Russell Wilson won't be the Denver Broncos' quarterback when they face the New York Jets on Sunday.
As Wilson recovers from a hamstring injury, Denver's starting quarterback Brett Rypien will take Wilson's place in the game, according to head coach Nathaniel Hackett.
Wilson was a limited participant in practice during the week after sustaining the injury late in Monday night's loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.
In addition to that, he was also struggling with a partial muscle tear in his shoulder that had developed since the team's defeat to the Las Vegas Raiders.
For the previous three seasons, Rypien alternated between the Broncos' active roster and practice squad until being given the backup position this year.
Unsurprisingly, the 26-year-sole old's prior NFL start came in 2020 against the Jets. He led Denver to a 37-28 victory by throwing for 242 yards and two touchdowns.
