RENTON [url=]Harrison Smith Jersey Big[/url] , Wash. (AP) — Pete Carroll insisted through the offseason the Seattle Seahawks would return to their roots of being based around a solid run game.

They’ll need to be that way at least in the short term, with wide receiver Doug Baldwin likely out the next couple of games because of an MCL injury in his right knee suffered in the season-opening loss to Denver.

Carroll was evasive about an exact timeline on Baldwin and vague about the specifics of the injury. He said it would be “maybe a couple of weeks” for Baldwin, but would only say it would be difficult for Baldwin to be able to play next Monday against Chicago. As for the injury itself, Carroll said “he does have MCL issues,” but provided no other details.

No matter how long Baldwin is out, it’s bad news for Seattle’s offense, which showed flashes in the opener against Denver but had too much inconsistency, especially on third downs.

“He’ll be able to get back from this. He’ll come back from it. It just depends. We’ve got to see it through,” Carroll said. “It’s really early in the year and we have to take care of him and look after him first and foremost and then we’ll only do what he is capable of doing.”

Baldwin was injured in the first quarter of Sunday’s 27-24 loss to Denver. He was rolled up on from behind and left the game, only to return for a brief stint in the second quarter. Baldwin changed out of his uniform into sweats and watched the second half from the Seattle sideline. He played just 11 of 55 offensive snaps.

To add depth at wide receiver, Seattle moved Keenan Reynolds from the practice squad to the active roster and released safety Shalom Luani, who was acquired in a trade with Oakland at the end of training camp.

While the absence of Baldwin will put more attention on veteran Brandon Marshall and Tyler Lockett, the biggest boost to Seattle’s offense would be getting its run game going. Seattle had 16 total rushing attempts against the Broncos [url=]David Bakhtiari Jersey[/url] , 14 of those by running backs. Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny each had seven carries, although Carson was far more productive and appears to have earned the nod as the primary ball carrier.

Carson finished with 51 yards on his seven carries, along with three receptions. Carroll said Penny is still regaining his form after missing the final couple weeks of the preseason following hand surgery.

“Chris was really good and really aggressive with the plays that he had,” Carroll said. “Rashaad looked a little rusty to me and I visited with him about it. He had only one really good week of practice coming back and it wasn’t enough. He needs more work. He wasn’t as responsive as he was before he had to sit out a little while.”

The reasons for Seattle’s lack of a run game were plenty, including penalties and down-and-distance situations. But the biggest culprit was Seattle’s inability to extend drives. Seattle was just 2 of 12 on third downs and had no conversions in the first half, when it ran a mere 24 offensive plays.

Seattle’s first third-down conversion didn’t come until midway through the third quarter, when Russell Wilson hit Marshall on a 20-yard touchdown on third-and-7. Carroll was most irritated about Seattle missing on several third downs of five yards or less.

“Every one of them should have been conversions. That changes the complexion of everything about the game,” Carroll said.

NOTES: Carroll said there were no other injuries of significance coming out of the game. … Rookie LB Shaquem Griffin had a rough debut with a few mistakes, Carroll said. Griffin had two tackles and saw Austin Calitro take some of his playing time. “He had some problems on some stuff,” Carroll said. “He got fooled on a couple of things, but he played hard, played tough.”

The Minnesota Vikings can cross another core player off their to-do list for contract extensions.

Linebacker Eric Kendricks became the latest recipient of a new multi-year deal, when he re-upped with the club on Monday. After being drafted in the second round out of UCLA in 2015 [url=]Mike Daniels Jersey[/url] , Kendricks has led the Vikings in total tackles in each of his first three seasons.

The only other player in franchise history who's accomplished that feat was Rip Hawkins, who did so over his first four years from 1961-64.

"He represents us in a first class way out in the community. He's a leader in the defense. He's a leader in our locker room. His work ethic, his prep that he puts in week in and week out, is why he is such a dynamic player on Sunday," general manager Rick Spielman said. "Hopefully we will continue to add players like Eric as we continue to build this roster and move forward."

During training camp in 2017, the Vikings signed defensive end Everson Griffen, nose tackle Linval Joseph and cornerback Xavier Rhodes to contract extensions to keep them from reaching free agency. Kendricks has one season left on his rookie contract. This deal, according to reports by ESPN and NFL Media, is worth as much as $50 million over five years with $25 million guaranteed.

Up next in the extension queue: linebacker Anthony Barr, wide receiver Stefon Diggs and defensive end Danielle Hunter, all with rookie contracts set to expire after the 2018 season.

"The hype is real. Everybody is super excited," Kendricks said on a conference call with Minnesota reporters. "We're always excited to play football here. I think it's the best locker room I've ever been in. We've got the best defense I've ever been on. I'm just excited to play for this team. With the addition of Kirk Cousins, it's not going to hurt us by any means at all. I'm just excited to see how he can sling the rock. I'm excited to practice against him [url=]Rasmus Ristolainen Jersey[/url] , especially."

Last season, Kendricks had a career-high 136 total tackles. He has two interception returns for touchdowns since entering the league plus 30 tackles for loss, 26 quarterback hurries and 21 pass breakups. Playing the middle spot in the team's base 4-3 scheme and manning with Barr the two linebacker positions in the nickel defense, Kendricks became an instant starter for head coach Mike Zimmer.

As a rookie, Zimmer once said, Kendricks often ran around the field like he had "too much coffee." He has since settled in well and significantly improved his pre-snap recognition of plays.

"I just don't want to be falling off. I'm definitely going to hone in on my craft, whether that's pass rush, my drops, route recognition, things like that. Run game, my first step is always a little bit sloppy," Kendricks said. "Just always getting better. I'm just trying to take it to the next level."

The Vikings announced the deal on Monday, the first day of offseason workouts as players filed in from their winter habitats and many of them saw the gleaming new headquarters for the first time.

"This facility is ridiculous [url=]Kyler Fackrell Jersey[/url] ," Kendricks said, later adding: "I don't know where I'm going yet, but I'm going to figure it out. Everything is really nice."

Kendricks kept the extension a secret, even from his parents. His brother, Philadelphia linebacker Mychal Kendricks, was the only one not involved in the negotiations who had the inside scoop.

This has been quite the year for the family, starting with the Vikings-Eagles matchup in the NFC championship game that went Mychal's way and then the Super Bowl big brother won two weeks later.

"That's one of the things that we dreamed of growing up playing this sport, so it's been cool," Kendricks said. "I can't say it makes me any hungrier. I've been hungry. I just know what I want, and I'm going to work to get it."
