RENTON, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson said Thursday that he has "no doubt" about being able to play Sunday against the New York Jets.

"I feel great. I feel strong," Wilson said. "Obviously practiced yesterday, practiced a full practice and everything like that. ... I'll be ready to go."

Wilson suffered a sprained MCL in his left knee during the third quarter of the team's Week 3 win against the San Francisco 49ers.

Coach Pete Carroll said earlier in the week that he'd be surprised if Wilson were unable to play. The expectation remains that Wilson will make his 68th consecutive start.

Wilson has been wearing a knee brace during practice this week and will keep it on for stability during Sunday's game.

"It's not going to be a hindrance really at all," Wilson said. "I don't mind wearing one. I'm wearing one right now."
