The Seahawks have been one of the NFL’s best teams for the last handful of seasons, but they don’t always seem to put their best foot forward each week. In week 3’s win over the 49ers, Seattle had their best outing of the season. They improved to 2-1 following the 37-18 victory.
But that may have come with a price. Russell Wilson injured his knee in the win. Wilson left the game briefly in the 3rd quarter after being tackled awkwardly by Niners’ LB Eli Harold. He re-entered the game, but wasn’t himself. Following the game, it was revealed that Wilson suffered. As of right now, he’s not expected to miss any time. But we’ll wait and see what the week brings.
“I don’t think it’s severe as it looked,” Wilson said after the game regarding his knee. “I have good mobility. … You always feel better when you win.”
Trainers were later seen placing a left knee brace on Wilson. Given the lopsided score, it made perfect sense for the team to not risk placing their franchise cornerstone out on the field to finish the game.
