As was detailed in this space Wednesday, Doug Baldwin took exception with Pete Carroll assessment that the receiver was a long-shot to play this week after missing last week’s game with a high-ankle sprain. Baldwin backed that up by returning to practice Wednesday on a limited basis, and on Thursday he was a full participant in practice, indicating that he has a decent shot of getting back. That would be a remarkably quick turnaround for a player with that type of injury. Often players with high-ankle sprains miss four to six weeks, though the recovery time can vary quite a bit based on the severity of the injury.

DE Greg Scruggs was new on the injury report with an oblique injury and did not practice.
