Pete Carroll: Russell Wilson’s ankle “nothing very serious”

Nanobubbles apparently work for ankles too.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, during his weekly interview on 710 ESPN, said that quarterback Russell Wilson’s sprained ankle was “nothing very serious.”

He’s all fine there,” Carroll said, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. “A little bit of swelling but he’ll make it through.”

Carroll suggested that Wilson might miss some practice time, but indicated that he wouldn’t miss a game.

It will probably force them to add another quarterback for practice, since rookie Trevone Boykin is the only other one on their 53-man roster.

But after early reports that Wilson could miss this week’s game against the Rams, Carroll suggested that wasn’t the case.

    Well Ellen Degeneres is known for cheating and covering things up. Wilson could have a high ankle sprain and Ellen would say he was just fine. Seattle is in big trouble with that JV o-line.

    Nobody is arguing that the O-line is a problem. It has been for a very long time. Why are you here again spouting the same crap. I understand there isn’t much to look forward to as a Niner fan, but you continue to show an obsession with the Seahawks.

    Were they in trouble with that JV 0-line when they won the Superbowl? They’ve made the playoffs every year with a JV 0-line, get over it. Why are you so concerned about the Seahawks 0-line as a niner fan? Blaine Gabbert is your starting QB. You’ve got bigger things to worry about than Seattles o-line.

    We did not win a Super Bowl with that jv O-line. That team had Max Unger and Okung (Okung sucked, but not as bad as these guys). We almost got beat by the Dolphins yesterday, if you think our line is ok you are not paying attention.

    They will be fine. That O-line just needs to gel up….can only do so much in camp and pre-season with that. As they play actual games and review film, make adjustments, they will dominate at home and probably split the road games…arm chair quarterbacking after 1 game is adorable guys.

    Now that is a true fan. Congrats, squackduckhawk, you and another poster on here are the only 2 legit Seattle fans I’ve encountered.

    His legs better be 100% if they are going to put him in against the Rams next week, he is going to need them. We all know how the Rams like to target QBs. You would be doing the rest of the NFCW a favor by putting Russel in just to get crushed before, during, and after the play.

  10. kjdoyle58 says: Sep 12, 2016 2:22 PM

    Glad to hear he’s going to play…There’s nothing I like better then to see the Rams D smack him around.

  11. jayhawk777 says: Sep 12, 2016 2:39 PM

    Sit RW out for the following game vs the 9er’s, too. Talking about JV? The 9ers are definitely JV and Hawks can beat them with Boykin.

    The 9ers have had only 3 winning seasons since 2002! 3 winning seasons. Sad

    The Hawks have been to the playoff 10 years, 3 SB’s since that time, winning 1.

    The Hawks’ OL does suck & both Cable and that knuckle head Bevell need to go. He’s too vanilla & captain predictable.

  12. jayhawk777 says: Sep 12, 2016 2:42 PM

    What’s worse than the Hawk’s OL, which is bad?

    The fact that the Rams haven’t had a winning season since 2003. Now that’s even worse than the Hawks OL

    PC is a fool to run RW out there. Hawks were lucky to win on Sunday. Let the ankle heal.

  13. Mike Tomlin says: Sep 12, 2016 3:14 PM

    Removing the Probable designation is obviously causing players and coaches to speak as if players are much more healthy than they are.

    What previously could not be hidden because of the Probable tag can now be talked up as nothing, called Questionable, and all the while the player has no chance of playing that week.

    We saw it with Gronk, Wheaton, Charles and more recently with Wilson and RG3.

    Its smart, but this is a mess.

    When you are lucky again and again and again, when does it become something other than lucky?

    The OL actually settled down a bit. That was the first game ever that they started together. The starting right guard rookie will be back soon enough and the rest of them will get better and better as the year goes on. Just like last year.

    Everyone relax about the Seahawks. They were 0-1 this time last year. Slow starts are their thing and it’s probably because they have a brand new OL every single year that takes time to gel.

  15. alphabeta49er says: Sep 12, 2016 3:28 PM

    First let me get this out of the way…ahem…the 49ers suck and have huge front office issues that will probably keep them in the cellar for a generation.

    Now, as an NFC West guy—I don’t like what the Seahawks do on a week to week basis. Too much dicking around for 50 minutes of gametime with expectations of a big rally at the end. It may work in the regular season. But it catches up with them in the playoffs. 2013 is the exception. But look at their playoff losses in ’12, ’14, ’15. At some point you have to play 60 minutes and realize you can’t count on five minutes of magic in the 4th quarter. Great organization though.

    “sweep the leg” – Jeff Fisher

  17. smarterthanyouoryours says: Sep 12, 2016 3:45 PM

    Why are you all so afraid of the Hawks when they have a JV oline and Wilson’s no good, etc?

    Actually if Bevell would quit worrying about being tricky and simply run the ball more we would have won going away.

    CM avgd 4.4 YPC and that was with his one big run called back. You can win a lot if you can run the ball for 4.4 each time you attempt it.

    Line certainly looked better than early last year.

    You all should be afraid.

  18. smarterthanyouoryours says: Sep 12, 2016 3:55 PM

    No QB in NFL history has been as good through their first four years than Russ.

    There’s no denying it. Look it up.

    Sucks we have to play that dirty team in L.A.

  20. RegisHawk says: Sep 12, 2016 6:12 PM

    Rams and Dolphins are two of the best d-lines the Seahawks will face this season. If our “j-v o-line” was able to hold Suh and company off, they’ve already done well even if you can’t admit it. Rams are up next week, then it’s easy street.

  21. jaxon51 says: Sep 12, 2016 6:26 PM

    Hope Tom Cable can work some magic cause line is a concern.
    PC/JS have a formula and it’s not to use up resources in the OLine, so we just gotta trust them.
    Hate that Webb is locked into $2 million or whatever it is and pretty untimely that Ifedi holds up all training camp and then gets hurt week before opener but that’s the NFL for you.
    Wasn’t pretty but 1-0 after playing like that coupled with Arizona getting beat at home and things could be worse.

    Targeting QB’s? How about a physical team that’s get to the QB easier then most teams . Let me educate you Skippy. Here are some recent qb’s hurt against the Rams:

    Ben Roethlisbeger: MCL injury when Mark Barron reached out as he was falling to the ground (Ben himself said it wasn’t dirty).

    Carson Palmer: torn ACL as a result of trying to avoid a sack and his foot planting in the ground.

    Joe Flacco: torn ACL as a result of running into his OWN lineman trying to avoid a sack.

    The only QB that got hit that I thought was dirty was against Bridgewater last year by Lamarcus Joyner and he was fined as he should have been.
