Baldwin didn’t practice on Thursday, but Carroll said his receiver feels good entering Week 16.
“We think [he’s OK],” Carroll said. “He’s going to do a little more work tomorrow. He’ll go all the way to game time, but he feels very good. But we’re still going to be slow to bring him back. He’ll do some stuff tomorrow, then we’ll take it all the way to game time on that.”
In 14 starts this season, Baldwin has 65 catches and 13 receiving touchdowns, best in the NFL. He has caught 10 touchdowns the last four games, including two touchdowns last weekend against the Browns.
Jerry Rice is the only other player in NFL history to catch 10 touchdowns in four games.
The Seahawks are 9–5 and currently sit in second place in the NFC West behind the 12–2 Cardinals. The Seahawks have clinched a playoff berth, but they are mathematically eliminated from competing for the NFC West crown.
The Seahawks host the Rams on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET.
