Russell Wilson: Doctors “shocked” by how well ankle has recovered

The initial worry that Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson might be in risk of missing this week’s game against the Rams because of an ankle injury faded away fairly quickly this week.

Wilson hasn’t missed any practice time and while there may still be some lingering concern that Wilson might not be 100 percent come Sunday, there’s little chance he won’t be playing. Wilson deemed himself “ready to roll” on Thursday while also saying that his ankle’s resiliency has marveled the medical community.

“That’s what the doctors and trainers have all been saying is they’re kind of shocked it’s doing this well,” Wilson said, via Curtis Crabtree of PFT and 950 KJR. “Really not any swelling at all or anything like that because I got on it right away and have been hammering it right away. … Ultimately, I started off in the boot the first night, Sunday night, then Monday morning I just got off of it because I knew I wanted to play on Sunday and I know I can’t play in a boot, so you’ve got to find a way.”

It’s all about the nanobubbles these days.

Wilson has never missed a start since being drafted by the Seahawks in 2012 and that streak is in little danger of ending this weekend.

    Must be the fire water.

    Hard to remember the last time somebody recovered slower than expected. It’s the Lake Wobegon of football where everybody heals extra fast.

    Someone needs to get Teddy B a case of that Russel Wilson miracle water and he’ll be ready for Sunday night.

    It’s in the water!

    Didn’t look like Suh did anything. Not surprised he is miraculously healed.

  6. ejmanuelshands says: Sep 15, 2016 6:06 PM

    Trainers hate him.

    Tip from Big Ben: Be sure to wear different colored shoes so everybody knows how brave you are.

    You probably were looking for your hot cheetoh that fell between a belly roll whn they were showing the replay where Suh stepped (not on purpose by any means) on his heel twisting it in the wrong direction when Wilson’s toe was on the ground.

    We’ve heard this before!

    Let’s put 20 seconds up on the clock and see how many Jesus jokes we can make..

    Wilson’s new and unusual therapy involves gentle bites of the ankle administered by members of his immediate family. “All my family on both sides are ankle biters, luckily” beamed Russell, cherubically.

    Recovery water has nanobubbles!!

    I said in the game, “Russ has 4:00 to prove he can be a pure pocket passer”, and he did.

    Now let’s see him try it for 4 quarters. That backdoor pirouette has been a crutch for him long enough, let’s see if being on literal crutches makes the allegorical training wheels come off.

    HGH is some incredible stuff.

  15. doe22us says: Sep 15, 2016 6:32 PM

    The way the ankle buckled under the turf, I will be shocked if his mobility is not hindered some.

  16. draculalambert says: Sep 15, 2016 6:36 PM

    I get my fantasy QB this week.

    *woot woot*

  17. fumblenuts says: Sep 15, 2016 6:36 PM

    God bless you Russell…..fight on!

  18. skawh says: Sep 15, 2016 6:37 PM

    Good news for Hawk fans! Now that the warmup game is out of the way, let’s get that offense movin’!

  19. granadafan says: Sep 15, 2016 6:41 PM

    Now that’s some quality H2O!

  20. bordner says: Sep 15, 2016 6:43 PM

    I’ll bet Ciara’s happy that he recovers so fast.

  21. mudachains says: Sep 15, 2016 6:44 PM

    All that abstinence is paying dividends.

  22. thereisfootballwestofjersey says: Sep 15, 2016 6:52 PM

    Aaron Donald, Michael Brockers, William Hayes, Robert Quinn, Mark Barron, Alec Ogletree, and Akeem Ayers will be the judge, jury and executioners this weekend on the famed Coliseum turf.

    You will be able to tell on the first 3rd down of the game just how well Russell has healed.

    I am predicting it won’t end well for 2012’ers

    Wont be this week fella, I’ve seen us too many times vs the Rams.

    His ankle has been resurrected.

  25. smokehouse56 says: Sep 15, 2016 7:27 PM

    He and Hillary would just make a great couple. Both never sick, both never injured. As least that’s what they say.

  26. squackduckhawk says: Sep 15, 2016 8:09 PM

    I remember another high-profile Seahawk claiming his foot was miraculously healed… Didn’t work out so well either in the short or long term. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice…

  27. joko12blog says: Sep 15, 2016 8:28 PM

    He must’ve talked with Peyton

  28. oreo51 says: Sep 15, 2016 8:29 PM

    Wilson, is the Bionic Man.

    We’re just better people than you or your team.

    He STEPPED on his ankle, idiot!

    Interesting how many QBs Suh has now stepped on “accidentally”

  31. frozenstiff says: Sep 15, 2016 9:01 PM

    Something stinks here and it’s not his foot !!

  32. thenyolive says: Sep 15, 2016 9:16 PM
