New, comments

That could be a big one for the Seahawks

We now have the Seattle Seahawks’ final injury report leading up to their Monday night contest against your Minnesota Vikings, and there’s one particular name on the report that could be a huge difference-maker for the home team.

Let’s take a look at the Seahawks’ final injury report:

The big name on the list for the Seahawks is wide receiver Doug Baldwin, Russell Wilson’s favorite target. Baldwin has not practiced all week with a groin injury, and Seahawks’ head coach Pete Carroll said that he would be a game-time decision.

If Baldwin is out for the Seahawks, it would be a huge blow to the Seahawks’ offense. Seattle is primarily a run-first team, but whenever they need a play through the air, more often than not Baldwin is on the receiving end of it. With the Vikings being down one of their starting cornerbacks with Trae Waynes being out, the Seahawks being without Baldwin might help to balance things out a little bit if he can’t go. If I had to venture a guess, though, I would expect Baldwin to give it a go on Monday night.

There are your injury reports for both teams going into Monday night, ladies and gentlemen. We’ll have more on this game as we get closer to kickoff in Seattle.
