Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson: 'No doubt' I'll play Sunday

Instead, Wilson again proved amazingly indestructible, and was listed by the team as fully participating in practice all week, saying on Thursday that there was "no doubt" he would start against the Jets.
Wilson has started 77 consecutive games (67 regular season, 10 postseason) since entering the National Football League and Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Wilson is "pretty determined" to play against the Jets.
"I wanted to say this: When we make these decisions with our players and how we support the information, how we support the process of the comeback and all that, it's really clear".
RENTON Russell Wilson looks as good as he's been since the opener, nearly as if he never sprained his knee last week. Considering how it looked live, it's surprising Wilson didn't suffer a more serious injury. So he feels great. "I don"t see any reason to think otherwise.". Carroll also added that he'd be surprised if Wilson didn't suit up for Seattle's next game. Fitzpatrick can't be as bad as last week, but he may not be good enough to make a difference.
Carroll said Reed has a hip issue that first crept up in the win over the 49ers Sunday and worsened during the week.
"I just got here so we haven't really got into that".
"I don't think it's unrealistic to expect that", Smith said. "Like, 'what's the problem?' We need to fix it". Michael played well when he returned previous year, though, rushing for 149 yards in three games (4.9 per carry), and then rushing for 70 more in the playoff win at Minnesota.
Enunwa will have his work cut out for him this Sunday.
Even when things were going horribly wrong in Kansas City, coach Todd Bowles said he never considered a call to the bullpen.
Now, facing another elite tight end in Jimmy Graham, who posted 100 yards last week, the Jets will surely take a different approach. RB Matt Forte is averaging 3.9 yards per carry and always brings a versatile weapon as a receiver out of the backfield. So expect an ugly, defensive slugfest of a game, and give a slight edge to the very desperate Jets. The under is also 7-2 in Seattle's last nine games overall, is 5-0 in its last five games following an ATS win, and 4-0 in the Seahawks' last four games versus a team with a losing record.
The Seahawks' running game is doing just fine in the post-Beast Mode era thanks to Christine Michael.
Despite a better performance against San Francisco, the offensive DVOA numbers for the season remain well below expectations. "We'll know more after today what he feels like".
"You can have a mentality that pushes you past the point where you're not using all of the information, you're not using the best sense", Carroll said.
Baldwin is off to a strong start with 20 receptions for 276 yards and two touchdowns.
To the Jets' credit, they rank third against the rush this season, allowing 3.3 ypc thus far and notably holding the Buffalo Bills' LeSean McCoy to 59 yards in Week 2.
Robby Anderson has gone from undrafted free agent to training camp star to part-time player, and now may be starting Sunday against the Seahawks.
