 18.
That's some serious uncertainty at wide receiver, which means the Seahawks might be making changes to the 53-man roster.
"We have to consider it because there's a little bit of uncertainty right there," coach Pete Carroll said Monday. "We're looking at our options here."
Obomanu and fullback Michael Robinson each saw a specialist after suffering wrist injuries in Sunday's game, and Carroll did not have an update on either.
Baldwin was able to run late last week after suffering a high ankle sprain during a special-teams play in the first half during Seattle's loss in San Francisco last Thursday, and while he hasn't been ruled out for Sunday's game against Minnesota, it doesn't sound like the Seahawks expect him to be ready.
"It's going to be a longshot for him to make it back," Carroll said. "He's trying. He did run last week. He ran at the end of the week. We'll just see if he can tolerate it."
Edwards' knee was being examined Monday after he suffered unexpected swelling in Detroit, which forced him to miss the game.
