Pete Carroll implies Russell Wilson won’t be 100 percent

Yes, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has an ankle injury. No, he apparently won’t be missing the game. But, yes, it’s something that likely will affect him at the Coliseum on Sunday.

“I think really great performers find a way,” coach Pete Carroll told reporters on Wednesday regarding Wilson. “You don’t have to be 100 percent all the time to operate at a really high level. That’s part of what’s going on.”

This implies that Wilson will be less than 100 percent on Sunday against the Rams. It’s clear that he’s doing everything to get as close to 100 percent as possible.

“His attitude is as charged up as you can imagine,” Carroll said. “As always, he’s excited to prove that he can make this back and get back and all that. He’s half-crazy about proving it. So he’s good and his attitude is great.”

Wilson fully participated in practice on Wednesday, despite the injury. So his ankle isn’t great, but it could be good enough to get the job done in four days, especially against a Rams team that wasn’t able to score a single point against a much lesser defense on Monday night.

    There, now that’s out of the way maybe the trolls will back away and let the rest of us show the kid some respect.
    RW is one of the most dynamic players in the game today and easily the best proven QB under 30 (sorry Cam). At half speed he is still twice the QB that most teams will be rolling out there this week. A little respect goes a long way between quality opponents.

    Hopefully the Hawks can jump up quick on the Rams and rest RW in the 2nd half. Or it will be just like every other game against them that will be a slobber knocker for 4 quarters.

    Coach should MAKE him sit out a game. Boykin can handle it and the practice would be good for him. The Rams always play dirty and their defense is going to be coming after Russell all day. Rest him until Week 3!

    If he’s only 80% it could be a problem. I mean, 80% of 5-10 is exactly 4-10.

    Now that 2 yard tom is serving his honored suspension will Russell be considered great? Time will tell!

    It still wont be a fair fight. Maybe they should tie his right arm behind his back.

    Hawk fans are implying that just because the 49ers blew out the Rams, Seattle will too.

    It’s gonna be funny though when Russell ends up in a close game, and finds a way to lose to them again.

    And if Seattle loses to the Rams with SF on the schedule next, those ?s and doubts are gonna start creeping in to the fanbase.

    Seattle shoul pull ol Hasselbeck out of retirement to play this one. It’s the Rams, after all.
