Russell Wilson (knee, pectoral) remained limited on Thursday.
Wilson has guaranteed he'll suit up against the Saints, but he's looking seriously limited. He could already barely move before the pec injury. A rethink might be required of Wilson's top-five Week 8 status. Oct 27 - 7:14 PM

Russell Wilson (knee, pectoral) said he'll play against the Saints.

It's been one injury after another for Wilson this season, but he's yet to miss a game. Speaking Thursday, Wilson said he'd suit up, but didn't go over the top downplaying his injuries like he did earlier this season. He also revealed his knee injury was supposed to sideline him for four weeks. Wilson could be quite limited, even by his 2016 standards, in New Orleans. Daily Slant: If you aren't comfortable rolling Wilson out in DFS given his injury concerns, Christine Michael is a fine way to expose yourself to a high-scoring offense. New Orleans has allowed at least 27 points in eight straight home games, and with Seattle coming in as favorites (the line opened at 3.5), we could certainly see a 25 touch day for Michael in a dream spot. NO has allowed 1.67 rushing TDs per game to RBs in addition to over 100 yards per game on the ground, so there isn’t much incentive to playing the fade on Michael.

Russell Wilson (knee, pec) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Seattle is managing Wilson's reps after Sunday night's overtime tie with Arizona. Wilson hasn't look close to fully healthy this year, but isn't in danger of missing Week 8. He'll have a chance to get on track with a matchup against the Saints.
Oct 26 - 7:59 PM

Russell Wilson (knee, ankle) is on pace for 88 rushing yards.

Wilson rushed once for negative two yards Sunday night against the Cardinals, and he has not rushed for more than seven yards in any game since Week 2. Wilson has never had fewer than 489 rushing yards in a season. Coach Pete Carroll said after the game Wilson's lack of mobility is "a factor" in the offense's struggles, and it does not seem to be improving even as Wilson practices in full every week. The only good news is a trip to New Orleans can be a quick cure for a struggling offense.
Oct 24 - 9:45 AM

Russell Wilson completed 24-of-37 passes for 225 yards in Sunday night's tie with the Cardinals.

It's the second straight game Wilson's been held without a touchdown. The Cardinals defense completely shut down Seattle, holding them to 11 first downs. Wilson got all his yards deep into overtime and put the Seahawks in position to win, but Steven Hauschka missed a chip shot field goal. Wilson's injuries and lack of a running game are a concern to his ROS outlook, but he's a good bet to bounce back against the Saints in Week 8.
Oct 24 - 12:30 AM

Russell Wilson (ankle, knee) is practicing fully for Week 7.

Wilson has looked somewhat reluctant to tuck and run compared to previous seasons, which is obviously a product of his nagging ankle and knee issues. That's been a big hit to his fantasy value, though Wilson has still done enough to warrant weekly QB1 consideration. He'll draw the Cardinals on Sunday night.
Oct 19 - 7:43 PM

Russell Wilson completed 25-of-37 passes for 270 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Seahawks' 26-24, Week 6 win over the Falcons.

He added six carries for seven yards. Wilson's scoreless day was a product of receivers getting tackled near the goal line, setting up rushing scores. Coming off the Seahawks' bye, Wilson still didn't appear completely over his knee and ankle injuries, passing up many attempts to run. He did his job as a distributor, playing pitch and catch with Jimmy Graham and converting multiple lobs. Wilson will only continue to get healthier. The Seahawks travel to Arizona in Week 7.
Oct 16 - 7:43 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Russell Wilson (knee, ankle) "looks great."

Carroll added Wilson's return to full health is a "great sign" for the running game. "You know, he’s averaging one yard a carry right now. That’s not the guy we know," Carroll said. "So, as he comes back to full speed and can be the factor, it affects everything." The Falcons did a good job against the Broncos last week, but they are facing a different animal in Seattle this Sunday. Wilson is an elite QB1 play.
Oct 13 - 12:32 PM

Russell Wilson completed 23-of-32 passes for 309 yards and three touchdowns in the Seahawks' 27-17, Week 4 win over the Jets.

Not bad a for a guy playing on a sprained ankle and sprained MCL. Wilson made great throw after great throw, and it all started with an eight-yard touchdown strike over the middle to newcomer C.J. Spiller. Wilson also perfectly floated an over-the-shoulder ball right into Jimmy Graham's bread basket and hooked up with his tight end six times total for 113 yards. Wilson's second score went to UDFA "Tanner McEvoy" on a busted coverage from 42 yards away. Calvin Pryor fell down in coverage. The final touchdown pass was a six-yard dump-off to Christine Michael. Wilson now gets the Week 5 bye to heal up before hosting the Falcons in Week 6.
Oct 2 - 4:25 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Russell Wilson will play Sunday wearing a custom knee brace.

Wilson suffered an MCL sprain against the 49ers last Sunday, but he practiced in full all week and has said he is "good to go." The brace is similar to ones worn by players coming off ACL injuries and could limit his already limited mobility. Even in what looks like a good matchup against the Jets, Wilson is a low-end QB1 at best. New York should be able to get plenty of pressure.
Oct 2 - 8:39 AM

Russell Wilson (knee, ankle) is no longer on the Seahawks' injury report.

Wilson was a full participant at practice this week despite spraining his MCL in Sunday's win over the Niners. He won't be 100 percent but Wilson's matchup against the Jets is appealing enough to warrant QB1 consideration for Week 4.
Sep 30 - 4:23 PM

Russell Wilson (knee, ankle) has "no doubt" he'll start Sunday's game against the Jets.

Wilson got in another "full" practice Thursday. "I'll be ready to go," Wilson said. It's just the latest declaration he'll be starting despite getting his knee twisted up in extremely awkward fashion last Sunday. Wilson has a juicy matchup with a Jets pass defense allowing a league-worst 9.7 yards per attempt, but still gets docked a few spots in the ranking for his ill health. The Seahawks are on bye in Week 5.
Sep 29 - 3:36 PM

Russell Wilson (knee) is practicing in full for Week 4.

This was expected, but confirms that Wilson will play this week. Wilson is dealing with a sprained MCL and will wear a knee brace against the Jets. He's more of a low-end QB1 at less than 100 percent.

Coach Pete Carroll said he "would be surprised" if Russell Wilson (knee) doesn't play Week 4 against the Jets.

Wilson is "pretty determined" to play through the sprained MCL and has been waking up in the middle of the night for treatment this week. A live-in specialist has been staying at his home. He'll be a low-end QB1 at less than 100 percent, on the road for a 1 PM ET start, and against a tough front four. Daily Slant: The Jets are very stout against the run - they allowed the 3rd fewest FPPG to RBs last year and have allowed the third-fewest YPG to opposing backfields this year - yet aren't quite as strong against the pass. Wilson would be an elite GPP play if he was fully healthy, and while most of the field won't want to take the risk, Wilson is still a fine GPP target in large-field tournaments. This is a situation to avoid in cash games.
Sep 28 - 3:48 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said Russell Wilson (knee) is doing "remarkably well," and he expects him to practice Wednesday and play Week 4 against the Jets.

"We feel like he's gonna be fine," Carroll said. Carroll has always seen things better than they may truly be, but all indications are Wilson will be able to go next Sunday. If he's seriously dealing with a sprained MCL, expect the Seahawks to take it easy on Wilson during the practice week. Wilson will be a borderline QB1/2 at less than 100 percent against the Jets' feared front four.
