Broncos QB Russell Wilson will not play Sunday vs. Jets

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. 

Rypien, 26, is the nephew of Super Bowl winning QB Mark Rypien, and has one career start in his three-year NFL career.
