Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin suffered an MCL sprain in Seattle’s 2018 regular-season opener against Denver, said head coach Pete Carroll following his team’s 27-24 loss at Broncos Stadium at Mile High.
“He’s got a little MCL sprain in his other knee, so we’ve just got to see what that means,” Carroll said, referencing an injury to the opposite knee that kept Baldwin from playing throughout preseason. "He went back in the game and played some, eventually kind of talked him out of playing because he wanted to keep going, just to make sure we take care of him.”
Exactly how long the injury will keep Baldwin out is unknown at this point, but more information should become available when Carroll meets with the media again on Monday and Wednesday of this week.
Elsewhere on Seattle’s injury front, safety Bradley McDougald, who had two interceptions against the Broncos, played through an injury to his patellar tendon, said Carroll. Safety Delano Hill saw playing time for the Seahawks when McDougald was off the field.
“He had a little problem that was kind of flaring up in I think his patellar tendon or something like that, he had a little tendinitis or something like that,” said Carroll.
