Russell Wilson claims injured hamstring is healing quickly thanks to ‘Wolverine blood’

Russell Wilson compared himself to the superhero “Wolverine” because he too has a supernatural ability to heal. “I heal quick. It’s Wolverine blood or something,” Wilson said in a Wednesday news conference when addressing the severity of a hamstring injury he suffered in a Week 6 loss to the Chargers.

Wilson may possess special healing abilities, but he didn’t confirm if he will be ready for a Sunday matchup against the Jets. “If I can go. I’ll go.” Wilson said.

He’s currently listed as day-to-day on the injury report and was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice, per head coach Nathaniel Hackett. 

Although Wilson is trying to show his toughness he admitted the injury bothered him saying, “it kind of got me pretty good in the fourth quarter,” following the loss.

It not only affected Wilson it changed the dynamic of the offense. Hackett admitted he altered the play calling “a little bit,” in a post-game news conference. 

Wilson already received a special injection in his right shoulder after a Week 5 loss to the Colts. Hearing the offense is continuing to accommodate to Wilson’s withering durability is a concern.

Perhaps the injuries explains the Broncos’ woes. They rank last in scoring offense. 

Even though Wilson consistently tries to cast himself as a hero he needs to get healthy. Having trainers and coaches constantly tending to your pain is a bad sign.

Also, the Broncos backup quarterback Brett Rypien has some experience. Coincidentally his one career start was a victory against the Jets in 2020. A performance Wilson took note of on Twitter.
