Russell Wilson Expected To Play In Week 2 Despite Ankle Injury, Could Add A QB


ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is expected to play in their Week 2 game, despite sustaining an ankle injury during Sunday’s win over the Dolphins.

According to Mortensen, it’s likely that the Seahawks will bring in another quarterback. Mortensen suggests re-signing Jake Heap to their practice squad at some point this week.


Seahawks HC Pete Carroll mentioned in an interview with ESPN 710 in Seattle that Russell Wilson‘s sprained ankle is “nothing very serious,” per Bob Condotta.

Carroll added that “he’ll make it through,’‘ which appears to be an indication that he expects Wilson to be available for Week 2’s game.

Although, Carroll did hint Wilson could be limited in practice this week, per Condotta.

According to Carroll, Wilson underwent X-rays on his ankle and added: “[H]e’s all fine there. … a little bit of swelling but he’ll make it through,” per Condotta.


Seahawks QB Russell Wilson indicated via his Twitter account that he expects to play in Week 2, despite his ankle injury.


Ian Rapoport reports Seahawks QB Russell Wilson suffered a “significant” ankle injury and his availability for Week 2 is now in question.

  • Rapoport expects Seattle to pick up another quarterback, likely a veteran option, at some point in the near future.
  • Jason La Canfora reports that the Seahawks are still unsure of the extent of Wilson’s ankle injury. Wilson is scheduled to undergo a battery of tests on Monday.

Wilson was, unfortunately, stepped on by Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh and had a lot of trouble putting any pressure on his ankle on the following play. However, Seahawks’ trainers taped up his ankle and he somehow managed to play the entire game.

Wilson, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2012. He’s currently in the second year of his five-year, $89.142 million contract that includes $60 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $12.34 million for the 2016 season.

In 2015, Wilson appeared in all 16 games for the Seahawks and threw for 4,024 yards while completing 68.1 percent of his passes to go along with 343 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He also contributed 553 yards rushing and a touchdown on the ground.

We’ll have more regarding Wilson’s injury as the news is available.
