It appears that Russell Wilson has been playing through injury this season.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Wilson has played the last two games with a partial tear in his shoulder.

Wilson has recently flew to LA to get injection to help ease the pain but will continue to play this season.

Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson underwent a procedure on Friday in hopes of relieving discomfort near his throwing shoulder — an injury similar to the one that sidelined Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott for most of training camp last year, per sources.
Sources say Wilson has been dealing with a strained latissimus dorsi — an injury more commonly seen in baseball players, and one that is not usually treated with an injection. He popped up on the injury report with a right shoulder injury on Tuesday, and coach Nathaniel Hackett said Wilson was sore after he “dinged up” the shoulder in last Sunday’s loss to the Raiders.
Unlike Prescott, who didn’t throw for nearly a month last August to allow the injury to heal, Wilson intends to keep playing when the Broncos return from their mini-bye for a Monday night game against the Chargers on Oct. 17.
Some fans believe Wilson is using his injury as an excuse for his poor play.
