Russell Wilson says he did high knees up and down the aisle on Broncos’ flight to London

The Broncos had a long flight to London for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars, and quarterback Russell Wilson says he made the most of his time.

Wilson, who is recovering from a hamstring injury that forced him to miss last week’s game, said that while his teammates slept, he was exercising in the aisle to make sure his legs are ready for this week’s game.

“I was on the plane, first two hours of the eight-hour flight here I was watching film, watching all the cutups and everything else, and then for the next four hours I was doing treatment on the plane,” Wilson said. “I was walking up and down the aisle, everybody else was knocked out, I was doing high knees, working my legs and everything else, making sure I was ready to rock. That was good. Then I fell asleep for one hour and I watched film for the rest. I felt good to go.”

No one can doubt that Wilson is committed to getting himself healthy, although it’s easy to wonder whether some of his teammates were more annoyed by him working out while they were trying to sleep than impressed with his commitment.

Wilson has declared himself ready to play with no limitations against the Jaguars.

  1. Wow is he ever going to grow up? Running up and down the isle mid flight isn’t going to prove yourself to anybody, just start playing smarter and winning games. You won a super bowl and are one of the leagues highest players…so act like it. So stupid.

  2. “You won a super bowl and are one of the leagues highest players”

    Well, he is in Denver

  3. Russell’s a legend in his own mind. Every bad performance brings me joy. Hopefully, Denver doesn’t fire their coach mid-season and Seattle ends up with a top 10 draft pick.

  4. The thing about Wilson is that he tries too hard OFF the field.
    Everything he says or does seems forced with the intent of being more likeable to everyone.

  5. Wilson appears more concernend with his public persona than he is with football. Not a good look.

  6. Seahawk fan here, I’m picking the Broncos to win this one because Russ is playing..He’s a great Q. B once he gets a little decent blocking and some better play calling watch out !!

    A Seahawks fan that doesn’t act like an obsessed, jilted ex? This is the most refreshing post I’ve seen on this website in a long time. You got Marshawn Lynch vibes, hoping for the best for your franchise’s best QB. Good on you.

    Seahawks’ fan here. The above statement is wrong on so many levels.

    Thanks for all the players & picks Denver, you have really set us up!

    Go Hawks!

    Theres just no other way to say this;

    Many in Seattle see him as Russ Inc, NOT as the QB that won Seattles first Super Bowl.

    Time will change that. He will be in the Seahawks Ring of Honor, rightfully so. In the meantime, the PacNW is going to fire a few shots over the bow. If he had behaved more like Hasselbeck, that wouldn’t be happening.

    .. and you’re not a little worried that he picked up right where he left off? you don’t cringe every time you hear; “Broncos Country, lets ride!” ??!

    No, actually it’s stupid.

    The Hawks get Denver’s first two picks. It would take either a clueless Hawks’ fan or a Russ fanboy to root for Denver.

    And this doesn’t count the passive aggressive Russ remarks such as he’s happy he won’t have to single handedly pull up the team.

  11. Could argue he’d be better off watching film the whole time then annoying his teammates while they tried to sleep…

  12. It’s going to be funny to watch all these clownish bandwagon Broncos fans do an about face concerning Wilson when he rebounds. They will all go back to bring giddy about Wilson like they were when the trade was made.

  13. He has one ring and that was on a team with the scariest defense since the 1985 Bears. Other than that – nada.
