Doug Baldwin expects to play Week 1

With K.J. Wright uncertain for season opener Shaquem Griffin could start

With K.J. Wright uncertain for season opener Shaquem Griffin could start

Rookie Shaquem Griffin has been the primary backup behind Wright at weakside linebacker. "We don't have any choice for that thought right now until we know more". He had a game-high nine tackles in Seattle's preseason opener and has been pushing to carve out a part-time role on defense in addition to playing special teams.

Carroll said he didn't know how many weeks Wright would be out, nor if he'd be back for the opener. "We'll see how it goes". Baldwin, who had been resting a knee injury, won't play in Seattle's preseason finale this week, but is expected to play in the regular-season opener.

Carroll reiterated that wide receiver Doug Baldwin, out for most of training camp with a knee injury, will be ready for Week 1. Monday, Baldwin was back in a helmet and doing individual drills for the first time since he was shut down after the first two days of training camp. "It's really good to see him back out there running around and feeling great". He's had a really good ramping up to get to this point. Carroll previously said Baldwin had traveled out of town to receive an unspecified treatment on his knee but declined to specify whether it was the anti-inflammatory treatment Regenokine, which several Seahawks players underwent last summer. Carroll was vague about the nature of Wright's injury, other than saying it didn't happen on a hit during the game against the Vikings.

Rebel leader Alexander Zakharchenko killed in explosion in Ukraine
Aleksandr Zakharchenko was the head of the so-called DNR since November 4, 2014, he survived several assassination attempts. Ukraine and its Western allies accuse Russian Federation of funnelling troops and arms across the border.

That would be a huge void to fill, and when head coach Pete Carroll was asked about it, he wasn't sure if Wright will be ready in time to play that first week. Depending on Wright's recovery, the status of cornerback Byron Maxwell and the lingering holdout by safety Earl Thomas, the Seahawks could have just one defensive starter from either of its Super Bowl teams on the field against Denver: Wagner.

"He's making progress right now".

Defensive end Dion Jordan remains on the physically unable to perform list, but still has a chance to get back next week ahead of the opener.
