Are you ready to see Russell Wilson in orange and navy?
Well, you might have to wait a little longer. Denver Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett said Wilson is not expected to play in the team’s preseason opener against the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday.
“I don’t think so,” Hackett told reporters Wednesday when asked if Wilson would get reps on Saturday. “A guy of his caliber who’s been doing it for so long, I don’t think it matters that much. You always have to take it as a risk-reward. Of course you want to go out there and play football all the time. I think that’s why we train. When you get there, I’ve had a lot of different experiences throughout my career.
The Dallas Cowboys are also expected to play it safe with Dak Prescott.
