Seahawks QB Russell Wilson to Practice Despite Knee Injury
RENTON (AP) — Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will practice Wednesday and all indications are he will be able to play Sunday against the New York Jets.
Coach Pete Carroll said he needs to see how Wilson recovers from practice but as of now he's expecting his quarterback to be able to play. Wilson sprained the MCL in his left knee while being pulled down awkwardly by San Francisco's Eli Harold in the third quarter of Seattle's 37-18 win Sunday.
Carroll said Wilson is "pretty determined" to play against the Jets, even with Seattle having its bye in Week 5 and the chance of getting the quarterback two weeks of rest.
This is Wilson's second significant injury of the season. He sprained his ankle in the opener against Miami.
