Russell Wilson tried to do everything he could to play after a hamstring injury, but Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett on Saturday ruled out the nine-time Pro Bowl quarterback vs. the New York Jets on Sunday.

Hackett's decision was made to allow Wilson time to heal and prevent a lingering injury, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Backup quarterback Brett Rypien, who has taken a significant number of snaps with the starting offense throughout the week, will start.
