Can the Broncos’ Russell Wilson actually start against the Jaguars in NFL Week 8 in London?

From injections, to workouts on planes, the Broncos QB claims he’s feeling “great.” So, the question is, ‘Can he bring back that Seahawks form we all want to see?’

As they prepare to cross the Atlantic for Week 8′s game, the Broncos will be bolstered by the fact that their QB is back in the mix and ready to go. The question now is, ‘Can they get the win?’

Broncos’ Russell Wilson set to return in London vs Jaguars in Week 8

When they head to London, England for their game against the Jaguars in Week 8 of NFL’s regular season, the Broncos will debut a new uniform combination. Yet, that’s not the only news coming out of Denver’s camp and certainly not the best. Indeed, according to reports, Russell Wilson will be front and center for the unveiling. Having sat out Denver’s Week 7 loss to the Jets as he fought to recover from a hamstring injury, the under-fire star spoke about his fitness on Wednesday saying, he’s “ready to rock” for Week 8. Incidentally, Wilson was officially limited at practice at the start of the week. To that end, he was asked if he could take the field here at now, to which he responded, “I feel great.”

The Broncos’ faith & Russell Wilson’s workout on a plane

It was earlier this week, when Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett said that Wilson was “trending toward” playing against Jacksonville. Adding further wait to the idea, Hackett added on Wednesday that Wilson did “quite a bit” during the first day of preparation for the weekend’s game. Interestingly, Wilson also added further details when he explained that he actually spent time exercising and stretching during the flight to England. Wilson explained, that during the eight-hour flight, he spent the majority of the time performing knee-ups in the aisle of the plane, while his teammates slept.

At this point, the Broncos will be crossing fingers AND toes that he can hold firm for the entirety of Sunday’s clash. In truth, the Super Bowl champion has not had the best start to his time in Denver. Further compounding that fact, has been a slew of injuries including one to his throwing shoulder, which even required an injection earlier this year. On the occasions that Wilson has managed to stay healthy enough to play, he has not managed to perform well enough, to prevent the Broncos from falling to a 2-5 record. With all of that said, Wilson’s return is good news for the Broncos, but whether or not he can finally start to come good for the team, remains to be seen.
