Broncos Quarterback Injures Hamstring

The Denver Broncos offense has been a mess through six weeks of the regular season, and they've provided few reasons for optimism. Things could still get worse. Head coach Nathaniel Hackett shared after the team's 19-16 Monday Night Football loss to the Los Angeles Chargers that quarterback Russell Wilson had suffered a hamstring injury. Wilson had already been fighting through a shoulder injury this season to limited success. The 11th-year quarterback has led the Broncos to a dead-last ranking in points scored through six games while netting 1315 passing yards.

At 2-4, the Broncos have certainly been a disappointment to this point in the regular season, but it isn't quite time to panic yet. Their defense ranks fourth in points allowed and has kept them close in every game: they've been outscored by a total of 16 points across their four losses. A little improvement on offense could go a long way.
Wilson joined the Broncos this past offseason via a blockbuster trade with the Seattle Seahawks that included multiple players and first-round picks. The Broncos later signed Wilson to a massive five-year, $245 million extension that expires in 2029.

The Seahawks appear to have gotten the better of the transaction so far this season. They rank eighth in scoring under quarterback Geno Smith, who sports a 3-3 record and a 108.1 passer rating.
