NFC West Notes: 49ers, Cardinals, Rams, Seahawks




  • According to Gary Klein of the L.A. Times, while Rams CB Marcus Peters was cleared of a concussion following Sunday’s game, he is listed on the injury report with a facial bruise because the NFL mandates players are on the injury report if they leave the game and do not return. 


Despite losing Doug Baldwin this offseason, Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has been on fire for the team. Through four games, Wilson has completed 72.9 percent of his passes for 1,141 yards with eight touchdowns and no interceptions while also adding two touchdowns on the ground. More important than his stats, Seattle is 3-1 and aiming high with Wilson this year. 

“I think he’s off to his best start ever,” Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said via Curtis Crabtree of Pro Football Talk. “I don’t know what it looks like numbers-wise, but I think it is. I don’t think he’s ever been more accurate than he’s been, and more consistent, and in command of everything. I think he’s off to a great start. I don’t care how big the numbers are, I’m not talking about how many yards or whatever, just his play has been really, really sharp.”

Part of Wilson’s success has been due to the emergence of TE Will Dissly, who has recovered from a torn patellar tendon in his knee early in his 2018 rookie year to catch four touchdowns so far in 2019. Dissly’s six touchdowns in his first eight games tie him with three other players for the most ever since 1970. It’s a great start to a career for a player who converted from the defensive line in college and was seen as a primarily blocking tight end when Seattle surprised many by taking him in the fourth round. 

“I love the way he’s playing,” Carroll said via ESPN’s Brady Henderson. “He and Russ are hooking up at crucial times, tough catches. He’s gotten hammered a few times on tackles and bounced right back up. He’s a tremendous Seahawk. He just does everything so beautifully. It’s great to have him.”
