Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson was listed as a limited participant in Broncos practice again on Tuesday, but the right shoulder issue that’s affecting him isn’t causing him to be concerned about his availability for Thursday.

Wilson spoke to reporters on Tuesday and said, via Nick Kosminder of TheAthletic.com, that he is “super confident” that he’ll be playing against the Colts. He added that he believes he will be able to play “without limitations” from the shoulder.

Wilson was 17-of-25 for 237 yards and two touchdowns against the Raiders on Sunday, but the Broncos lost 32-23 to fall to 2-2 on the season.

The full Broncos injury report will be released later on Tuesday and final injury designations for the game will come on Wednesday.

  1. Wilson will play through injury to the detriment of the team. Honestly, watching him this season and the last part of last season, he just has not looked like the passer he was prior to his finger injury. Now a shoulder issue.. Colts should look out for a lot of designed QB runs.

  2. Everyone wants to hate the guy, but just know it took Rodgers and Ryan about a year to learn the same system. Wilson is going into a completely new environment, while learning the system. You got people “comparing” Geno Smith stats to Russell Wilson stats like they in the same exact scenario lol.

  3. Has any QB ever fallen off the table so quickly from physical issues mounting?

  4. Please let him play! The Seahawks have their draft picks and he has been such a joy for us to watch

  5. He will play no matter what, his ego doesn’t want to let Rypien play and Brett ends up doing a better job at running the offense and completing passes.

  6. Russ(LOOK AT ME) played horrible lately. What’s going on man? You got your money worth out of your mouth.

  7. I’m “super confident” that the Broncos made a huge mistake signing this guy to a long term deal.

  8. Russ was good because of his physical ability to run around and pass, he is not good at running anymore so now he just isn’t good at playing football.

    Yes, you are right. They are different. Geno makes 3.5 million this season, and has been a backup for the last 10 years, compared to Wilson’s 35 plus, an Offense tailored just for him, and Hall of Fame aspirations …..So who should we Expect to be having a Superior Season?

    Nice try “Team 3”

    Go Geno!
    Go Hawks!

  10. Nope….new rule says you hurt Sunday NO football Thursday. Easiepiecie nice and easy.

  11. Last year he came back too soon. Geno should have started last year’s game in Pittsburgh. And maybe a couple more after that. But as Russ says, ‘Unwavering!’ Even if he hurts the team.

    That is because it is Always First, ALL about Russ’s “Legacy!” If the team happens to win too, well that is nice…

    Go Hawks!

  13. He gained weight and became a diva. He has fallen off a cliff. Top 5 QB to Top 20 QB in 2 years.

  14. Denver not “super-confident” that spending $250 million to start the season off worse than they did last year is such a great idea after all.

  15. I used to be a Russell Wilson fan when he was in college and early in the NFL before we got to know the players as well as we do now, but for a while now I decided that he was a “bad 5 letter word.” I know that its not right to judge someone u have never met and I don’t dislike him like I do Tyreek Hill, Adrian Peterson, or Peyton Manning but I just don’t like the guy as a person and I think it’s hard to follow someone like that in a sport where people put everything on the line, even their lives technically. I like the Broncos but a lot of fans gave me grief for calling for the Broncos to go 7-10 last spring. The Russell Wilson offense is too inconsistent and there is always going to be a team in the playoffs that have guys that can easily stop what Russell is doing now that the league has had to adjust to playing Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes.

  16. He’s been overrated for his entire career. A top end run game and defense covered him up for quite a few years, but his true colors started to show recently and the Hawks recognized it or already knew it and cut loose.

  17. The Broncos recipe for success – hire a new Coach and trade for a questionable elite QB right before new ownership takes over……………………………………

  18. Who I say who could have predicted that Wilson would prove extremely pedestrian when forced to operate outside the Seattle bubble

    Every time he tries to run a real offense, he fails

    His success is based on .. fall behind 2-3 scores .. chuck it underthrow to draw DPIs .. woo big exciting comeback

    Russ won the off season at least. No one can take that away.

    +++

    Nah, its easy to think that bc he got away like a bandit with his extension and perceived grievances against Pete .. But it’s definitely looking more and more like the SEAHAWKS won the offseason !!

    Broncos should have traded for Jimmy Garappolo
    ——————————–

    I said the same. And im a huge Bronco fan..

  21. As a Seahawks fan… I know now how the Jets fan feel. They sat back and watched and laughed as Jamal Adams imploded and they took off with all our draft picks. Now we look upon the Broncos with the same amusement.

  22. User Ogre4nerds nailed it. Wilson has not looked like himself since the finger injury. While things like his age, weight, and mobility have been building issues over the past couple years, his accuracy has always been his key to success. I don’t know if it’s the accuracy declining due to the finger (remember he has plates and screws in there now) or if we are seeing the validation of the high skillset of the receivers he always had in Seattle. But any way you look at it his stats say he is having a down…way down…year so far.

  23. I hate to pile on but he is who he is. Without an elite D, elite run game and elite WR’s he is a below average QB.

  24. And a onea and a Tua and a threea as Wilson will fall and stay down .. but then again could not happen to a more deserving guy tots n pears with the backup as surely he can’t play worse than the big bucks crapup !!!

  25. Don’t worry. The pathetic Colts D will make this bum look like Joe Montana. Also predicting latavius Murray to rush for over 150 yards

  26. I’m not ready to write Wilson off after 4 games with a headcoach who is in over his head. When Hackett gets fired after the season let’s what Wilson does next season.

    As for Seattle fans seem to forget that
    Pete Carroll was a below .500 coach on the verge of being fired for a third time before lucking into Russ. Carroll, Lynch and most of that defense were there before Russell Wilson and the team sucked. I don’t think either of these team will be contending in the foreseeable future but the Seahawks are going to be back to being a laughingstock. Happy for Geno though.

  27. Well see. Still a lot of football left but as of now Russell Wilson looks like a terrible plan B to landing Aaron Rodgers. He was never in Rodgers category really, but they paid him like he was before ever taking a snap for them. Thats the issue, They could have made a similar upgrade over Bridgwater/Lock for far less.

  28. i guess drafting a slightly above average quarterback was getting old for the donks.
    .
    now they are wasting tons of picks, players, and money… on a slightly above average quarterback.
    .

  29. So glad the Eagles didn’t trade for him and that we have Hurts vs Russ!!!

    He looks like on a major downhill slide in his career and big mistake by Broncos

    I have been a Hawks fan since the beginning, and what you have posted is simply not true. Pete was not on the “Hot Seat” before drafting Wilson. Most of the defense & Lynch were acquired the season or so before Wilson, as Pete built the team.

    You can hate the team, but the facts are there….

    Go Gino!

    Go Hawks!

  31. Watching Russell Wilson attempting to impersonate a pocket passer is . . . sad.
