Wednesday update: Wilson has been removed from the final injury report and is good to go for the Thursday Night Football matchup with the Colts.

Tuesday PM Update: Wilson was a limited participant in practice on Tuesday.

Denver Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett revealed that starting quarterback Russell Wilson has a “dinged up” shoulder ahead of their Week 5 Thursday night matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. Wilson sustained the injury in the team’s 32-23 loss at the Raiders on Sunday and was limited in practice on Monday.

The veteran Pro Bowl quarterback had a better day statistically in the Week 4 setback than he had in his previous three outings with his new franchise. He went 17-25 through the air for 237 yards and two touchdowns, adding an additional 29 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Wilson dealing with a shoulder injury ahead of the Thursday nighter is just more bad news for the Broncos offense after they found out earlier in the day that running back Javonte Williams had suffered a season-ending ACL tear.

Fantasy football implications

Obviously monitor the situation for the next two days as the Broncos will have a short week to operate. Brett Rypien is the backup quarterback in case Wilson is unable to go.
