Ok, football fans you can add the Seattle Seahawks’ star quarterback to the list of injured players that occurred this past weekend.
Russell Wilson suffered a “gruesome” leg bent during a third-quarter sack by the 49ers linebacker Eli Harold.
After his injury, rookie Trevone Boykin was put in as a replacement where the Seahawks won in a 37-18 win.
Last night, the Seahawks’ coach Pete Carroll told reporters that Russell Wilson, sprained his knee, “A little bit,” but come Monday, he confirmed it was much more.
And after the game, Russell Wilson said, “I don’t think it’s severe as it looked. I have good mobility… You can always feel better when you win.”
And this morning, Coach Carroll said that Wilson’s MRI reports showed that he was suffering from an MCL sprain.
“He’s in good spirits, just like you would think,” Carroll said. “He has no intention of thinking anything other than that he’s playing.”
Their next game is next Sunday against the NY Jets and the question for the Seahawks is, will Wilson be able to play?
Coach Carroll said, “Probably the biggest issue is he’s still rehabbing his ankle too. But his ankle looked terrific today. He looked almost perfect in pregame. So that’s a great recovery there.”
