RENTON, Wash. (AP) Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson said Thursday he did not suffer a concussion in the NFC championship game against Green Bay, a day after comments in an article in Rolling Stone indicated Wilson may have suffered a head injury.
Wilson says that his comments were misunderstood and he did not have a head injury. Wilson took a big hit in the first half of the championship game from Green Bay's Clay Matthews following an interception. Wilson remained in the game and led Seattle's late comeback for a 28-22 overtime win over the Packers.
In the Rolling Stone article, Wilson raves about a product called Reliant Recovery Water - based in nearby Tacoma, Washington - of which Wilson is an investor. "I banged my head during the Packers game in the playoffs, and the next day I was fine. It was the water," Wilson was quoted as saying in the article.
