Carroll acknowledged there is a consideration of sitting Wilson this week at the New York Jets with the Seahawks bye coming in Week 5, but also said it’s difficult trying to keep Wilson off the field.
Wilson was injured in the third quarter of Sunday’s 37-18 win over San Francisco when he was pulled down awkwardly while being sacked by Eli Harold.
The news wasn’t as good for running back Thomas Rawls. Carroll said Rawls has been diagnosed with an injury to the fibula in his left leg and will be out a few weeks.MORE NEWS: Dak TD Pass To CeeDee Lifts Dallas Cowboys To 35-29 Overtime Win Over Patriots
