Russell Wilson no longer on Seahawks injury report

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.

    All back. Possibly pope too. Thankfully it’s at home too.
    I expect a great game by the Hawks.

  2. Good, because his offensive line is going to get him slaughtered this weekend. Cam and the superior Panthers absolutely own the Seasquawks the last few years.

    Funny. I’m sure what you actually meant to say was last season the Panthers beat the Seahawks for the first time since 2007. And even that was a one time thing.

    Actually, what I was referring to was:
    – The postseason blowout in 2015. I think the score was 31-0 at the half.
    – The Panthers’ regular season win against the Seahawks on Oct. 18, 2015.
    – The Panthers’ regular season win against the Seahawks in Seattle in 2014.

  5. The Seahawks lead the series 7-4 (but don’t let facts stand in your way). The Hawks won 5 straight then the Panthers won 2 straight. I loved how you only wanted to talk about the first half of last year’s playoff game. That was cute–sad but cute.

    2016: Panthers 31-24
    2015: Panthers 27-23
    2015: Seahawks 31-17
    2014: Seahawks 13-9
    2013: Seahawks 12-7
    2012: Seahawks 16-12
    2010: Seahawks 31-14
    2007: Panthers 13-10
    2006: Seahawks 34-14
    2004: Seahawks 23-17
    2000: Panthers 26-3

    And perhaps most importantly, hissy-fits-like-a-spoiled-brat-at-press-conferences-and-stomping-out-cuz-you-lost:
    Newton 2, Wilson 0
