Seahawks QB Russell Wilson followed a strict diet regimen this offseason. The result: he's down from 225 pounds to 214 and from 16% body fat to 10%. Wilson was already a good bet to bounce back from a disappointing 2016 season that saw him play through ankle and knee injuries. Cutting some weight should only help that cause. A beat-up Wilson tallied a career-low 259 rushing yards last year after averaging 607.5 over his first 4 seasons.
Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is not on the final injury report. He’ll start Sunday’s game against the Jets but won’t be at 100% after spraining his knee last week. That lowers the rushing ceiling, but there’s plenty of passing upside against the Jets’ 24th-ranked QB defense.
The Seahawks believe QB Russell Wilson suffered a sprained MCL in Sunday's win over the 49ers, according to insider Albert Breer. Wilson is undergoing an MRI tonight to confirm. HC Pete Carroll said afterward that he expects his QB to be able to play next weekend, although we wouldn't expect to hear anything else from him. We'll look for an update on Wilson's injury and track his status throughout the week.
Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle) was removed from the team's final injury report. He put in a full week of practice and is ready for Sunday's game against the Rams. If he's limited by that ankle, it won't be significantly. Wilson is safe to get into fantasy lineups.
Seahawks QB Russell Wilson's sprained ankle is "significant," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, and has put his Week 2 availability "into question." Wilson played through the injury in Sunday's narrow win over the Dolphins, but these ankle sprains tend to feel worse the next day. He figures to be limited or held out of practice altogether early this week. His participation on Thursday and Friday will be key. Rookie Trevone Boykin is Seattle's #2 QB but wouldn't be a recommended fantasy play if Wilson can't go against the Rams.
