The SportsXchange

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin should play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, two weeks after sustaining a high ankle sprain, according to the Seattle Times.

Baldwin was expected to take longer to heal, but practiced all week to the surprise of coach Pete Carroll on Friday.

"You can't even explain it, but he pulled it off," Carroll said. "It would be great to see him play."

Though Baldwin is likely returning to action, wide receiver Braylon Edwards is ruled out with a knee injury. He did not practice this week.

Defensive tackle Jason Jones did not practice this week because of a sprained ankle and is ruled out.

Defensive lineman Alan Branch should be back in time for Sunday's game after being absent from practice Friday due to a death in his family.

Cornerback Walter Thurmond is eligible to be activated from the physically-unable-to-perform list but his status is uncertain. He has to be activated by Saturday to play on Sunday.
