The Facts: GM John Schneider confirmed that Baldwin had a recent sports hernia surgery, as had been reported would occur. That’s the third surgery Baldwin has been known to have this offseason, others on his knee and his shoulder. Schneider said it’s too soon to put an ETA on when Baldwin will be healthy. “That’s a process we are still working through,’’ he said. “He is recovering from that right now and we will see where it goes. ... He’s a tough guy, though. If anybody can recover from surgeries like this, it’s Doug.’’
Diehards Line:Baldwin was scheduled to see Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia in early April to have the procedure. Baldwin clearly wasn’t himself last year, with just 50 catches for 618 yards and five touchdowns in 13 games. The original plan was for Baldwin to be ready by training camp, at least after the first two procedures. We'll continue watching to see how that changes based on this latest news.
