For the third straight practice, Pro-Bowl receiver Doug Baldwin was a spectator during training camp, and following Tuesday’s practice, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll gave an update on his team’s leading receiver.
“We’re working on taking care of a little bit of a sore knee coming into camp,” Carroll said. “So we’re going to give him a good break here. We’re just going to take our time with it and be patient.”
Asked a timeline on Baldwin’s return, Carroll said, “We’re going to give him a couple of weeks here before we bring him back out to make sure we’ve ramped him back up properly. He came into camp a little bit off, so we just want to make sure that we take care of him. We know exactly what’s going on, and he’s doing some special treatments to make sure we’re taking care of him, and we want to bring him back in shape so we can really get him ready for the long haul.”
Carroll gave a couple other updates on sidelined players, saying receiver David Moore “has a little hip flexor thing,” and linebacker Marcus Smith had a tight hamstring.
On defensive end Dion Jordan, who is still on the physically unable to perform list, Carroll said, “He’s going to be a while. Word is it’s going to be a while, he’s got a little bit of healing to do.”
The injury is not related to the offseason knee surgery Jordan had. Said Carroll, “He’s got a stress issue on his other leg and he’s got to wait it out.”
