Russell Wilson stays in the game despite hurting his other leg

AP

Now Russell Wilson is dealing with injuries to both legs.

Wilson, the Seahawks quarterback who was already playing through a high ankle sprain of his right ankle, suffered an injury again today against the 49ers. This time it was his left ankle that bent awkwardly underneath him, an injury that at first appeared to be serious.

However, Wilson came off the field for just one play before going back in the game. He was moving around gingerly, but he indicated that he was good to go, and the Seahawks’ coaches and medical staff allowed him to keep playing.

With the Seahawks winning 27-3,the Seahawks took Wilson out to let him rest on their next possession. Even if Wilson is OK to play, he looks like he could use a break right now. And maybe some NanoBubbles.

    Jeez Pete, get him out of there. You’re playing the Niners. You’ll still win by 30 without him.

    Starting to think Russell Wilson is all they got anymore since they seem hell bent on keeping him in the game

    He needs to learn from the pocket or he won’t last long in this league. But at least he got paid though.

    He better stay in even with a broken leg for the money they are paying him. No excuses.

    With that O line, he may be on IR soon.

    Love Wilson…hate our offensive line. Come on Schneider, get him some protection!

    Side note: I’ve seen the blitz come up the middle a few times and get absolutely stuffed by Britt. I think we found our new center. Hopefully Ifedi will give us a boost when he gets back as well.

    “He needs to learn from the pocket or he won’t last long in this league. But at least he got paid though.”

    He’s in his fifth year, never missed a game, and already has 2 SB appearances and a ring…

    Soooo

    Boykin is doing just fine right now… Russell can take off his helmet and replace em with a headset.

    ******
    Wilson had the highest QB rating from the pocket last year. That was before he got paid.

    Fantasy Football guys always sound so ignorant around here.

    Complaining to John for help on the line? Did you follow the draft? They picked two new tackles with high picks. One was named a starter he was so good but sprained his ankle before the first game.

    Try to keep up outside of the stats if possible.

    According to the sideline reporter, the plan was to pull him for the 4th quarter anyway (due to the blowout). They ended up pulling him in the 3rd.

    Look at all the injuries in the NFL in recent years, Its all from this 3rd generation turf, Most of these MCL/ACL,etc injuries are from this dang carpet they are using. IT gives ZERO room for players cleats to move. With real grass fields…players feet are given a little wiggle room from grass that can easily give players cleats to move. With turf, the surface gives no room for cleats to move or have any wiggle room…once the players cleats are locked…their feet are permanently planted..which causes these masses amounts of injuries.

    I am shocked that no one has really examined this huge up-rise of injuries as most stadiums are now using this garbage turf field
