Here is the latest injury news as the Seahawks takes on the Los Angeles Chargers in preseason week two.

Who’s out

Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin is still out, just as he will be for the entire preseason. Baldwin is dealing with a knee injury. The good news, though, is that Baldwin has been seen in practice running nearly full speed so if Saturday was a real game, he would probably play.

Rookie running back Rashaad Penny broke his finger and will also miss the rest of the preseason. Like Baldwin, though, Penny would probably be able to play sooner rather than later if the games really counted.

Tyler Lockett, who got kicked in the calf in practice earlier this week, will miss Saturday due to a sore toe. There is no good reason for playing Lockett at this point anyway as Seattle knows what they will get from him. Preseason is all about who will make the team, obviously, and Lockett is going to make the team clearly.

Finally, another receiver is dinged up. Amara Darboh, who actually might be battling for a roster spot, won’t play with a hip flexor injury.

Who’s in

Defensive end Frank Clark will return this week after missing the first preseason game. Clark had wrist surgery this offseason and has been working his way back into form. He will probably play limited snaps as Seattle can ill-afford to lose another defensive end.

Rumor has it there will be a C.J. Prosise sighting today. Coach Pete Carroll says Prosise is “ready to go” and will get plenty of snaps. In a crowded running back room, Prosise needs to show he can stay healthy to make the team.

Other players who will get snaps after missing some time are cornerback Dontae Johnson and safety Maurice Alexander.

Cornerback Byron Maxwell is a game-time decision. Maxwell is almost certain to start at right corner in 2018, but it would be nice to see him get some reps before week one.
