Wilson completed 25 of 37 passes for 270 yards without a touchdown or an interception in Sunday's 26-24 win over the Falcons. He also rushed six time for seven yards.
Wilson led three touchdown drives, but all three were finished off on the ground. The dual-threat quarterback still looked much less mobile than usual while playing through sprains in his left MCL and right ankle. Wilson's owners should get used to the reduced production on the ground, as it could be weeks until he's back to 100 percent as a runner.
Wilson said Thursday he is "feeling way better" after a week off to rest his left ankle and right knee sprains, the Seattle Times reports.
Wilson said he didn't know if he was back to normal. It would be surprising if he was so soon. Expect another week of limited scrambling and mainly pocket passing, with an emphasis and getting rid of the ball quickly. After a Week 5 bye, the Seahawks play the visiting Falcons, who have allowed a league-high 14 passing touchdowns this season and rank 27th in passing yards allowed per game at 290.2.
Wilson (knee/ankle) completed 23 of 32 passes for 309 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's 27-17 victory over the Jets. He also lost five yards on five carries.
Wilson had been limited by a pair of leg injuries over the last few days, but he shook off the injuries to record his best passing performance of the season. He was ineffective on the ground, which should come as less of a surprise, but it was encouraging to see him throw for multiple touchdowns for the first time in 2016. Seattle will enjoy a bye in Week 5, so expect Wilson's mobility to be improved when the Falcons visits the Pacific Northwest in Week 6.
Wilson (knee/ankle) is slated to play in Sunday's game against the Jets.
A full practice participant throughout the week, Wilson doesn't have a designation on the final injury report. He'll start Sunday's game in New York, but his mobility could be quite limited, just as it was the past two weeks. Wilson will wear a brace to help stabilize his sprained left knee.
Wilson, who sprained the MCL in his left knee last Sunday, said he has had no limitations in practice this week. He was listed as a full participant Wednesday and Thursday. He will wear a knee brace Sunday but said he doesn't expect it to be a hinderance. He is also still recovering from a right high-ankle sprain suffered in Week 2.
