The Seattle Seahawks put out their final injury report Friday for their home opener this weekend. It’s the most encouraging report so far.
The Seattle Seahawks play their first division game Sunday in Arizona. As they do every week, Seattle released their final injury report Friday afternoon. With one possible exception, this was probably the most optimistic injury report since the season started.
Back in Action
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson gets his favorite target back on Sunday. Doug Baldwin had his first full practice on Thursday since injuring his right knee in the preseason. Back in August, he admitted his left knee wasn’t going to be 100% this year and then hurt the other one. Although he will be playing with two gimpy knees, Baldwin still has great hands and does a good job getting separation from defenders. He’ll help open the field for the offense.

Also back is center Justin Britt, who was battling a shoulder injury, was a full participant in practice since Tuesday. Joey Hunt was very good as his replacement, but it will be good to have the anchor back on the line.
Finally, Russell Wilson (hamstring) appeared on the injury report earlier this week, causing some concern. He is off the injured list and good to go.
Not back in action
Left guard Ethan Pocic returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday. Last week J.R. Sweezy did an admirable job moving from right guard the previous two weeks to replacing Pocic on the left side. Also, it may be a minor miracle but there is a slight chance that oft-injured running back C.J. Prosise could play Sunday.
It was a bit of a surprise that running back Chris Carson was limited in practice all week after running over the Dallas defense last Sunday. Carson is listed as questionable for Arizona, if he has to come out of the lineup, rookie Rashaad Penny will have to step up. Dion Jordan is still fighting a hip injury. The defensive end didn’t practice on Tuesday and Wednesday but was a limited participant on Thursday.
Finally, back up safety Delano Hill isn’t quite back to full health, but he did practice fully on Thursday.
