A photo of a very unhappy-looking Russell Wilson has gone viral this weekend, with the Denver Broncos starting quarterback taking a load off at a casino.

Wilson has had a torrid season following his trade from the Seattle Seahawks and was unfortunate to suffer a concussion right when he started playing well. The injury was sustained during last week’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Last week, Warren Moon insisted Wilson is the one responsible for his struggles as he’s had his heart set on passing from the pocket though he’s clearly not suited for it.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
