Injuries have kept Wilson off the field for weeks, but the Seattle Seahawks quarterback is a must-have for any Super Bowl-winning team.

“It’s always difficult when you’re out, but you have to go back to basics and be the best you can be,” Wilson said, per the New York Daily News.

“That’s what I want to do, be the greatest player I can be.”

The former Heisman Trophy winner is in the midst of a two-game suspension that he received on Monday for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drugs policy.

His suspension is one of the longest in NFL history.

Wilson has yet to take the field in Super Bowl 50, which takes place in Houston on Feb. 7.

He is set to play in the AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts on Feb 11.

The Seahawks will face off against the Denver Broncos in the first game of the Super Bowl, which kicks off at 1 p.m.


Wilson is due to have a second sample test on Feb 20.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has repeatedly said that he expects Wilson to be available for the first Super Bowl.

He did not specify whether Wilson would return to the starting lineup after missing the last two games of the suspension.
