Carroll says Wilson ‘half crazy about proving’ he can play against Rams on Sunday

SEATTLE – Russell Wilson has no intention of sitting on the bench Sunday.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday his quarterback is just about coming out of his skin in his eagerness to prove he’ll be ready to go when Seattle plays at the Los Angeles Rams.

“His attitude is like as charged up as you can imagine, as always, but he’s excited to prove that he can make it back and get back and all that,” Carroll said. “And he’s half-crazy about proving it.”

Sunday's game kicks off at 1 p.m. on the official home of the Seahawks, Q13 FOX.

Wilson suffered an ankle injury when he was sacked in the third quarter of the Seahawks’ 12-10 victory over the Dolphins last Sunday. His mobility was severely limited, and a report from Ian Rapoport suggested the injury was serious.

Carroll said Wilson is the rare player who can still deliver on the field in the face of injury.

“I think that really great performers find a way,” he said. “They don’t have to be at 100 percent all the time to operate at a really high level.
