Carroll: Russell Wilson has MCL sprain, but “feeling great”
RENTON, WASH. >> Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has a sprained MCL in his left knee and coach Pete Carroll raised the possibility on Monday of Wilson missing the Week 4 game against the New York Jets.
Carroll said during his weekly radio show on KIRO-AM on Monday morning that Wilson “feels great” and that his recovery is already going “exceedingly well.”
Wilson underwent an MRI on Sunday night that confirmed the ligament sprain and Wilson received treatment all night, Carroll said.
Carroll did not express the severity of the sprain and acknowledged there is a consideration of sitting Wilson this week at the New York Jets with the Seahawks bye coming in Week 5. But Carroll added that it’s difficult trying to keep Wilson off the field.
“We’ll see what happens,” Carroll said. “We’re going to do the right thing.”
