A former NFL quarterback who played in eight NFL playoff games with the New England Patriots, Russell Wilson is expected to play in his first game in the postseason this season, a source told ESPN.
Wilson, a two-time Super Bowl winner who is still an elite quarterback, played in seven games in 2014 and 2015, with four starts in each year.
The Seahawks are hoping that Wilson, who has a history of concussions, can play in two more games this season before heading home.
He will have at least one more concussion in the next three months.
Wilson has been out of the lineup since early November with an ankle injury.
He has been working with the team’s medical staff in a bid to make his comeback.
His availability will be determined by the severity of the symptoms.
Wilson had seven starts in 2015, the last season he played in the playoffs.
He was in the final year of his rookie contract when he was placed on injured reserve.
