Russell Wilson Says ‘No Doubt’ He’ll Play Against Jets
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — There is zero doubt in Russell Wilson's mind that he'll be able to play Sunday against the New York Jets.
Wilson participated fully in practice with the Seattle Seahawks for a second consecutive day Thursday after suffering a sprained MCL in last Sunday's 37-18 win over the San Francisco 49ers.
"It was kind of a freak thing, obviously. A scary moment, but tons of rehab and it's been feeling great, feeling strong, so I'll be ready to go," Wilson said.
Wilson hasn't wavered in his optimism. He was just as certain after the 49ers victory that he would be able to play this week. It's led head coach Pete Carroll to be equally confident in Wilson's chances to play.
"He's pretty determined to get this done," Carroll said. "He's upbeat and feeling good and he's worked really, really hard to do everything to be right and he's going to go."
Wilson said he was able to do everything in practice Wednesday. After suffering a high-ankle sprain in Seattle's Week 1 victory over Miami, Wilson was also able to take part in every part of practice with the team the following week. Despite the argument that Wilson would be better served by getting more rest to recover, Wilson insists on doing as much work as he can.
