Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN Seattle on Monday that quarterback Russell Wilson could be limited in practice this week.
But Carroll also said Wilson’s ankle sprain is “nothing very serious” and suggested he would “make it through” for Sunday’s road game against the Los Angeles Rams.
Wilson’s ankle was stepped on twice by Dolphins tackle Ndamukong Suh early in the third quarter Sunday. But Wilson still managed to lead Seattle to a come-from-behind 12-10 win over Miami with 2-yard-touchdown pass to Doug Baldwin with 31 seconds left. The TD completed a 14-play, 75-yard drive.
Asked by @710ESPNSeattle if Russell Wilson has high-ankle sprain Pete Carroll says QB has "little bit of everything" but will "make it thru"

Wilson had X-rays on the ankle after the game and Carroll said “he’s all fine there … a little bit of swelling but he’ll make it through.”
The QB will likely be limited in practice, Carroll hinted during the interview with ESPN.
Wilson tweeted earlier in the day “See you in L.A.,” a likely indication he will be under center when the Seahawks play in Los Angeles. If Wilson does play, the injury could likely limit his mobility. And that’s not a good thing because the Seahawks offensive line is in shambles (Pro Football Focus five months ago said Seattle’s unit may be the worst position group in the NFL).
It will be the Rams’ first game in L.A. since 1994.
