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. Sep 26 - 6:14 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed Russell Wilson has an MCL sprain.

Carroll said Wilson "feels great" and is recovering well, but he will wear a brace if he plays this week. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday night Wilson expected to play this week against the Jets, and the confirmation of a sprain suggests that is still the plan. Still, Wilson's mobility was hindered even before this injury, and he has not proven to be a quality fantasy asset while hurt. He will be difficult to trust even in a good matchup.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Russell Wilson (knee, ankle) is "expecting to play" Week 4 against the Jets.

Wilson is really banged up -- battling a high-ankle sprain in his right leg and a reported sprained MCL in his left -- but early word is he's going to give it a go next Sunday. It's obviously way early to assume these things, and we should know more after his MRI on Monday. Consider him day to day for now.

MMQB's Albert Breer reports the Seahawks believe Russell Wilson has a sprained MCL in his left knee.

It's perhaps more notable that both coach Pete Carroll and Wilson himself expressed confidence after Sunday's win that Wilson will be able to play in Week 4 against the Jets. NBC's Mike Florio reported Wilson will undergo an MRI on Sunday night to determine the full extent of the damage. Wilson insisted he "doesn't think the knee injury is as serious as it looked." Wilson is also dealing with a high ankle sprain on his right leg.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed after Sunday's win that Russell Wilson has a sprained knee.

The left leg injury originally appeared to be to Wilson's ankle, but it turned out to be to Wilson's knee, on which a brace was placed by trainers on the sideline. The fact that Wilson kept his helmet on and was lobbying to reenter on Sunday suggests he fully intends to play in Week 4 against the Jets. "Most likely he's going to be fine," coach Pete Carroll conceded. "Because that's just how he operates." On the off chance Wilson can't get clearance, UDFA Trevone Boykin would make the start.

Russell Wilson exited Sunday's Week 3 game against the 49ers with a left ankle or knee injury.

Wilson came into the game battling a high ankle sprain to his right leg. On a third-quarter play, Wilson appeared to injure his left knee and/or ankle and was fitted for a brace by trainers on the sideline. Trevone Boykin has entered. We did notice Wilson standing on the sideline with his helmet still on, but it would be silly for the Seahawks to let him back in up 27-3. FOX's Pam Oliver later reported Wilson's day is "done."
Sep 25 - 6:14 PM

Russell Wilson (ankle) said he's "definitely feeling better" this week.

Wilson admitted last week's game against the Rams was "a battle." He's been playing through a high-ankle sprain, which is no small task. Wilson has practiced fully this week and has a nice matchup against the lowly Niners in Week 3. He should be in for a bounce-back game.

Russell Wilson (ankle) is practicing fully this week.

Coach Pete Carroll said Wilson is ahead of where he was at this point last week. Wilson has been playing through a high-ankle sprain. He has a plus matchup against the Niners in Week 3.
Sep 21 - 8:05 PM

Russell Wilson said he hopes his injured ankle "will feel amazing" when he plays the 49ers this Sunday.

"I feel pretty strong right now already," Wilson said. "Just keep icing it, keep praying and keep working." Reportedly dealing with a high-ankle sprain, Wilson was not his normal self in the Week 2 loss to the Rams. With the offensive line a mess, the entire offense will struggle as long as Wilson is compromised. Luckily, playing San Francisco at home is a great time to get healthy.

Russell Wilson completed 22-of-35 passes for 254 yards and no touchdowns or interceptions in the Seahawks' 9-3, Week 2 loss to the Rams.

He rushed for 14 yards on five attempts, but Wilson was clearly limited by his ankle injury. Wilson had his ankles heavily taped, and FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports Wilson is dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Wilson delivered a couple good deep balls to Tyler Lockett, picking up 35 and 53 yards on them, but that was about it. The Rams' front four was living in the Seahawks' backfield most of the afternoon, sacking Wilson two times and hitting him a number of times. Wilson will look to get his season on the right track next week at home against the 49ers.
Sep 18 - 7:23 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports "sources originally believed" Russell Wilson would miss multiple games with his high ankle sprain.

According to RapSheet, "diligent rehab" allowed Wilson to be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game in Los Angeles. RapSheet reports Wilson's foot was in a boot and in ice last Sunday night, he was jogging by Tuesday, and ultimately underwent "round-clock rehab" in order to play Sunday. It sounds like Wilson indeed had a legitimate injury that could compromise some of his mobility.
Sep 18 - 12:27 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Russell Wilson (ankle) will play against the Rams in Week 2.

Wilson suffered a high-ankle sprain against the Dolphins last Sunday but was a full participant at practice this week. Schefter said Wilson's "movement could be hindered," a sentiment shared by others including ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia. That limits his potential for rushing yards, though Schefter heard from a source that Wilson is "doing great." He can be safely employed as a QB1 against a Rams squad coming off a dismal effort in San Francisco.
Sep 18 - 8:21 AM

ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia believes Russell Wilson (ankle) will see fewer designed runs and stay in the pocket more Week 2 against the Rams.

Wilson was a full participant all week in practice and was not even listed on the final injury report, but Kapadia still believes the Seahawks will tweak the offense to account for his ankle injury. Kapadia expects Seattle to use fewer read-options and bootlegs with Wilson more hesitant to scramble. All of that could be true entering the game, but the Rams were just shredded on the ground by Blaine Gabbert. Wilson's floor is not as high this week, but his ceiling is among the best in the league. He is still a locked-in QB1 and a good GPP play with people worried about the ankle.

Russell Wilson (ankle) says he's "ready to roll" for Sunday.

In case you needed any more confirmation Wilson will be out there. Facing a Rams defense that made Blaine Gabbert look like a dual-threat star on Monday, Wilson is a locked-in QB1 with unlimited upside.
Sep 15 - 3:30 PM

Russell Wilson (ankle) is practicing in full this week.

Wilson's mobility may be somewhat compromised at Los Angeles, but he'll be in the starting lineup without question. He's a mid-range to low-end QB1 play.
