Doug Baldwin injury: Seattle WR has high ankle sprain

Grant Halverson

Seattle Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin has been ruled out against the Detroit Lions in Week 8 and could miss even more time.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that receiver Doug Baldwin will miss Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions because of a high ankle sprain suffered in Thursday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He added that Baldwin could be out a couple more weeks, according to 710 ESPN Seattle's Liz Mathews.

The second-year receiver left the 13-6 loss to San Francisco in the second quarter after turning his left ankle. After leading the Seahawks with 788 yards on 51 receptions last season, Baldwin has struggled to remain healthy this year. He also missed a Week 3 game against the Green Bay Packers with a shoulder injury.

And in the games he has played in, Baldwin has struggled to produced. He was targeted six times in a Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, and since has no game with more than three receptions and no game with more than 74 yards.

Baldwin has 11 receptions for 149 yards and a touchdown in 2012.
