Russell Wilson revealed he sustained a hamstring injury during Monday Night Football. On Monday Night Football, the Denver Broncos took on the Los Angeles Chargers at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. Wilson gave his best to play through the hamstring injury, but it didn't help the Broncos get the win as the Chargers beat the Broncos 19-16 in overtime.
"I kind of scrambled to move around on one, I had to throw it away, it kind of got me pretty good in the fourth quarter. Just tried to play through it, just trying to find a way to win the game.," Wilson said after the game, per ESPN.
After a Week 5 game versus the Indianapolis Colts, Wilson took an injection to address his shoulder discomfort. Wilson's shoulder responded well after the treatment, but the Broncos didn't get a win. "Shoulder did good, but listen, the only thing that matters is us winning.
Not going to sugarcoat it, the only thing matters is us winning, there's no excuse for it, we've got to find a way," Wilson noted.
Wilson not happy with how the team played in the second half
Wilson got off to a great start as he went 10-of-10 in the first quarter.
After a great start to the game, Wilson finished with 15-of-28 for 188 yards and a touchdown. The Broncos offense scored a total of six points in the second half and overtime. "We could have done it cleaner in the second half.
The reality is it's just not good enough. We've got to be better, we've got to play sharper, we've got to find ways to make plays, we've got to find ways to get touchdowns. Felt like we should have won that game," Wilson added.
Following their third consecutive loss, the Broncos have dropped to 2-4. The Broncos, who entered this season with Super Bowl aspirations, aren't looking like a Super Bowl. Going forward, Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett wants more urgency from his team.
"This is very disappointing. We need to have a lot more urgency across the board -- it starts with me as a coach, then all of the other coaches, then to the players. Players need to be just more urgent. We've got to execute at a higher level, and we've got to come up with some better plays," Broncos coach Hackett said.
