Report: Ankle injury could keep Russell Wilson out of Week 2

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson suffered an ankle injury on Sunday against the Dolphins, but he stayed in the game and said afterward that he would be fine. But he might not be fine in six days.

Wilson’s injury is serious enough that he could miss the Seahawks’ Week Two game against the Rams, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

This is Wilson’s fifth NFL season and so far he has never missed a game. After toughing it out through the end of Sunday’s game against the Dolphins, Wilson’s ankle injury would presumably have to be fairly serious for him to consider sitting out at Los Angeles.

If Wilson can’t go, undrafted rookie Trevone Boykin would get the start. The Seahawks don’t have any other quarterbacks on the roster, so if there’s any chance that Wilson will miss this week, Seattle will surely add another quarterback.

    Tbh, the Rams D line always go Hulk Smash on Wilson. Kinda wouldn’t mind him sitting out this week!

    Until teams and the NFL take all injuries serious, player safety is nothing more than lip service. Players will not want to come out, team doctors & HC’s need to be held accountable.

    This is what happens when you ignore the OL. Your QB gets killed and you can’t run the ball.

    Remember Seahawk fans when we (teams that have been good for years) told you that it gets harder when your young guys get paid? That you can’t keep everyone and that you have to draft even better than before – and do so in the last 10 picks of each round?

    Yep. You’re seeing that now. Your OL SUCKS.

    It might just be pneumonia. Some nanobubble hydration will help.

    “zerotrophiessince1961 says:

    Yep. You’re seeing that now. Your OL SUCKS.”

    That’s the thing, though. The OL has always sucked – for the entire time Pete Carroll & John Schneider have been in charge. It’s really no big secret.

    Two SB appearances with two crappy O lines. Run blocking a priority, on a run-first team. A mobile QB was a happy discovery along the way which kept the plan firmly in place.

    As you’ve stated – can’t pay everyone. The conscious decision was to go young and cheap on the OL as *inevitably* contracts mount up elsewhere.

    2012’s don’t know who the Seahawks QB was before Wilson.
    🙂

    Russell Wilson was getting slaughtered even on hand-offs yesterday. That offensive line is leakier than a mesh pipe. Even with his amazing escape abilities, If he makes it 16 games behind Center this year, I’ll be shocked!

  9. chesswhileyouplaycheckers says: Sep 12, 2016 9:07 AM

    Following the lead of such notable 12’s as osiris, skawh and jmethane, to name a few, on NE articles Patriots nation would be justified in twisting the knife here but the truth is we are made of better stuff and most of us are fans not fanboys. Russell Wilson is one of the most exciting young players in the game today and a joy to watch play. Hope he heals fast, good competition makes the game worthwhile.

    Love all of the couch coach expert opinions. Worry about your team. The Hawks are fine and already a game up on AZ.

    Go HAWKS

    I’m not even gonna come in here and troll. I’ll just tell you what I tried telling every Seahawks “fan” since the beginning of the summer: You need an o-line. All the “fans” were saying: “Russ will be just fine. Rawls is the best RB. Everyone’s just a hater.” No, everyone who’s been a fan and watches football knows that without an o-line you’re garbage. They wanted to beef up the defense more, so they paid all the defense without doing anything with the o-line. Russ is very good, but yesterday was a sign of things to come. You thought the Dolphins D was good? The Rams front 4 will destroy that o-line next week. The Seahawks are a good team, but without the o-line, you just made the NFC West wide open.

    That’s not true! They have been fans since 1976. It’s in their username….even if they were born in the 90’s.

    Wilson is one tough kid, fighting threw that injury to lead the winning drive on one leg smh…..kid deserves top 5 status, I would much rather have him than that fraud in Arizona…..

  14. kamthechancellor says: Sep 12, 2016 9:48 AM

    Bringing in Tavaris with Boykin backing up. Rest that ankle Russ.

  15. MichaelEdits says: Sep 12, 2016 9:53 AM

    Fortunately, it’s only the Rams.

    Suh strikes again.
    Although in all honesty, it appears to have been incidental. But with Suh you never know.

    Century link has sold out 114 straight games … So the math … Fan base is older than 2012 LyinRoger.

    Week 2 starting QB, Marshawn Lynch.

    I’m wondering out loud this morning…..’hey Cardinal fans….did that game count last night?? What place are you in this morning??’

  20. sporting4231 says: Sep 12, 2016 10:02 AM

    I haven’t been able to get excited about this season and had a feeling it would be the season Wilson gets injured. I’m so ticked that Carroll and Schneider put all this money into the offense and build it on a crappy O-line foundation year after year when OL affects every play. I don’t see where Cable is that great an OL coach – his lines are only good on the run, and then only when they have an exceptional runner like Lynch or Rawls – seems to me its the runners who are exceptional. When your OL players leave for better OL’s and careers it should tell you something. Seattle limps through this season, may not see the play offs.

    “Twisting the knife?” We won, and our “maimed” QB was seen out at a steakhouse laughing it up with his gorgeous (and much younger than Gisselle) wife. And you’ll soon find out that we beat a better team than the Patriots did last night.

