Coach Mike Macdonald said Thursday that Baker (wrist) won't be back as a full participant during practice until training camp, Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle reports.

Baker is apparently still dealing with the wrist injury he picked up in Week 18 last season. When he's healthy he profiles as a near-every down starter at linebacker, but in the meantime, rookie fourth-rounder Tyrice Knight could get some reps with the first team.

Remains sidelined by injury

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-05-22

Baker (wrist) is not participating in OTAs this week, Brady Henderson of reports.

Baker was injured in the Dolphins' Week 18 regular-season finale against the Bills and is still recovering after undergoing surgery. The 27-year-old linebacker inked a one-year deal with Seattle earlier in the offseason and will help replace the losses of Jordyn Brooks and Bobby Wagner in the middle of the defense.

Inks deal with Seattle

The Seahawks signed Baker (wrist) to a one-year, $7 million deal Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Baker was released by the Dolphins with a failed injury designation earlier this month, and he's now found a new home in Seattle. The 2018 third-round pick dealt with a wrist injury that forced him to miss four games in 2023, but he was still productive when on the field, recording 78 total tackles, including 1.5 sacks, while also intercepting two passes. Baker is expected to be an integral part of the Seahawks' linebacker corps in 2024, as the team lost both Jordyn Brooks and Bobby Wagner in free agency.

Gets let go

Baker (wrist) was released by the Dolphins on Tuesday.

Baker's exit comes as Miami works to get under the league salary cap ahead of the March 13 deadline. The Ohio State product has been with the Dolphins since being selected in the third round of the 2018 Draft, but he'll have to find a new home for the 2024 campaign. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Baker and the team tried to work out a restructured contract, but the two sides couldn't reach an agreement.

Placed on IR

Baker (wrist) was placed on injured reserve by the Dolphins on Tuesday.

Baker underwent surgery to repair the wrist that he injured in Sunday's loss to the Bills and Tuesday's move just makes his postseason absence official. The linebacker played in 13 contests during the 2023 campaign, producing 78 tackles, including 1.5 sacks, while also adding three pass deflections and two interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown.

Won't play during postseason

Baker underwent surgery to address his wrist injury and will be out for the rest of the season, Marcel Louis-Jacques of reports.

Baker picked up a wrist issue during Sunday's 21-14 loss versus the Bills, and now he'll be sidelined for the postseason. In his absence, Duke Riley projects to start at linebacker next to David Long.

Will play Sunday

Baker (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Baker was taken off the Dolphins' IR on Saturday after missing the last four games with a knee injury. He'll likely go back to his starting inside linebacker spot alongside David Long for the Dolphins' regular-season finale.

Officially off IR

Baker (knee) was activated off injured reserve Saturday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

Baker missed the Dolphins' last four games since suffering a knee injury in the team's Week 13 win over the Commanders, but he's returning to the field just in time for the playoffs. The 27-year-old linebacker recorded 69 total tackles in 12 games this season, and he'll look to get back into game shape in Week 18 against the Bills.

Designated to return from IR

Baker (knee) was designated to return from injured reserve by the Dolphins on Wednesday, Alain Poupart of reports.

Baker suffered an MCL injury in Week 13 and has been unavailable since, but Wednesday's transaction opens a 21-day window for him to return to practice and potentially be added to the active roster. With the Dolphins a lock for the postseason, the linebacker could provide them with a massive boost to their defensive, especially with Jaelan Phillips (Achilles) and Bradley Chubb (knee) done for the season. It's possible that Baker could return as soon as Sunday's matchup with the Bills, but time will tell when he's ultimately able to return to the field.
