11:37am: It sounds like Seahawks fans can breathe easy. Coach Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN that Wilson’s injury isn’t “very serious” and added that “he’ll make it through,” indicating that he’ll suit up for Week 2 (Twitter links via Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times). Carroll added that the QB’s X-rays came back negative (link).
8:02am: After the Seahawks’ 12-10 victory over the Dolphins, quarterback Russell Wilson told reporters that he’ll be “ready to roll” next week against the Rams despite suffering an ankle sprain. Apparently, that’s not quite the case. Wilson’s sprain is “significant” and his Week 2 availability is in question, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). Whether or not Russell Wilson can go against Los Angeles on Sunday, the Seahawks are expected to pick up another veteran QB (Twitter link).
Wilson, 28 in November, has never missed a regular season game since entering the league in 2012. The Wisconsin product earned his third Pro Bowl selection in 2015 has he completed 68.1% of his passes and threw for 34 touchdowns against eight interceptions.
