The status of Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson, who will miss today's game against the Jets due to a partially torn hamstring, is unknown.

Testing on Tuesday revealed a partial tear, also known as a Grade 2 strain

which typically lasts for several weeks due to the possibility of further injury.

Wilson wanted to play through it in public and in private

but there was almost no chance the Broncos would allow him to do so on Sunday.

Wilson will be replaced against the Jets by the backup Brett Rypien, who will make his second career start.

According to sources, Wilson vehemently argued for the right to play

reasoning that he endured worse while playing for Seattle.

Throughout the week, he moved around and threw things

and he believed he could adequately defend himself.
