Russell Wilson (ankle) practices fully for Seahawks

You didn't expect Russell Wilson to miss Sunday's game, did you?

After suffering a nasty ankle injury in the Seattle Seahawks' Week 1 win, the quarterback is on pace to play in Los Angeles.

Wilson was a full participant in practice on Wednesday, and coach Pete Carroll said that Wilson is "excited to prove" he can make it back this week.

At this point the question should be less about whether Wilson will play and more about be how restricted his mobility will be during the contest. In Sunday's victory, Wilson's famed elusiveness was hindered, as we'd expect after getting his foot stepped on by a 305-pound defensive tackle in Ndamukong Suh, negating some of his big plays.

The Seahawks' offensive line proved shaky in Week 1, especially up the gut. Facing a penetrating Rams defensive line, led by Aaron Donald, Wilson might be under siege again in Week 2. If Wilson's mobility remains less than 100 percent Sunday, we could see an adjustment in game plan from the Seahawks to get the ball out of his hands quicker.
