Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that receiver Doug Baldwin, who missed practice today with an ankle issue, is expected to be ready for Saturday’s game against San Francisco.

Baldwin tweaked his ankle midway through practice on Thursday.

“He couldn’t practice today, so we’re going to rest him until the weekend,” Carroll said. “He just turned his ankle a little bit yesterday, but we think he’s going to make it. He’ll be all right.”

Defensive tackle Clinton McDonald (concussion) returned to practice today, but was limited. However, linebacker Malcolm Smith (concussion) and cornerback Kennard Cox (hamstring) did not practice.

Carroll said that McDonald has a chance to play, but the other two will be game-time decisions.

Also, defensive end Red Bryant retuned to practice today. Bryant and wife Janelle had a healthy baby boy, Joseph Brooks Bryant, who arrived last night at 6 pounds, 15 ounces and 22 inches long.

“It’s a special moment,” Bryant said. “The best moment I’ve had in my life. His mom is doing great and my son is doing great, and I’m about to rush out of here and go see him. I can’t wait to go see him again.”

Bryant said his son is named in honor of his Godmother Sue Brooks, who passed away two years ago.

So will his son be Red Jr.?

“It’s probably going to come with the territory,” Bryant said. “I’m not going to push nothing on him. I want him to have his own identity. But I would be surprised if people didn’t call him Little Red.”

Things go interesting after practice in the locker room, where defensive end Anthony Hargrove and Richard Sherman had a dance off, to promote Justin Forsett’s new product, The Shower Pill.

    Ok, someone predicted yesterday that Red would have a 12 lb baby. I guess you were half right. Congrats Red!

  2. Matt Barkley is staying at USC for one more year. With the Seahawks not drafting until the middle of the first round, I’m starting to think we will be waiting another year to draft a QB. JS won’t reach just to get a QB….

    Lol. That’s great. The Shower Pill, eh? Um… if I don’t have time for a shower, I’m just not taking one. No shower pill for me, thank you.

    How come we never see O-lineman dancing? On second thought I probably wouldn’t want to see O-lineman dancing. Lol.

    Congratulations Big Red!

  5. Whoever picked the under won, big time! lol

  6. Anthony Hargrove

    So that means he’ll be on IR soon.

    So the Colts win.

    So who wins the tie breaking scenarios for luck if the Vikings, Rams, and Colts tie?
    And if just two of those teams tie?
