Russell Wilson injury could cause tweak in Seattle's playcalling

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Seahawks admitted they had to call the game differently after the QB Russell Wilson injury.

"We looked after him a little bit," HC Pete Carroll said. "We weren't sure what he could do, and we didn't want to tax him too much. We kept him in the pocket more than normal, just to make sure that we didn't force him to go."

Fantasy Impact: 

Wilson said in the story he's comfortable playing in the pocket, but with the recent news his ankle injury is significant, his status for Week 2 is now in question. If he plays, he likely won't be 100-percent and the Seahawks could be forced to run more and rely more on Wilson's arm instead of his athleticism.
