Seattle Seahawks rumors address Doug Baldwin’s injury and his possible return to the field this week. Baldwin spoke to the News Tribune about his status, even though he has officially been listed as questionable on the Seahawks’ injury report.

Baldwin is dealing with a strained groin that he suffered against the Tennessee Titans last Sunday. A worst-case situation would be if he rushes back and re-injures himself. That could lead to long-term issues for the Seahawks, especially if it forces him to the sidelines for a large chunk of the regular season.

It’s a tricky situation for Baldwin and the coaching staff.

Will Baldwin remain a game-time decision?

Coach Pete Carroll continues to say that Doug Baldwin is going to be a game-time decision for the Seattle Seahawks. The small piece of good news is that the Seahawks play Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts, giving the team time to work with him during the day. That’s really bad news for fantasy football owners, though, as his situation is as clear as mud. If the decision is left up to Baldwin, he is going to be on the field this week.

Through three games this season, Doug Baldwin has 20 catches for 212 yards and a touchdown. He is close to a pace that will net him another 1,000-yard season, but he hasn’t had a huge impact on the offense this year.

Last year, Baldwin continued to be the favorite target of quarterback Russell Wilson, catching 94 passes for 1,128 yards and seven touchdowns. Those numbers are the reason so many fantasy football owners made him an early selection in 2017 drafts.

How do Seahawks stack up against Colts?

Heading into Week 3, many NFL experts were picking the Tennessee Titans to beat the Seattle Seahawks and that’s exactly what happened.

This is despite how good the Seahawks’ defense had looked. That defense got a bit shredded in the ground game, proving that there was still some work for the coaching staff to do in preparation for the Week 4 game against the Indianapolis Colts. It might not be a stretch to guess that the Seahawks’ defense is looking to make a statement against the struggling Colts.

Game time for Seahawks vs. Colts is 5:30 PM PT on Sunday night (Oct. 1). The Seahawks are currently 13-point favorites to win this game and the over/under is at 41.5 points. That projects to a roughly 27-14 finish, with the Seahawks improving to 2-2 on the season. It might not be necessary for Doug Baldwin to be active for this game, but he makes life much easier for Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks every time he takes the field.
