Doug Baldwin active, Thomas Rawls healthy scratch for Seahawks

SEATTLE -- Wide receiver Doug Baldwin is active for Sunday night's game against the Indianapolis Colts despite a groin injury that kept him from practicing all week.

Baldwin tested the injury in pregame warmups before getting the all clear from the training staff to play.

While Baldwin is playing, running back C.J. Prosise and cornerback Neiko Thorpe are out for Seattle. Running back Thomas Rawls is also a healthy scratch.

Prosise was listed as doubtful to an ankle injury sustained last week against the Tennessee Titans. He was injured when linebacker Avery Williamson landed on his right ankle on a run late in the third quarter.

Thorpe is out due to an ankle injury as well. He was injured two weeks ago against the San Francisco 49ers when linebacker Michael Wilhoite tumbled into his ankle on a kick return. He did not practice all week and was listed as questionable to play. However, head coach Pete Carroll had seemed pessimistic about his chances on Friday.

Like Eddie Lacy in Week 2, Rawls is a healthy inactive call for Seattle. He played just one snap last week against the Tennessee Titans. It leaves the running back duties to Chris Carson, Lacy and J.D. McKissic, who is active for the first time this season.

With Oday Aboushi getting a second straight start at right guard, Mark Glowinski is inactive again as well. Ethan Pocic and Matt Tobin will handle the reserve linemen duties.

Also inactive for Seattle are safety Tedric Thompson, guard Jordan Roos and tackle Isaiah Battle.

Linebacker Justin March-Lillard is active for Seattle after being claimed off waivers from Miami on Wednesday.

For the Colts, six players had already been ruled out prior to Sunday: quarterback Andrew Luck (right shoulder), running back Marlon Mack (shoulder), cornerback Quincy Wilson (knee), linebacker Anthony Walker (hamstring), center Ryan Kelly (foot) and wide receiver Chester Rogers (hamstring).

Cornerback Chris Milton (hamstring) is also inactive. He was listed as questionable on Friday.
