Although veteran Quarterback – Russell Wilson has been dealing with a right shoulder injury for quite some time now, he was listed as ‘limited’ in the previous couple of practice session for the Denver Broncos. However, it comes to be known that the gradual turn to the field has proved beneficial for the 33-year-old as he would be playing against Indianapolis Colts in Week 5.
The Denver Broncos have already been short-handed with running back Javonte Williams and outside linebacker – Randy Gregory being ruled to the injury reserves. The squad was be extremely under pressure with Russell Wilson also being side-lined. Even Coach Nathaniel Hackett emphasized on how the team is being extremely cautious with Wilson, as he was ‘banged here and there,’ dealing with him in a smarter and more effective manner.
Russell Wilson will already be missing his favorite catcher – Javonte Williams who has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2022-23 season after suffering a horrid injury vs the Las Vegas Raiders. Williams has suffered a torn ACL and LCL as per the reports revealed by the team.
How can Russell Wilson inspire the Broncos to a win in Week 5?
“Definitely devastating for Javonte Williams,” 33-year-old Russell Wilson said, when asked about the injury to one of his favorite catchers in the team, as per ESPN. “A guy that you know he’s going to come back stronger, a guy that works his butt off every day.”
The 33-year-old veteran Quarterback, Russell Wilson has struggled at times with the transition into the Broncos offense, especially in Weeks 2 and 3 against the Houston Texans and San Francisco 49ers, respectively – threw for two touchdowns and rushed for another Sunday against the Raiders. Although his team are in a puddle with 2-2, but it is a known fact that if Wilson gets in his full swing, the Broncos could really be a seriously hot team to lock horns against in the deeper stages.
Asked what would constitute progress for him and the team Thursday, Wilson said, “Winning, that’s it, that’s all that really matters. Be great on third down, great in the red zone, at the end of the day you put on the pads and the cleats to win.”
