Seahawks’ Baldwin has hamstring procedure

RENTON — Seattle Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin had a procedure done to clear up a hamstring issue, but should be ready to practice next week, head coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday.

However, Carroll said he’s uncertain if the team’s leading receiver from last year will play in the in the final preseason game against Oakland.

Baldwin practiced last week, but was a late scratch for the Denver game, the second straight game he missed because of injury. With Baldwin out, Deon Butler continues to get first team reps at the slot position.

Rice could play

Carroll did not rule out receiver Sidney Rice playing in his first preseason game against the Chiefs. Rice was full go on Monday, and took a decent whack from safety Earl Thomas on a catch across the middle of the field.

“I don’t know that yet, but he had a great day today,” Carroll said. “This was Sidney’s first full-speed, all out, one-on-ones and everything today. It was the first time he had a full-go day where we really cut him loose and let him do everything.

“And he got banged around, which is great. He made some good catches today. He looked very fast out there. And it’s exciting to see.”

Injury update

The Seahawks had 15 players watching practice on Tuesday, including center Max Unger (calf), fullback Michael Robinson (toe), running back Marshawn Lynch (back), tight end Cameron Morrah (toe), offensive guard John Moffitt (elbow), linebacker Allen Bradford (hip), cornerback Ron Parker (knee), defensive end Jason Jones (knee), cornerback Coye Francies (head), defensive lineman Pep Levingston (knee), linebacker Matt McCoy (knee and defensive back Roy Lewis (unspecified). Cornerback Walter Thurmond (leg) and offensive lineman James Carpenter (knee) remain on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. … Undrafted rookie free agent defensive end Cordarro Law returned to the field after suffering a high-ankle sprain last week. Others who returned to practice include receiver Ben Obomanu (neck), linebacker Mike Morgan (head), tight end Zach Miller (head) and linebacker Malcolm Smith (hamstring).
