SEATTLE -- Russell Wilson is already dealing with more injuries in the first three weeks of the 2016 season than the first four years of his career. Bobby Cox Jersey .This time, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback got lucky.Wilson threw for 243 yards and a touchdown before suffering a left knee injury and the Seattle Seahawks rolled to a 37-18 rout of the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.Wilson was injured with about 10 minutes to go in the third quarter getting pulled down awkwardly on a sack by San Franciscos Eli Harold.Harold was called for a horse collar penalty, but the bigger concern was how he fell on Wilsons left leg.Fortunate. I dont think its as severe as it looked, Wilson said.Seattle coach Pete Carroll referred to the injury as a slight sprained knee and Wilson was set to undergo an MRI to verify the initial diagnosis.Wilson stayed down on the field for a few moments after the injury before walking off. Wilson missed the first play of his career because of an injury, but returned almost immediately -- and without perhaps the approval of his coaches -- to throw one more pass.The completion led to the third of Steven Hauschkas three field goals for a 27-3 lead and after that Wilsons day was done.He walked on the field on his own. You could see all the coaches were like `Nobody told him to do that, wide receiver Doug Baldwin said. But thats Russell though.Wilson had a brace placed on his left knee, and he never saw the field again, giving the final 1 1/2 quarters of the blowout to rookie Trevone Boykin.Wilson finished 15 of 23 passing, including an 18-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jimmy Graham. Boykin also threw the first TD pass of his career, hitting Baldwin on a 16-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter.Baldwin had eight catches for a career-high 164 yards.It was a big day for Seattles offense that slogged through the first two weeks, scoring just 15 points in the first 120 minutes of the season.The Seahawks nearly matched that total in the first 11 minutes of the game thanks to the first two touchdowns of Christine Michaels career.It was amazing. I give all that to my offensive linemen, Michael said.Getting the start with Thomas Rawls out because of a shin injury, Michael had TD runs of 41 and 4 yards on Seattles first two drives, the first drive taking three plays and just 43 seconds. Michael rushed for 106 yards on 20 carries, the second 100-yard game of his career.Carlos Hyde two TD runs in the fourth quarter for San Francisco, but the 49ers had just five first downs entering the fourth quarter and missed on their first 10 third-down attempts. Blaine Gabberts streak of 12 straight games with a touchdown pass ended as he was 14 of 25 for 119 yards and an interception.We knew we were going against the most talented group defensively we were going to face and knew it was our job specially to convert on third down and we didnt do that, San Francisco coach Chip Kelly said.WILSONS INJURIESThe knee injury for Wilson comes on top of the Seattle quarterback suffering a sprained right ankle in the opener against Miami . Wilson never missed a snap against the Dolphins and played the entire game last week against Los Angeles, although his mobility was limited. Wilson appeared to have better movement on Sunday, but had only one official run for 3 yards.Seattle may not have wanted a bye in Week 5, but it could end up being critical for the health of its quarterback.STREAK SNAPPEDSeattle had not allowed a 100-yard rusher in the previous 24 games, a streak that dated to Week 11 of the 2014 season when Kansas Citys Jamaal Charles topped the 100-yard mark.Hyde finally snapped Seattles streak when he topped 100 yards on his final carry, an 8-yard TD run with 56 seconds left. Hyde finished with 103 yards.GRAHAMS IMPACTGraham seems fully back from the torn patellar tendon suffered last November. The athletic tight end had six catches for 100 yards and a touchdown in the first half on Sunday for Seattle.Grahams score was his first TD since Sept. 27, 2015. He later wrestled a 40-yard jump ball away from safety Eric Reid that set up a field goal. Graham also had an 18-yard catch to convert third-and-15 in the first quarter.It was his second 100-yard receiving game since joining Seattle via trade before last season.BATTERED NINERSSan Francisco lost two key players in the first half. Tight end Vance McDonald suffered a hip injury in the second quarter and did not return. And starting cornerback Jimmy Ward injured his quadriceps covering a kickoff in the second quarter and also did not return.The loss of McDonald was compounded when backup Garrett Celek was hit the back by Kam Chancellor on the first possession of the second half. Celek returned later in the third quarter. John Smoltz Jersey .com) - The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks both take aim at their first wins of the season on Saturday, as the Canucks open their home slate at Rogers Arena. Bob Uecker Jersey . -- Ken Appleby made 32 saves for his first shutout of the season to lead the Oshawa Generals to a 2-0 win over the Belleville Bulls on Wednesday in Ontario Hockey League action. . Pence singled in the winning run with no outs in the ninth inning to give the Giants a 7-6 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday. METAIRIE, La. --?New Orleans Saints veterans Drew Brees and Zach Strief expressed concerns Monday that the growing mistrust in the NFL league office has spilled over from the players to the fans and is hurting the leagues popularity.We feel like [the decline in TV ratings] is a direct result, said Brees, who has been an outspoken critic of the way NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has handled controversial issues such as the Bountygate investigation of the Saints, the Deflategate investigation of the Patriots, and the Ray Rice and Josh Brown domestic violence investigations.I know the players dont have any faith in the way that things are conducted within the front office in the NFL -- certainly when it comes to any type of investigation, when it comes to any type of commissioner discipline, Brees said. Its really kind of a joke at this point, unfortunately. And it shouldnt be like that.Brees and Strief spoke to ESPN after the Saints players had their annual in-season meeting with NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith. They agreed that the NFLs declining TV ratings could be a result of probably a buildup over the last few years.Its hard to separate em. It all works together, said Strief, who is in his final year as the Saints player representative. The NFL front office has seemed to have found a way to make everything somewhat contentious. It feels like theres this constant assault on the players, like were two entities. Its like they dont think they need us to do this.?And I think over time, as its constantly in the media and its constantly a public issue, I think the fans start to feel a similar way. Its just a constant contentious issue. When you take Brady and say it affected Tom Brady and it affected the New England Patriots, well the fans feel like theyre a part of that. It does affect them and it does affect their team and it does affect how you feel about the league, and it does turn you off.?At thee end of the day, the relationship between the front office and the people who are not in the front office has probably never been worse. Youth Braves Jerseys. The Saints comments echoed those of Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, who last week blamed Goodell and the NFL for making the NFL no fun anymore, including imposing strict rules against player celebrations.Brees mentioned the crackdown on player celebrations as another factor that may have turned fans off in recent years.Brees, who was an outspoken critic of Colin Kaepernicks decision to protest during the national anthem, also acknowledged that such protests could be a turn-off to fans.I think its just been a culmination of a lot of things over the last three years that unfortunately might have just turned people off or caused them to be less engaged, said Brees, a former player rep and a former member of the NFLPAs executive committee, who said his hope when he first joined the NFLPA was that there would be a partnership between the players and the league office to move the game forward.And unfortunately weve never felt that feeling reciprocated from their end, Brees said. In fact its very much been a, Were gonna do things behind closed doors. And you just kind of believe what we tell you. And unfortunately thats jumped up and bit us, and I named all those cases ... where you certainly cant trust anything thats coming out of the league office at this point.Listen, we as players want the best for this league. This league has so many great things to offer ... and for a long time the fans were really enjoying it. And now it seems like thats taken a hit. And it really feels like its been the culmination of the last few years and the way the business of football is being run in the front office. Thats the concerning part at this point for us. NFL Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Stitched Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap Jerseys Throwback Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys ' ' '
