Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin Active For Sunday's Game vs. Colts

Doug Baldwin is active for the Seahawks' Week 4 game, while Neiko Thorpe and C.J. Prosise are both out with ankle injuries.

The Seahawks will have their leading receiver available Sunday. Despite battling a groin injury this week, Doug Baldwin is active for Seattle's Week 4 contest against the Indianapolis Colts.

Baldwin, who left last week's game with the injury after catching 10 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown, was listed as questionable Friday, but showed enough in pregame warmups to be declared active.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and Baldwin both expressed optimism that the receiver would be able to play, but his status was still in question heading into Sunday.

"Doug made it through practice today, did a nice job," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Friday. "We've got to make sure all the way up to game time that he's feeling good enough to carry out a full game plan and all of that. We're prepared if he's not able, but he looked good today and he's very confident that he's got a chance. But we will wait all the way until Sunday evening until we make that declaration."

As expected, running back C.J. Prosise is out with an ankle injury. Prosise ran on Friday for the first time since sustaining the injury, Carroll said, but was listed as doubtful. With Prosise sidelined, running back J.D. McKissic is active for the first time this season, and could take on a lot of the third-down responsibilities usually reserved for Prosise.

"I think you'll see J.D. McKissic jump up, as well as Chris (Carson) and all the other guys sharing the duties and stuff," Carroll said. "But J.D. is a guy who has been groomed to be in that spot."

While McKissic and Eddie Lacy are active, along with starter Chris Carson, running back Thomas Rawls is inactive for Sunday's game.

Cornerback Neiko Thorpe will miss a second straight week with an ankle injury. Thorpe was listed as questionable, but Carroll didn't sound optimistic about the special teams standout's chances when asked Friday.

While the Seahawks will be without two key special teamers in Thorpe and Dewey McDonald, who was placed on injured reserve earlier in the week with a knee injury, they are getting back another key special teamer, linebacker D.J. Alexander. Alexander missed last week's game with a hamstring injury.

"I'm pleased D.J. Alexander made it back," Carroll said. "He'll be ready to go this week and that's a really big addition back into the special teams group. It's something we really needed and missed him and excited to have him back."
