Although Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin is expected to play Week 1, don't expect him to be at full strength all year.

Baldwin revealed Tuesday that his knee hasn't fully healed and fears the injury could linger entering his eighth season.

"I’m probably 80-85 percent right now,” Baldwin said via The News Tribune. "Truth of the matter is, I won't be 100 percent. It’s something I’ve got to deal with the rest of the season."

Baldwin has long served as the anchor of the Seahawks' wide receiver corps. He recorded 75 receptions for 991 yards and eight touchdowns in 16 games during the 2017 season, earning his second consecutive Pro Bowl selection.

The 29-year-old participated in practice Monday and has resumed running again. In the event Baldwin misses any time, it would be a significant loss for the Seahawks' offense. Tyler Lockett and Brandon Marshall would be poised to see more snaps.
