Scottie Upshall Jersey
For most of the past month Womens Deryk Engelland Jersey , Doug Baldwin has been a spectator as he dealt with a sore left knee that kept him from participating in Seattle Seahawks practices.
It may be how Baldwin and the Seahawks end up managing most of the upcoming season for Seattle's No. 1 wide receiver.
"I'm probably about 80-85 percent right now and the truth of the matter is it won't be 100 percent," Baldwin said. "It's something I've got to deal with for the rest of the season."
At least Baldwin is back on the field and showing signs of progress. He won't play in the preseason finale Thursday against Oakland, but the expectation is that he will be ready for the regular-season opener Sept. 9 at Denver. The month of waiting to get back into practice has been difficult for Baldwin to handle.
"To be out this long ... it was hard. It was hard emotionally. It was good to be back out there," he said.
The team has offered few specifics about Baldwin's knee. Coach Pete Carroll simply called it a sore knee. Baldwin was coy when asked if he's undergone surgery, saying, "It depends on your definition of surgery."
Whatever the full extent, it's clear the issue is something Seattle will have to manage with rest if it expects to have Baldwin for the entire season.
"It will be something we have to manage throughout the course of the year. It will be day to day Miles Wood Jersey ," Baldwin said.
Baldwin practiced two days at the start of camp before becoming a spectator and spending more time in the training room than on any field. He said the knee issue emerged during the first week of OTAs in the spring and he did not participate in the team's mandatory minicamp in June.
Once he realized the knee wasn't responding as he hoped at the start of camp, it became a race to see if he could be ready for the start of the season.
"The first two days of camp realized it wasn't where we wanted it to be in order for me to sustain the level of play, being able to express myself athletically, that I want to," Baldwin said. "So it was time to do something more serious."
Baldwin is coming off a down season by his standards. He had 75 catches, 991 yards and eight touchdowns in 2017 as Seattle's overall offense took a step back. A year earlier, Baldwin had a career-best 94 receptions Scottie Upshall Jersey , and in 2016 he had 14 touchdown catches.
He understands his role in Seattle's offense may be different this year with the addition of new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and a wide receiver group that includes newcomers Brandon Marshall and Jaron Brown. Not being able to be part of training camp has made the transition to the new offense a bit tougher.
"Obviously I would have liked to have some game reps and more practice because I am a rep guy and especially now with the new offense," Baldwin said. "I would like to get the physical reps, especially with the quarterback trying to get that chemistry and build that rapport. I've been playing football since I was little. It's really not that much different for me. I've been in the league now going on eight years, at this point it should be like riding a bike."Following a whirlwind opening night in the NFL draft, the Baltimore Ravens can kick back during the second round before getting down to business.
On Day 2 of the draft, the Ravens have two third-round picks: the first one and No. 83 overall.
At least that's how it stands now.
If the first round taught us anything, it's that nothing can be taken for granted when Ozzie Newsome is calling the shots in the draft room.
On Thursday night Seth Jones Jersey , Newsome twice traded back before picking South Carolina tight end Hayden Hurst at No. 25.
Then Newsome jumped back into the fray after it seemed the Ravens were done. He swapped his second-round pick, a fourth-rounder and a 2019 second-round pick to the Eagles to get No. 32, which garnered Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson.
So, heading into Friday, the Ravens hope to garner success with the third-round pick they got from Buffalo on Thursday night and No. 83, which Newsome somehow found a way to retain.
Having added a much-needed tight end and his quarterback of the future, Newsome and the Ravens can focus Friday addressing some of their other needs.
A right tackle Zach Parise Jersey , a center, a wide receiver and a pass-rushing defensive end are among the priorities.
"We got some really good opportunities," said assistant general manager Eric DeCosta, who will take over for Newsome in 2019. "We're in good shape."http://www.officialusafootballs.com/washington-redskins
