Russell Wilson Broncos career has had a rocky beginning, and in Week 5, when the Colts defeated the Broncos on a lacklustre “Thursday Night Football,” Wilson’s season reached a new low.
Wilson has been undergoing therapy for a shoulder ailment ever since he briefly appeared on the injury list before Week 5 in the hopes that he wouldn’t have to miss any time.
Russell Wilson’s is scheduled to start for the Broncos against the Chargers on Monday night in a crucial divisional game, but it will be important to keep an eye on his shoulder as Denver looks to reenergize its lethargic offence.
Wilson’s hasn’t performed nearly as well as he did with the Seahawks through five games this season. The signal-caller, who is in his 11th season, has only thrown four touchdown passes, and his 82.5 passer rating is a sharp contrast to each of his previous four seasons, during which he had passer ratings above 100.0.
The most recent information on Wilson’s injury as of “Monday Night Football” is as follows:
Update on Russell Wilson’s injuries
According to Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett, Wilson “dinged up” his throwing shoulder in a Week 4 defeat to the Raiders, and it was said following Denver’s loss to the Colts that Wilson was suffering from a strained lat, an injury more common in baseball than football.
Wilson played despite the pain against Indianapolis and had a platelet-rich plasma injection the following day, the day after the Broncos offence put on a terrible all-around effort. However, according to NFL Network, it is “unclear” if the injection will help Wilson’s shoulder get better.
Russell Wilson’s has been certain he will play against the Chargers ever since. For the evening game, he assured reporters on Thursday that he would be “ready to play.”
Wilson was classified as a limited participant in practise on Thursday but was changed to a full participant for the sessions on Friday and Saturday. On the Broncos’ official injury report for Monday’s game, he is not listed as injured.
Wilson was fortunate to have an extended week because there were 10 full days between the Colts loss and Monday’s game at SoFi Stadium.
Given how badly he laboured against Indianapolis, it will be interesting to see if Wilson is fully healthy for this game, which the Broncos must win if they want to stop the commotion.
