The Seahawks received mostly good news on the injury front Wednesday with receivers Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett practicing.
The Seahawks have received mostly good news on players who were injured Sunday or have been injured in recent weeks, coach Pete Carroll said during his Wednesday press conference.
Carroll said receivers Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett and running back Thomas Rawls all are likely to play Sunday against the 49ers. Baldwin and Lockett — who each had knee injuries each participated in the team’s walk-through and are expected to practice Wednesday. Rawls will be limited after being kicked in the leg and suffering a leg strain but has a good chance to play Sunday.
Carroll also said quarterback Russell Wilson is further ahead this week at this point than he was last week at this point.
Carroll said Baldwin suffered a twisted knee with exams not revealing any significant damage.
