Russell Wilson signed a five-year, $245 million contract extension with the Broncos last month. He’s on pace for career lows in completion percentage and passer rating through the team’s first five games. Following the Broncos’ recent loss to the Colts, Russell now has work done on his throwing shoulder.
NFL reports, following the Broncos’ disappointing performance against the Colts on Thursday night, Russell Wilson underwent a procedure on his throwing shoulder on Friday. According to the outlet’s Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport, team doctors have performed a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection on the star quarterback. Wilson is thought to have a strained latissimus dorsi.
Wilson blamed himself for the team’s struggles after a poor performance against the Colts. “It’s very simple. At the end of the day, I have to be better. I have to play better,” he said.
This team, this defense played their butts off tonight. We had some key, good drives [where] we moved the ball. In the red zone, we just didn’t get to capitalize on some of them. There were some plays here and there that we can capitalize on… At the end of the day, throwing two interceptions can’t happen. Can’t happen. I let the team down tonight.
The Broncos are now 2-3 on the season after their loss to the Colts. For a club with Super Bowl aspirations, this was a poor start. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
