Wilson says he's close to 100%
After being injured in Week 5, Russell Wilson has been working hard to get back on track in his games for the Seattle Seahawks. He knew that his absence would mean that the Hawks are going on a slump, but now he hopes to get back on track and help them win again.
Wilson was said to be out for at least six to eight weeks, and that was not going to fly one for the league’s top players. As a veteran of 10 years, Wilson knows that there are more games to play for him and wants to make the most of it right away.
Being absent from the Hawks’ lineup was inevitable, but Wilson would not want to miss the chance to help his team earn their shot at the playoffs. He may have had tendon damage, dislocation, and even fractures in his middle right finger, but there was no time to rest for the star.
‘My whole mindset was to cut the time in half’, the Seahawks' star QB said. ‘I even beat my own plan, by having amazing people. I feel great. I feel really close. I'm not 100 percent yet but I'm pretty dang close, I don't need to wear a glove. The hand feels strong’.
The star QB said his return to the field is going to make a lot of noise. That is going to change their chances in the coming games and this would put them back in the NFC West race again. The Hawks had a tough stretch with Wilson out and they want to find their way back into the mix once more now with the star at the helm.
‘The first thing is non-negativity’, he said. ‘Just trying to be completely neutral in the midst of it all, knowing that things happen. I'm also knowing that I've been blessed to be able to play all the games I've been able to play and all the things I've been able to do so far in this league. I feel like it's a new beginning’.
Wilson knows this is an opportunity he can’t blow up. The star hopes to see more from his games and win all the way to finish December with a bang.
