Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin suffered a Grade 2 partial MCL tear during the team’s season-opening loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday, an injury that is far worse than initially anticipated, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.
It was initially reported that Baldwin suffered only an MCL strain, but instead it was a partial MCL tear occurred in Baldwin’s right knee, the same knee that kept the veteran receiver out for the entire preseason.
Baldwin is likely to miss several games due to the injury.
Bears, Adrian Amos in Contract Talks
“At this point it’s really the waiting game. I want to be back in Chicago. Chicago has been talking back and forth, they want me back,” Amos said (h/t Pro Football Rumors).
“But we’ll see how things shake out. Nothing is certain right now. It’s still a little early. Over the next couple weeks, I guess we’ll find out a lot more.”
Amos stated that he would like to remain in Chicago.
“I would like to be back, but the business part of it, it’s complicated sometimes,” Amos said. “Things still could happen, but I have to be prepared for all scenarios. I’m not writing anything off and that was the team I was drafted to as well. There could be a chance that I’m back and there could be a chance I’m anywhere. That’s the crazy thing about this situation where my contract’s up so anything could really happen. I’m just sitting back and really waiting to see what happens.”
Amos talked about the loss of Vic Fangio, who moved on to be the head coach of the Denver Broncos, who could also be a potential destination of Amos.
“I don’t know, but obviously that would be a fit where I know the defense and things like that,” Amos said. “But it’s not something that I’m pinpointing like, ‘Hey, I want to go there,’ or anything like that. I’m just keeping all options open. First and foremost, I’m a Bear right now, so that’s a main focus early on. But if that doesn’t work out, then I have to explore what team fits me best, what team gives me the best opportunity to take care of my family as well as progress on the football field.”
