The Seahawks injury report was populated with 12 separate names on Wednesday. But for the first time since the regular season opener, Seattle’s injured list didn’t include quarterback Russell Wilson.
Wilson has had three separate injuries through the first 12 weeks of the regular season. Wilson sustained a high-ankle sprain against the Miami Dolphins in Week 1 when Ndamukong Suh stepped on the back of Wilson’s heel in recording a sack. Two weeks later, Wilson suffered a sprained MCL in his left knee being pulled down from behind by Eli Harold of the San Francisco 49ers.
The latter injury was the most significant Wilson has had to play with in five seasons as Seattle’s quarterback.
Wilson also suffered a pectoral strain in Seattle’s 6-6 tie with Arizona in Week 7.
Wilson started every game for the Seahawks over the span though he was significantly limited in his ability to use his legs and escape pressure. He had a season-high 80 rushing yards last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which indicates he is close to be back to his normal self.
Defensive end Michael Bennett (knee), free safety Earl Thomas (hamstring) and center Justin Britt were full participants in Seattle’s practice on Wednesday. Thomas and Britt missed Sunday’s game in Tampa while Bennett has been out for five games after knee surgery.
