Broncos’ Russell Wilson out against Jets with hamstring injury, source says – The Denver Post


Denver will be without quarterback Russell Wilson on Sunday against the Jets.

Wilson, who suffered a hamstring injury late in regulation on Monday night during a loss to the Chargers, will miss just the fourth start of his career, a source confirmed to The Denver Post on Saturday morning.

With Wilson ruled out, backup Brett Rypien is in line to make his first start of the season and the second of his career. The two quarterbacks split repetitions with the No. 1 offense in practice throughout the week.

Coincidentally, Rypien’s only other start came in 2020 against the New York Jets. He threw a pair of touchdowns and three interceptions, but Denver found a way to beat New York, 38-27.
