WR Baldwin returns to practice, CB Sherman new to injury report

Rookie receiver Doug Baldwin returned to practice Thursday after sitting out a day earlier with an ankle injury, a good indicator that the team’s leading receiver will be fine for Sunday’s game in Chicago.

Also encouraging for Seattle was the fact that linebacker David Hawthorne practiced today. Hawthorne, who has been dealing with a knee injury all season, only practiced once last week. He sat out Wednesday, but being back today is a sign of progress.

The only new addition to the report is CB Richard Sherman, who is listed as having a knee injury. Sherman practiced fully yesterday, and seemed to be walking around just fine, so there’s a good chance he is just dealing with some soreness and getting a day to rest. We’ll find out more on that tomorrow.

As for the Bears, the very high-profile addition to the practice report WR Sam Hurd, who is listed as not injury related, which is a nice way of saying got busted trying to purchase copious amounts of drugs from an undercover agent.
