RENTON, Wash. – Russell Wilson has run for the fifth-most yards of any offensive player in the NFL over the past two weeks.
That's fine by the Seattle Seahawks if those yards are coming within the scope of their offense. They want Wilson's scrambling and running to be a component of what they do offensively.
But much of what Wilson has done on the ground is because of the pressure he has faced because of Seattle playing with a makeshift offensive line.
Down three starters on the offensive line for the past two weeks, the Seahawks survived the pressure brought by the defenses in Houston and Indianapolis.
And now they may be turning the corner of health with the expectation that All-Pro center Max Unger will be back on Sunday against Tennessee.
