Wilson stayed down on the field for a few moments after the injury before walking off and missed the first play of his career because of an injury. Seattle travels to NY to take on the Jets in Week 4 and then has its bye week.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been diagnosed with an MCL sprain, head coach Pete Carroll confirmed on Monday morning.
This time, it was a 37-18 rout of San Francisco marred by a knee injury Wilson suffered in the third quarter when he was pulled down awkwardly by Eli Harold on a sack.
"I don't think it's severe as it looked", Wilson told reporters. Following Russell Wilson's knee injury, he exited the game for a play before returning. A resilient, yet gimpy Wilson finished the series and led the Seahawks to a field goal.
"He walked on the field on his own. That's just how he is", Carroll said. "But that's Russell though".
Wilson was adamant Sunday night that he avoided a major knee injury and Carroll concurred. Seattle literally walked all over the 49er defense, scoring a 41-yard rushing touchdown within the first minute of play to follow a stunning 34-yard pass from Wilson to Doug Baldwin.
It was just the second 100-yard receiving game of Graham's tenure with the Seahawks. Since being drafted in 2012, Wilson has played in two Super Bowls, been named to three Pro Bowls and he led the National Football League in passer rating in 2015. The 49ers simply left too many gaps open for back-up RB Christine Michael (106 YDS, 20 ATT, 2 TD) and the rest of the Seahawk receivers to give the 49er offense, however weak, a chance to keep the game in reach. "I don't know if you could say I did it on my own or not".
The Seahawks may be desiring to have some roster flexibility due to the health of a couple of running backs - Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise. Michael did his best 2015 Rawls impression yesterday by taking his first carry 41 yards for a touchdown. He played for one play Sunday after Wilson was injured. "So it's going to be up to everyone to pick up the slack, get things done and get back to where we know we're supposed to be". Right now, he is in bad shape after having suffered a serious injury, while playing in a game on September 25, 2016.
However, he played only seven games in 2014 because of injuries, including a concussion. Wilson appeared to have better movement on Sunday, but had only one official run for 3 yards.
Seattle quarterback will be out a minimum of 3 weeks with a knee injury. The only snaps he'd previously missed had been coming out of games late in blowouts. 49ers running back Carlos Hyde had 21 carries and 103 yards averaging 4.9 with two touchdowns also.
