Wilson was clearly limited by his high-ankle sprain, and his inept offensive line did him no favors. With Wilson no longer a threat in the read-option, the Rams pounded the tackle box to stop the Seattle running game. Without a running game, Wilson was left to shoulder the offensive burden, which proved too much. What's more, receivers Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett were injured, as was running back Thomas Rawls.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Seahawks expected a multi-game absence for Wilson due to the sprained ankle suffered in Week 1. In the immediate aftermath of the injury, Wilson wore a boot and iced his right ankle, only to ditch the boot Monday. Jogging was on his docket Tuesday, full practices reigned thereafter, and rehabilitation otherwise dominated his schedule. Adam Schefter of ESPN relayed on Sunday morning that Wilson is actually tending to a high ankle sprain, and although the quarterback is "doing great," his noted elusiveness may not be evident during his ongoing recovery.
A full practice participant throughout the week, Wilson is slated to play in Sunday's game against Los Angeles. While his availability doesn't seem to be in any doubt, the 27-year-old quarterback may not have his usual level of mobility, as he reportedly did a lot of rehab work during the week. In the event of a major in-game setback, undrafted rookie Trevone Boykin would take the reins.
Wilson (ankle) expects to "be ready to roll" Sunday at Los Angeles, Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com reports.
Immediately after sustaining an ankle sprain in Week 1, Wilson's right foot was contained within a walking boot, but he ditched it Monday. In the meantime, he's undertaken a rigorous rehab effort, which according to Wilson has resulted in just six total hours of sleep this week. If the rest of Week 2 prep is dominated by full practices, he should be able to accomplish what both he and the Seahawks' coaching staff expect of him: active status this weekend.
Wilson (ankle) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. "Right now, we're expecting him to be full go," offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell told Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com. "And I don't think he has any different thoughts than that. He's amazing in his preparation. He's probably not even sleeping with all the rehab that he's doing. And I expect him to be ready to go."
After participating in all drills in the open portion of practice -- according to Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR -- it was certainly plausible that Wilson would log a full showing. With the Wilson mystery all but solved after the first practice of Week 2 prep, one question remains: will his noted mobility allow him to sidestep Rams defenders this Sunday? Perhaps the Seahawks will rely more on newly-installed starting running back Thomas Rawls, but Wilson is nonetheless on pace to be under center, as he has been in every game of his four-plus seasons as a professional.
