Russell Wilson, quarterback for the Denver Broncos, was discarded this Friday by his coach Nathaniel Hackett for the game against the Arizona Cardinals next Sunday corresponding to week 15 of the 2022 NFL season.
“As an organization we decided to give him another week to recover and get him ready to go play against the Los Angeles Rams,” Hackett said of his player, who passed the concussion protocol from the blow he received in last week’s game they lost. against the Chiefs.
In the last period of that duel Wilson crashed to the ground in a play, a moment after the hit the cameras showed a considerable bulge on the side of his forehead, for which he entered the concussion protocol and no longer returned to the game .
Hackett said that when the quarterback received the news that he would not play, he was upset.
“‘Russ’ is one of our main competitors in this game, he is incredible. We informed him of the decision and of course he is not happy with it. He wants to play. He is very competitive as we all know,” he explained.
Despite Wilson’s annoyance, the coach stressed how important it is for the Broncos to take care of their quarterback.
“After discussing and talking throughout this week we have decided what is best for our organization. It’s what’s best for Russell. We talked about this from the top to the bottom.”
Russell Wilson left the Seattle Seahawks at the end of 2021, a team with which he spent 10 years, won a Super Bowl and in which he was considered a legend.
He signed a five-year, $245 million contract with Denver for the 2022 season that made him one of the highest-paid players in the NFL.
The expectation generated by his arrival at the Broncos has been diluted with a season of poor results in which the team no longer has a chance of qualifying for the ‘playoffs’; It occupies the last position in the West division of the American Conference with three wins and 10 losses.
Russell Wilson has 2,805 yards, 11 touchdowns and six interceptions this season.
