    RENTON, Wash. - After being held out of Monday Night Football because of a hip issue, Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers.

    “Doug did really well. He practiced, made it through it today,” said Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll. “He did fine. It looks like he’s playing.”

    "When you have one of the best receivers in the game in Doug Baldwin and you can't cover him in the slot,” Russell Wilson, a Seahawks quarterback, said. “You want him to be out there as much as you can and I know he's working his tail off every day. There's nobody who works harder than he does."

    Right guard D.J. Fluker, who is still dealing with a hamstring strain, is doubtful for the game.  The Seahawks first-round draft pick, Rashaad Penny, is out for their final road game of the regular season with a sore knee. 

    "He had MRIs on it and all that and there's nothing that needs to be done right now as far as surgery or anything like that,” said Carroll.  

    Jarran Reed is questionable and so is strong safety Bradley McDougald, who has been dealing with a knee issue.

    But Carroll is expecting for Reed and McDougald to go on Sunday. 

    Maurice Alexander and K.J. Wright have been ruled out for the game in Santa Clara, California.

    As Wright tries to get back on the field, The United Way presented the Pro Bowl linebacker with a $50,000 check on Friday to donate to a charity of his choosing as Seattle’s nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award.
