Russell Wilson Shakes Off Concussion Talk
RENTON (AP) --€” Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson says he did not suffer a concussion in the NFC championship game against Green Bay, a day after comments in an article in Rolling Stone indicated Wilson may have suffered a head injury.
Wilson says on Thursday that his comments were "I guess perceived wrong," and he did not have a head injury. Wilson took a big hit in the first half from Green Bay's Clay Matthews but remained in the game and led Seattle's late comeback for a 28-22 overtime win over the Packers.
In the Rolling Stone article, Wilson raves about a product called Reliant Recovery Water of which Wilson is an investor. "I banged my head during the Packers game in the playoffs, and the next day I was fine. It was the water," Wilson was quoted as saying in the article.
