CHARLOTTE—With Doug Baldwin questionable for Sunday's game due to a groin injury, the Seahawks added depth at receiver, promoting Keenan Reynolds from the practice squad. Tight end Darrell Daniels was waived to make room on the 53-man roster.
Reynolds, a sixth-round pick out of Navy in the 2016 draft, first signed with the Seahawks in May. He was released prior to the start of the season, then signed to the practice squad. Reynolds was then added to the active roster following the season opener in which Baldwin sprained his knee, then was waived in October and re-signed to the practice squad after appearing in two games.
With Baldwin sidelined for much of training camp and the preseason, Reynolds got a lot of work as a slot receiver, including a start in Seattle's third preseason game in which he had three catches for 25 yards.
On Friday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said of Baldwin, "We're going to work him out in pregame and make sure he's OK." Baldwin did not practice on Thursday or Friday, but did run Friday, Carroll said.
Daniels, who played at the University of Washington, was acquired in a trade with Indianapolis prior to the start of the season. He has appeared in nine games this season, starting two, and also spent time on the practice squad.
The Seahawks and the Panthers have faced off 12 times, including three postseason matchups. The Seahawks currently own eight wins in the series and will play the Panthers again this Sunday in Week 12 of the 2018 NFL season.
