Broncos QB Wilson adds hamstring to injury list

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) – Russell Wilson has added a hamstring to his injury list.

A week after receiving treatment for a near-shoulder injury, the Denver quarterback said he tweaked his hamstring during the fourth quarter of Monday night’s 19-16 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

“I was kind of moving and moving on one, I had to throw it. I was pretty good in the fourth quarter. I just tried to get through it and everything,” Wilson said. “I was feeling good moving and running and throwing and everything, especially early, and then this happened, so it was a little bit of an accident. But, you know, I’m trying to find a way to win the game.”

Wilson was 15 of 28 for 188 yards and a touchdown for the Broncos (2-4), who dropped the game in overtime for the second straight week.

Wilson, a nine-time Pro Bowl selection, received an injection for a strained muscle near his throwing shoulder in the Oct. 6 overtime loss to the Indianapolis Colts. An injection of platelet-rich plasma was used to treat a strained latissimus dorsi on his right side. It is a large, flat muscle on the back that runs to the sides and behind the arms. Wilson suffered the injury during the Oct. 2 loss in Las Vegas and then sat it out on a short week.
