Seahawks-49ers injury report: Doug Baldwin likely to play, Rashaad Penny out

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Well there’s some good news and bad news for the Seattle Seahawks’ road game against the San Francisco 49ers.

The good news is that wide receiver Doug Baldwin is on track to play after missing last week’s win over the Minnesota Vikings with a hip injury. He’s battled various injuries all season but nothing has kept him out long-term.

Bad news? No rookie RB Rashaad Penny, who came out of the Vikings game with a sore knee and won’t be able to go this weekend. It’s the first game he’s missed in his young Seahawks career due to injury, and the hope is that the upcoming MRI does not reveal anything major. He was quite durable in college, which surely factored into Seattle taking him in the first-round, but he has been on the injury report a couple of times dating back to preseason.

What does this mean for the Seahawks running game? Expect JD McKissic to have some level of involvement alongside Mike Davis, while Chris Carson carries the workload as usual.

DJ Fluker is doubtful with a hamstring injury, so Jordan Simmons is likely to start at right guard again. K.J. Wright was limited in practice but he’ll be given more time to recover from his knee injury. Maurice Alexander was concussed on the final kickoff in the Vikings game so the veteran safety is also out.

Jarran Reed (oblique) and Bradley McDougald (knee) join Baldwin on the questionable designation.

Here’s the full injury report for both the Seahawks and 49ers:
