Russell Wilson practicing on Wednesday

This week opened with speculation that Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson might not be able to play against the Rams in Los Angeles this Sunday because of an ankle injury.

The last two days have brought little reason to think that will be the case, however. The Seahawks have not added a quarterback to the 53-man roster, opting to sign rookie Jake Heaps to the practice squad in the only move at the position, and coach Pete Carroll said that the team didn’t view the injury as anything serious.

On Wednesday, Carroll provided further reason to think Wilson will be in the lineup at the Coliseum on Sunday afternoon. The coach said that Wilson will be a full participant in Wednesday’s practice, something that wouldn’t be the case if the Seahawks and Wilson had much fear about the possibility of aggravating an injury that would cloud his availability for any games.

That should put an end to¬†any nerves about Wilson’s ability to go this week and, based on the way Monday night went for the Rams, give the Seahawks a jolt of confidence as they prepare to face a team that beat them twice last season.

    That twist looked pretty gruesome at the time. Glad he has iron ankles. He’ll surely be slowed down against a good pass rush, though. May the best team win on Sunday. Good luck Rams, GO HAWKS!

    Seattle will pretty much purposely muddle their way and win ugly til the bye week….basically by design.

    No matter how well Seattle plays or how badly the Rams have been, these games always make me nervous, and for good reason. They seem to play their best against the Hawks.

    Did you know that Wilson is the best QB in NFL HISTORY through their first four years in the league?

    If you want a QB that throws INTs in the playoffs, then Russell Wilson is your guy. But if you don’t have a great defense to win in the playoffs despite bad QB play, go with someone else.

    Your team won. Troll elsewhere.

    Patfan, this is what being a sore winner looks like. It really is easy to hate the pats because of fans like this. We at least had the excuse of being historically bad for decades to excuse some of our crappy fans.

    Pats fan,

    I have noticed that too!

    The value of that win is less than zero based on the fact that you had to cheat to get to it in the first place. Add in the fact that your only support is from a Vikes-troll and you may as well give up and become a fan of the WWE instead.
