Broncos Announce Russell Wilson's Week 8 Status

Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson

After watching the Denver Broncos' Week Seven loss to the New York Jets from the sideline, quarterback Russell Wilson is going to be back on the field Sunday.

Broncos' head coach Nathaniel Hackett announced that Wilson will start when his team faces the Jacksonville Jaguars in London.

Wilson missed last week's game due to a hamstring injury. He has also been playing through a partially-torn lat muscle on his right side this season.

Wilson has struggled this year, his first in Denver. Through six games, he has thrown five touchdowns and three interceptions. The Broncos rank last in the NFL in scoring.

Still, the Broncos should be glad to have him back, as the offense mustered just nine points last week with backup Brett Rypien behind center.

Hackett did not indicate whether Wilson will be limited at all by the injury — nor whether the stretches and high knees he did during the Broncos' eight-hour flight to London made the difference in his availability.
