Denver Broncos QB Russell Wilson dealing with hamstring injury after loss to Chargers

Denver Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett told reporters Tuesday that quarterback Russell Wilson sustained a hamstring injury during the Broncos Week 6 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.  Wilson will be undergoing additional tests and scans to determine the severity of the injury and a potential timetable to return.

Wilson was injured in the fourth quarter, but played for the remainder of the 19-16 loss on Monday. He completed 15 of 28 passes for 188 yards and a touchdown. The quarterback told reporters:  “I got my hammy. I kinda scrambled and moved around on one and I had to throw it away. It got me pretty good in the fourth quarter. I just tried to play through it and all that. I felt good moving around, running around, throwing it and everything else, especially early on and then that happened. So that was a little unfortunate, but, ya know, trying to find a way to win a game.”

Wilson previously injured his throwing shoulder in the Broncos’ Week 5 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, and unwent an injection procedure on that shoulder on Oct. 7.   The Pro-Bowler completed just 58.6% of his throws for 1,442 yards, five scores and three interceptions through his first six starts this season – a career-low.

The Broncos (2-4) will host the New York Jets (4-2) at 4:05 p.m. EDT Sunday in Denver.
