Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson said he expects to play again on Sunday against the Giants.
Wilson, who was limited to three starts in 2016 due to a groin injury, has been hampered by hamstring issues throughout the season.
He’s played in three games this season, but none of them have been as good as last season when he was a top-10 fantasy quarterback.
“I’m ready to go,” Wilson said.
“I’m still working on it and trying to get better, but I’m definitely ready to get back out there and play.”
Wilson said he has been getting a lot of treatment from doctors and that he expects the hamstring issue to ease as he’s getting stronger.
He said he’ll have a good week, then return to practice on Friday.
Wilson said the injury didn’t come as a surprise, as he had struggled with hamstring injuries the past two seasons.
Last season, Wilson tore the ACL and MCL of his right knee in a preseason game against the Jets and missed the entire season.
In 2016, Wilson sprained his right ankle and missed all of training camp and the first three games of the regular season.
Wilson’s absence cost him the starting job in Week 3 against the Vikings, and the Seahawks had to use a third-string quarterback in place of him.
Despite the injuries, Wilson has been very effective.
He threw for a career-high 4,063 yards last season and rushed for 2,918 yards, ranking fourth among NFL quarterbacks.
