Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson will not play in Sunday’s game against the New York Jets because of a hamstring injury, the team announced.
Backup Brett Rypien will get the start after sharing snaps with Wilson while working with the first-team offense. Wilson was listed as a limited participant during this week’s practice.
Wilson, who has five touchdowns and three interceptions for the 2-4 Broncos, was injured during fourth quarter of Monday night’s 19-16 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. It is not known if Wilson will play against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Oct. 30 in London.
