Russell Wilson was expected to miss four weeks after early-season injury

Russell Wilson sprained his MCL in the Seattle Seahawks Week 3 win over the San Francisco 49ers. On Thursday, Wilson revealed that doctors told him not to play for four weeks.

Wilson has not missed a game in that time. The Seahawks are 4-1-1 overall and are 2-0-1 since the injury. In fact, his play has actually gotten better.

During the first three games, Wilson threw for 755 yards, completed 63.4 percent of his passes, threw two touchdowns, one interception and had an 88.5 passer rating.

In the three subsequent games — when Wilson was supposed to be benched — he’s passed for 804 yards, completed 67.9 percent of his passes, thrown three touchdowns with zero interceptions, all for a passer rating of 99.7.

So, what’s going on? Has Wilson gotten into the Nanobubbles again?

Whatever healing power Wilson has, he’d better stay with it. Wilson has been limited in practice this week. He’s still working through the MCL sprain, and now has a right pectoral injury to go along with it.