    Oh, and Rappaport is also the guy who said Ifedi had a high ankle sprain, out 4-6 weeks, when in fact he is day to day.

  23. s dirge says: Sep 12, 2016 10:09 AM

    Speculation. No facts. Not post worthy.

  24. schmitty2 says: Sep 12, 2016 10:20 AM

    The Rams have averaged close to 5 sacks a game in 8 games against Wilson and by Russell’s own admission has said the Rams are the most physical team he has faced. If he is anything less then 100% he might want to consider sitting this one out. If you thought Miami was bringing the heat you have seen nothing yet.

  25. thebirdofprey says: Sep 12, 2016 10:24 AM

    That 2012s joke is getting old since its now 2016-2017. Kinda loses its effect, no??

    Seattle didn’t ignore the offensive line, that drafted Germain Ifedi who looks like a stud but got hurt 3 days before the game. Britt looks to have found his home at C and Glowinskli was drafted to be in the spot he is now.

    I fully admit they this team needs an upgrade at LT because Sowell has shown his full career and yesterday he is not starter material.

    NOTE TO HAWK FAN HARASSERS:The last two teams in the Super Bowl were not NFL charter members. The Panthers are considered an expansion team and the Broncos were taken in, with the AFL/NFL merger.

    The point of the age of Hawks fans, is really kinda silly. Even the mighty Patriots are AFL converts, that adds new fans each year. Kinda dumb to think there is a litmus test of time to be a legitimate fan.

    This from a Panthers fan, a team even newer than the Seahawks.

  27. jda129 says: Sep 12, 2016 10:29 AM

    niners816 – yes. We know nothing about our team pre-Wilson, yet I watched something as obscure as J,T. O’Sullivan from my wife’s alma mater UC Davis taking snaps for San Francisco. This is where the Niners fans that jumped on during the Harbaugh years go J.T. who?

  28. oreo51 says: Sep 12, 2016 11:03 AM

    It is 8AM in Seattle. How could Ian Rapoport possibly know how Russell Wilson is feeling this morning? Is he sharing a bed with him?

    Yeah just the team that swept the Seahawks last year, beat the Seahawks 3 out of 4, and just the team that Wilson takes the most sacks/hits against.

  32. minson15 says: Sep 12, 2016 11:37 AM

    Wilson is playing the game whether he’s going to be hurt or not. Wilson is the ultimate competitor and he is going to be on the field. Are the rams going to destroy our O line next week….FOR SURE. They always do even when we went to the Superbowls in those two years. The Rams are good at every position on the field besides QB and Head Coach. The most two important positions filled by a team. So that is why their records aren’t great. Seahawks will probably lose this game but that is ok cause were probably not going to win them all but we will win the division for sure!

    No, actually it’s an honest well thought out comment. Feeding a one leg scrambling QB to the beast that is the Rams front D line….could lead to a broken out 12 weeks ankle.

  34. number1hawkfan says: Sep 12, 2016 11:55 AM

    Was gonna get on here and talk about how much Wilson rules. Mainly, because he didn’t Big Ben this injury. He’s not a soccer player like most QB’s. He didn’t even want to grab at it when it first happened. I think he reached for it twice and got up limped a couple times and did his best to look normal. Dudes a baller and so glad he’s our QB. The rest of you can take your comments and………… The Hawks are going to do what they’ve done every year since Pete and Russ got together. They’re gonna start slow and be in the mix for a championship in January. They won. Until they can’t win anymore I’m good. See you in the playoffs. You better hope we don’t have home field. We don’t need it. If we win our division that might be enough. But either way if that happens you’ll be listening to Hawks player again on media day. Better think of some new questions because they’ve been there twice in the last 2 years.

    O’Sullivan started in 2008. So if you think Niners fans weren’t around before 2008 goofier than I thought. I’ll even give you some a little football knowledge since you seem to lack a lot of it. 1976, the Seattle Seahawks qb was Jim Zorn. You’re welcome.

    No worries, Russell will just pray away his injuries. After all, God is on his side.

  40. salscobrakai says: Sep 12, 2016 1:23 PM

    Not a Seahawks fan and not looking to troll but I’d sit Russell just so he doesn’t have to run for his life on a bum ankle vs. that Ram’s D. Can you imagine Aaron Donald getting after him with that O-line and a bum ankle?

  41. helldog33 says: Sep 12, 2016 1:29 PM

    Evidently, God wanted Suh to step on Wilson’s ankle.

  42. jmethane says: Sep 12, 2016 3:39 PM

    I was a big NE fan last night and despite what you might think, I look at the NE Patriots as a very well run organization and respect them greatly. Certainly one of the best in the NFL. I think the Seahawks are right there with them in terms of how the org is run. Respect isn’t an issue regarding Kraft and BB. They do what they do well. I’m not so big on Tom Brady but whatever that’s just me.

    Apparently I made an impression and you’ve decided to call me out. Sorry if I’ve hurt any feelings, it’s only football. I believe I’ve always been fairly adult in my discussion and never ever go with LOL and LMAO so hey, it could be worse right?
