If you've been waiting for Russ to cook, then your time might have come. Here's what Peter King heard from an unnamed source: "Coach [Nathaniel Hackett] and Russell [Wilson] are not coach-player. They're partners." And Wilson seems to agree. "It's the ownership of the players owning our own offense," the QB said. "This has to be a player-ran kind of team. Coach Hackett gives us the keys to do that." Take this as confirmation of what we all hoped Wilson would be getting from the move out of Seattle.
Broncos QB Russell Wilson has been removed from the injury report for Thursday night's game against the Colts. He said earlier in the week that his right-shoulder issue wouldn't inhibit his availability, and it appears Wilson will be a full go.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Broncos QB Russell Wilson is "dealing with a little bit of tendonitis in his throwing shoulder." Wilson has been limited in practice so far this week, ahead of Thursday night's game vs. the Colts. "Doesn't seem like this is a major issue," Rapoport adds. "I'd characterize it as just something to watch."
Broncos QB Russell Wilson showed some signs of life in Sunday's loss to Vegas, tossing 2 TDs and completing 17-of-25 passes for 237 yards. Obviously, the pass volume (and yardage) isn’t ideal. But the boosted efficiency is nice, and it’s encouraging to see him hitting top targets Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy for scores. Wilson was Pro Football Focus’ 23rd graded QB over the first 3 weeks but jumped up to 4th in Week 4. The loss of Javonte Williams (torn ACL) could push this unit more towards the pass going forward — especially if their run defense doesn’t improve. Wilson belongs in the QB1 conversation for a Thursday night home game vs. Indianapolis.
Broncos QB Russell Wilson completed just 14 of his 31 pass attempts for 219 yards in Sunday's win over the Texans. He threw a TD to TE Eric Saubert, but also an INT. Denver has scored just 33 points through 2 games, despite matchups with defenses that aren't likely to emerge as tough.
The Broncos and QB Russell Wilson agreed to a 5-year, $245 million contract extension with $165 million guaranteed, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Wilson is now the league's 2nd-highest-paid QB, behind only Aaron Rodgers. More interestingly, he's now signed for the next 7 seasons. Wilson will have just turned 40 when his current contract is up. We'll see if he's able to play through the life of it.
