At his Thursday press conference, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson expressed confidence that his trio of injuries would not prevent him from playing this Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. When asked how concerned he was about the pectoral injury that made him limited in practice for the first time in his career on Wednesday, Wilson said he was “Not concerned.”
Wilson added that when he sprained his MCL it was a “relatively serious” knee injury and that doctors told him injuries like that one could keep a player out for “four weeks, maybe longer.” As far as his limited running ability this season when you combine the knee injury with the high ankle sprain he suffered in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers: “I’d be lying if I told you that my mobility was 100-percent.”
He has uncharacteristically rushed for 33 yards on 22 carries this season, just 5.5 yards per game. In his career, Wilson averages 5.7 yards per carry.
