When discussing the sore knee that began bothering wide receiver Doug Baldwin before the start of training camp on Tuesday Demarcus Robinson Jersey
, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said it was a “little bit of a problem.”
Carroll said that the team would be resting Baldwin for at least a couple of weeks, but a report on Wednesday extends that timeline deeper into August. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Baldwin is expected to miss “most, if not all, of the preseason.
The report adds that doctors are “hopeful and confident” that Baldwin will be able to resume his on-field work before the start of the regular season.
The coming weeks will surely bring further updates about when Baldwin will get back on the field. The longer it takes for that to happen Vincent Valentine Jersey
, the more worry will grow that the knee issue will plague him into the regular season. Given Baldwin’s importance to the team and the lack of sure things behind him on the depth chart, that would be a worrisome outcome for the Seahawks as well.
The New York Jets signed former Lions linebacker Brandon Copeland and re-signed defensive lineman Xavier Cooper on Monday.
Copeland missed last season after tearing a pectoral muscle during the preseason. He had 30 tackles and one forced fumble in 32 games the previous two seasons with the Lions.
The 26-year-old Copeland is expected to serve as a backup on defense and be a key part of the Jets' special teams unit.
"Too many different levels of excitement to put into words," Copeland told the Jets' website. "Coming off of injured reserve, having to sit every Sunday Brooks Reed Jersey
, Monday and Thursday and watching other people play, I'm first and foremost excited to get back to the game that I love."
He signed with Baltimore as an undrafted free agent out of Penn in 2013 and spent time later that season on Tennessee's practice squad. After signing with Orlando of the Arena Football League in 2015, Copeland impressed Detroit after participating in the NFL Veterans Combine. His grandfather, Roy Hilton Matt Bosher Jersey
, played for the Baltimore Colts against the Jets in the Super Bowl in 1969.
"He played defensive end against Joe Namath and all those guys," Copeland said. "I know he's going to be very proud of his grandson and now my job is to continue to make him proud."
Cooper was not tendered as a restricted free agent, but was brought back to serve as a rotational defensive lineman. He had 16 tackles and one sack in eight games, and his play increased when Muhammad Wilkerson was benched at the end of last season.
Cooper was a third-round pick by Cleveland out of Washington State in 2015. He has also spent time with San Francisco Bronson Kaufusi Jersey
, and has 56 career tackles and three sacks. Tennessee Titans Customized Jerseys
