Baldwin's answer came after being asked if he will be full go, without restrictions, next week while preparing for the Seahawks' season opener September 9 at Denver. "It's something I got to deal with for the rest of the season". "We took a good look at it and we're going to do a scope job and get him back really quick".

Carroll has said that Baldwin will be available for Seattle's September 9 opener against the Broncos in Denver. Wright's backup is rookie Shaquem Griffin. "We don't have any choice for that thought right now until we know more. He's really chomping at the bit to get back to the field, and we'll just have to see how it goes".

RENTON, Wash. (AP) - The Seattle Seahawks' remodeled defense could be without one of its top holdovers when the regular season begins.

Wright had an orthopedic procedure known as Regenokine on his knee a year ago during training camp.

On a more positive note, receiver Doug Baldwin practiced again for the first time since the opening week of training camp. However, Baldwin may not be 100 percent for the first game - or at all throughout the entire season.

That plan appears to have worked. "It's really good to see him back out there running around and feeling great".

The Seahawks will finish preseason play against the Raiders on Thursday.

It came on the same day Frank Clark, the team's lone proven returning pass rusher, missed another practice after a hyperextended elbow. But he was back at free safety primarily on Monday with Delano Hill at strong. Wright said he didn't suffer a specific injury, but rather sought the treatment for an issue that had bothered him since June workouts. Carroll did not give a further timeline.

"He's back in action", Carroll said.
