Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson underwent a procedure on his throwing shoulder on Friday with hopes of it reliving discomfort. The injury is similar to the one that sidelined Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott for the majority of training camp last year, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports:
Rapoport also reports that Wilson has been dealing with a strained latissimus dorsi, which is an injury that is common in baseball players, and one that is not usually treated with an injection. Wilson appeared on the injury report with a right shoulder injury on Tuesday and Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett said Wilson was sore after he “dinged up” his shoulder last Sunday against the Raiders.
Unlike Prescott, who didn’t throw for nearly a month last August to allow the injury to heal, Wilson intends to keep playing when the Broncos return from their mini-bye for a Monday night game against the Chargers on Oct. 17.
