Russell Wilson offers honest assessment of his health

Russell Wilson in Seahawks gear

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson isn’t bothering to hide that he has not been close to 100 percent since returning from his hand injury.

Wilson admitted that it took a number of weeks after returning from his injury to feel “really good,” and that he’d struggled initially upon returning from injury. He refused to use that as an excuse, however, for his poor play.

Wilson went 20-of-40 against Green Bay, throwing two interceptions and being limited to 161 yards. He hasn’t been great since then, either, and has thrown for more than 250 yards just once since his return to action.

The injury questions will continue to linger around Wilson. The quarterback’s coach only increased that chatter with some recent comments. Wilson won’t use it as an excuse, but it’s clear he’s not playing at 100 percent down the stretch this year.
