Seahawks' Russell Wilson may start on Friday

The Seattle Times - [Full Article]

There hasn't been any announcement regarding the Seahawks' starting quarterback for their third exhibition game. Let's make that clear.

But it appears that rookie Russell Wilson is going to be the choice.

After Wilson passed for led three touchdown drives Saturday in Denver -- passing for two of those scores himself -- Carroll declined to say whether Wilson would get a chance to play with -- and against -- the starters. He again deferred on naming a starter Monday during his weekly radio appearance on ESPN 710 Seattle.

But after the players concluded meetings on Monday, there were multiple indications Wilson is going to start the third exhibition game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: 

It appears that the coaching staff may want to see Wilson play against a first-team defense, so perhaps he still alive in Seattle's QB battle. More likely, the team just wants to make an apples to apples comparison.
