The Seattle Seahawks have won four of their last five games and now sit at 6-7, with a chance -- albeit a slim one -- to sneak into the NFC playoff picture. Seattle will likely need to win out, and that challenge starts Sunday at Solider Field against the Chicago Bears. The Bears are 7-6, meaning the Seahawks can actually pull ahead of the Bears with a win on Sunday thanks to the head-to-head tiebreaker.
Rookie receiver Doug Baldwin didn't practice Wednesday thanks to an ankle injury. The Stanford product broke out last week against the St. Louis Rams on Monday night football, hauling in seven passes for 93 yards and a touchdown. Baldwin has put together a nice rookie year, and now has 45 catches for 718 yards and three touchdowns on the season.
The other notable player to miss practice on Wednesday for Seattle was guard Robert Gallery. The former Iowa Hawkeye sat out with a hip injury.
