Pete Carroll gives Seahawks fans good news on Russell Wilson's injury

BY foxsports • September 28, 2016

Russell Wilson has never missed a game in his NFL career and isn't planning on missing one now.

Wilson has suffered two injuries in the first three weeks of the season, including an MCL sprain in his left knee last week against San Francisco. However, Wilson has said he'll be ready to go Sunday, and coach Pete Carroll told reporters Wednesday that Wilson was planning to practice and on pace to play against the Jets.

Some observers are calling for Carroll to rein in his QB and rest him for his own good, considering the Seahawks have a bye week following Sunday's game.

But Carroll said he's protecting his QB the same way he would his own kids.

And Wilson indicates he's full steam ahead. "I was fortunate. I don't think it was as severe as it looked, thank God. I think I'll be all right."

Wilson has been hampered by the injuries, completing 63.3 percent of his passes for 755 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, but the Seahawks have won two of their first three, with Wilson leading a last-minute, game-winning touchdown drive in Week 1.
